Top 10 Cities Where Women Prefer Bald Men
Good news for the folically challenged.
"When's the last time you saw a bald president?" Larry David recently asked in an interview with Huffington Post. "There'll be a woman and a Jewish president and maybe even a Muslim president before a bald president. That's my prediction: There'll be a Muslim president before a bald president."
They may feel discriminated against, but a recent survey brings good news to the bald community: plenty of women actually prefer a hairless head. Online dating site OurTime.com ranked the top cities where bald guys get the most attention from ladies.
Florida looks like the best state for single, bald men. Fort Lauderdale topped the list while Tampa came in at No. 10. New York came in second, and while Los Angeles didn't make the cut, San Diego ranked No. 5.
If you've ever been subjected to those hair transplant commercials where bald men are depicted as undateable, you can feel sympathy for the bald community. And unfortunately, statistics show that some ladies do discriminate.
According to a 2008 European survey, 17 percent of French women and 16 percent of Italian women said they wouldn't date a man who's losing his hair. But only 11 percent of British women said the same, and even better news—only 4 percent of Scottish women won't date a bald guy.
But these women are cutting themselves off from a large percentage of the male population. Researchers say more than half of men will experience baldness by the age of 50. In fact, 30 percent of men will be affected by baldness by age 30.
So ladies, I leave you with a final thought from Mr. David:
"Anyone can be confident with a full head of hair. But a confident bald man - there's your diamond in the rough."
A full list of the 10 cities where bald men have the most luck:
- Fort Lauderdale, FL
- New York, NY
- Phoenix, AZ
- Minneapolis, MN
- San Diego, CA
- Brooklyn, NY
- Chicago, IL
- Houston, TX
- Tucson, AZ
- Tampa, FL

My concern is that if you look at the list of cities, they all have a high population so, it would go to show that just based on the amount of people there, you are going to have a greater chance at love being a bald man. It's like comparing an apple to a watermelon.
Me, I don't care if men are bald. Some bald men are extremely sexy while others, not so much. Same goes for men with hair. I have dated a few bald men and it wasn't something I focused on. There are more important issues like, does he have a job, do I trust my children with him ect.
For the past 8 years I have been with a man who has longer hair than I do and mine is down to the middle of my back. But if we ever broke up, I would date a bald man.

Are you in an affair without knowing it? Unless you’re a swinger, having sex with someone else counts as cheating. But then there’s the fuzzy area between friendship and infidelity—and chances are, your girlfriend sees those shades of gray as more black and white than you do. “Men aren’t as attuned to identifying ambiguous behaviors as cheating as women are,” says Daniel Kruger, Ph.D., a University of Michigan psychologist, who’s studied gender differences in definitions of infidelity. In other words, what you consider totally innocent could be her deal breaker.
