I've been struggling for a while. I obsess over my flaws including my acne, arms, stomach, and freckles. It gets in the way of my life to think my flaws will make me unattractive even if a majority of myself is attractive. I dont think I'm ugly at all but I stress over my physical flaws constantly and I am about to get help because its that bad. If you found out the guy/girl you liked has body dismorphic disorder would this turn you away or would it not be a big deal. I want to accept myself so badly but it's hard and I'm just sick of being insecure.

I have been there before
Dated a girl who was sooo insecure and nothing I could do or say would change that
I would do it again... I have body dimorphic disorder I obsess over my thin wrists and ankles I am embarrassed by my calves and hate how my legs are skinny, I also have a knot on my head from getting punched... And it wil never go away...
I work hard on my flaws, try to get my legs bigger etc but I always see my flaws and feel I will never be good enough...
I suggest seeing a psychiatrist
I see one every week and it helps me with my anxiety issues and my self perception
I have become much more secure but I still hate seeing my wrists and ankles lol it sounds so crazy to write it out... To think I obsess over these things0
