Hey guys, nice to join the forum and a pleasure talking with you all. I can say that like most, the terrible paranoia of whether I am balding or not has driven me to join this forum. Denial can be a powerful thing! It is really unfortunate we can't look at ourselves the way others do, for me its making me crazy thinking I may be balding. I have really long hair, chest length. When you grow this long, there is a weird phenomenon where guys will bald and be completely oblivious to it. I, like most can't accept being a bald, long hair so I am enlisting your eyes to let me know if I am balding or just maturing and being really neurotic. I'll let the pics speak for themselves, but to preface, there is no balding in my family, My paternal side all has thick, though slightly receded hair in the corners. My maternal grandfather kept a thick, juvenile hairline till he died. My hairline has always been a prominent widows peak. I have two cowlicks in my hairline, both were always fine and thin but now it looks like they are "maturing??" away. I attached pics just after washing so you get a true look. Also when I was young the cowlicks on both sides of my central widows peak always arched up. I wrinkled my brow in some pics to show the juvenile placement. I am 27. Anyways, let me know and thanks!
