The cruel dating term means the feeling which takes over when a person wonders if they are attracted to their partner or just his beard.
While facial hair have become an increasingly popular style statement for men across the globe with trends such as no shave November taking over, it is also giving rise to a dating trend. In times when a lot of options are available online and all one needs to do for a date is swipe, how people look on social media usually takes centre stage.
It has been observed that after going out a few times, people start to wonder if their partner’s cheekbones are as sharp and if his jawline is as strong as it appeared before. What a lot of them are unsure about is if the person is really good-looking or do they just have good facial hair.
The flawless image of the other person seen on social media goes out of the picture and gives way to confusion which is termed as ‘shaveducking’. The cruel new dating term means the uneasy feeling which takes over when a person wonders if they are attracted to their partner or just his beard.
As beards become trendy, more people are reporting this feeling which can strike at any stage in a relationship. It can also happen deep into a relationship as the person may suddenly feel repulsed when their partner goes clean shaven.
