So I have a shaved head. Not because I have cancer or alopecia or anything, just because my hair was really damaged and I wanted to. I thought about growing it back out, but honestly, I personally love it. It isn't BALD. Just a buzzcut. Think Negasonic Teenage Warhead from Deadpool. Anyway, I plan on keeping it no matter what, but I'm just curious: any guys out there that would actually be attracted to me? I mean, I'm still feminine looking and stuff, and I wear makeup pretty regularly, not that I think that someone with a shaved head would necessarily have to to still be feminine.
I feel like my biggest issues with dating when it comes to my haircut are 1.) Guys just aren't into it. 2.) Guys assume I'm gay, or 3.) Guys are intimidated by me, both because of my haircut and because I'm generally pretty confident and outgoing. Any tips or insight on any of those problems?

I must admit that I think it would ward off a lot of guys. That said, you're one of the rare types that I think looks very pretty in spite of shaving her head.
Nevertheless, a lot of guys, especially young ones your age, might associate that with a butch lifestyle, maybe even assume sexual orientation form it, and generally find you odd in comparison to the girls who have, say, shoulder-length hair.
All of these qualities are like first impression gut reactions. So if you want to keep the shaved style but find a guy who likes you, you might have a slight disadvantage in the beginning but might be able to lure their interest as they get to know you a bit better and find their first impressions were wrong.2
