Enjoy who you are: Congratulations on these steps in becoming a man. You suggest you have both muscle mass and muscle definition ("skinny") and these are great -- i hope you'll continue to lead an athletic lifestyle. I'm having some trouble understanding your question. If you want a thicker beard, this may or may not come with time depending on your genes; many women prefer a sparsely-bearded man. Can you clarify?
