I'm 27 and since I was about 24 started to get wrinkles around my eyes and they're really not that subtle anymore. Its brings my confidence way down and I think about it all the time. I'm a fairly good looking guy but I worry that as these become more and more noticeable girls won't be at all interested. I barely ever see anyone my age with the same problem which kind of says to me that I must stick out really badly. Do you think I'm massively over reacting?
Looks aren't everything. An example- I met this guy not that long ago and I wasn't sure I liked his looks. I felt comfortable around him and everything though. And I felt that I wanted to get to know him. As I started to get to know him things changed a little, looks-wise. I don't see the same person I met awhile ago. And obviously his looks haven't changed. I just don't see what I saw before. I actually see him as cute now. I've got to know him and he's a great guy. I don't care how he looks, it wouldn't change how I feel. It's what's inside that matters. If a girl can't see who you are and only what's on the outside, she's not the right girl for you! Don't worry!
I'm 26 and am also getting a few lines underneath my eyes. I don't really care for them either, but they're from smiling :o) Everyone ages different and we'll all get them eventually. I doubt you stand out because of it, that's just your insecurity making you feel like everyone will notice. I bet they even look nice on you, distinguishing! No worries friend, sounds like your a good lookin dude, and a couple wrinkles won't change that. Also, men tend to age better than women too. ;o) I can say without a doubt that this will not make girls any less apt to be attracted to you.
I have this psych teacher, who I would just f*** endlessly if I could. No really. I would just pounce him. When he smiles, he has that grin and it brings out wrinkles around his eyes. You would NOT believe how UNBELIEVABLY hot I find it. No, really. I'm dead serious. I think without his wrinkles, his smile wouldn't be the same. It just gives it that smirk a flirty edge.
So yeah. Own your wrinkles. I bet they're f***ing hot.
oh you're right that any skin issues wrinkles or acne all affects our confidence level. You can use the coconut oil to massage it on your wrinkles. this helps get rid of the aging signs. drink lots of water; this will hydrate your skin prevent it from drying thereby make it wrinkle-free.
I googled images of Shaun White, and couldn't tell he had wrinkles...(unless the photos were 'shopped)?
I wouldn't worry about it. Odds are, people don't even notice, and if they do, it's not a big deal. I have a good many guy friends that are in their mid-twenties who are balding or have grey hair, and it doesn't bother me one bit...they're all still good-looking to me!
I think that when you have an insecurity, you tend to see it *far* worse than anyone else would. You're your own biggest critic they say, and it's true.
Honestly, some wrinkles wouldn't bother me if you're attractive otherwise. I would even think they're cute if they're visible just when you smile or laugh & it goes to your eyes. But I would suggest taking very good care of your skin from here on out. That means drinking plenty of water, using sunscreen everyday & checking into some anti-aging/wrinkle creams & serums at department stores if you don't want the wrinkles to get deeper & deeper.
Start now by putting moisturizer on everyday if you a really worried about it. I don't think it is as bad as you say it is but moisturizing will at least prolong the aging process. Also take Vitamin E everyday as it helps the collagen.
Check out Ponds Rejuveness.
Do the Jack LaLanne face exercise series on Youtube. There are 30 of them, do 1 a day, every day. Then keep it up, just as you would with any exercise program.
Oh man, you are over reacting! Genuine girls see past this, if they are bothered by a few wrinkles they are as shallow as a puddle and not worth it. Just be yourself, the right girls will like you no matter what. Good luck :)
