This may seem like a silly question, but is something that I wonder about. I've had moderate acne since I was 15, and i had two boyfriends in high school which I learned later broke up with me because my acne was "gross". My skin is much better now, but I still have some scars. I'm just wondering if older guys (not 16 year old assholes) would break up with a girl solely because of her acne.

If I were to reject/break up with a girl because she didn't have perfect skin, I'd be quite the hypocrite. I break out every now and then, since I have oily skin (thanks, Italian genes!). And my breakouts are the nasty cystic kind that takes weeks to fully go away. I have it mostly under control now, but sometimes I break out, especially when I'm under prolonged stress.
If her acne were totally out-of-control, it would be a completely different story. But if she has slight, or even moderate acne, it really wouldn't be the end of the world at all.1

Ugh I used to have it badly too! It sucks and it can be painful. Luckily, I found a great cleaner. No I don't think it's a deal breaker, and if it is then he wasn't worth your time to begin with.'1
