What do girls think when they see a guy has stretch marks?

I've lost 70 pounds in about 5 months to get down to 186 pounds this morning. But my stretch marks on my stomach are unsightly, even with my abs popping out above them. Will they really put a girl off if she sees me with my shirt off.

  • Just like some men don't like stretch marks on their women I'm sure some women won't like them, but saying that I really think a good percent of women would care a less. A lot of women have them due to hormones and weight gain and loss or some who have never had one in there llife will get um after having kids and they may NEVER go away. I would never ever be turned off of a guy who had stretch marks, no matter how many. I myself have quite a few! One of my ex's made it a point to tell me how incredible discusting my sides looked because of them, I felt horrible and tried everything in my power to get ride of them with no such luck, but then I figured uk what the next man I meet if he can handle that I have stretch marks, then he doesn't deserve a girl like me. There is A LOT more to a person than stupid stretch marks. Congrats on your weight loss and I'm sure there are plenty of girls who will have no problem with it and still be extemely attracted to you hun!

  • its kind of a turn off but its not a deal breaker. Guys usually have stretch marks when they are overweight and even then its harder for a man to get stretch marks than woman so it makes me think that the guy didn't take care of his body in the past. Also I see very muscular guys with stretch marks it makes me think they have hit the gym a lot. It's just when you get bigger than your skin can take (fat or strong) but don't be afraid, many guys have stretch marks. And congratulations in your weight loss.

  • I don't mind at all, and most girls will have a few of there own either on there breasts, hips thighs. Anywhere that there has been rapid growth and if they don't have them now they will some day. I wouldn't think to much of it, its perfectly normal.

  • Well, my boyfriend has stretch marks, and they're pretty bad, but I don't mid... I don't love him any less. They're not a big deal. It shouldn't be a deal breaker, but it could turn some girls off. Make sure you get to know the girl first so she'll know how much of a good guy you are. Impress her first, so she'll realize the stretch marks are nothing to lose you over.

    You should put some deep hydrating lotion on them every day, and that should help a lot.(:

  • The last guy I dated had them, and I actually thought they were cute. He was in good shape but had them. I loved them SOOO much! It made him unique to me.

  • I honestly couldn't care less if a guy had stretch marks or not. I'm a girl, I have them everywhere, and most girls feel self conscious about something so they should sympathise. You've lost weight and that's a great thing. Its something that, unfortunately, members of the stretch mark club have to deal with. I'm not saying 'get over it' but I am saying don't let it get you down.

    My feelings towards someone would not be altered by physical imperfections like that, whatsoever.

  • dang sweet. Congrats on the shrinkage. Kudos. I think some girls may mind your stretch marks but others may not. Since girls are prone to them (it seems) I figure we won't care.

  • I think I they're fine. Girls get them too. I have them and so does my fiance. Girls get them on there boobs, I have them on my butt lol, I got them all over my legs real bad when I was younger so I still have light marks. I lost some weight but I still have the light marks. They're fine, its not a big deal. If you have issues with them though they're lotions you can buy to help.

  • I'm there with you bro. After my divorce I hit diet and exercise HARD. Lost 120 pounds in 7 months. I'm 6'3 175 I'm really muscular and I have stretch marks. They will eventually fade. Keep moisturized and keep hydrated. I've been with tons of girls. None of them cared or even noticed. You busted your ass to lose that weight. You look great. Just own it. Girls like confidence. And you should have lots of it. The hell with your stretch marks dude. Keep up the great work!

  • I'm in the same boat bro. No matter what anyone says it's something you have to deal with.

    There is the option to have microdermal abrasion surgery that would reduce the appearance but that's about it.
