Would you date a girl with acne scars?

My only insecurity I have is my acne scars. I'm in college and find it difficult to get past the dating stage with a guy because I'm afraid he won't like me without makeup. I try to apply little makeup so that there isn't a major difference without. You can see some of my scarring even with makeup. I wouldn't want someone to be "deceived." I can't afford the medicine that my dermatologist has prescribed to get rid of them, so I have to live with it for now. Would you date a girl with acne scars? Is it too "gross" for you? Would you be upset that she has them after taking off makeup?

  • Whenever someone asks an offhand question like this people are bound to say a yes or a no. Fact is none of us (well for those without compulsive fixations) know how chemistry pans out.

    Ideally even if I (as an example) say no, I'm not someone that knows the future, even the immediate one.

    I had a fling with this girl when much younger & she had a lot of acne but the chemistry was so strong that we couldn't keep our hands off each other.

    Again I'd say it's an individual & situational thing

      If you put or treat yourself like a show piece on the mantle, you'll have to bear with the way you are handled or even the breakage. I say just go on with your life & life will find you

      That's so true. Beautifully worded by the way.

  • I had a similar issue. I have a massive birthmark on my stomach, which does look like scarring. When I used to get intimate with guys some would be put off. However, they were not the ones you want to date. I have met someone who does not mind and thinks ALL of me is beautiful, including the birth mark, we are now planning out wedding. I know its slightly different since the face is more visible than the stomach, but the same principle applies. Do not let anyone think you are not beautiful, as you are.
    Find a man who will love all of you, as my finance says, beauty comes from the inside and shines through people much more than visible looks. I am sure you will have no problem, stay strong X

      Thank you so much! You have no clue how much this message means to me.

    • 20d

      I am so glad it does.
      As stated, I have been in a similar position and it is the worst feeling ever when someone makes you feel ugly/inferior. However, it is they who are in the wrong and not, Never let anyone tell you that you are not beautiful. Beauty comes from being a kind person and you will find your soul mate, otherwise any guy who even thinks you are anything less than perfect is not worth anything. Society needs to learn to be more positive than negative.
      I try to help people to not go through what I went through and it means a lot to me as well that at least my message helped a little bit, stay strong beautiful lady :) x

  • Assuming I found her mind and personality attractive, acne scars would play no part in my evaluation of weather or not to date a woman.

  • I'm pretty sure every girl that I've dated had acne scars. It's such a minor thing that I rarely notice it.
    Oh, and someone has to say it: If he dumps or loses interest in you because of your acne scars, he probably wasn't worth your time.

  • Well, most people get them on their shoulders, so not really. It's like stretch marks, most people will have them. Don't feel upset that you've got them.

  • Unless your acne scars look like your face caught on fire and someone tried to put it out with an ice pick, it's not an issue with me. I've dated women with acne scars and never really noticed or cared.

  • It is not to gross, if it is to someone then he may be not the right guy, are you relly seeking a guy who only care about your facial appearance or a guy that will love your personality.
    The choice is yours, and sometime if your acnee is not to strong with age if your taking care of not taking drugs, not eating to much Junk then it will go out by itself.
    If your acnee is very severe like i have even at 31yrs, the product from the dermato may not work since for me, i have been taking for years and it averagely working since the virus is deep. My face look like a have heavy sunburn instead of acnee... I side effect of meds I'm taking so I think you should wait. Eat less acid food, Junk and sugar. For me it helped a little bit agains't the blooming in the past. I wish that you don't reach my age and still have to face that though...
    For wearing a lot of make up, it depend the kind of guy you want to be with, A , gamer, geek, nerd, a sporty, nature lover... Some like make up girl and some others like it less...
    Watch out if your pearcing them often if your unlucky enough to have white dot often, since sometime if you pierce them wrong they can turn in a beauty mole. A beauty mole is annoying to have on a face, i can tell you, even more if beard grow on it.

      I hate them so much. I feel that because I hate them so does everyone else. It'll reflect into hating me, but they aren't who I am as a person. I'm afraid people can't differentiate the two.

      People don't hate you because of your appearance they hate you because you let it get in the way of who you are.

  • Fuck yeah, as long as she's white, at least 5'6" tall, and not overweight.

    Acne scars are fine with me. I mean, Cammy from Street Fighter has a scar on her left cheek and she's still hot.

  • Don't fix the acne, but fix the cause that creates it!
    That's animal fat: cheese, milk, meat, butter, industrial bakery, etc 🍞
