I think it goes both ways. Some balding guys and fullheads are absolutely deluded about the implications of baldness. I have a NW1.25 friend and I often discuss with him about baldness. He thinks he's balding and yes, his hairline isn't 100% straight, but I've always told him that he's exaggerating. Anyway, I have always tried to be honest with him. I openly confessed that I'm insecure about my hair loss and that my dating life would be over if I ever was to go beyond NW2 (which I am now) considering that I'm only 20 years old. He then reacted irritatated telling me that women are not so superficial and overlook such 'details'. I then asked him if his brother (thick NW0) would have his girlfriend if he was balding. He instantly said 'no doubt'. That's the moment I realized how this guy has no idea what he's talking about because his brother got to know his girlfriend thanks to the fact that she found him attractive enough on Instagram. So, what he's suggesting is that pics of a balding version of him would be as attractive to her as the original NW0 version. He then went on accusing me of lurking too much social media and having too much complexes and judging by his tone I would say he sounded very irritated. This is the level of delusion some people reach. He then admitted that balding is actually a problem but only if it's really noticeable on the outside and if you are young but according to him the solution would be finding the right girlfriend or your soul mate while you still have hair and then stay with her so long that at some point she wouldn 't care anymore if you were balding. Then I replied that then she would be motivated to cheat on you. He literally reacted like this : " suuuuuuuure, yes that's absolutely going to happen". Lol, as if I was talking about a fantasy or some drama show. Not to mention the fact that he thinks that eating clean and doing sport halts hair loss. This is why we don't have a cure yet, because of people like him. I only hope one day they will realize how wrong they were.
