Without question, a full head of hair. If you're in great shape while balding, it is still really shitty. Girls always stare at that bald dome.

Vin Diesel, Jason Stratham, Yul Bryner (google him if you're under 40) Dwayne Johnson....

If it's one or the other, I think in shape and bald/buzzed takes it every time.

Fat, with a full head of hair...........Nah...

Non of these guys (well maybe Bryner) look any good to me and most important: Non of These guys looks any good to a single Girl I have ever dated.

These are very specific type of men for very specific type of women. No option for me at all.

In a hypothetical situation, if you couldn't change being fat or being bald, I would take being fit and bald.

It's very easy to control your weight and reverse weight gain.

It's extremely difficult to control hair loss and reverse baldness.

"My wife said I can be fat." "My wife said I can be bald, but I cannot be fat and bald." He went on to say I've tried every diet, so give me some hair."

That was a memorable moment. However, while the gentleman was quite affable, many of his health issues where weight related.

Well I'm not a guy and I check out these forums because I'm planning on fixing my traction alopecia. From a woman's perspective, I would pick a balding fit guy over a overweight guy with the most luscious head of hair every day of the week. Maybe you guys won't believe me because the fact that you're on this website means you have a preoccupation with hair (that's not an insult BTW because I'm here too) but I genuinely believe a lot of times a man looks better with no hair. I think it looks tough and masculine, which I find attractive. I actually came across a study that found people perceive bald guys as more dominant, which makes a lot of sense to me: http://opim.wharton.upenn.edu/DPlab/...0dominance.pdf

I've posted a few times regarding this matter saying that most women over 25 would prefer a guy fit and toned who is bald, to a guy who is fat/unfit with a full head of hair, plenty actually prefer the bald look ,
I will qualify this though and say the type of guy women find attractive bald ,is a certain type as stated above, but also the right shaped head and facial features and not forgetting a certain swagger goes along way,unfortunately a lot of guys don't fit that type of look and personality and definitely look better with hair.
