    This just crossed my mind since I ran into a rogan ad online.

    i met a friend for lunch yesterday. He is taller than me, about 5'11" so I dont usually see the top of his head. Not until yesterday. he bent down to tie his shoe lace and I saw the top of his scalp, clearly. you're probably thinking "thats normal"... well, not when your hair is 5 inches long on top.

    *friend bends down to tie his shoes*
    Me: Hoooooly
    Friend: What?
    Me: uh. i like your shoes!
    Friend: Thanks!
    *friend finishes tying shoe laces, looks up and catches me staring with eyes wide open*
    Me: very nice!
    Friend: Thanks. i got them blah blah blah (my mind tuned him out since I was still thinking about his balding head).
    Me: haha. i see.
    Friend: That was a question.
    Me: oh.
    Friend: whats wrong with you?
    Me: tired. *fake yawn*

    Anyways, he is a good friend, great guy. He is chronically single but is constantly looking for a boyfriend. He likes taller guys which kinda makes me think that this could be what is preventing him from getting someone who would commit. Totally speculating of course.

    I don't want him to be one of those guys who are obviously trying to make it work when, well, it doesn't. However, I don't want to be the jerk that tells him it either.

    Take a closeup picture of his bald spot and email it to him.

    what? *mildly surprised* Why didnt you answer to his "What?" with "You're losing hair bro, just noticed it". He will take it like an adult (hopefully, unless he is 13). It's not like he doesnt know it already.

    i.e. the taller guys are able to spot the balding better than the shorter guys. icon_lol.gif

    Dude he already knows. He doesn't need someone else to tell him. I'm sure he is already insecure about it. I would just mind my own business on this one.

    This, exactly.

    Maybe it bothers you more than it actually bothers him?

    Exactly. Leave him be. He already knows.

    However, if/when he starts doing a comb-over, it's time to sit him down for a talk.

    Simple.
    offer to give him a complete makeover.
    Then just tie him to a chair, take your electric shaver to town on his mallet and do what must be done, if he so much as protests, tell him it's just you being a friend.

    Telling your friend that he's balding is like telling your friend that he has acne.

    Also very true! An unnecessary observation.

    You should give your friend some biotin pills. They are very cheap and they honestly do work my balding is hardly recognizable. It makes the hair thicker.
