You only gave us 2 choices. What about:

Shave in the summer when someone might see it, but let it grow for the winter.

I'm well into winter season.

For me it's not about if people can see it or not, it's about the feeling of it. I couldn't let my legs go hairy cause they FEEL hairy, and that grosses me out.

Yeah, I'm the same, but the backs of my thighs tend to have darker, coarser hair. It's a pain because I can't SEE back there and have to spend minutes slowly touching the back of my thigh to make sure I grabbed every damn hair.

I just want to update and say I finally shaved last night. You know, in case any of you were losing sleep over it. Carry on.

I shave my legs about every other day. I'd shave everyday, but my skin can't take that much of the razor. For a while I was a lot more self conscious about my second day leg hair when it wasn't as bad as I imagined it to be. I used to not let my BF touch my second day legs because I was afraid he would think that it's gross. One day he touched my leg when I wasn't paying attention and said he didn't know what I was talking about and that he couldn't even tell that I hadn't shaved. I guess sometimes it's not as bad as we think.

I can't shave every day either, my skin gets dried out and cracked enough as it is just doing it every other day. Lotion is our friend.

My second-day stubble is prickly, at least it feels that way to me, and I will do everything in my power to keep my SO from touching my legs until I shave again. He picks on me if he feels any stubble so I figure it's either shave the legs to avoid his teasing or shave off one of his eyebrows while he sleeps. He'd probably get really mad at me if I chose the second option.

Wow. Some of you are really dedicated to this. When I still shaved my legs I did so once a week. Now I get waxed once a month. A few times I've gone for fairly long stretches in between waxes. It's funny, my husband won't notice for ages, until one day he'll be like "umm, honey, why are your legs as hairy as mine?" Slight exaggeration there, haha. I'd prefer to be hair-free all the time, but sometimes I get lazy and just don't care.

Yep. Knees and below is much coarser and darker. The hair on the backs of my thighs is so fine that I can't shave it even if I try-- the razor just doesn't grab it. The fronts I usually do shave, though I could probably get away with not shaving 'em easily.
