It's him, I know his pics with and without unblurred face.
yeah he doesnt look bald at all then
That’s me, thx for not believing. But yeah that was before balding. I’m a diffuse thinner, not a receder, so up front I look good. Just sh*t density, ESPECIALLY for 22. Couldn’t find ur pics, but I hope your transplant was successful, I saw your first post was in 2013. How’s your hair compared to then?
Thanks bro! And yeah if you check out my posts from when I first got on here I was in the worst possible spot mentally. I was actually very close to suicide. Lexapro has helped me tho, if you’re still in that bad spot maybe try an antidepressant? It’s all about shifting your perspective man. This dude is way balder than either of us and he was wearing his heavily diffused nw4 with no shame and was the life of the party. People tend to gravitate towards people with that kind of energy, regardless of how you look apparently. You got this bro, I saw your hair and it’s not even bad, if you start to see scalp throw toppik in, I do it every day. You’ll prob maintain on finasteride so f*****g live it up man.
My hair is better than pre transplant but shedding again fast. I see my hair under light and though the transplant was done all the hair around it (old hair) finally fell and all you see is scalp under light. In the shade/night its passable. My crown, and frontal touch ups SERIOUSLY needs work. Pre transplant my hair was AWFUL. I had that horrible island of hair in the front of my head and the crown was thinning fast. I had my temples filled in and some crown work (with left over grafts) done the first time (well two times) but I knew, and was told I would need further work down the line and its coming fast but right now my funds are tied up in some of my rental properties, and work Im doing to my own house, plus I bought a new truck last year. I keep saying Im going to go back to my guy but the Doctor I used is no longer even in the US and his partner gave me a meh vibe but supposedly he is good. Im afraid if I do go Ill just splurge money I dont have to use and get it done. I shaved for 2 years before a hair transplant to see if that would work and it doesnt. I look horrible with a shaved head, and this isnt just my opinion its from everyone around me, so Im fucked. I also can not use finasteride due to sides, very physical painful sides. I used a topical but Ill be damned if it actually works.
I will say, when I had hair I had zero issues picking up women, the more hair I lost the harder it became. I saw first hand the difference it causes and its not fun. It doesnt matter your attitude, unless you are willing to REALLY start dropping your standards, your opportunities start dropping.
Im older now so I guess thats life, though as I point out frequently my younger brother of 2 years had perfect hair, beyond perfect so the getting older thing is bullshit in my eyes and I see the women who still flock to him and honestly hes one of the most depressed miserable little shits I know so confidence and attitude mean dick in the end if you arent good looking enough to get the girl to talk to you in the first place.
Ive been giving these guys tips and advice forever (even when I first joined and was at my most unstable self), this just isnt the place for it. The ones in here want to vent, thats it and its better to just let the venting happen. Most people have left this area, I only frequently pop in and out when Im bored at work because its still interesting to read some of the stuff
I don't want to be the negative incel of the thread and I appreciated your story but if I was 30 with a history of f*****g girls one after the other, I literally wouldn't give a f*** about balding. The problem is that some of us are 19- year- olds who have to eat finasteride to barely have a chance with one girl, let alone with many.
You say that now, but wait until you are my age. It's never the right time for balding except for maybe when you are 60 years old and impotent but I am not even sure about that.
What does that mean?
