    Please, we all know you're an ugly virgin who wishes he looked good bald.
    Stop making up these lame ass stories

    There's not much else i could've done in terms of catching it earlier. As soon as I turned 18 I began Finasteride and had been on Minox for a few months prior to that. I'm currently around a NW2, which although not terrible is still very disheartening, as well as very very abnormal.

    'very very abnormal'??? What planet are you living on? Such a huge percentage of men have hair loss to that degree!! and yes even young guys.

    This. I am around a NW1-NW1.2 and I have a better hairline than like 90% of men I see on campus. NW2 is pretty damn common.

    This.



    And stop being a pu$$y, please. Clearly people survive baldness and lead enjoyable lives. You, for whatever reason, can't employ vision beyond the immediate.

    That said, when you get older and more mature, you'll better understand. It's one of those pieces of knowledge that is nearly impossible to project onto others; you need to grow up and experience it yourself.

    Baldness is just another undesirable genetic trait, like a small penis, a big crooked nose, acne, being short, etc. Just because you're afflicted by one and can't appropriately cope doesn't mean that it needs to be eradicated.

    I'm sure balding at 16 ****in' blows but it, like other undesirable aesthetic traits, will remain. The choice is yours whether or not to let your nuts drop and pursue a rewarding life regardless.

    By the way, I feel like duta + ru would work for 100% of all people provided they tolerate any sides that arise. Fin already works for over 90% of people.
    I am being mostly selfish when I say what I am saying. As someone that wants a shot at being normal and happy, I see kids and a wife as part of the picture. I really don't want to be that unmarried 50 year old guy without kids that everyone thinks is a little weird or must have something wrong with him. I wish to mask my flaws as well as I can.

    A NW2 can easily be fixed with a simple hair transplant, so stop trolling around Mister.

    NW2 is nothing. At that stage it is easy to style your hair to look NW1, & even if you comb it straight back most people will not think of you as balding

    NW2a-3 is when your options really start to get screwed

    Literally just yesterday my buddy mentioned his Uncle is that dude (late 40's and never married, no kids, etc.). A shock wave of fear, pity, and sympathy went through me.

    I don't plan to get married until ~30, but if I got to 35 I'd probably just settle with whatever.
