    but yeah all you young dudes edneed to realize you're definitely gonna be worrying about mpb at 30.
    True, I also think one if the reasons is because late 20's and 30's are the prime age for men. By this time most likely have gained heaps of confidence, found their identity place in the world and at the very least have a good career started with goals in mind. Also we have learned the ropes with dating, know how women really are what they go after. Women at the same age are becoming less and less desired.. the roles switch.

    It never stops. I am 47 and I suspect I will still be fussing over my hair at 65.

    The age where it is acceptable to be bald is probably 50, but why accept it if you can do something about it?

    This is very common. By time we are in our mid to late 30s, we have well established careers and know what we are doing. By this time we are able to avoid 95% of the pitfalls in life younger guys go through.

    All to see our hair fall out??? Its natures great equalizer.

    This exactly. I keep myself in pretty good shape and with the way I dress, when I wear a hat people easily think I look 10 years younger than I am.

    What branch of the military and what rank/rate are you? I'm curious because I am a cadet at a service academy.

    I'm a year younger than you. When you're 18-21 years old 30 seems like a lifetime away so I can kind of understand where the younger guys are coming from (hell, I had a similar outlook). Life comes at you fast though. Also, thirty years old nowadays is not the same when my dad was 30 years old and people settled down much younger. A lot of successful guys I work with are in their 30s/40s and are still bachelors. There used to be a strong stigma against that not too long ago.

    Also, I don't think I'll stop caring if I get married. Never understood the mentality of people who let themselves go just because they get married. I want my gf, wife, or whomever I'm sleeping with to be attracted to me.

    ..and to the OP, stay on your gym and hair regimen until a non-systemic treatment comes out, hair cloning, etc. I'm pretty cynical as to when that's ever going to happen but if you can hold on to what you have with finasteride that's probably the best way to go until something better is available.

    This.

    The woman can easily dump or divorce you. You are then left not only heartbroken, but less attractive.

    It's sad that men's sexual life span seems to be dictated by their hairloss.
