Those were only the ones who were confident enough to go to college while bald .I can't out of respect for their privacy but I have no reason to make this up. But I agree it's exceedingly rare. I went to a large public University for college and out of the thousands of young men on campus and in the city, I could only count on one hand the number of Norwood 5's and 6's in their early twenties. This is like 4 / 25,000+, so a staggering minority.
I decided to do some actual research, I think the online success rate is highly inflated for guys for those who are average with hair (of course why would we care).
I only bring this up, because, if you think the success rate is 80 and it drops to 10 then yes that is huge. But if you original success rate was already 20 and it dropped to 10...is it really that big?

I wasn't even really referencing Tinder, that app is flawed for many reasons.
And well sure you are right, if you weren't really getting a lot of interest with a full head of hair, you probably had some other issues you needed to fix, and losing your hair wouldn't really matter anyway.
You'll never really find an accurate study of someone trying this with a full head of hair, and slick bald. It would just be a messed up and demoralizing exercise. But nevertheless if you do find it, it would be interesting to see what happened.
If you really wanted to test it on yourself, use photoshop to give yourself a shaved head (with no hairline, that's the important part...) and see what results you get.
I have actually shaved my head before and was at a 2.5-3 Norwood didn't post pictures but I did have dates and some, oddly the younger two, didn't mind it or care for it. I personally thought it was bad *** (being Indian), it was definitely a villain look hahaha. They get the second hottest girls. hahaha.
If I am bored, I will try again (I do still have a few shaved head pictures).
One of the guys I described is like that he is very normie. Posted a picture of his horseshoe grown out and then a picture of him shaved just as a jokeJust to put the whole thing in perspective. Do you guys think us on this hairloss fourm care more or less about our hair than the counterpart who's balding/shaved and not on this site? Clearly, a lot more. What about the active users from 2/3+ years ago who havent logged on since? Did they just commit suicide? Lol.
I was at a social event yesterday and I cant tell you the amount of bald people I saw with ur dome’s shaved just walking around with their wifes/girlfriends. What do you say to them? “Yo dude you’re bald and ugly and you need to just stop. Stop going to work, get an account on HairLossTalk.com and start regrowing your hair cuz its just not working out man”. Lmao, they will prob laugh their *** off at you.
When you broaden your perspective to outside of this forum and the select negative videos some retards post on here, you truely realize how many people just dont give a f*** and still live a very good life.
But hey man, its the worst thing every bro Id rather not have legs or arms.
