I shave whenever I feel it's time. My thoughts is shaving shouldn't feel mandatory or forced. It should come naturally like fluid's motion from a spring waterfall. The waterbody maneuvers it's way around the rocks. Adaptable stream. When I become immersed into a highly stimulating project I find myself not concerned with my grooming requirements. To me shaving is viewed as recreational.

Agree with this.  I always think my face feel is the best indicator of when I am ready for a shave.  I also find that the better post shave routine I have, the quicker my face would be ready for another shave.

Pretty well every day. I don’t like the look or feel of stubble and I feel clean and invigorated after a shave. In my book there’s nothing better than a good shave to get the day off to a good start.

Pretty much every day; I estimate I miss maybe 5 days a year.  Shaving is something I look forward to, hate to miss it.

Every day mostly...caveated because sometimes I feel lazy.  That being said if my facial hair grew fast enough, and I had the time, I would shave twice a day most days!

I shave once a day to almost BBS, I could probably go 2 days as it's smooth enough that I have no 5 O'clock shadow the next morning.

Sunday morning at 7-8 am.  Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons around 3-4 pm.  Unless it's necessary on the other days (sometimes), that is the routine that works for me and provides the best shaves and least possibility of irritation after too many daily shaves in a row.

I shave every morning except Saturday and I skip it unless we are on an adventure. Saturday is usually spent around the house.

I shave every day or every other day.  I enjoy a good shave and a smooth face.
In the summer season I use an alcohol based aftershave after applying and rinsing off my alum bloc.
In colder, dryer weather, (most of the year), an after shave balm after the alum bloc.

Working from home, I shave roughly every other day.  Sometimes I might go a day or so more but I don't like to.  Eventually my beard becomes itchy.  Can't stand that.  And faceturbating is so much more fun immediately after a shave.  But for 30+ years I would shave every day for the job.  I tend to get a better shave if I skip a day as opposed to shaving two days in a row.  But I don't think it is a closer shave.  Just less irritation.

I used to shave every 2-3 days. As cartridges got more and more expensive, it turned into 4-5 days or when the skin under my facial hair started getting irritated. I get skin irritation just by having long hair. Shaving then was a chore and my face would feel scratched and irritated for hours after the shave. I would also have acne issues. 

A little over 2 years ago, I started wet shaving with a DE razor. Initially, I would shave every 2-3 days. Now I shave every day WTG and ATG followed by an alcoholic aftershave which is then followed by an aftershave balm.

every day to every other day.  Usually depends on my work and childcare schedule.   If the kid needs a lot of attention then I can't spend the time shaving after I work out.

Every day as this needs less passes and my face loves the daily massage with brush and great soap. I'm amazed that with wonderful razors and soap, some guys shave only once or twice a week! Seems they have the willpower to wait a few days to enjoy a shave. I can't wait to enjoy it every day.

I shave every day, almost. More accurately, I shave six days out of the week. I always end up skipping Saturday or Sunday.

That actually seems like a good strategy, CHSeifert. I may try this next week. I feel like I don't let my skin rest as much as I should.

It surely is but the temptation to shave everyday is more overpowering for me. I was on off yesterday from work and was lazing around the whole day before I grabbed my razor and went for a shave at 6pm.

Pretty well every day.  I might skip 1-3 days a month.

Why would I deny myself the opportunity of bliss?

Hey, it's inexpensive, hygienic, hassle-free, and you can't catch anything.
