I wouldn't.
My friend, a widow, has met a nice man on an online dating service. She likes everything about him, so far, except he wears a toupee. At some point, when she knows him better she will broach the subject, but what if he is so attached to it he won't consider getting rid of it?
What would you do?
I should add that it's an obvious rug, not a good one.

Once I got to know him better, I would ask him to take it off.
Then, hopefully he will leave it off. If I liked it off, I would tell him how much nicer he looks with it off.

I would not date a man with a rug or hair plugs either....

Once went on a blind date with a guy and the first thing I noticed was the hair plugs. After that the words just stuck in my throat. I could not get past it.

Plugs are as far as I would go.

If it's a problem hat she can't get past, she should probably tell him about it. If that is how he greeted her the first time, he's probably not aware of how unattractive it is.

ETA: I love bald men, so I see no need for enhancements to begin with.

I never even knew what a toupee was until today.

Wiki says this:
The desire to wear hairpieces is a response to a long-standing bias against balding that crosses cultures, dating to at least 3100 BC

3100 BC is something

Dude. Lose the rug.
I have posted pics to the what do I look like thread and to my profile...I've been baldish since age 18.
ESPECIALLY once you are 30+...I find MANY women that not only like a baldish look, they LOVE it.

Is this guy like 60? Totally a generational thing Im thinking. Tell him. Tell him now.

If a toupee is a dealbreaker for your friend she should NOT date this guy. She's trying to change him, and that's just wrong. Granted, most people prefer a bald guy to a guy who wears a toupee - especially a bad one, but it sounds as if she's going into this thing trying to change the poor guy! She should cut him loose if it's not her cup of tea. I'm sure this nice gentleman can find other ladies to date who will be more accepting of him - just the way he is - toupee and all.

I would prefer a nice toupee to a bald head. And I don't think it's my place to tell somebody whether to wear it or not even if I had the opposite preference. If I went bald I'd most certainly wear a wig, so I can relate to men missing their hair and their old look, too.
