I'm not over 45 but did start being attracted to bald guys or men with shaved heads as I got older. I always liked the buzz cuts though.

When I went on my first date with my now SO he had short hair but was going bald. His main pic he was wearing a bandana so I didn't know. Not long after we met he told me he shaved his head. I thought he looked younger and soon after he got rid of the mustache too. I would of dated him either way but I prefer the shaved look. He told me he had wanted to shave his head in the past but when he mentioned it to his then wife she went ballistic.


I've also been attracted to and dated men who kept the balding look without shaving their heads. No comb overs just really short buzz cut hair. If a woman really likes you it shouldn't matter.

Hair graft surgery is VERY expensive and not covered by insurance. Average is $12 a graft (per hair follical). For men who are really bald this can run into lots of money (over $10,000).

Still better deal than a set of implants.

I am 48, a good friend 44, we both are attracted to the bald look... just so long as they don't try to compensate by having this very strange tuft of scruff directly under the bottom lip. Never really understood that....

I shaved my head a long time ago and really like it. "Less hair to comb, more face to wash" :-) Plus I don't have to worry about my hair getting tangled up when riding the harley. lol

Being bald does suck! I know it can be tough to get womens attention or to reply back. I guess I use that as motivation to be a better guy then the next. I do know when they give me a chance they seem to like me. Its just tough getting that first chance.

Im not 45 yet..But I did start to lose my hair at 21..I tried to grow it back a few times..My friends said i looked better shaved..So shave it was..back in 1975-80(I had a killer afro)a lot of work went into maintaining that...I don't go to the baber anymore..I just buy a few good razors..Although going to the barber was always fun...You could have a great time meeting other people while waiting for your haircut..
I hated to lose my hair..But..Such is life...It's who I am now....And I like it.. ;)

Some bald men I don't mind

Some look OK bald, but some just look like a plucked chicken
it's about the head shape, some have pointy heads it just doesn't look right

I like hair

But it all depends on the guy

I see a lot women saying that they much prefer completely bald to a mix, and comb overs are the worst. The problem is some people just won't ever look good bald, I include myself in that, but I see my self gradually drifting one hair at a time toward the dreaded comb over- I hate the way they look too, I'm coming to the moment of truth where I'm going to have to buzz it- ugh- loosing your hair is awful.

bald is different from shaved. Doesn't change whether the man is date-able. Just a distinction.

I've dated several bald men, and have no problem with it. But there are times when they look better completely shaved. That is a huge turn on, for me at least.

Not everyone can afford those procedures. Besides, I thought we were supposed to accept people the way they are...not try to change them.

Yep. Bald is really no issue. Liars, however..........


Couldn't agree more. And those that can only talk or email when they have been drinking...because then they don't remember what they say...which gets them out of lying...

A great heart, good looking, sober bald man...my pick any day

I've dated a couple of men that were bald, or balding so they shaved it off regularly. It was a non-issue for me. But, it was more about who they were and how I felt around them, than it was about the hair. To me, if a man is bald, he is probably extremely confident in who he is, which is attractive in itself. But, had they had the comb-over, or bad hair piece I would not have even looked more than once.

I went out with a bald guy
he had a HUGE issue with him being bald
He asked me what I thought about men "who had no hair in their heads" that's how he asked me .
I said he looked good and I had no problem with bald men

He got offended and said he wasn't bald, he SHAVED his head!!!
I said, OK, whatever, it looks good.

You could tell even when he was shaving his head, he was too bald, the receding hair line shadow was almost all the way to the back.

He told me it amazed him how people don't know the difference between bald and shaved

I said ,in any case there is no hair in your head, so does it really matter, why or how it got that way? I already told you TWICE it looks GOOD on you.

he just lost it!

He went on and on saying how unfair that was of ME to say that
How women could have plastic surgeries and fake boobs and walk around with pouty fake lips looking like freaks and nobody says anything bad about them(really??:-) he even pointed at one woman who had breast implants next to us
but bald men got discriminated against on a daily basis.
This is one more case of a double standard and how unfair is to be a man in America, he said.

I let him talk and finished my coffee (thank GOD for coffee meetings) and I excused myself.

I wanted to do like Elaine from Seinfeld did to George Constanza before I left
Come really close to his face, and say YOU ARE BALD!!!!

But I didn't I just left

Fortunately this issue and the being short
it really depends on the guy
If he doesn't have a probelm with it, I don't either.

But in this case, this guy was such an a$$ ho le even his hair had ran away from him

Ive tried looking in the mirror MANY times & can not even begin to accept how i would look without my hair. Yet....many woman would probably prefer the bald look, & realistically maybe it would improve my odds of landing the one i want........But do i wanna look in the mirror & see someone who looks like an egg-head? not really. Ive had a High hairline & then a receeding hairline since i was in my late teens early 20s. Its part of life. When i look in the mirror & cant stand my hair,i will reach for the shaver

Being over 45, a lot more men are bald/balding. Does that change women's views on dating a bald guy? Maybe you would now, even though you wouldn't before?

Just wondering if the ladies' perspective has changed, or if it is a non-factor. Non-factor as long as it isn't a comb over!!! lol


Considering that a clean shaven bald head is the STYLE, I'm having a hard time understanding how women could still have a problem with it. I'm 45 and have a full head of hair, yet I choose to keep it low cut. I understand that some women are just into long hair, but having something AGAINST it in this day and age would seem ridiculous, as MANY men now choose that s their hairstyle. Male pattern baldness caught a HUGE break within the past decade!

being or going bald is not an issue when i meet a man.
i'm more interested in his personality and general "niceness"...and sex appeal!

i do think if a guy has thinning, wispy hair he would look a hell of a lot better with it either cut really short...a buzz cut...or a shaved head.

why don't you try it?...(you know who you are)...

not for me bald or silver hair or long hair do not care. I do not go for that i like men that are up front and caring. And honest. I would rather have a fat bald guy who is honest then a man with lots of hair and fit that lies./

Me too! I have threatened to MANY times...wouldn't have to worry about any more "bad hair days" The money I would save on shampoo, conditioner, trims...the time I would save on drying, detangling, styling...

I find myself attracted to bald/shaved men. Don't know why that is, but it is. I'm more into what's on the inside anyway. I realize men who are bald/balding would much rather have a head full of hair, but to me it doesn't matter. Besides- I don't want to date a man who uses more hair product than I do. javascript:smilie('')

Women, liberate yourselves! Shave your head today! Join us men in unity!

I agree that having no hair is extremely liberating. When I lost mine, I never felt so free and unencumbered. No more bad hair days or spending time on styling. I enjoyed my "baldness" because for me, it meant no pretense. A quick scrub of the scalp with baby shampoo and I was good to go.
