Siblings
 
I have been teasing my brother about his thinning hair, but I think he is starting to feel bad about it and I feel baaaadddd about giving him a hard time about it. Is this really something that men get offended about? Now, I have to make it up to him. Any ideas? other than buying him a bottle of Jack Daniels?

If he likes Jack Daniels then give him one, and say sorry if he really was offended

Well, I did find something that should make him feel better. I discovered that this company offers free consultations and I told him about it. I think he was not happy with my suggestion, though. What is it that they say about grief? He is in the denial stage ... ... I am not a mean sister. In fact, I am a lot nicer than he is - he used to make me cry teasing me about my weight, but this is really something that I think is too sensitive to discuss. I guess I learned my lesson the hard way :(

Some may shrug it off and go on with their lives not caring if their head started losing its hair but there are some (like your brother) who’s a little bit conscious and would be hurt by your teasing. Make it a double bottle of Jack Daniels LOL

I don't think a man losing his hair is anything to be ashamed about.
As you can tell, I've lost a lot of mine.
It's normal and some men look more sexy that way.

Women gain weight as they age.
It's also nothing to freak about.

But if you lose hair, or become obese, as a youngster, perhaps there is an issue.

I lost a bit of my hair when I had cancer, but it's back now. Teasing someone about it is OK, IMO.
