I can't tell you how many women I've heard say that Piccard (Patrick Steward) is an uber hotty because of his bald, distinguished head. If you're
stressin', stop (could be what's causing it, too ). There are some major advantages to being or going bald that are downplayed by the media. (The
conspiracy theorist would say it is because they're in cahoots with hair care corporate giants )
You look older. For men, this is an advantage. You gain respect, for whatever reason, usually before the person has met you. Often, people give your
words more weight because they think you've had more experience than you actually have. You also gain respect for the same reason. You won't get
carded nearly as often. When you're with your friends, too, women will look at you with more interest because you look older, and there for
would be more mature and more likely financially independant. Even professors at college will look at you through a different light.
Don't wear a baseball cap to cover it up, though! This destroys any advantage of balding you could get by making you look like a little kid.
Also, studies have shown that college professors are irritated by wearing a hat in class, which could have an affect on your relationship and even
your grade, if you have a dingus. A combover, too, will make you appear both foolish and concealing.
Don't sweat it if you do end up losing your hair. It's a threat that looms over me, as my dad has been balding since he was 18, but one that
doesn't bother me anymore. Right now I'll enjoy having hair, if it leaves, though, I'll enjoy not having hair...And saving buckets of cash on
shampoo and conditioner
