I have not yet worn a topper and I am quite frightened of the experience. But I have come to the stage in my hair loss journey where it is becoming more embarrassing to show everyone how bald I am than to just wear something to cover it up. I have read where some women compare it to putting on makeup or wearing a new article of clothing or jewelry, and I am trying very hard to liken it to that. I am 54 and single, and I so much want to have someone special in my life. I don't get many dates (probably because I have no hair) and the thought of wearing a topper and dating someone new with it on, and the timing as to "when" you tell someone that your hair is not "your real" hair, is terrifying! First date, so they can walk away informed? After they are hooked and then they find it awkward to leave but hate that you are bald? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
