So I struggled with acne for a couple years, not afraid to admit because it has made me a stronger person. It has gotten better within the last 2 years and yes, I've done everything for it and own absolutely everything to treat it. It's hormones and genetics in my case. My makeup covers it pretty damn well which I'm thankful for, but obviously it's still a bit noticeable. (and no, the makeup is NOT the case for my acne in my case). It's weird because I still get approached by guys and such and it makes me feel weird because all I'm thinking is "do you NOT see my skin isn't so perfect o_O" lol. What's people's opinions on this? Thanks xoxo :)

You don't have perfect skin? Pfft. So? Few do. Nearly everyone's had acne. Nearly everyone has scars. Stretchmarks are also insanely common. This is pretty much fact. The fact that you still get approached should tell you something. It says that it's not as important as you seem to have thought it was.
Do they not see your imperfections? Oh, I'm pretty sure they do. At least some of them. But it probably doesn't matter. In other cases, I'm pretty sure some of these imperfections you mentioned are mostly just obvious to you, alone. After all, it's your skin. You're going to see it more often. You're going to spend more time in it. You're going to know how it feels, and know as close to the complete history as anyone else, so yeah, sure, of course, this kinda crap will obviously be more obvious to YOU.
I'll tell you this, though, I don't sweat the small stuff. You're actually quite beautiful, and I'm willing to bet on some level you know it. You seem to have a good shape about you, you have a pretty face, and you have a nice smile. I'm pretty sure your skin will not detract a guy like me. Clearly, it doesn't stop other guys. So as I've basically been saying, maybe it's not as high a standard as you thought. Don't feel weird. Be flattered.5
