    I started when I was 14 because I was in Air Cadets. I still only need to shave every other day or so.

    Started shaving at about 16, but today I have a beard. I've got better things to do than to spend a few minutes stripping the hair off from my face each and every day.

    13 or 14. I'm with Bill here, I wish I could get away with once a week. I should shave everyday, but to prevent a perpetually sore face I usually shave every other day.

    I think I started shaving 4 years ago when I was 13. Right now, I'm growing a goatee, so that reduces the amount of time it takes me to shave, plus I don't have to do so that often.

    If anyone's interested I know a place that sells pubic wigs, makes you look years older and more macho, bwahaha!![​IMG]
    Sad thing is, when we get older we'll have more hair in our ears than on our heads, that ain't right!
    I prob started shaving when I was 11-12, I was always hairy, I looked like a tribble in my baby photos, got in to see a lot of x-rated movies when I was a kid, all I had to do was look unshaven and dishevelled [aargh! exactly what I look like now!!].
    Theres an old saying I believe in.. "Bird never make nest in bare tree", [ok actually I heard it in an old Bond movie, but I like it].[​IMG]

    I think I started about 17. I have to shave every day, but just becuase I work in a conservative business and need to look well groomed. I dont get a lot of growth in just one day. I have patchy facial hair. My chin and upper lip are good, then I have about a two finger width before I have any hair on my cheeks, then a about another 3 fingers before my "sidburns". All my facial hair if left to grow is sparse enough that it could never be called a beard. Probably more info than you needed though. Oh, and I'm 24 now.

    First time was when I was 19 and was in Basic Training for the Air Force. Hmmm, also got my head shaved that day (involuntary for both). [​IMG]

    I don't really remember, the first time I shaved was long before I had any real facial hair so it was early teens. The only time I've shaved consistently was when I was a courier for Fedex because beards were forbidden.
