Do guys mind stretch marks?

I have stretch marks on my stomach from rapid weight gain but I have now lost the weight. I have been with my current ldr boyfriend for a while now, we love each other and he's going to come over soon and we will be having sex. However I'm afraid he'll find my stretch marks ugly? They are not red or purple, they are now the color of my skin. I lost the weight before I met him but I don't know if guys hate stretch marks that are faded almost, on the he stomach. I have never been pregnant I was just very unhealthy until I took charge of my life.

  • Seriously? If he rejects you for some little skin imperfections, he need serious help, and you deserve better!!
    show me someone who is perfect?
    Everyone has issues, and most of the things that women I have been with, I never would have noticed, until they pointed it out!!
    Even then, I didn't care, because I liked HER!

  • No. In any circumstance where they are visible the guy won't care. I guarantee you we don't look that closely and your average guy is not looking for perfection. What you think of as flaws are the features he likes.

  • here's the thing people who date or get married because the other person is attractive they're relationships never last because like most things in life beauty comes and goes and if that's the most unattractive thing about you then you should be fine.

  • No, not at all for all you girls out there wondering if guy's care about stretch marks some guy's do, others don't. I'm one of the few who doesn't care don't feel bad about stretch marks.

  • I find them ugly. They're not attractive; that's for sure. Deal breaker, no, I don't think so. Not unless they're tremendously pronounced. I can't speak for the majority of guys or if your guy falls under this or that opinion. If they're skin colored then it's much less of a problem, in my opinion. But not an attractive thing.

    I'll say, in my opinion anyway, that it's less ugly than fatness. But that's just me. Who knows what your guy thinks. He probably won't mention anything, and it'll still go fine, most likely. In any case, everyone has things like that. Just ignore them. Only thing you should be focusing on is the moment. Chances are he's not going to slap you and call you an ugly pig or run away shrieking incoherrent blasphemies.

      Of course theyrw not attractive but you know I got them back when i was younger and I never took care of my body and I lost it all. Before I met him. Point is I'm. Not overweight anymore. But I have very feint skin colored stretch marks and there's only Like four or five either side of my belly button

  • Well don't bring attention directly too it but tell him you're nervous about what he thinks of your body he'll probably find it cute, only bring it up once and when you see the rise you give him you'll get your answer of what he thinks.

  • Stretch marks are part of your story, and you should be proud of how you managed to lose the weight that caused them in the first place. Honestly the only people who would be put off by it or make some comment about it are either self conscious or just not worth your time. If you are really bothered by them there are some products out there that help reduce their appearance. I personally have scars all over my back from acne and other things and I just have grown used to it. Sometimes people ask about it so I just tell them what it is and they're all good with it. Don't sweat it.

  • I have never heard a guy negatively comment on stretch marks. Some guys like them some guys don't care (maybe a few really don't) but the truth is if he likes you enough to date you sees you naked and then gives a shit about stretch marks I will be reeeeeally surprised.

  • I constantly tell my wife that i love every bit of her, and when she complains about the stretch marks, i say what stretch marks. Basically what i am getting at here, is generally the only one that cares about those is the person that has them, not the person that loves you. And surprise its mostly women that have issues with it, They shame other women because of it, and see it as some kind of flaw, Where in your cause, you should be stoked/ecstatic that you are living healthy and losing the weight, not focused on superficial inconsequential blemishes which i guarantee he will not care about.

  • he'll just be happy to see you naked for the first time and get some action. I wouldn't worry about it. If your concerned just make sure the lights are dim or you have candles going. Thats more romantic anyway.

  • I am so glad none of these guys care! They shouldn't and like they have said, if a guy is seeing you naked he is NOT looking at stretch marks and is very happy that he is having sex. I think in general people notice their flaws way more than anyone else. I have learned not to be too hard on myself because no one else will notice half the things I do. Also, I have never been overweight and I am in good shape and I have stretch marks and also cellulite. Both things are just a part of life.

  • I have them too, and while I used to be self conscious, I grew outta that fast when I realised:
    a) they're so common for both guys and girls
    b) they fade and there's stuff you can do about them
    c) any guy that cares about them is a dick :P
    But if you want to do something about them, talk to your pharmacist about products that they can recommend, but I know Bio Oil and Vitamin E cream can work.

  • My husband loves my stretch marks. They're from being pregnant with our 7 month old, and I lost the weight in 4 days literally by breastfeeding so I have a few. He adores them though. I like girls in the same way men do, an I don't mind them either. I'm sure he won't mind them, and if he reacts badly then he's a jerk.

  • I don't think so.
    I have some stretch marks on my inner thighs and like 2 on my tummy from gaining weight. (which have faded a lot though)
    I have a ton of tiny ones on my shoulders. I don't know how those got there. My shoulders are big though hahaah. Some tiny ones on my butt too.
    But my boyfriend doesn't mind at all. He loves my body.

  • They don't really mind them but as with anything if it's extreme then it would have to take some getting used to, or it might not ever be something they're able to get used to. If it's normal stretchmarks then you don't have anything to worry about.

      Very feint and only a few on my stomach. They're the color of my skin tbh

    • 2mo

      Oh well yeah you definitely have nothing to worry about. He probably won't even notice them.

  • I can't speak for all guys, some love 'em, some hate 'em, some don't care. Most guys I know don't sweat it. Why would they? Many men have them too. It's natural when your skin stretched from growth during puberty or weight gain/loss. Not to mention, if you're ever interested in marrying and/or having kids, it should be expected! We age, our body moves around a bit. It's a part of life, and a decent guy understands that. The fact that you got them from betting yourself shouldn't bother you, and should gain admiration from your partner, if anything.
