What's up all. I'm 24 and bald, probably average looking so obviously it's not an ideal situation, especially at my age. It's so socially acceptable to be called out for it, fuck, even guys will give you shit about it to see how solid your frame is. I usually just say bald is better than balding and leave it at that. I think I let it get to me a little bit more than I should but I'm working on it.

Anybody been in a similar situation? What do you usually say?

"You're right, it's only half of what my ass looks like."

“My head overheats because of my hair.”

“You gave me cancer.”

In what situation would you plan on using the third one haha?

[–]Endorsed ContributorUEMcGill214 points215 points  (19 children) | Copy

Drop it deadpan, "Yeah, it never grew back from the chemo", then look them straight in the eye with a few seconds of silence.

"Ha just fucking with you."

The key is to make someone feel awkward for their own comment. Remember, when people say this shit they are trying to get you to judge yourself, instead put it right back on themselves and make them judge their own actions.

I wouldn't say I'm very good at deadpan so that would definitely be a trial by fire haha. So true, it's more about them and the way they see themselves than it is trying to put me down, need to be more mindful of that, thanks man.

I second this, a good way to break someone’s frame is to question their attempt to shit test you. They throw a joke about you, make it serious and ask them explain. It usually ends in them realizing how bad of taste their joke is or create that awkward tension as this dude said, then you hit them with the “I’m just fucking with you, lighten up”

And of course if they persist, “Ah I see okay, we’ll have a good one. Talk to ya later” then leave the situation/conversation. That’s a classic claim of power in any exchange. Just as relationships, the one that is able to walk away has the most power

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Interesting. So regarding women, passing shit tests is equivalent to shifting the frame towards you? Or can you be passing shit tests but still operating in their frame.

[–]din_far5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Or can you be passing shit tests but still operating in their frame.

'Operating in their frame' is the #1 thing TRP tells you to NOT do. When you stay in your frame, shit tests don't matter.

And always remember, if a woman decides to throw a shit test your way, that is a sign that she is interested in you, but need confirmation that you're not a simp.

[–]Jacked5parrow0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You aren’t operating in their frame, you’re deflecting the pressure and making them question their own character which is very uncomfortable for people. You claim frame being making them and their own thoughts or opinions irrelevant to anything of value

[–]Terdmuffin2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I have a friend who is gay (though it isn't super obvious) and pretty knowledgeable about politics and whenever someone makes an ignorant and/or insulting off hand comment he will put them in the hot seat by saying "what do you mean?" Or "wait, can you explain that?". It's such a power move. I love watching it happen because a lot of people don't get what he's doing at first and will just publicly dig their own grave before they realize what he's even doing.

[–]Endorsed ContributorUEMcGill2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

A lot of people aren't prepared to defend their position much less explain it.get them moving backwards and usually easy from there.

Bald nurse here. I’ve come to realize people love to be inherently careless to those involved with charitable services, but I never take it personal because they’re just damn stupid, finding my choice to shave as taboo. I treat them like children in a matter-of-fact response each time.

Them: “Can I rub your head?” Me: “It’s a no, unless you’re ready to rub the other one, too.”

T: “Why’s your head so shiny? Do you shave your head EVERY DAY?” M: “How come you’re in my ER bed right now missing the point?” OR “That’s a great opener for the guy with the needle in hand.”

The only power shit tests, insults, etc. will ever have is the power YOU bestow to it. The way you carry yourself will bring more respect than any of the above comebacks ever will. I win usually because I don’t care. Because my hair is meaningless, and I look best this way, especially while getting laid out daily by the love of my life. :)

[–]Merica91111 points12 points  (3 children) | Copy

Don't pay to much mind into it. It's usually insecure people boosting their ego. I usually just make fun of their ugly girlfriend compared to my hot one.

I'm bald BTW

I went bald incredibly early, at around 15/16, and finally took the plunge and shaved it at 17. In the years since I did, I haven't really got shit for it by either women or men. I also found that women tend to like a guy with a shaved head, especially if you grow a beard to balance it out.

