I occasionally receive an email from Bald Attraction Fans with their story. I love, love, love receiving these email. I am very thankful for them. And I am very humbled by them. It really makes me feel that I am making a difference and helping and that means everything to me. Thank you attractive bald guys out here!
Thank you, all of you guys out there, who support the work I am doing here on Bald Attraction. Even you guys who don’t. That only validates, that this passion of mine, my life project – helping men, especially those very young ones to embrace their baldness fast and use it to their advantage. And help them to become very confident, bold attractive bald men right away.
Here is the email I received from Tim. Thank you Tim! You really opened my eyes even wider to understand the pain young balding guys go through. That matters not only to me, but a lot of young guys will benefit from it as well:
I posted on your site a few weeks back, and just signed up for the newsletter yesterday, and wanted to thank you again for putting together such a positive site!
I suppose you could say I am also an attractive bald man, albeit with a bit of a different angle!
As I posted on your page, I’m probably a year or two younger than you, and started losing my hair when I was 17 – I completely panicked. I was overweight as a kid, but worked hard to get very fit when I was about 14-15. Life was great! I got a lot of attention from girls, and was looking forward to the future.
When I noticed hair all over my pillow a few months after I turned 17, I freaked – over the next few years, I’d try the drugs – Rogaine and Propecia – all kinds of herbal creams, standing on my head – and NOTHING worked! When I graduated college at 23, it was pretty bad and I had been wearing a hat all the time for a few years – I still got girls, but really hated how I looked without the hat. I was very demoralized. I had really loved my hair, and now just a few years later I had a combover and was taking some jokes from friends! None of my close family was bald, and I only knew one friend who was losing his hair – at the time, it wasn’t nearly as bad as mine was.
Here’s where I could have really used your site! But, it was 2002, and there was no YouTube, and no real websites where you could talk to other guys who were going through it or recently gone through it. I saw the ads for Hair Club for Men all over TV, including one during the Super Bowl that year, and figured I would go in and see what it was all about.
I admit, the guys I met there looked great – the guy who really sold me was 36, and looked exactly what 23 year old me thought I should look like at 36. So I went for it, even though I didn’t really understand what I was in for. I was really shocked when I realized they were shaving down the top of my head and gluing a wig on me! I held it together until I got out, then drove to a Starbucks, where I threw up in the bathroom.
A few days later, I saw myself in the mirror, and standing there was the old “me” that I had liked so much – I did look great, and soon was getting attention from younger girls again even when not wearing a hat. But I didn’t feel quite right – like I was hiding who I really was! That continued over several years, and I didn’t tell anybody about what I’d done. Not until several years ago, when I had been dating a girl for a few years, did I tell someone about it.
And, as you say, SHE DIDN’T CARE. She didn’t care if I was bald, or if I had hair, though she did like my “hair.” But she did care that I had been embarrassed about being bald, and what I’d done about it! After we broke up and I started dating another girl, I told her and she didn’t care either! I’ve since told a lot of people, and NOBODY cares!
Exactly as you have said on your site, NOBODY cares if you are bald if you are confident and comfortable with who you are! This is extremely difficult for a young, balding man to come to grips with – I thought it would be impossible to be the person I wanted to be without my hair, and I was NEVER so wrong! I don’t think there is anything wrong with wearing a hair system, if you’re comfortable with what you’re doing and who you are, but I think it’s a LOT easier for most guys if they cut it short and work on rebuilding their confidence!
So I think what you’re doing is incredibly important – I don’t know what it is like for other guys to lose their hair, but when it happens as a teen, it’s really hard! You need good role models to show you that it’s not the end of the world, and that’s exactly what you’re doing! When I was 17, I thought being bald would be a disaster – now, if a guy is fit and dresses well, I think it can be a really good look! So thank you for helping the younger guys out there, and I’ll look forward to more posts on the site!
Again, I am incredibly humbled by this email. Thank you Tim again! You are truly Attractive Bald Man. And at the same time, I feel responsibility to keep going with this incredibly passionate project of mine – Bald Attraction, to keep spreading the message and helping especially you young guys out there, who go through something Tim a I and many, many others went through before and those many who will go through in very young age. Let’s help them become Confident, Bold, Attractive, Bald Men.
