    No, no it's not worth it. If a lady denies you because you suffer from hairloss, then she is the type to go out with tanned douches who treat her like dog s***, but she doesn't care because they have hair. A mature woman would NOT care whether you suffer from Androgenetic Alopecia because she will settle for your personality, that grey matter in your skull and your heart. Believe it or not.

    Alas, that only happens when you're not only handsome but masculine as well ( broad face, broad frame). Maybe 1 in 100 are spared
    Those who are good-looking but of the pretty kind, are doomed
    Those who are average are doomed as well
    Those who are short and/or frail ( certainly if combined with any of the above) are doomed too

    Balding is mutilation, few things can so thoroughly fk up your aesthetic, which in this day and age, especially if you're young, is all-important

    So true! I've always said there are literally 4 choices, depending on what suits you and what is possible:

    1) finasteride and transplants to keep it full or those with incredible donor and a lowish pattern can rely just on transplants. This is pretty rare though.
    2) Spread the grafts around if you've lost a lot and maintain a buzz cut. Some surgeons specialise in this and adding in SMP.
    3) Razor
    4) Piece

    Literally the only way to look aesthetic. Of course option 1 is preferred but option 2 is not a bad one for those struggling with serious hair loss and can pull off the cropped look. Like you said and I've written a lot, black guys just look naturally good shaved or anyone with a tan benefits too. Seeing a good surgeon (not just recommended but tailored for your situation) helps a lot.

    I support your point of view. I have relatives who have a serious disability and cannot move. Yes, now they have more options and they can use mobile scooters as on this page instead of ordinary wheelchairs. But I am glad that I am just starting alopecia. Yes, it will increase over time, but it is not the end of the world for me. I know that at this very moment there are many people who are much worse and this wears me off for nothing.

    I also use to think that it's "just" hair, and others have disabilities, cancer, other worse conditions and so on. But i still can't get over the fact that i think it is sucking SO much joy out of my youth/20's, so life quality is going down quite a bit. I have focused on other things the last 6 months, so i'm not as depressed as before (im also having sex on a regular basis with a nice girl right now, that f*****g helps a lot), but still... I would rather lose sight on one eye, if that meant i would keep a healthy set of norwood 1/2 for the rest of my life.

    Cold approach pickup. I meditate. I do scalp massages and I use Rosemary oil. I exercise. I take my b vitamins.

    I am not a neurotic Nancy so, my accutane related male pattern baldness is whatever.

    I love my hair but like youth and life, if or when the time comes, I will say goodbye.

    Then, I will go do more cold approach pickup and meditation. Thus far no girl has commented. If anything else its a compliment.

    Your neurotic narrator is speeding up hairloss.

    By not being a neurotic Nancy, You will lower stress hormone's and avoid speeding in the process.

    Do what you can. Slow it. Relax. Whenever the time comes, dwayne Johnson it.

    I am practicing Buddhism so, monk mode is inevitable.

    Good luck.

    Learn game. Meditate. Pull girls on monk mode no hair. There's too much time spent on whimpering about hair.

    Love yourself. Love the hair. Get on with life.

    So you are valuing one of your eyes at less than €5-10k euros (price of one/two top hair transplants). Mental!

    you really think 1 hair transplant (or several) gonna ever give you a thick full head of hair? if so you're sadly delusional.
    plus they always basically tell you that you have to take finasteride for life along with those hair transplants or else your hair will keep getting worse.

    1 eye in return for a thick full head of hair for life, not even gonna think twice.

    imagine still believing in "game", no "game" in the world will help you get girls if you're unattractive, and no attractive dude needs to have "game" to pull chicks.
    "game" was invented by average to ugly guys thinking confidence is what matters.

    don't be one of those guys whos harassing girls on the street after wasting your money going to a "seduction"/"game" course done by idiots.

    Whereas I do agree that the whole PUA world is quite toxic, there are a lot of men that could benefit for at least knowing some of the principles about what to say/do and what not to say/do to/with women.

    That's just basic social skills, better to gain that by hanging around with some socially adjusted guys and girls. You also learn that way what are your own strengths and weaknesses and that's okay. Everyone has them and it's the human element. Girls just want someone to have fun with, understands them who also looks pretty decent. On the other hand I knew some guy when we were 19 who went to this bootcamp during summer uni break. He came back ultra weird and everyone noticed. It's a waste of time overall. Maybe reading one book on it is suffice to pick up basic common sense. It was the craze when I was a teen and we mostly read it through curiosity. I thought people have moved on now.

    Sounds like a Shookwun post. Amusing.

    You need professional help. "Delusional" aptly describes yourself.

    I've already had one hair transplant and my head of hair looks thick, just waiting for my crown to grow in. I don't take finasteride. Think you need to do a bit more research before making bold statements.

    Good luck with finding your way in life.

    It all depends on your knowledge gap. I know guys with good basic social skills that are still completely oblivious to what they do wrong with women. Not trying to defend the PUA community but also not saying that all of it is useless/bogus.

    It is kind of like that whole alpha male stuff... The term itself is complete BS. The guy who invented it spent the last part of his career trying to teach people that it does not apply to humans, but at that point, certain groups had already internalized it as reality. Still, for a lot of men who are seeking an identity, it can offer them a framework of how to operate as a male in this day and age. It can help you to live your own life, not take sh*t from other people, not be a pleaser, go for the things you want etc. It becomes a problem when you lack the ability to do this with some nuance, and then you become like the guy you described. People who misinterpret and overidentify with the term alpha male use it as an excuse to become an a**h** and somehow they still think they are on the right path. High-value people (the people you actually want in your life) can see through this and will push you away.

    Spoken like a man who has never pulled before.

    You have a choice. Cry about bei g Charlie Brown or chat lots of girls. Pull and pull. More.

    Harrass girls? You sound like a male feminist. Jordan Peterson called them a weasel.

    No, he called MGTOW men weasels and afterwards he said he regretted it. Probably because he found out that he was insulting a lot of potential followers.

    That is Joe Rogan, not Jordan Peterson...

    Also, I am for equal rights and opportunities for men and women, but I still approach women when I want to. Am I now a weasel or not?

    I know this is a relatively old post but it reminds me so much of me before I started balding. If someone had told me that men in their late teens can go bald I would have never believed them or taken them seriously.