Take roids and grow a beard. Nobody will fuck with you.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 26 points27 points  (26 children) | Copy

My beard games weak as fuck unfortunately. I feel like Roids have too many side effects?

[–]drsherbert26 points27 points  (0 children) | Copy

Don’t take roids. You’ll destroy your endocrine system. If you do take roids do short cycles and do PCT

[–]1throwaway-aa212 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ignore them. DO NOT TAKE ROIDS. Get on a good barbell strength program that has you reaching 225 bench, 315 squat, and 405 deadlift, ideally in 12-18 months. Just gain muscle and lift, as is repeatedly said over and over.

[–]RobbyHagan27 points28 points  (12 children) | Copy

can you at least grow a good stubble? Also, if not roids, just eat a lot and lift heavy and get as big as you can naturally. People will change how they act around you

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 10 points11 points  (11 children) | Copy

It's a bit of a neck-beard, but I haven't ever tried to style it properly really. Yeah I can't wait to get back in the gym after Covid is over, I changed my routine to focus on high intensity workouts but have now realised that I basically have no other option than to get big.

[–]RobbyHagan26 points27 points  (1 child) | Copy

After Covid, hit the barber, have them help you find the right beard style for your face and hit the gym and get swole bro. Nobody will care about your bald head when you got traps like Tom Hardy as Bane.

Minoxidil for the beard. Look it up

[–]izaacibanez975 points6 points  (5 children) | Copy

sounds like you’re in the same position as me. i’m a 23 year old who’s balding and it’s not terrible yet, but i keep it pretty short and have a hard time growing a beard. look into minoxidil. i’ve been using it for a couple weeks and i’ve seen some gains so far. the side effects, if you experience any, are unlikely to be that bad. i’ve only had a little dry skin so far. just check it out

[–]SalporinRP2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I'm not trying to shit on minoxidil because I know it works but it some people it degrades the collagen in your skin and thus ages you

[–]izaacibanez971 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

that’s true, it’s good to use a dermaroller though at least once a week and i believe it’s to help with collagen production

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Is this for beard gains? I did see something about that the other day but only glazed over it, I'll check it out thanks!

[–]skippwiggins0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Steroids are well worth the side effects. Testosterone and masteron will fill that beard in. I’ve always had a shitty beard and bald body and after a few cycles I’ve got nice hair on my chest and can grow a full beard. The only side effects I’ve ever had were aggression/agitation and extreme horniness, confidence, increased concentration and drive in life, passion, etc. most side effects imo come when you PCT off wrong, in which case I’ve gotten mild acne and felt foggy for a few weeks, so do that right or just do what I do and blast and cruise.. so I do a blast 500mg test 300mg tren/300mg mast and then I cruise on 125mg test / 125mg masteron. Just kidding don’t cruise it’s really dumb just do cycles and pct off and don’t use tren or deca on a first cycle, or probably tren ever if you’re smart

[–]Powerful_Negotiation0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Those are all highly neurotoxic. Yes, even Test when supraphysiological. Especially Tren and Deca. Yes, I’ve used them all. Done with everything. It took about many months but my brain is back to functioning. There’s a part of my life missing from my memory. Not worth it.

[–]muricanwerewolf1-2 points-1 points  (3 children) | Copy

Steroids have millions of users. The side effects are real, but most are just annoying but reversable/preventable. The true horror stories are real too, and I'm sure there are people who have done one cycle and permanently done harm to themselves, but most the people who have hurt themselves were long time users who started very young using insane compounds or did something extremely stupid.

