Saying the stuff below contently

Seriously, you would get turned off by a man because of his hat choice.

Glad I chose to live single. Now I can save up money to buy and customize a Peterbilt 379 instead of wasting money on dates. The saved time will be used to drive my customized truck cab from Ushuaia to Barrow covering some of the "sexiest curves" mother nature has to offer across a diversity of cultures, cuisines, and climates. Then I will publish a book about all I saw and learned about the Americas in my sojourn. Though it will challenge my comfort zones, I ain't backing off.

God gave me a life to live, and I will enjoy it to my hearts content by seeing what he has created in this vast and wonderful world of ours . I cant waste my time thinking if others presume me to be insecure for a relationship. I AM NOT BEING TIED DOWN LIKE DEAD DEER.

Whoops, sorry for my post graduation hangover rant .

So tell us girls, what's your reaction to a guy who approaches you romantically and the first place your eyes go is not to his belt but to the top of his head?
Haha, I take it the mothers on this forum don't appreciate your humor.

I know (or see around) plenty of wealthy, successful men who are bald. They are married to beautiful wives, have million dollar homes, high-paying and sometimes very demanding jobs. I'm not saying these traits make a happy person or a good citizen. But I really don't think baldness is much of a setback for a man.

As for wearing a toupee, I don't think it's really necessary. People aren't going to treat you better just because you wear a toupee.

Yes hair pieces are unattractive to me. Just shave it off if you're balding that badly. Depending on head shape, I find completely bald heads (especially if they have some nicely groomed facial hair) to be a turn on.

Once went to a summertime weekend wedding shindig where an old lover was present. I hadn't seen him in about 7 years and I have to admit I was really loking forward to seeing him again.

I went down to the pool all dolled up and ready to flirt like mad when I saw him in the pool. He was coming out of the water and half his hair was hanging down to his shoulder while the other half was in a regular short haircut. He whipped that long hair over to the other side of his head apparently thinking nobody would notice.
I stopped dead in my tracks. "OMG. Does he really think that is attractive?" I exchanged pleasantries with him but it was such a turn off I had no interest in him after that. My brother later told me this guy came from 4 states away hoping to see me. I felt bad but at that stage in my life I wasn't about to waste time on a guy who had so little self awareness and confidence that he thought a comb over was the way to go.

Later learned he allowed a girlfriend to talk him into this silly hairstyle and he just got in the habit. He subsequently married a woman who convinced him to shave his entire head. Saw a picture of him on Facebook recently and he looks so much better with shaved head than that silly combover. Guess some men can be just as insecure about their hair as women.

Thumbs up Toupee is OK

Yup, same here, ChessieMom!

As for baldness or presence/abscence of a toupee, either way is fine with me. And, as another poster said, I do prefer clean shaven guys.

BTW, I am 55.

Just curious...what would be the difference between this and a girl wearing a padded bra?
Believe it or not the stigma reaches all the way back to the Old Testament: (royalty-free image-no copyright, since it was painted in the 3rd century CE

Here's the story:

So bald guys have been getting a bad rap certainly since the time of Adam & Eve, which is why they'll use anything--fur, hide, even carpet to cover up their bare pate, from which we get the derogatory terms, "rug" and "ear-to-ear carpeting". I've never heard the term "boob-to-boob", unless it's in reference to Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber.

I was depressed for a while. I started going bald around 22 and all I did was look in the mirror and find ways to hide it. I did this for a while and it really stressed me out.

So one day, I just shaved my head. I had to work up to it, and it caused me to be stressed out about being seen bald so I wore a hat all the time.

Eventually, I started to get over it and it became a part of me. I got more comfortable with it, and learned to focus on my other positive attributes. I was 6'1", so I hit the gym, got in shape, bought nice clothes, and started carrying myself with confidence. It really had no impact on my social life. I still got plenty of dates. Once in a while you find a women who is pretty shallow, but for the most part I dated some fairly attractive women who didn't care at all about my lack of hair. My personality, goals, dreams etc were their focus....as it would be if I even had hair.

I'm in my 30s now and it's a non factor. I've been shaved for 10 years now, so it's all I've known. Now with that said....if they did come up with a cure that would grow all my hair back, I'd do it. I'd like the option of growing hair in the winter when it's 10 degrees out! Bald heads get cold!
