    This may be a bit early, but I noticed some chatter about the 2016 US Gymnastics team recently hanging out at a beach.

    [​IMG]
    And I briefly looked into a couple of their Instagrams and noticed the young man in the middle, Donnell Whittenburg, may have a receding hair line or a fivehead.



    I'm curious. Does seeing his uncovered head change his degree of attractiveness or any other impression you have of him? I think he's attractive either way, but there was a very slight reduction in attractiveness, or maybe disappointment, upon seeing his scalp. Some pics, angles and facial impressions may also be less flattering than others. I'd say the following photo, where his head just looks shaved, is a little kinder to his look.



    In any case, I encourage anyone balding or disturbed by their hairline to reveal or conceal it as they please. Nothing to be ashamed of, though I may caution against Man Weaves.

    Has anyone ever encountered someone who always obscured or concealed their hair in some way, later discovering an unexpected lack of hair or unusual hairstyle? Did you react in some way? How?

    EDIT: Also, if anyone who has lost hair is willing to share, how did you react to the discovery? Do you find that people react if they don't know from the jump? I have a friend in his mid-20's who says he knows he's slowly losing his. It bothers him and he doesn't think the shaved look will work for him. I think he'll look fine but I know loss can be hard to accept.

    He needs to top playin n let that shyt go! Thats how u know gymnastics is heavily black lacking sport. If he was a baller he'd have been gettin fried n roasted, and would have alrdy been shaved.

    Def still a sexy dude. Always thought those lil balls of muscle gymnasts were sexy.

    I agree with @SB3, let it go.
    I think he definitely looks better in the white where he appears bald.
    I've been blessed or cursed depending on viewpoints with an abundant hair gene. I shave it bald on and off throughout the spring to fall.
    At my age I'm surprised it still grows in full. I'm the only male among my cousins that can do so.

    Hes still attractive to me but the hair is a little against him. To his credit I think that he also has ingrown hairs in the back of his head ( I saw them on camera once). I have sympathy for him because I face the same issue and see a dermatologist even though mine is not that bad. So going completely bald might not be a choice for him for dermatology reasons. I fear the same thing if my hair ever recedes. I hope he makes it to the Olympics though. Hes actuality only 21; He must eat a lot of cornbread and grits lol

    I am team bald all the way. I like your friend starting balding at 22. It should not have been a shock because it is genetic. Dad, uncles etc. I was upset because male friends were sporting dreads, afros, and cornrows (hated those.) The last pic of this gentleman brings it all together for me. He would catch my attention with this look.

    Why are black people so fascinated and enthralled with hairlines? Who the hell cares let him wear it how he wants.

    Lol. Black people love hairlines..I think its because a full head of hair and a sharp line exhibits youthfulness I suppose or looking suave.

    I wonder where this obsession came from? Having perfect hairlines and nice shoes...I wonder if it's a fetish..haha (no shots towards anyone into these things.)

    Personally, bald men are sexy.

    In my opinion, I am not into the man weave thing but just as I don't like it, someone else may like it.

    Many bald men of all ethnic backgrounds prove that bald can be sexy.

    He looks good as he is. He also looks to have the best abs of the bunch. Hell I remember when the George Jefferson look was 'normal' lol...but I won't go there.

    But speaking of hair, what about that guy in the back with that greenish/blue mess on his head? :mjlol:

    It sorta suits him, kinda, maybe. It gives him a goofy jock vibe, and I'm okay with that.

    I wouldn't have minded if he angled the selfie stick downward to get more of their lower halves, and if they all wore shorter shorts to show more legs like the guy on the left.

    No lie, I just had this thought last night. Saw handsome black dude my age with a brimmed cap on in the supermarket. My first thought is he's probably going bald and holding on to it, kinda turned me off. EVEN THOUGH i DIDN'T GET CONFIRMATION. The mere thought turned me off, smh. I can do shaved bald head, but a dude holding on (especially if its the back bald spot or the ugly thinning hair thing) is a no-no.

    So to answer the question, yeah the dude in the photo was hot initially but his stock slightly dropped for me after seeing the second photo.

    Really? Even a bald spot on the back? Damn I have had one of those for 25 years! lol. Those poor guys in Atlanta...gotta eat their fries right, no hair receding or even a bald spot in the back... never an even slightly limp wrist or a wayward upturned pinky finger. Those guys in Atlanta are not going to stand a chance. :sadbron:

    When is that next dating installment? I have to live vicariously through the dating lives of others so get out there and report back to us....and have something juicy to report to make @African King and @SB3 jealous.

    LOL I give dudes a fair shot all the time but they gotta meet me halfway. When they don't: :camby:

    I'm not perfect either and have been dumped myself for dumb reasons so it all washes out in the rinse.

    Next dating chapter comes when I actually go out on a date, lol. Can't lie, work has been kicking my ass lately. Been doing 11-12 hour days just about every day since early December (except over the holidays).

    I wonder if any average joe has taken measures along the lines of François Sagat's scalp tattoo.

    This is the unfortunate result of being an early adopter. The new techniques are a lot better.

    This is actually quite surprisingly to me not so bad.
    For some reason I get this and it somehow makes sense, whereas the man weave thing to me is completely ridiculous.

    I myself wouldn't do it but I think I look better bald than I do with hair.

    I think he needs to let it go. Honestly it doesn't lessen how attractive he appears yet it does become distracting. I have a full head of hair, locs hanging below my shoulders and the moment that I realize that I have receeded or have hair loss in the top of my head this hair is going to be cut BALD!!! I don't think it will happen in this lifetime for me as my bloodline has suggested, but if it does and it looks crazy you have to find a way for it not to look crazy.

    and Louis Smith always leaves me :whew:
