It takes a certain kind of guy to pull this off, but when it works, it really really works.
The thing that the first group should know is that some of them can turn Grandpa-weird-bald into “Mmm, Sexay! I think I would feel very uncomfortable— I’m a heterosexual male. That might be a little strange—unless it happened after we had been together a while due to some disease or treatment.

I’ve never been in the situation because I’m relatively young, and most of the guys I could be potentially interested in haven’t been bald.But, I honestly don’t know if it would impact my decision to date someone or not.

NO I hate partially bald myself, cruel trick played on me by someone.
