Online Dating Study Shows Top 10 Cities Where Women Prefer Bald Men

A recent study conducted by OurTime.com, an online dating site for those 50 and older who are seeking love, found the top cities in the U.S. in which women would rather their future boyfriend be bald, according to The Huffington Post.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, takes the top spot, allowing male residents to skip the Rogaine and accept their lack of hair. New York City came in second, followed by Phoenix, Arizona; Minneapolis, Minnesota and San Diego, California. Other cities in the top 10 include Brooklyn, New York; Chicago, Illinois; Houston, Texas; Tucson, Arizona and Tampa, Florida.

Many women can attest to the lack of importance placed on a man's hair when it comes to romance. Jocelyn Morrow, 48, met her 56-year-old husband Craig Blout on the online dating website Plenty of Fish about nine months ago, and she is more than happy with not running her fingers through his hair.

"It's smooth and I like to pet his head - kind of like a cat. It's more intimate," Morrow told the news source.

Regardless of what a woman's type is, one thing's for sure - online dating is definitely on the rise. While this venue can provide the opportunity for love, there are a few safety concerns to keep in mind, including keeping mobile privacy intact by never giving out personal information. It is also important to go into online dating with an open mind, according to Discovery News.

"Despite hundreds of millions of dollars spent on hugely expensive advertising campaigns claiming to use psychology or relationship science, they haven't produced any evidence that these work that any scientists would find compelling," Eli Finkel, social psychologist at Northwestern University in Chicago, told the news source. "People aren't two-dimensional profiles. You can figure out in a matter of minutes or even seconds if there's a spark. Fifty million hours of reading profiles online isn't going to tell you that."
