To start off, I'm not some guy losing his hair in his mid 30's, I just turned twenty, and the hair is practically coming out by the fistful when I take showers. I am a pretty average looking guy, and the hair loss doesn't show a lot yet, but I know where its going, and I'll probably be getting there sooner than later.
Question for Girls: How much does this matter to girls? Is it a big turn off when you can see a guy is going bald, especially if he is around your age? For girls with boyfriends, how big of an issue would it be for you if your boyfriend starting balding?
Question for Guys: I know some of you out there have gone through the same thing, whether at my age or later. Is there some way to make it look, if not good, then at least acceptable, or decent? I'm talking about what you can do with what hair you have left here, both while you are going bald, and after. Also any helpful tips or experiences you could share?

I don't know if you're the same guy who asked this question before. If you're not, here's my story. I started balding at 25 and soon after started shaving my head. Some girls just don't like bald; it's just something you have to live with. Look at it this way, some girls don't like long hair, some girls don't like curly hair others like striaght, etc.. The numbers kind of all work out the same. The same number of girls are going to like you shaved will be the same number of girls that liked your goofy hair style. The numbers don't change; it's just a new set of girls.
When I fist started balding, I thought it was the end but nothing really changed. I didn't have a problem getting dates before, and I didn't have problems getting dates after. My pictures are in my profile if you want to see a normal guy with a shaved head. I like being bald, much less work, and I never have a bad hair day! Thinking back; I was much more self conscious with hair, wondering how does my hair look? I'm now 36, engaged to a beautiful woman, and I haven't thought "how does my hair look in a long time?" Being bald does have its perks!0
