True opinion: Are stretch marks a turn off?

I have some stretch marks on my body. I didn't have a baby or anything I just gained weight & wa la. I lost the weight & am back to a good size, but I have small stretch marks on my thighs & beast. Can a man find me attractive like this? Please be honest, I just want to know the truth, not have my ego stroked.

  • You bet we can. I'm not overweight and am actually very fit but I have small stretch marks on my hips from when I grew as a teenager. I think everybody has stretch marks somewhere so I wouldn't worry much. Also every woman I've seen naked has had stretch marks somewhere.

    • *First sentence I meant you bet we can be attracted to you.*

    • Thank you, you sound very accepting.

  • This question has been asked many times. One more time-----no, don't worry about them. I've never zipped up and left once after seeing the girl naked with a few stretch marks. As one girl said, he's going to be too happy being with you naked to even see the stretch marks.

    • Sorry if my asking was annoying because so many have asked before. I didn't see those question, I'm new. Thanks for your support though :)

    • No problem welcome to GAG.

  • No, they're not a turn off, and sure, men will still find you attractive 'like this'.

  • Do women prefer small penises? Chances are most women do not prefer it. Although men are probably more forgiving on the stretch mark issue than women are on penis size issue.

    Just like men who are short or have a small penis, you need to find someone who won't consider it a deal breaker.

    • What am I supposed to do, every time I go on date, say, Hi my name is Denise, & I have stretch marks, lol.

    • Well, if you're dealing with a short guy, you see what you're getting up front -- it's always on display like breasts. A guy with a small penis is in the same boat you are.. just have to get out there and let people see what you have. Welcome to the world of equality ;)

  • Just sleep with them sooner so they find out about the stretch marks then you can decide if it's a deal breaker. I suggest going on birth control.

    • Thank you for your honest

  • It's not a turn off. Most people have them somewhere. I think anyone that complains about it probably has never seen someone naked before.

    • Great, glad to know I'm not the only one that has them. When I developed them I freaked because I thought only pregnant women got stretch marks, & I was like, oh crap, I gotta hit the gym, lol.

    • Yeah, I got some on my arms, legs, and a couple on the side of my torso. I've never been pregnant or fat. I've had them since I hit puberty. Most people get them one way or another. They aren't really noticeable unless you're actually looking for them.

  • I doubt many men would care, but if you really dislike them / if they're making you very self concious, there are certain oils you can put into your bath or massage into your skin to mak them go away.

    • Do you here I could find these oils?

    • You can find them in pretty much every supermarket, but for more variety I'd go to somewhere that specialises in beauty products, etc.
