Is baldness a big turn-off?

I'm 32 and have a full head of hair, but it's been slowly thinning in front for the last two years. It's not really noticeable yet, but I'm concerned that it will be noticeable very soon, and that dating will be much harder once it is.

How much of a turn-off is it to women to date a bald guy or a guy with thinning hair?

  • I started losing my hair at 17, so dont feel bad.

    I think balding itself isn't so much a turn off to women, but the confidence that you lose when you lose your hair can be offputting.

    It takes awhile to kind of get over it. For me especially, as someone your age can look at a lot of his friends and say "hey your losing it with me", whenever i was losing mine, there was no one my age who i could relate to.

    All that said, i still had a normal dating life and had my share of sex with pretty good looking girls really. It always surprised me, but i was never bitter or negative about my hair loss and it almost never came up in conversation.

    If i could turn women on at such a young age and balding, surely you'll be fine at 32 years old when more women are used to balding men.

    In other words, your good! I mostly just keep my head shaved, not with a razor, i use clippers. Shaving it with a razor is an option too, but requires more upkeep. I just advise that you try to keep it as short as possible.

    • Exactly... respect for you going bald at 17 ... I started balding at 18 so I can relate.

      I've kept it to a number 4 buzz cutt

    • Are you thinning all over as opposed to having a bald patch? I started and the temples, but thinned everywhere.

    • A receding hairline.

      It's really kind of thin all over. I wish at least the rest of my hair was thick, then I would probably do like you do with a 4 or so. But I actually take it down to a zero so there's just a bit of stubble

  • No issue for me! I would think there are some women who would be understanding about it and see no problem either! It happens and if you really can't control it, no problemo! :) There are other things to worry about than hair thinning!

  • I wouldn't care if we clicked as people. And I hear the older we get, the less we care... so go you, if you're not after 20 year olds.

    • How unlucky :( ... A girl my GF knows has this immune disease which causes her to lose big chunks of her hair... but unlike your mother, she deserves it.

  • I don't think baldness is a turn off, but I would suggest just going ahead and shaving it off. It's usually that in between look that turns girls off.

  • magnesium! eat more. put some directly on your scalp. not only will it grow back, but faster and healthier than before. supposedly using a small amout of white iodine works too.

  • Most girls vastly prefer men with hair. Even those that don't only prefer it on men who have the right face and skull shape.

    I'd suggest looking into minoxidil, finasteride and ketoconazale. These will drastically slow down and possibly stop your hair loss. Do your research though, since finasteride can have some nasty side effects.

    Having said that many men are balding by your age, so its nowhere near as big of a deal as it would be if you were 10 years younger.

  • It's not... there are plenty of girls out there who don't care for hair.
