Ahahahaha much appreciated brother. Life definitely goes on after the shave. Crazy first month with all friends and family adjusting/roasting me but now it's almost a dead topic around them. I'm even hooking up with a girl I was with in high school, so I guess the buzz isn't ugly enough to repel all females my age. That being said, one thing that aided the transition was that I displayed absolutely zero outward signs of insecurity and clearly did not care what anyone thought, which kinda forces people to just go along with it or even like it. If your hair is not salvageable (mine was NW3V at a minimum) or you're not gonna take finasteride, buzzing that shit off is the power play socially.
