Hairy Problems?

Hair Style
Well, this is one area where your photograph is a dead give-away. You may look at the photograph of the lady and be attracted, then at first meeting find that she looks completely different. Ok, we’re not all shallow and can see past a hairstyle, but don’t go along to first dates with set expectations about looks. That’s why an up-to-date photograph is important, both ways round.

If you are male and bald, then most ladies I have discussed this with do not see that as an issue. Inevitably one or two do, but I think that they are definitely in the minority, and they usually say so in the ‘perfect match’ section of their profile. And, as a bald man you can always remind them that it's down to an excess of male hormones (make sure you smile when you say it!).

Facial & Body Hair
Most ladies don’t fill this box in! But as a man, if you have facial hair then on average it will reduce your attractiveness. I had a short beard for more than 30 years, so I should know – I’ve been told. Be truthful if you have one (or shave it off as I eventually did).

I’ve seen ladies’ profiles where they explicitly mention that male nose and ear hair is a definite no-no, so I keep a suitable trimmer handy and stay neat. I have one friend who regularly suggests trimming my eyebrows, but I’ve drawn the line at that so far. I’ve no experience in, or comments to make, on shaving the other bits of myself, though it can be fun shaving someone else’s!

I’ve met ladies who loathe chest rugs and others who love them. I think you’ve just got to live with what you’ve got!
