3. What are some of the reactions of others as you grew your handlebar moustache? What sort of reactions or comments did you get initially from your significant other?

I get complimented all the time for it. Some people are a little confused at first, because where I am from there isn’t a single person I have seen besides me with one.

My fiancé is also a main reason for it. I wanted a mustache and she thought it would look nice on me to have a handlebar.

4. What are some of the funny or strange comments others have made about your handlebar moustache over time?

Does that come with instructions?

How much for a ride?

I am the fun guy in the group and it really does match my style of how I present myself.

7. Have you been in any moustache contests or attended any such gatherings?

Nope. Not yet. But would love to one day.

Nothing. Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion.

9. What waxes, styling aids or glues to you prefer and why?

Honest Amish Mustache wax. And Wild willies Beard butter

Adds style and class.

Everyone keeping up the great work they already provide.
