I cannot ever in my life remember ever wanting my beard to grow FASTER.... Not long ago I was trying to avoid the whole process; sometimes going an entire week without shaving (and, no, I'm definatley not one of those guys that look good in stubble..... just makes me look unshaven) I am so hooked now that I find myself wishing I could shave more often, only I don't think my skin could withstand such exuberance! I am limiting myself to every other day (at least until my technique improves a bit)
They do say, however: a true gentleman shaves twice a day. I guess the most important thing would be how one's better-half felt about it. And how well your face holds up......
