Tyler, congrats for taking the step.
Here's what you have to remember: you were 43, middle aged, you had a wife who loved you and you had kids, probably a good job and beautiful house.... You had the complete package and it still took you that long to ditch the wig.
Most guys here are 20's, 30's, no girlfriend, no kids, no beautiful house. The ONLY thing standing between them and achieving all that is something as silly and superficial as no hair and yet that is the one thing that most girls put at the top of their priority list: a full head of hair.
That one thing is what keeps most guys at home on weekends staring at their computer screens chatting in chatrooms instead of going out and trying to get a girl.
25, bald, 5'4" to 5'8", slender...I wouldn't wish that fate on my worst enemy if i was looking to get a girlfriend.
There's no attractive way to paint the truth.
