    Girlfriend and Hairloss

    Right now my hair looks kind of ok but it's getting thinner and thinner every day, under a bright light it looks really bad.
    Obviously I'm really depressed about it, but a few days ago my girlfriend said something that made me feel even worse; she was joking about some guy we know who's completely bald, about how shiny his head is and how she finds it really attractive (she was being cynical).
    That remark made me feel really bad about my hair loss, cause she probably doesn't realize that I'm losing my hair so she didn't try to hide the way she feels about bald men.
    I feel like when my hairloss will eventually become noticeable I'll be placing her in an uncomfortable situation, being a 19 years old dating a 22 years old whose losing his hair, you're not supposed to be losing you're hair at that age! you're supposed to be young and beautiful!
    So basically I'm asking for advice about how to go through hairloss with a girlfriend who doesn't like bald men.

    She is a ****. To sarcastically call a bald guy attractive is just a douche move on her part because the guy can't help it.... and she should realize that and show some restraint and class.
    Lets face it, confidence will never frame your face properly....a girl can't run her fingers through your confidence.

    No it wasn't like that, I apologize, it's difficult for me to write in English (not my native language)
    Some bald guy from her work was hitting on her and I told her, just between me and her, that he looks really good and she should totally go for him so she laughed and said that he does look really good especially with that bald head etc.
    She wasn't making fun of him IN FRONT of him, I would never date someone like that.

    Prepare yourself for the inevitable and dump her,before she dumps you.

    Maybe he was asking for it by blatantly hitting on her. Sounds like you initiated the teasing yourself. Now I want you to go bald so you can know what it feels like to have people look at you like a joke. Good day.

    I was in a similar situation once except I was the instigator....

    Myself and my girlfriend at the time (18) were talking about a coworker we both worked with and I jokingly accused her of being attracted to him. I just remember she turned up her nose and wrinkled her face and she was like "no way, i'm not attracted to him, he's BALD".

    I just remember seeing the certainty in her eyes that she wasn't attracted to the bald guy. Funny thing was I almost felt bad for the guy because my own girlfriend wasn't attracted to him! I liked the guy, he was super chill and funny and he was a good boss.

    I learned that day that bald men just aren't much competition to guys with hair.

    To be fair it does depend on the woman, some dont care, though undoubtedly plenty do. The question is, would you want a woman who was that shallow? I know I wouldnt but there are plenty on here who want precisely that kind of woman and i think that is where a lot of the trouble can creep in. When guys are shallow themselves but havent got the materials to facilitate the prejudices they have, they become trapped by their own conceit. Not accusing anyone whos posted of that btw.

    I dont think women should be deemed shalow just because they dont like bald men....infact can you blame them,we look embarrassing.

    Women are not shallow just because they don't find bald men attractive. Hell, a lot of us don't find our bald(ing) selves attractive. I want to be with a woman who finds me attractive, even if I don't find my bald head attractive.

    As far as relationship advice is concerned no reason to breakup over this. If she begins showing you disinterest and doesn't find YOU attractive then you can do something about it. Preemptively breaking up doesn't make any senses. There is a lot more to a relationship then hair.

    "There is alot more to a relationship than hair".Obviously not in the OPs partners case,or else he wouldnt be on here stressing over a few lost strands.
