Relationship Protocol: How Often Do You Shave Your Legs?

When you're settled in a happy, loving relationship, it can be easy to let primping fall by the wayside, like forgoing sexy lingerie for comfy PJ pants. Of course, it's important to keep the romance alive, but I'm wondering — how often do you shave your legs when you're settled down in a cozy relationship?

Alright, so I signed up for this community specifically to post a comment on this article! I am 20, and I have never shaved my legs, ever. The catch: I do have visible hair. I have black hair; my Japanese part showing through. I just wanted to let everyone know that not everyone thinks it's horrible that you have leg hair! I only mildly understand this whole leg-shaving thing myself. Admittedly though, I am a bit of a hippie.

what about "i don't, ever" ;) i epilate once a week. and i have friends who are lucky enough that don't need to do anything at all. so i guess this community is for the hairy ;)))

I'm single so I only shave when my legs will be showing which is usually once a week for church anyway. Granted it's still cool and I'm wearing stockings, still. Something insanely weird to me about being hairy and wearing stockings. Lol. Other than that... like never. Lol. But once there's a man in the picture, oh yeah it'll be more often more just to feel all the more feminine.

i epilate my legs so i only need to do it every couple of weeks i recommend it, as its less painful than waxing and the hairs get thinner and take longer to grow back

Regardless, if I'm in a relationship or not...I keep my legs hairless. I'm like skigurl...everytime I take a shower it's just a couple of swipes. I can go every other day, but it's a personal choice for me...I don't want hairy legs. Btw., I'm married & we've been together for 18 years now...and my shaving habits are the same as when I was single. Also since, the first time I started shaving on a regular basis.

Everday. I'm part greek/part Irish so I have pale skin and fast growing black hair!I've been trying to skip a day in the winter because my skin is sensitive and dry, but I hate how it feels.

Where's the none option? Fortunately, I don't have any hair on my legs at all..

funny how some people shave less and some shave more when they're in a relationship.... Every two days for me. Swimming's part of my regular workout...

Other. I think shaving is so archaic so i love my spray on, shower off spray. And i do it when i notice it and predominantly during warm to hot weather. And no, it has no bearing on whether there is a man around or not.

I wax, so I shave my legs maybe a couple times a year. I am looking forward to the day none of my hair grows back!

I wax or use the epilator. I'd have the amazonian forest on my legs if I shaved that much!

i wax so im good for the periods of time when the hubby is away. i epilate in between if i have to, b/c shaving makes my hair grow back thick and fast!

Only a few times a week - I only see my boy on the weekends so Friday Saturday and Sunday is all for me.

I break out so bad when I shave - I've tried just about everything so I usually avoid it. My boyfriend prefers it smooth but he feels so bad for me when I'm red and itchy he doesn't mind.

glad I'm among the majority! I'm lucky to do a couple times/week

I live in Florida so there aren't many days of wearing pants! I have to shave every other day if not every day. If we get a cold spell and I can get away with wearing pants I will go maybe every 2 days but since I am so use to shaving so often my hair seems to grow back faster.

I'm lazy. Maybe once a week? Sometimes longer? My hair doesn't grow too quickly and I've never been that concerned about it.

Same here Starangel82! aimeeb, I get stubble the next day too! It's so annoying. That's partially why I don't bother shaving all the time, it seems pointless unless I'm going to show my legs. Even in summer, I wear pants a lot, so I don't shave all the time, or I only shave to the knee since I don't wear shorts-just gauchos or a skirt/dress. I do start to feel gross when it gets kinda long, but who am I trying to impress?

In the winter about every 2-3 days. To be honest I get stubble the day after shaving. Not sure why... In the summer I do it just about every day.

I still shave often. I wear skirts all the time and I can't stand to have prickly legs.

I am with all the girls who said they hate the ones who have to shave once a week or barely ever...grrr! I'm pale with extremely fast growing black hairs... I seriously feel like I should shave twice a day! I do have the Braun epilator thing though... I should go back to that... it definitely makes it easier....
