    I was 18 when it started. The progression on the Norwood Scale wasn't that bad at the beginning, but the worsening diffuse thinning made it impossible to style my hair when I reached the age of 22 or 23. Acute and disastrous flare-ups of this disease* occurred when I was 24 and 29 and did cost me about two stages on the Norwood Scale. Right now I am a Norwood 3. Unfortunately (stupidly) I have started treatment very late, when I was 30, because I was scared of finasteride and Minoxidil side effects and because the cure was always just around the corner *lol* Big 3 definitely stopped further progression and stabilized my hair condition, made it thicker and more robust, but regaining three lost Norwoods is very difficult, probably only possible via hair transplant or some other form of future treatments (stem cell, cloning etc.)

    Fact is: Girls in their teens and tweens don't like bald / balding men. They want someone who is athletic, tall and has a full head of (dark) hair. Where I live (Hamburg), the average height for young men is 6 feet 1 inches, whereas I am 5 feet 9 inches. To round it up, I am scrawny. Three disadvantages rolled into one man, that's pretty bad ^^

    * Yes, male pattern baldness is a disease, especially at a young age, it takes a toll on the soul and is a constant psychological burden...

    What angers me the most are those 60yo people with NW0 manes who tell you that you have to embrace baldness and that it's all about character and charisma. Also my female cousins piss me off, who always tell me that bald is sexy, but they all have fullheads as boyfriends / partners. If bald is sexy, then why don't they go for bald guys? Family, relatives and "friends" are hypocritical: They tell you all the positive stuff about balding and baldness, but talk "badly" about me behind my back. Many people can be very polite to you but be rude about you behind your back.

    Being NW3 at 32 isnt bad. Keep doing what you are doing and you will be fine. If you are scrawny just hit the gym and get bigger and eat better. That would help you a lot for your mental health. Good luck
