Hey Ladies, I'm self conscious about body scars, how to deal with them especially around girls?


Ok so I'm 23 and I have body scars, slashes and 2 bullet wounds. Long story short I served in the army, (Not US army) thats the explanation for the scars.

Anyways I live in the US currently. I have body scars on my front and back. (I don't wanna post a picture of my actual body for personal reasons, but I found 2 that are very alike to my body)

This one is pretty much like me, although I have a few more slashes. My body type is pretty much like this one, I'm lean and have some muscle tone. I'm 5'5.

My back is pretty much identical to this one. I have many slashes on my back.


I get self cautious in places like if I'm in a pool I always wear a shirt. Dating is difficult because I always feel girl is going to think my body is ugly.

Sometimes I even feel scared to show a girl my body and this is affecting my confidence. I'm confident about my looks its only my body I'm not confident about. I was especially affected because this one girl I was with acted really shocked when she saw my scars and she always just stared at them so in my mind I thought she didn't like them or something. She was very understanding about why I had them but I always felt she found it bad looking. (We aren't together anymore by the way)

Girls how would feel about scars like these. Would it freak you out or gross you out? What should I do?

  • If my boyfriend had those, I'd think he went through a lot and that he's a strong guy. I would feel proud and totally not disgusted at all. Also, a bit of confidence attracts girls. Not too much though! I know it sounds hard to accept yourself like you are but trust me if you're confident enough, I'm sure the girls won't care even a bit!

  • Don't feel so worried about it, a lot of girls like boys about their personalities not their appearances. Body scars aren't necessarily a bad thing

  • I wouldn't mind but I think I would be surprised if I didn't know that you had them before suddenly seeing them.
