Was told by my barber that I have about two years left with hair before the thinning gets to the point where I need to shave it. Am absolutely gutted. How many girls would not even consider a guy because he's losing (or has lost) his hair. by the way I am at least at an age where this may considered normal (ish) rather than bald at 30 or something.
PS: Would a comb over be worth it just for the comedy value or would people miss the point and think I was doing it to try and compensate?

Rogaine has limited use, what's considered the best right now is Finasteride, which is generic Propecia, and very cheap if you have insurance.
While thinning hair or balding is noticeable, and obviously a negative to whatever extent, the important thing is this:
The main problem men with thinning hair face isn't their looks, it's their lack of confidence. Most men lose their hair, and women notice, but it doesn't really affect the way they feel towards a guy unless he acts differently. Have you ever seen a really confident bald guy? Women will clamor over him. If you don't think your hair matters, neither will they. In fact, having confidence despite a shiny head will make them notice how confident you are entirely outside your appearance.2