[–]skippwiggins0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Exactly. And 99% of the horror stories come from extreme 1g tren cycles. If tren didn’t exist then almost all of the steroid horror stories wouldn’t exist. I for one love tren but I keep doses low and never abuse it.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] -2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

Tbh I've always looked at steroids with the 'cheating' stigma, maybe it's time to reconsider

[–]muricanwerewolf19 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy

Depends what you want. There are a lot of guys who take great pride in the work they’ve put in, and I have no problem giving them props for what they’ve done. But, the reality is none of us are on a level playing field. I have a friend who while tall and lean can just touch a barbell and blows up more than I could in 4 years of lifting. Truth is, what you look like even compared to what you looked like in the past is not a reliable indicator of effort expended. I have another friend, try as he might, even as hard as he worked, he could put no muscle on at all, and his body just put fat on. Went to the doc, turns out he was producing like no testosterone at all. Was he not working hard?

Ultimately, most casual/not competing lifters who use steroids just want to be stronger, fuck with the lights on and feel confident. Who are they cheating? Now maybe you just want to feel great pride in your own genetics and work, and hey, go wild. But that’s personal to you, to feel a certain kind of way for people who don’t really care about that is silly if you’re natural and kind of put out by other people’s success with the drugs, because again, none of us are on a level playing field in this game.

[–]1DonaldBaelish7 points8 points  (9 children) | Copy

This is shit advice. The part about the roids, I mean.

[–]RobbyHagan2 points3 points  (8 children) | Copy

No it isn't. Though I also said if he doesn't want to use roids he can just eat a lot and lift heavy to get as big as he can without them.

[–]1DonaldBaelish4 points5 points  (7 children) | Copy

Are you taking steroids?

[–]RobbyHagan3 points4 points  (6 children) | Copy

I can not confirm nor deny the taking of illegal supplements, but let's just say, I know that steroids aren't bad if you know where you're getting them from and don't abuse them.

[–]1throwaway-aa22 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

There are elite level natural lifters who agree that steroids shorten your life span. We can AT LEAST agree that someone not only must be extremely knowledgeable about it, but they’ll also need to know where to find it, let alone that it’s illegal and it could be bad shit. Why risk your kidneys and penis function and longevity, ESPECIALLY considering that you’re giving this advice to a normie?

[–]RobbyHagan0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

There are elite level natural lifters who agree that steroids shorten your life span.

Of course they're going to hate on steroids. They're natty. It's like the vegan vs meat eaters debate. Each side has "evidence" that the other side is bullshit and bad for you. I'm not saying roids can't do harm, but there's no evidence stating that roids WILL cause kidney and penis problems or shorter life span. CAN and WILL are different things. Fucking Alcohol and even Tylenol CAN be harmful to your organs and lifespan. The OP should be aware of issues and do his due dilligence before putting anything into his body, but that's ultimately up to him. I'm suggesting AN option, not the ONLY option. Remember, again, I did say that he can also just go the natty route and eat big and lift big. Everyone challenging me seems to be leaving that out.

[–]1throwaway-aa22 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Again, I just think it’s irresponsible given the knowledge they have. Comparing it to alcohol and Tylenol isn’t remotely the apt analogy. I don’t even think you should even be offering it to people as a suggestion, especially the idiots that ask questions like this (which should cue you in on how much the person would study steroids before putting them in their body).

The whole vegan / meat eater thing is a cute argument until you realize that there’s a bunch of people that have used steroids and also suggest against it. Do you know of anyone who held a natty stance, then switched over, and then explain why it’s better? Anyone preferably on YouTube? Because I’ve never heard of that.

I personally don’t believe they’re healthy... but we can all agree that someone needs deep knowledge on them to be used. When you tell recovering betas to use steroids, you’re being irresponsible and setting them up for failure. Let people get a year or two training underneath their belts, and let them find that shit on their own.

[–]RobbyHagan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Did you lose someone to steroids or something? You're hell bent on getting your two cents in.

My alcohol example was on point. You saying it isn't doesn't make you right. Also, people using steroids and then advising against it doesn't mean they're bad. There's also people who use steroids and think they're awesome. greg doucette is an example of a guy who competed natty and then switched over to steroids and talks openly about them.

