    Am i being too obsessed and hopeless about myself, due to my excess body hair, which i see as a disability in matters related to relationships and hampering of self image?
    I feel "abnormal" and try to shun the girls, they are too good for me , eve for formal talks....and many times i even feel like removing my balls to remove any sexual thoughts as they are just a pain for me.

      You are what you are. And don’t go removing anything…

      Women are like men. Each individual has different preferences. I consider it a statistical certainty that a certain percentage of women actually might like the physical attributes you are concerned about. If it is a small percentage, so what? A percentage is a percentage. Be sociable and get out in the world. Let the law of averages take its course.

        even we excess hairy guys are very small percentage...i still believe any girl CAN actually like it, she might adapt it for love/money etc. etc., but surely not like it.

          Come to think of it, I wonder where the hairy women hang out…

          Maybe do a google search, but might take precautions to stay out of trouble.

          And there is no “we”, sorry. smile

      That last paragraph sounds as though you're worried about more than just excess hair - like you've got other, deeper issues and are blaming them on the hair thing.

      Nothing about the hair. You can shave it, what is more important is to have confidence in yourself. Asian women like men who have chest hair, most of them, it is a cultural thing, but of course it is different in your culture perhaps. Most women however in most culture prefer men who are confident about themselves, not about those hairs.

      Look at Tom Jones (chest hair insured for millions of dollars)

    You are who you are, and obviously if you're having to shun people then they certainly don't mind what you perceive as drawbacks as much as you do. There are some women who don't like body hair...personally, I don't get that...and there are many, like myself, who think the hairier the better wink. My husband is one of the hairiest individuals I've ever met in my life (we often joke about him being a Wookiee or lump him in with the fur-faced critters of the household), and I wouldn't have it any other way. Personally, a non-hairy man smacks of pre-pubescence to me and honestly can't see what women find attractive about "pretty boys" with shaved chests. Everyone has different preferences, so just don't worry about it and focus on sharing your true personality with others instead of focusing purely on bodily appearance.

    I am not a hairy person, but one of my best friends is.
    He had issues with it, but met a girl now who loves hairy men, and his attitude has changed dramatically in just a few days!
    I would be getting some help with the way you see yourself, as I feel your hair is not the issue, but how you feel about it.
    A few years ago I got what was said to be "terminal" cancer.
    A new operation saved my life, but took my lateral dorsal muscle and used it to fill a dinner plate sized whole in my back. As a male who at fifty had the body of a fit 30 year old I was devastated at the loss of what I saw as a big lump of my masculinity.
    The V shape of one side of my body disappeared, and left me flat down one side. I got past it with some therapy. Good luck, I wish you well. smile

    OMG don't worry about being too hairy! My guy is a woolly mammoth and I would not have it any other way! I love LOVE LOVE him that way. Like wychic said, hairless guys seem like little boys to me! YUCK! Give me a man who can tickle more than my fancy! I would bet that with a little confidence you will find a girl who loves your hairiness! Believe me, there are plenty of us out here! smile

    It's easy to say "don't worry about it" but honestly, everyone has things that they don't like about themselves. No one is perfect and that's the way it should be. We are all different for a reason (how boring if we were all the same) If hair is you're biggest concern then you should feel lucky. Be yourself and if people don't like it then that's their problem. Don't feel down on yourself just because of hair. Hair is supposed to be there so chin up big_smile
