Losing my hair was a real life changer for me, as it would be for pretty much all of you.
Now I bet you think I am going to say it made me into this sex god who had women falling at my feet because I looked so good bald – well not really.
Once I had found my feet and settled into my new look, things did start to change for the better.
I felt liberated and free from trying to hide my thinning hair – my face was on display for all to see but it had a smile on it.
It was that time in the mid to late Nineties when goatee beards were all the rage, luckily I was able to grow one and overnight I seemed to look different, as if it was just what my face needed.
Honestly, things changed – I started to feel more confident in myself, dating was going well and I seemed to be able to meet some very attractive girls.
There were the obligatory ‘lads holidays’ that I went on, all of which were brilliant, not only for the drinking, fun & games but the girls.
My newfound confidence helped immensely, I found myself chatting to girls that I thought, ‘were out of my league’ but to my surprise, quite a few of them liked my shaven head and goatee beard – things were looking up.
Let’s just say the next few years in my life as a young 20 something was brilliant. I had good friends, a good job, fancy car and most of all, I got my keys to my first house.
I remember at the time looking back at my darker days, the hours spent in my room at my parents house wondering ‘why me’, crying to sleep and feeling like my world had come to and end, and I thought, if only I could have seen myself now – none of my worries would have mattered, I’m doing fine, well no, more than fine!
What I am trying to say is you are still attractive, you still have sex appeal, women will still fancy you (and so will men), friends will respect you – some will even be secretly jealous that you look so good!
If you feel your new look doesn’t suit, don’t worry, you will find your style in time.
Of course, there are always going the typical jokers that want to call you the usual names, but remember they will probably have something they really don’t like about themselves, something they feel insecure about – if you said something to them in retaliation they’d probably break down and cry!
Don’t be put off by rejection, don’t take this as sign that women don’t fancy you – all of us get rejected, it part of the dating game – everyone likes something different to next, it just a case of being out there, being confident in your own look and being able to hold a conversation – the rest is up to you… if all else fails, make them laugh 😉
I am happily married now to a beautiful, intelligent, sexy and stylish woman – she really does turn heads and I’m a lucky man.
So remember whether you’re straight, gay, bisexual there is someone out there for you – someone who likes you for who you are, what you look like and how you make them feel.
All I would say is make the most of what you’ve got, respect yourself and look after the way you look – that way you’ll always be top of your game, you sexy badass!
