Guys, would you date a pretty girl with lots of acne on her face?

Well people do tell me that am pretty (both guys and girls) ..well I also know that I am. At times I get insecure that a guy won't date or like me because i have a lot of acne on my my face. I have tried out a couple products to improve on my skin but nothing seems to be working. My parents are looking for a dermatologist so he/she can check out my skin ..but it's going to take a long time. I sometimes don't like looking at people when talking to them because I always think that they are staring at my acne.

Other than the acne ,everything about me is OK ..I mean am in great shape(am slim) pretty even with the acne ..i think I do have a nice personality etc.

So guys, is a girl with acne a turn off to most of you?

  • Yes it's a turn off , I wouldn't date her
    Vote A
  • No it doesn't matter to me , I would date her.
    Vote B
  • Am neutral towards it but i would date the girl if we had things in common
    Vote C

  • I'll sound nasty, but I wouldn't. I've never had to suffer with spots, and acne does kind of make me nervous and somewhat jumpy - it's not disgusting to me, but it's certainly an oddity. Piercings weird me out enough for me not to want to kiss or touch somewhere there, so dating someone for having a face plastered with spots and likely red all over would be a method of keeping me away.

    On that note, I also hate freckles.

    I'm sure the girl is lovely. Maybe if I didn't have a girlfriend now I would say 'yeah, I'd date her if we had things in common' but I doubt it. I'm generally neutral to most things so long as they don't conflict with my opinions, such as me hating makeup, but most of the time problems people think they have wouldn't bother me.

    If your face was plastered, to the point where it had turned red and up close you can see many yellow spots, then I would be creeped out. If it was one or two, or small clusters here and there, I wouldn't have a problem.

    Regardless, I've voted A. It's how I feel.

    • Acne sucks we all know that, you feel ashamed of yourself, you can't look at people's eyes and ugh it's hard, I know. Retin-A (Tretinoin) WILL cure you. In two weeks, three, or even months, but it will trust me. It just depends on your skin. Retin-a is the best thing that has ever happened to my skin. Well my skin is 40% cured in the last two days in the FIRST WEEK! I started retin-A 0.05 the first time round in October last year, it cleared me up completely by December and by feb most my hyperpigmenation was gone!! I was so confident and happy with my clear skin. I have no insurance and bought it online w/out Rx to save money. The website I buy it from is :)

      they gave me a 10% discount code (which was 'SKIN' if anyone's interested). As far as I know this code can be used as many times as you want.
      You can find many reviews for Retin-A here:
      Hope this helps.

  • Could you post a picture? Acne could mean a few pimples... or pizza face... There's a wide spectrum of possibilities. Since you're a girl... it's very likely you're blowing things out of proportion. Extremely likely actually.

    • well in the pictures I have , I didn't have much acne back then (2 weeks back) face was kind of clear but not perfect ..but this week , I look so terrible ..i don't want to be in public. I have pics on my profile but I asked anon for a reason. I could just add you.

    • go ahead and add me. I'll have a look and will message you.

  • For some reason, the best product for me was washing my face with cold water whenever I wash my hands. My face is clear almost all the time. Also, especially before I go sleep.

    Also, I have better things to care about. I wouldn't mind too much.

  • I would. I can always tell how pretty a girl is even if she has acne. And a lot of girls wear make up to hide their acne but the fact that you're not covering it up shows you're not afraid to be natural.

  • Depends on how much.

  • well thing is I have had acne too so i can understand if any girl has it in fact it wouldn't bother me but i would try to help her cope with it... acne really does stuff to one's confidence XD

  • I have a bit of achne on my face too but I still get told I'm pretty all the timee.

    I wear lots of cover

    Just put on cover up. Blend it in with your skin so there's no red marks and stuff.

    The bumps will still show but that's okay as long as there's like no redmarkss because if its blended in, you feel a little better about your achne ALSO its less noticable(::

    • I agree, I do this alot! It gives me so much more confidence. I mean, even if you can still see a few of them, just knowing that mostly they're covered up helps me. It makes me feel like my friends are looking AT me - not studying me :) And yes you CAN still be pretty with of my friends has severe acne and she's really pretty. Just remember, that they should like you for you, not for your looks :)

  • This is what has gotten my acne off , washing my face with sugar and my acne soap. I don't know maybe it might help you.

  • there's no such thing as a pretty girl with acne. by definition acne makes you ugly
