How many of your relatives know that you post stuff on a hair loss forum? That you googled stuff like Minoxidil and Finasteride? That you researched hairtransplants and made comments about Justin Bibers Norwood 1,5?
In my case, just my girlfriend and my parents know it. I still can't be that "honest" and downplay balding because I realise with every problem in your life, people do not really understand it until they have it themselves. it's just reality. For example, my mother told me she thinks Prince William looks awful but at the same time tells me the hair transplant wasn't necessary. But its not like that I would look like him in 10 years without finasteride and an hair transplant. In 10 years, suddenly people tell you in your face you look awful and you make a registration on Reddit /MGTOW (I stole that joke from Admin). You can't win with people but you can win with yourself.
