    But I understand wanting to tell him. Almost makes me neurotic seeing some guy just let his hair go to waste for months, years even
    A friend I met last year is like NW 3.5 & his head/face are all wrong for it. His father tagged him in an old photo on FB when he was like NW1.5-2 w/ bangs....HOLY SH*T he was like another person. He was actually a goodlooking guy

    I understand the potential problems getting involved could create. I just remember my own situation. Being misinformed destroyed my hair. If I would have known 15 years ago what I know today, my hair might be in totally different shape.

    Good for you man. I'm happy to read a positive post from a fin/minoxidil user.

    Don't bring it up
    Taking the " big 3 " as people like to say isn't going to bring his hair back to the way it was .
    I buzz my head to a zero, I bet other balding men who care about their hair loss look at me and say "Damn, I wish I could be like him, look at him, he just shaved and moved on." Little did they know I have nearly 1500 posts on a hairloss forum, and a couple hundred posts on other hair loss forums and have thought about hair loss every single day of my life since it started when I was 16 years old(now 25). Buzzing your head doesn't mean you dealt with it IMO, it could just be that you are using rogaine and finasteride/dutasteride every day just to wait to do something better about it some day.

    When I see young/or middle aged men with a shaved head I don't assume he's happy about it or that that is his final resolution to his hair loss. I see it more like he could have moved on yes, but also it could be a temporary thing.

    I have been buzzing my head for about 10 years. I was not happy with it when I first started, and not happy about it now. I do it because in my eyes this is the best option for the quantity of hair that I have.

    Just throw my 2 cents in.

    I was out on valantines day, got a haircut. But this time I told my hairdresser to keep my fringe longer and slightly longer on top - giving me a NW1 apperance.

    I got SO MUCH attention, girls winking at me, blowing kisses. Girls with boyfriends, holding my hand after meeting them for 2 minutes, and telling me to stay with them if I jokingly say I have gotta go.

    Last month, my hairline was more exposed after a haircut, I got told that I looked gay and ugly by a girl. Another person thought I looked like I was 30+. I am now getting IDed.

    So my point is, OP you should tell him about treatments, at least he can buy some time that way and get a wife.

    It's a nice idea but I reckon either look to make a friend or leave it alone. It's kind of an awkward thing to discuss sincerely for many people. Often people will joke and pretend not to care about it. On the other hand everyone appreciates having a friend going through similar things, and possibly being able to tease out the topic in the right setting.

    Also yeah it's hard to read someone by their hairstyles like you mentioned... The way I see it: having a bit of a combover is a relatively tidy option for people with very limited options. Denial or not, people won't part their hair through all the thin spots because it looks even sillier than a combover. Shaving is another tidy option but it doesn't necessarily mean acceptance. People seem to respect it more, but I mean buzzing it takes more effort than letting it grow, so I can't really imagine what someone's mental state is either way...

    So you'd recommend a co-worker take a drug that you won't touch with a stick yourself?

    I think your opinion of Finasteride might change once you develop a bad patch..each day passes mine is .
