One thing you might want to consider here is the fact that she could be attracted to you.

Women (and men) often use a put down to someone to generate a reaction. It's a test to see how sensitive someone is and whether they are concerned about what someone thinks of them.

If she said "you are really hot and have gorgeous hair", you'd just thing 'nice compliment, thanks' and shrug it off. So by paying you a negative, it's made you think about her and think about yourself in a slightly more negative way.

People also often do this when they think someone is out of their league, as it makes them feel better and brings their potential new partner down a peg to their level.

End of the day, don't worry about it, you have great hair (and will be the envy of most on here), so forget about the comment and reply with something cheeky.

I'm only 5ft 7" and women sometimes say "aren't you short". It used to bother me but now just reply with something funny or cheeky like "makes no difference when you are horizontal though does it?" or "I'm just saving you from getting neck ache".

Just act un-phased by it (and don't be phased by it)

Hope this helps in some way

Rob

I've also posted about my crown, and was told I shouldn't worry, that that's fine also. I just have a parting, light hair, and a red scalp. No thinning or loss. Fine with me.

I've been to doctors, derms, you name it, and they've said my hair is fine.

So anyway, my hair has gotten fairly longer than I usually wear it, and I was speaking to some friends about whether I should just leave it to grow long... not hippy style, just longer than usual. They said I needed it cut, because the sides are thick and my fringe is quite long. Then my friends girlfriend said "get it cut because you're going a bit 'baldy'. Well that's MESSED ME UP GOOD STYLE, and I've started the whole taking pictures of my hair again.

SO! As I said, I feel my hairline is fine:



So that's not the reason my mates girlfriend said it to me.... but she wouldn't have seen my crown, as I'm taller than her.



But that doesn't look 'baldy', does it?

HMMMM. It's bugging me, because after all my time posting on forums and going to docs, derms etc, and it's been established there isn't a problem with my hair, this girl says this to me.

What do you guy's reckon?

Muchas gracias.
Hi Jonnykino,

Your pics show a normal healthy head of hair. Let's not let random comments from a hater mess with our psyche. Your hair and scalp look great. When it really becomes a concern than post again. Seems, like that might be a fair bit down the road!
All the Best, Michael

IMO she's seen a bit of scalp because you have a crazy swirl in your crown and assumed you were going bald when it's just how your crown parts as it swirls quite big also the fact that your scalp is red will have brought attention to it but I don't think you've lost any hair and highly doubt any of your hairs have started to miniturise!!

Make sure she knows when she puts weight on it will teach her a lesson about manners!!

Hey all.

Sorry for the long response, been bogged down with work. So yeah, apparently she said it because, when am under bright lights and my hair is wet, you can see scalp on top, and because my scalp is red. I mean, I've noticed it too when I get out the shower in specific lighting conditions, but I figured it was normal. Now I've been told that, I keep thinking diffuse thinning, but am not sure whether the fact you can see scalp when hair is wet under certain lights means it's that?

Thanks for the replies everyone, I appreciate it a lot.

Jonny,

When everybodies hair is wet after the shower, you can see scalp. Often in normal lighting situations and definitely under bright lights. This is also true for females with shorter hair. Forget diffuse thinning. You have no thinning or loss. Try and get past this, because there is nothing here. Relax!

Wow JohnnyKino, this sounds like the kindergarten crush where the girl picks on the boy cause she really likes him...LOL! Seriously man; don't spend one more nanosecond on this person's notions. They are out in the stratosphere some where. Be a confident man that's what attractiveness is about. Strong self image and guess what you just happen to also have a great head of hair....All the Best, Michael.

your hair looks better than many guys, but your girlfriend may have done you a favor. your hair line is not straight across in the corners and is see through in the vertex so i do see some maturation or possible loss. she is seeing it up close so at least you are aware of the issue if and when it progresses.
