Good for you! My fiancé started losing his hair when he was 19 (and I find him to be attractive as he is, would not want him to have his hair back). Sometimes it's not a matter of age and is usually, so I remember from pharmacy school, a sign of a lot of testosterone (so this can be a desirable thing for some women, depending on one's interest...). A number of men as I recall look just fine without a full head of hair. Don't know what the big fear is, if there is any (there shouldn't be) about losing it either prematurely or not.

I don't know, but I'm sure certain posters will somehow blame it on women.

Though I still have a lot of hair left, I've read for some, losing one's hair is a big thing. In the end, to each their own....apparently it gives some guys confidence to wear their hair in a certain way even though some may think it looks silly.

I dunno. I'll take a kind heart and a good soul over a full head of hair any day. We all have our insecurities and if a comb-over makes a guy feel better, who cares? Really.

I almost threw out.

My guess were they were religious. You knew the people who did wierd things to keep a commandment; that including me.

This is the case in my family.

My dad's attitude is, "It's my hair, I'll wear it how I want to, so feel free to **** up a rope."

Fair enough.

Why do you care? Surely you can't think someone else's hair is any of your business?

Something else to add: A comb-over will definitely age a bald guy - IMHO it will make a guy look 10+ years older than he is already.

Conversely, if a bald guy shaves his head he may still look his age, and in some cases may look younger than he is already. He typically won't look older. Conversely, if a bald guy lets his remaining hair grow out, he typically will look older than he is.

My thoughts exactly . Very sexy guy back in the day.

Personally I think the shaved head look is very attractive. But if a guy has a receding hairline & is just letting himself go bald naturally without shaving it, that's fine too.

As Bande1102 very aptly put it, a kind heart & a good soul are what matter, not how much hair the guy has
