I knew a guy who got hair implants and it looked great for awhile. Then his head rejected it a la Tobias from Arrested Development. Sometimes it really is best just to embrace it.

My take is this: no one cares but you. But your opinion is probably the most important one for your self-confidence.

If you try Rogaine and pills, there's no real harm. Maybe it works and you like your hair. Maybe it doesn't and you're out a couple hundred bucks and are back where you started - with a set of clippers.

Any girl who isn't interested because your hair is thinning, was never going to be worth your time anyway.

This.  No one worth knowing gives a fig about your follicles.

I have male pattern baldness.  I wear my hair fairly short and have for years.  Once my forehead and my crown finally meet, I'll go with the Patrick Stewart.

One of my friends told me a study concluded bald men are viewed as more trustworthy than men with hair, so there's something positive.

I started to lose my hair in my mid 30's.  At the time it seemed awful but looking back 10 years down the road it was actually a blessing in disguise.  I was a college athlete but had put on about 20 pounds since graduating.  When my hair started to thin I focused on getting myself back in shape and dressing better to "compensate".  I thought, there are some things I can't control - like going bald - and some things I can - like being in great shape and dressing well.  I am much healthier now and look better than I did in my 30's (at least that's what my wife says). 

If I didn't lose my hair I most likely would have followed the path I was on and been overweight and sloppy.  Do I wish I had a full head of hair - definitely, but I learned a valuable lesson - control the things you can control and don't worry about the things you can't control.