You said it yourself "I personally dont believe they're healthy." Then obviously you are only going to advise against them. You have a clear bias. I didn't sink my heels in on the subject with the OP. I'm only doing that because of the way you're arguing with me about it. Again, I keep saying it and it still goes unacknowledged. My original post ALSO said that if he doesn't prefer roids then to get big natty. I don't have a strong investment in the OPs decision. Check your bias.

Mofo looks silly af. Instead of owning his shit, this is what he does. It’s sad to be honest.This is proof to all the people that think money is the answer to all. Success, nice body and a bad bitch on your side can certainly boost your confidence, but will never fix your insecurities. This is why you hear many EC’s on here preaching to everybody to REALLY internalize the RP, because that’s the only cure.

[–]bert_cj2 points3 points  (6 children) | Copy

Man. That shit makes me sad. Seems like there’s just no solution to balding. All these bald dudes doing everything in their power to hide their baldness. Always wearing hats, then fake hair. Lebron James, one of the biggest athletes in the world, but he’s so insecure about his baldness. Sad, because it just tells me that there’s no hope for average guys. Seems like these big name guys try to embrace baldness but ultimately they don’t like it and would rather have hair /:

[–]colinnb9 points10 points  (5 children) | Copy

Shut up with the victim mindset. There are plenty of desirable alphas that own up their baldness. Look no farther than Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Terry Crews.

[–]bert_cj0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

Don’t see how that’s having a victim mindset. Lebron James is one of the biggest athletes in the world and he’s unhappy with his balding, that tells me there’s no hope for the average guys.

I’m not balding by the way, yet. Hopefully i won’t anyone soon. Was feeling bad for guys that are balding.

I agree though. The guys you listed definitely rock the baldness. I stand corrected.

[–]colinnb2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

It’s a victim mindset because this is just a loser excuse not to be confident in who you are. And don’t compare yourself to LeBron James because he probably has a legit reason to do that or maybe he has an underlying insecurity. Regardless, being bald is no excuse to not be a confident alpha that’s successful with women, as there is plenty of proof proving the contrary.

[–]bert_cj0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Lebron James has a legit reason/underlying excuse to be insecure? Like what?

[–]colinnb3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

I mean an underlying insecurity. LeBron is only human and maybe his balding is making him lose confidence.

[–]bert_cj-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

That was my point. It'll be harder for the average joe not to have that same insecurity compared to someone who can bang literally any girl on the planet, exaggerating, kind of.

But yes, you are correct. There are many guys who rock the baldness and don't try to hide it, they embrace it and look amazing.

Look up MinoxBeard on reddit and the Minoxidil Beard Spot on Facebook. All the information for using minoxidil (rogaine/regain) to grow a beard. I’m going bald and had 0 facial hair but minoxidil made me grow basically a full beard. I kinda love being basically bald now.

If people sense that you love being bald regardless of their negative or positive comments, they will surprisingly start to dig the baldness. Own who you are.

If you're totally bald you have no choice but to own it right, get jacked if you can, grow a beard, there was this politican that was bald and grew a huge beard and he was known for his beard, when asked why he grew that beard he said "before growing it I was called baldie, after I grew it I was called that bearded guy".

Good for you man, first time I shaved it I was anxious as fuck.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, I definitely was. But it actually doesn’t look bad at all. I did a few cycles of test and other things and my hair started receding pretty bad so I just said fuck it. DHT blockers didn’t do shit for me.

[–]BiologicalFunfare1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Are you completely bald? If so, How long did it take? Curious if you tried anything to try and stop it?

I started balding at 18 and didn't start fin until 23 by that time i still had about 80% coverage. It's been 3 years and I've kept what I had. Pretty sure i'd be bald by now if I did nothing.

If there's still some hair growing there's still some hope.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I'm probably somewhere between NW 2 - 3.5. I'd buzzed it down within a month or two of me noticing that it was going to be my fate. did you get any side effects from the fin?

