I'm so sorry to be so jaded, but I wonder if that comment was written by a man masquerading as a woman, to try and be better heard.
Possibly, but I like it either way.

Your suspicion is probably justified - because women, the article illustrates it, refuse or are unable to acknowedledge the most simple dynamics in this regard.
On Thursday, I was out with a female friend. She is very rational and straightforward in general, but even she insisted: „If a guy sleeps with a woman, he must find her physically attrative enough for more.“ That is just not the case: men take whatever little they can get - unless they are Arjen and barely have sex as a consequence. Point being: I work like a woman, but I can still easily see how it works for most men.
Yup you are right. There are a few lucid girls, but they learnt by making the same mistakes again and again.

Or honestly, it would be enough to just observe others make them. Having said that, I might be the same if I were a women and all these pseudo-options presented themselves.

So I've been putting quite a decent amount of effort into engineering a perfect profile - whether it's the pics, all in optimal lighting showing a head full of hair (in my main pic, which I took yesterday after a haircut, my hair actually looks soft - like the hair I used to have pre-advanced balding), or the bio being more interesting and appealing than the average guy. And last evening I was getting bombarded with likes so it seems like it's working. xD

It's probably not hard to get a selfie with Pauline Hanson.

You can get one with Peter Dutton as well. You'll look strikingly handsome by comparison.

xD Being in Collingwood not sure if I’d get a single match with either of those even on 1000 swipes

What surgeon did you go to and what Norwood did you start? Any chance you'd post photos of your transplant results?

A local clinic in my country.

When I had my 1st transplant I was NW5 or very close. I was at the point where I had to buzz my head and rock the baldie which looked awful. As you can see, my situation has improved significantly.

Thanks mate. Just goes to show that many bald guys really don't HAVE TO be that way. But what I usually hear from them in real life is along the lines of "I've been bald for years. It did bother me a bit at first, but I got used to it.. it is what it is". The human survival instinct is too strong.

Set my age to 27 (10 years younger than I actually am), only 1 pic, with hat. :problem:
The likes are now of a quality where I‘d without the cheating think: ok, not my dream girls, but, well, fair, finally some who are ~6, why not meet a few of them if they seem somewhat reasonable otherwise. While this to me feels like the (still quite low) level I feel I „deserve“, it surely doesn‘t mean I cn reach it. Not at 37, not with a bald head.
Social circle/work gets my access to attractive women, but it‘s really ridiculous by now to witness how your looks are your (only) cap. While the 6.5 who bought me a beer makes sure I may of course return the favor, but at the next group gathering (which was my envisioned setting anyway...), the 3-4 openly suggests that we don‘t need to wait for such an occasion. This is the latest of so many similar examples that I am resigning. The women I like are not interested, the dating market has decided so, and it really doesn‘t matter whether I find this fair.
The options remaining are:
- Importing a cute woman, from Mexico or so. Providing wouldn‘t necessarily be my main concern, but I like interesting conversations (a reason why good-looking women from work like me, I suppose) and I like things neat and tidy. I‘m weary of mentality conflicts and language barriers.
- Settling for a smart and affluent Swiss woman and dating down in looks. Having the smart & affluent part fulfilled would still leave me in a better place than most average men here. Apart from nationality, I had this set-up before and it made me unhappy.
- Coming to terms with the prospect of leading the life of now but without hoping for and seeking women.
I‘m leaning towards option 3, with not nearly as much bitterness as one might expect.
