To want dp to get rid of his monobrow?

Ok please don't flame me, ultimately it's his face and he can do exactly as he wants with it, but I'm just asking for people to be completely honest.

He has a meet in the middle brow, sometimes he asks me to pluck it and sometimes does it himself, he makes a bit of a joke about it, and sometimes I'll jokingly but half serious say come to the salon and I'll do your eyebrows. If I pluck it he moans that it hurts and say he doesn't want it done and it's normal and natural, but I'm not sure if he's joking because other times he asks me to do it or does it himself.

Anyway I'd definitely prefer he got rid of it, which is perhaps mean of me? But then if I wanted to grow my eyebrows or leg or armpit hair I could but I'm sure dp would prefer me not to.

You cant tell other people what go do with their bodies

YABU. He knows how to remove it if he wants to.

Tell him it's you or the monobrow
And I'm not even joking

I agree, but but he does prefer me to remove hair in certain places and comments/takes the piss if I let it slip, isn't that the same?

Print a pic of Bert from sesame st.
Stick it over the mirror.
Works for my ds.

ShatnersBassoon Mon 24-Mar-14 11:23:08

Yes, it's the same. He's being mean to you. He has to stop.

Locketjuice Mon 24-Mar-14 11:23:24

God no. I would have to get him to remove it.. Dp gets nose hairs.. It was me or the hair.. Luckily he chose me grin

pyjamaramadrama Mon 24-Mar-14 11:23:37

My body hair I mean, and I'm fair so not even that hairy, he'll pretend to stroke me and say I'm a bit furry.

pyjamaramadrama Mon 24-Mar-14 11:27:08

There's no nastiness there between either of us, it's all jest, he's a right scruff who doesn't even iron his clothes and he doesn't give a stuff what I wear etc which is nice.

Then you tell him to piss off, quite frankly!!!

I cannot understand this obsession with women being hairless. Why does it matter, except for on her head. God forbid an adult female in Western society decide she wants a number one or two haircut!!!!

From a hairy legged, short head hair female!

I don't think you're being unreasonable, OP. It IS his face but you're the one that loves it has to look at it and kiss it.

I my husband was sporting one, I'd tell him that it wasn't there when we were dating so it's an unwelcome addition and doesn't make him in any way appealing to me, in fact, it's a complete turn-off (because it would be for me).

I know that he would also say something unflattering were I to stubbornly cultivate such a thing on my face too.

I had to laugh at Bert.

I guess it depends on whether you are with someone primarily for their looks.

If you are only together because of appearance then it makes sense to ditch them if their appearance putting on post baby weight...

If you married them because of who they are then this isn't an issue.

CoffeeTea103 Mon 24-Mar-14 13:25:24

Yanbu , it's not a pretty sight.

pyjamaramadrama Mon 24-Mar-14 14:08:53

He hasn't just grown it he's always had it since I met him.

I'm not with him for his look although a small amount of personal grooming can make someone more attractive.

pyjamaramadrama Mon 24-Mar-14 14:17:24

Btw don't know about post baby weight we've both put on some post pizza weight but the hair just looks a bit strange.

Get him to wax it if he's asking you to pluck it for him, less stressful than plucking! that's how I get rid of mine

Otherwise, tell him to eff off when commenting on your appearance and leave him alone about his.

My husband had a proper monobrow when we met, he was like a Neanderthal ( but handsome with it). He broached the subject himself when one of his leaving gifts from work was a cartoon of him making a big feature of the brow. So I told him the various options, and he went along to a men's grooming parlour or whatever they're called and had it waxed. The difference was amazing! You could properly see his beautiful eyes and it changed his whole facial appearance. Before he looked permanently angry and it detracted from his good looks. Now he still goes to have them done but the beautician threads them now, much less painful.

You've put on post pizza weight??? Now that is more odd than two monobrows put together....

HemlockStarglimmer Mon 24-Mar-14 14:36:48

My husband had a mild monobrow when we met. I used to pluck it for him.
Then some years ago I persuaded him to have it waxed (by the woman who came to MIL's and did all her pampering/beautifying). I don't know quite what she did but it was very painful and bled a lot. However, it has never grown back!

Wish that would happen with mine!

pyjamaramadrama Mon 24-Mar-14 14:45:47

Sorry should have said post eating pizza and chips weight.

I think it's reasonable to have and express a preference, but not reasonable to try to enforce it.
