Stage 1: “The Newbie” (0-6 months): Find hair multiplication (HM) forum on hairsite.com, read exciting new findings on combating hair loss. Get excited about the advances in research on hair multiplication.
Stage 2: “The Expert” (6 months to 1 year): Read posts that say “It’s never going to happen” or “It’s Saturday night and I’m bald.” Write passionate, long, and detailed responses on how a cure for hair loss is just around the corner. Cite Gho, Histogen, Follica, Aderans, and obscure Japanese companies.
Stage 3 “The Wallflower” (1-2 years): Check forum every now and then. Glad that a cure is around the corner, but don’t bother replying to the naysayers. Think of checking this forum as a hobby, and reading about hair loss cures as a side interest (like playing squash, or collecting stamps). Post a response every now and then.
Stage 4 “The Troll” (2+ years): Check forum again. Depressed beyond words. See former self in the newbies, experts, and wallflowers. Post a few short, bitter posts. Tell the Newbies “Five more years!”