[–]BiologicalFunfare0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

My penis still works if that's what your'e asking. Bro I'd honestly recommend it at your stage even if you keep shaving your head. keep the hair that's left alive just in case a better treatment comes along in the future because once its gone it's gone forever

[–]DouglasPR1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

In my country bald guys dont have problems getting girls. Some have issues with their own self esteem. There is even a legend and popular songs praising that women prefer bald guys. Maybe from elevated testosterone levels

[–]agoodcrayon4 points5 points  (6 children) | Copy

By 26 you’ll have gotten thru so many shit tests that you’ll be used it and won’t be insecure about it. A bald man never ages.

There’s also a niche for the girls that go for bald dudes. Watch what they do not what they say.

You can’t excel with your hair, now you have the opportunity to explore excelling other areas in your life. Lift and get huge/toned. The more testosterone you have the more your beard will fill in. You might not have it at 24 but at 28 it’ll be a different story.

Have a goal in your mind every day and build brick by brick until 5 years go by and you’re proud of what you’ve accomplished.

Godspeed brother.

When you say watch what they do and not what they say, what do you mean? Agree completely on the goals/mission and I'm working on it, however, should I just focus on that? Build it and they will come, or play the numbers game and actively try to find these hot bald-loving women?

[–]agoodcrayon1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

People in general say one thing and do another. Women tend to do this 80% of the time. So they may say they like guys with long hair but somehow end up getting their pipes unclogged by Mr. Clean.

So, watch what they do not what they say. Be aware of the hints and be active in seeking out those girls that see you as “daddy”.

Also be attractive, don’t be unattractive. In your case, you NEED to become the 1% man. Get that engrained in your head. You can thank social stigmas for that.

The more meaningful “fulfilling” girls will come during your building phase. Playing the numbers game is more about quantity versus quality.

Up to you on that one but I prefer higher tier women. It reflects the type of man you are. Rather have a dime than 10 pennies.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Ah okay, I underatand. Women saying they don't date bald guys is a shit test in itself for some then. 1% man it is.

I’m thinning and it’s the most miserable thing when it happens so young. We have to choose between trying to cover it up and hope they don’t notice or shave it and face the shit we get for it. There is absolutely no history of balding in my family and I had great hair when I was younger.

  1. It gets really tiring to answer this same damn question over and over. Do you honestly think you’re the first person with this question? Are you this helpless that searching the other 100 answers to this question didn’t help you? Or did you search at all...
  2. Nobody calls out Jason Statham, or the Rock, or plenty of other attractive men who are bald and have tons of frame. So you obviously either don’t have a lot of muscle, don’t have your fashion on point, you give off a pussy vibe, or you care too much about what people think of you.
  3. No one gives a fuck about your sob story, the fact that you look average, etc. what you guys have to realize, is that you have a choice. You can choose to complain about the hand you were dealt, or you can fight. There are people born with no legs. There are men uglier than you, that are HUNGRIER than you.

Its the same damn advice as always. Lift and lift more. 225 bench, 315 squat, 405 deadlift. That’s what you shoot for as a novice. Study game, amass power and money. Stop asking dumb questions and put in the work.

I appreciate the honesty.

[–]BruhMoment458863 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Make a joke about it. Show you dont care. Guys will admire the confidence and how carefree you are.

"Your joke gave me cancer"

[–]bighoopsbecky3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

I think bald men are sexy I think a lot of girls do. My boyfriend is bald and I love to massage his head. We even joke about it sometimes I’ll say he scratched me with “the sides”. I think being comfortable and owning it is like 70%.

[–]PillUpAss0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I’d go with “it got ripped out from eating too much pussy.” Laugh with them. Agree with them “I am fucking bald.” Then continue having a great time. Read WISNIFG for a thorough analysis.

We are all just talking monkeys, don’t take anything said by an external source too seriously.

Quality line

[–]Ifoundthedevilfirst0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Was just about to post something similar. Bald (and better for it). Have a thin side burn to beard and thick goatie. Without facial hair you look like you have cancer. I want to thicken the face/cheek hair which will no doubt will improve the look. From researching thid estosterone is key and although i lift everyday including the big ones (squats, presses etc) it aint happening. I am using a dermatology rollet 0.5 per week plus menoxodil and it is working but slow progress. I want the viking beard quick. Would testosterone trestment work?

