This is a guest post by Tony of SirHare.com who offer high quality grooming products for men. Int his post he sheds light on going bald through years of his own experience.
Women are attracted to men for a variety of reasons. Although it usually starts with physical attraction, she will quickly grow tired of staring at you, and those devilishly charming looks will not last forever. You must offer much more than your 6 pack of abs, your thick flowing hair, and your GQ looks to keep her around.
You are different though, your hair isn’t as nice and thick as it once was. Your scalp is peeking through that forest of hair that is no more.
You are balding, so what do you do?
Women don’t like bald men, right!? Everyone will joke about your balding! Your life is over!
You keep waiting for the drugs you bought from the infomercials to regrow your hair, but they aren’t working!
It’s easy to get into a state of panic, but we are here to help, so take a deep breath , sit down and relax. Although it seems terrible, it’s not the end of the world, and yes you can still be great with women even when you’re dating bald.
Take a minute and remember that first zit you had as a teenager, your life was over right? The girls would never date a guy with a zit on his face, but I bet you were concerned much more than anyone else was. Your hair or lack thereof is the same story.
Did you know that 40% of men have noticeable hair loss by age 35? So you might be thinking “oh crap, I’m done for!” but all is not lost. Anyways, enough with the nihilistic groaning, what should you do to make sure that you can still attract the opposite sex with your balding head?
Here are 4 Simple Tips to Get You Through it:
1) Don’t let your hair grow out and try to cover bald spots with longer hair. This is also known as a combover and it’s not popular with the ladies at all.
2) Do get yourself a short haircut. The shorter the better, so buzz it or shave it if you are comfortable. A short haircut makes the balding less noticeable and speaks confidence.
3) Be confident. The way you carry yourself has a lot to do with how attractive you are. Walk up and talk to the ladies and don’t wait for them to come to you.
4) Someone is going to joke about your hair, so get ready. Have fun with it and be witty with your response. Something like “ladies love running their fingers through my hair” is a funny way of showing your confidence and turns the joke around on them.
I started losing my hair when I was 19 and decided to embrace baldness and shave it off. I’ve been shaving my head for years and wouldn’t want hair if there were a miracle drug to grow it.
I have an beautiful wife and 3 children now, so you can say that I did just fine with the ladies. Good luck and remember you are your own worst critic!
