Dating, no matter what ethnicity you are or if you have hair or not, can be very difficult. However, if you are balding or just recently shaved your head, dating can be a scary territory if you don’t have the full confidence yet to rock the bald look. We understand that male pattern baldness can take a toll on your dating life, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The best way to combat this is to go and put yourself out there. If you’re not willing to take the chance, then you will never see the results. As the famous Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
In this article, we are going to dive into six ways to enhance your dating game. Some of these techniques may seem obvious, but many men don’t take the time to put them to practice.
Get in the Zone:
If you haven’t dated in a while and you’re going back into the wild, you have to go in with the right mindset. The key here is having the right level of confidence. What you want to convey is a level of humble confidence which shows that you are comfortable in your own skin and confident in the way you look. Now, some guys take this too far and appear overconfident and cocky which can be a huge turn-off to many women.
Have a Plan:
This may seem obvious, but you would be surprised by how many guys don’t have a plan when setting up a date. Now we are not saying you have to plan the date down to every last detail but having a general plan of how the night is going to go is important. Obviously making a reservation is important, but also knowing where to sit in the restaurant could really help. It can be smart to check out the location and make sure you won’t be seated by the bathrooms or in a crowded spot. Also, for you bald guys, knowing where to sit is important in terms of temperature conditions. If you plan on sitting outside, bringing a hat to keep your head warm will be important and if you’re sitting inside, avoid being seated directly under a light because it may cause you to sweat.
Now, if you’re bald and in the dating game, bearding up is vital. Rocking a beard with a bald head will allow you to appear more masculine and will level out the amount of hair on your face. Picking the right outfit is also vital but being bald gives you an advantage. Since you don’t have any hair, you have the ability to be bolder in terms of style options. This doesn’t mean wearing a plaid suit to a first date is the way to go, but be a little adventurous in your style.
Use the Right Products:
Using the right products on your head is important when going to your first date. First off, you want to use a solid mattifier beforehand so you’re not a spotlight in the room! Second, shave your head with a safety razor to get a close shave. You don’t want to have a lot of stubble and look messy when you’re on your date. Third and finally, use a mellow aftershave on your head that isn’t overpowering but has a nice scent.
The Elephant in the Room:
The final tip is to not be afraid to talk about your bald head. It is very clear to your date and everyone else in the room that you’re bald, so be open to making fun of yourself and owning up to it. Making a little joke here and there can go along the way because it shows you have a sense of humor and a strong sense of confidence.