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I have no idea sorry. I want the cheeks to fill out too though so I'm gonna look into this Minoxidil business.

[–]bert_cj0 points1 point  (6 children) | Copy

Who gives you shit for being bald? Like what situation does that happen? Are these people your friends?

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 1 point2 points  (5 children) | Copy

The friends I've had since I was like 4 years old gave me some banter about it when I first shaved, I told them straight up to stop doing it and they did. Apart from that it's usually from those sort of cocky dickheads that think they're better than everyone else, people I knew from school who I bump into on nights out, wankers basically.

[–]LegendarySuperSalsa1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

They aren’t your friends if they seriously mock you about it. Theres a difference between busting your balls in a joking way that us guys do and being downright mean about it. People give me jokingly shit about it and I’ve gotten so used to it it doesn’t even phase me. It still internally bothers me but I don’t let it visibly show.

[–]bert_cj0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

Examples?

Just curious. That seems hella disrespectful for people to just bring up unless theyre like your friends or something.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

'oh wow you're bald, my dads bald too' is the most recent I got from some dude a few years younger than me.

[–]bert_cj1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

What’s the context lol? Like wtf why would someone say that?

Alright. Let me ask this. How tall are you and what’s your body build like?

I really doubt a swole scary looking mf is getting shit like that

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm 5'10 and my body is built for sport rather than size, i play ice hockey and have a black belt in taekwondo, about to complete my first half ironman if it doesn't get cancelled due to coronavirus. So yeah I'm nowhere near swole, but I plan to switch up my training.

I think he's just a douchebag really, obviously his opinion shouldn't/doesn't matter.

[–]I_PrisonBREAK0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

25 years old here and bald since 22.. I can say that after all these years I walk around without even noticing that I am bald. Nobody actually cares if you are bald. My answer to shit tests is .."I shave because its sexy"

[–]Raizzen0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I usually just told them yeah that’s because the rest of them grows in different places of my body. While giving them the look. Induces some chuckles.

[–]JoePants0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You know why guys go bald? Testosterone.

If those other guys want to use their testosterone for growing hair, that's their call.

[–]PRW630 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

There is no test here.

It is just teasing, nothing more. No one is "testing" you.

Frame means "controlled context and confidence". In other words,...Who is in control of the context and how confident are they about it. This has nothing to do with guys teasing a bald guy. They are not teasing you for any top secret purpose other than they enjoy doing it,...it is fun for them. It reminds them they have something you don't,...hair,...and it makes them feel good.

The term "solid frame" has become just another "buzz word".

[–]Judirek0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Sounds like insecurity from them, I know this cause I used to be one before trp. Women just do that to make themselves look funny, bitches only need not to be a land whale to get selected so they don't know shit about what men have to do and go through. Don't let it get to you, brush it off and try to avoid toxic people in your life.

[–]3chazthundergut0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I started balding in high school.

Shave it down to zero.

My go-to response if someone teases me about it is that my testosterone is too high

[–]garydelrey0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

You don’t need any kind of response to be at the tip of your tongue. If you have a strong personality and people respect you, they won’t mess with you and your bald head in any meaningful way. If you work hard, if you’re good at what you do, people see no point in shit testing you after a while. Someone made some stupid joke about the bald head? Be rude for once. You don’t have to laugh it off. Leave that person without any sort of response. Who gives a shit. Shaving your head at your early adulthood could be a strong signal of ownership. How many guys out there taking finasteride and rogaine and this and that to hold on to little or no hair? You made the bold decision, live up to it. Own the look. You’re actually original as fuck. It doesn’t matter what you have to say when a bald joke comes up. Just keep building value for yourself. By the way, I can’t emphasize enough how important it is for people with shaved heads to grow. some. fucking. muscles. Keep the hard work on, man.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

So true. When I first noticed it I purchased some random caffeine shampoo or some shit that apparently 'stops' you going bald, used it about three times before looking myself in the mirror and asking myself wtf I was doing. When I see Jeff bezos and his billions back with a glorious mane I'll consider treatment but until then I'll play the hand I've been dealt, for better or worse. Just need to externalise this inner confidence. Thanks man!

