I am so self-conscious about my skin that sometimes I feel like committing suicide.
At first glance, you would probably see nothing. But if you get up close, I have a very bumpy forehead with closed comedones. (Below is a picture of a forehead similar to mine.) I also have kind of large pores on either side of my nose and I seem to have tiny little bumps around that area. My forehead is always oily and bumpy and I hate it so much. I also have acne pits, which makes my skin look like desert or something.
I know that I am fortunate since my skin could be a lot worse. I am lucky that I don't have any acne whatsoever on my cheeks, but I still feel awful about my skin because I fear I will never be able to get close to opposite sex because I'll always try to stay as physically far away as possible so they can't see my skin!
I feel that guys will immediately get grossed out when they see how I really look up close, and honestly I wouldn't blame them.

Sounds like you just have mild acne. Try washing your face with a hydrogen peroxide acne-fighting wash twice a day, afterward rubbing an acne-fighting astringent over your face with a cotton ball/pad. I've heard translucent powder can really help control oily-looking skin. I also suggest using a BB cream, I love Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB cream, it's a very sheer application (really it just gives your skin a glow) that can help keep your skin moisturized (which actually helps keep your skin from getting so oily) and they've even come out with one that contains salicylic acid which fights acne (if you use that though then use a salicylic acid acne wash and astringent as well, though, because combing hydrogen peroxide and salicylic acid could end up being terribly drying for your skin).0
