Work with what you got is how I feel.

Be confident in who you are, bald or not.

Just a lame comment. Please ignore. My belt's wrapped too tight around my head, obviously.

I found this old thread about how a guys reacted to his going bald. For the guys it might be interesting. For the girls, probably a bore. So guys, especially those who are losin' it:

The Psychological Impact of Balding in My 20's

The OP thinks women like to check out men's packages as soon as we meet them.

Just a tidbit a lot of guys aren't aware of:

Quote:
the sex chromosomes, X and or Y, determines whether we develop as male or female. Men have an X and a Y, women have two Xs.

The gene is carried on your X chromosome. You get the X chromosome from your mother, and the Y from your father. But here's the rub: women get one X from their mother and one X from their father; so check out your mother's dad and see if he's bald. If so, you have a 50% chance of getting the same bald gene he had.

Yeah, there are a few guys who start balding in their early 20's, and sometimes even late teens. There were certainly a few at my ten year high school reunion (age 27-28).

It actually makes total sense to me that a 25-30-year-old woman would say a guy has to have hair, since that's the age when there are starting to be some bald guys (particularly if she's dating guys a few years older), but there are still more than enough guys with hair that she can get away with having that requirement. You probably won't hear as many 50-year-old women list baldness as a deal-breaker, because that would be eliminating a significant portion of the dating pool for her.

Aren't those typically located below the belt?

The only time a belt has been one of the first things I've noticed on a guy is when I lived in Texas and there would be guys who wear those giant ridiculous rodeo-style belt buckles.

As for toupees, OP, if it's so obvious that it's the first thing we notice about him, he's probably much better off just rocking the baldness. If it's such a good piece that we can't tell, then I guess it doesn't matter, though we might be in for a surprise later when running our fingers through his hair.

I have never really paid that much attention to a man's hairline to even wonder if he is wearing a toupe let actually knowing for sure.
My husband is balding and has been since I've known him so hair loss is not an issue with me, it is part of him and I love him.

I prefer bald over a toupee.
I've seen many sexy bald men with confidence. Confidence is essential.

Men who have the confidence to just go/be bald are very sexy.