[–]tolstushki7010 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Some men look great bald. I started losing my hair at 18. By 25 I was completely bald. I have been shaving my head ever since. Own it up, it’s out of your control, so there is nothing you can do to grow it back. People will give you shit just because they don’t have anything else to pick on. When people call me out on it, I give them a simple reply; I either laugh hard or I say I know you’d still tap that.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

How did it affect your game?

[–]tolstushki7011 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It has made it a little difficult approaching women but it also made me become a better version of myself and made me improve other aspects of life, like finances, working out and being very social. Don’t focus on that too much, at the end of the day, it won’t matter if you have other things going for you. Once you stop caring, people will feel the vibe that you don’t care.

[–]ArnoldT10000 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

“They call me cue ball”

Just make fun of yourself in a way that isn’t self deprecating. Be fine with your bald ass head.

[–]deville050 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

If alex caruso can be a cool about it, so can you.

[–]deeznutsbeswingin-2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

I shaved my head to the bone with an electric razor this summer just to see what it’d be like since I’ll need to do it in about a year or two... and the first time I was out at starbucks I had ioi’s from 2 girls, and I didn’t really get many back then cause i was still chubby. One was in line in front of me and she was just obviously trying to get my attention by drawing attention to her ass, and the other one, cute little 20yo blonde.. god this was cute: on my way out she made sure to be leaving just before me, and when she opened the door she spun around, and looked me in the eyes with a big smile and a sexy hair flip and then spun back around with a ‘come get me if you dare’ attitude. Got the bang.

Be the badass bald guy. I was wearing boots jeans leather jacket and aviators and my calm, unaffected body language said i could beat the shit out of anybody. Bald is fine if you have muscles and style, and believe that you look BETTER bald. Confidence, man. Stop giving a fuck.

Edit: lol downvoters are jelly

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The reply I needed. Thanks man.

[–]rockyp32-3 points-2 points  (4 children) | Copy

Get on no fap/ semen retention beard will grow like crazy

[–]kabuto_mushi8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

This is bro science. Do no fap but dont expect it to magically make your facial hair grow lol

[–]rockyp32-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

It is half bro science but everyone that does it claims the same shit. Your androgen receptor sensitivity increases u get more body hair and facial hair

[–]Ifoundthedevilfirst-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

Is this true?

[–]rockyp321 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yes man no fps and SR won’t fix all your problems but life is so much better without fapping. You just become more masculine it’s taken me a long time to learn and understand but our sexual energy that builds up over time is a big part of what makes us a man. If your letting it out all the time Your missing out a good chunk of energy.

Most likely explanation s when our ancestors didn’t reproduce of course our body is aware of it. What does it do if we’re not ejaculating or having sex??? It’s gonna think OH FUCK we need to reproduce we need to put our sexual characteristics on overdrive to find a mate.

[–]Sin-Silver-2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

read ‘The Game’ by Neil Strauss. Not only is it one of the pinnacle TRP books, but he explains how he turned his balding hair from source of insecurity, to one of his strengths.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Awesome, I've almost finished the rational male so I'll read this next. Appreciate it.

[–]user12345678654-3 points-2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Work with what you have.

I'm in the same game.

One thing I have learned is being bald puts you at a disadvantage. You can still get laid but not as easily. You can still spin plates but not as many.

[–]Middlekoorb[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Yeah I'm slowly coming to terms with that truth. But as you say, nothing you can do about it.

[–]user123456786542 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

But as you say, nothing you can do about it.

Whoa there. I never said that.

I said work with what you have.

There is nothing wrong with wearing a hat, a hair piece or even a beanie.

Be comfortable and confident being bald first.

Then you can be comfortable and confident wearing anything on your head.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
