First Ask Abby Question

Dear Abby…

My boyfriend is partaking in no-shave November; I was wondering if it was acceptable if I also participated?

Thanks, Anonymous


Contrary to what many people believe, no-shave November or Movember, is actually a non-profit organization whose mission is the raise awareness and funds for cancer prevention, research and education.  So, yes it is acceptable if you are participating in the cause and understand what Movember actually stands for.  Will boys like you? Well I guess it just depends on what they feel about hair all over.  For many girls, it is uncomfortable and feel gross and for boys they are sometimes shocked because that is not the norm.  But if that doesn’t bother you and you don’t care what you’re boyfriend feels, hey go right ahead and not shave for a month.  

Thank you for your question,
