Absolutely agree with Matt - never project your own issues onto other peoples opinions of you.

She may very well not give a damn about hair, and liked you for your eyes or personality. My own hairdresser of 1 year didn't even realise I'd had a hair transplant 7 years ago until I told her last week. My girlfriend also never notices any bad hair days even though I can obsess about them.

People just don't notice things in the same way that people who obsess over them do. Text the girl, and just be yourself. If there was great chemistry even with you wearing a cap obviously it's not that important to the dynamic what you have under there.

As Matt says - your personality and a simple smile are more powerful than any amount of hair will ever be - to the right girl. Give this one a chance.

Dear Matt,

Thank you for your encouragement and you have very well articulated that teeny bit of scruple that is lodged in my heart. Sometimes, I could see the lyrics of the song, The space between by dave matthews band come to pass. Sounds like a damaging self fulfilling prophecy.

Appreciate your kind words brother.

Hi England,

Makes good sense. Now for that leap of faith.

You and Matt have provided grounded words of wisdom, I'm grateful to be in this forum reading this.

Hi Travis,
Guys often post stories like yours and I always like to reply as I can personally relate, and I feel I've learnt a thing or two about these things. I'm glad you appreciate what I said and I hope it influences how you move forward with this girl.

It would be good if you updated us on how it goes. If it goes badly then just try and shrug it off and remember that countless guys with no hair issues are going through the same thing.

Hi Matt,

On hind sight, yeah I shld be upfront on not wearing a cap. Well, damage cannot be undone unless I go for HT. So thats one thing to bear in mind. Maybe a year or so, all will be well. Thanks buddy.

Travis1,

I feel the need to chime in here and give you a female perspective. Mattj gave you some good advice-he's a smart man. First things first- text her back. Or- call her back- texting is overrated. I can guarantee you that your hairloss bothers you more than it bothers her. Trust me. And if you liked her- why miss out on a good thing? If she's texting you, chances are that she is interested.

As for the whole job situation- don't quit your job. Many of our patients are back to work within a couple days of surgery. The brave ones are back at work the next day. As the previous gentlemen on this thread have suggested- there are other ways to fly under the radar without having to quit your job.

The three surgeons that you listed have consistently good results. Continue doing your research like you have been, and you will be on your way to a great transplant.

~Kira

p.s. After your transplant, you can say bye-bye to baseball caps on first dates!

hi all, im new to this site and feel that the laser comb that i got- in the uk called hairmax laser comb-blue colour has within 1 year made my hair follical thin and my hair loss worse by thining it drastically.

ive gone to a HT/ grafting surgeon in Thailand and he says that it will not work for me. i note that some of you are using pills which have been advised 'NOT FOR WOMEN' im so distraught and need advise on if there are any pills to use along with the regine/ rogaine for women- im only 29 and look like im still 18 lol

I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I would go speak to your doctor about either spironolactone or flutimide. They are both anti-androgens and there are numerous studies done on women. Or consult with a number of doctors in this site and see if they can help.

Travis, I applaud you for being open and sharing with us your problems. I'm here to chat if you want to PM me.
Take a step back and take things in perspective. If it really bothers you, solve your problems first then go back to the dating scene. You don't want to have a scruple in your conscience dont you.

Job wise, there is no one to please, and its all meeting targets and those corporate hoolabaloo. Don't be to worried, you can show the middle finger to anyone who talks trash to you. Its reciprocating to their nasty comment. Save the money from your job and when you find a better one with better colleagues and advancement. JUMP.

The corporate world - dont deserve your sincerity.
