I'm 16, still a virgin, and when I was like 12 I was chubby. Not like really fat or anything though. When I hit 12 I had a major growth spurt and I ended up loosing my chubbiness. So ever since then I've had stretch marks on my thighs, arms (only when I lift them), hips, lower back, and breasts. To make it worse I also have some acne on my back.
I'm beyond self conscious because of it but guys are always telling me I'm beautiful and stuff like that. I'm scared to become close to a guy or get in a serious relationship because I don't know what he would think of it if he saw them.. most of the guys where I live have been having sex and everything since they were 12 which doesn't really help.
Should I try to forget about it or something? Or just wait for a while to see if they go away..
I've been hurt by guys so many times and I want to prevent that from happening if at all possible :P and if that means staying away from guys so I don't freak them out with my stretch marks, I'm for it.
And I'm not really sure if I put this in the right category, but oh well.

Majority of girls have stretch marks and a lot of girls have acme as well but most guys don't even notice or care about it and the ones that do aren't worth it and shouldn't even get the chance to be that close to you to see those things. I don't think you should worry about them because they're all common things. It may seem like its going to be a big deal to the guys you become intimate with but trust me it doesn't. If they're things that still bother you then you can use special lotion that gets rid of the stretch marks or at least diminishes them some. As for the acme, I'm sure that there's some acme treatments that can help treat it.2
