Date Larry?

As a man perceived to be erudite on the subject of bald men, I’ve frequently been asked to answer the following question:

“What is it like to date a bald guy?”

My answer:

While the merits of dating a bald man are debatable, there’s no doubt such a choice reflects some level of sophistication on the partner.

Besides looking beyond society’s conventions of physical attractiveness, dating a bald man demonstrates the courage to go against convention and to follow both one’s head and heart.

Further, what time a bald man does not waste taming an unruly mop, must surely, go somewhere more deserving?

Does he have intellectual ferocity? An insatiable curiosity about the world? Or a fervent desire to become the best he can be?

He must have learned to work well with his hands. To protect loved ones, To craft sourdough bread. Or something else…


Romantic notions aside, every bald man indeed has a unique personality. It’s wise for the potential date to seek opinions of those close to him.

A good bet would be to ask his mom. And someone of a different gender, maybe his sister for a more complete picture of such a rare, sometimes shiny, specimen of mankind.
