The boyfriend didn't really sound like that much of a dick to me. Sure it was probably embarrassing to OP, but no matter how you bring this subject up, it's probably going to be a little embarrassing. Women don't usually like hair on their face, so better for your boyfriend to point it out than some random person on the street.
that's apocryphal. hair may look like it's growing back thicker (since hair tapers as it grows, so you're seeing the thickest part as stubble comes back in) but shaving has no effect on later diameter of hair. if you don't want to shave, do so, but don't use "it makes your hair thicker" as an excuse. since wax is inadvisable on the face due to sensitivity, an alternative many women who need to depilate the face, especially the upper lip area is fine-grain sandpaper. many health and beauty stores sell little finger condom things with sandpaper pads you can use to rub your undesired hair away without stubble from shaving or burns from wax
Sucks that he was kinda rude about it. But how hairy is your face for it to be an issue? If it's a whole bearded lady situation then YDI.
He didn't really insult her though, he just asked her a question. It's a sensitive topic for a lot of women I'm sure, but wouldn't you want a person you care about (the boyfriend in this situation) to say something about it, as opposed to someone who might care a lot less about your feelings?

Dump him, no boyfriend should be allowed to control when you shave. My boyfriend doesn't care if I don't shave for weeks - as he shouldn't. Your boyfriend is plain rude.
Boy, there are plenty of people out there who prefer natural women--myself among them. And unless you regularly shave all the hair off your body and fully comprehend how obnoxious a task it is, you have no point of reference for this discussion and, regardless, no right to insist others groom themselves your way for your pleasure. You want to date someone who's 100% always buttery smooth, you go put that on your tinder profile and see how many hits you get.
