Dating website for people with acne?

7 posts in this topic

I want to know if you guys know of any websites that target specifically people with acne. Would it be a good idea? I have acne and scars so I was just wondering.

I'm not wailing on your idea, I think there would be people who'd appreciate it, but I wouldn't want to join a dating site that focuses on my skin problems. I don't want my acne to be the very first thing people acknowledge about me, I think we're all worth so much more than that.

I know this site is for people with acne and other skin issues but I guess it's more for trying to find a solution together. Although there have been a few people who have found love here unexpectedly. :D

I don't think i would want to either. People with acne can find love just as easily as people without acne. If someone judges you on your acne you shouldn't go out with them anyway!

I understand the thinking behind it, but it would mean that you're advertising yourself as an acne sufferer and inavertently saying that it's one of the main things about you, or like it isn't "normal" or something, which isn't the way to go.

If you were to join one of the site's that are already out there, even if you had pictures which might show acne, you wouldn't actually mention it your profile because you'd have other things to talk about. If people look at the pictures and make a snap judgment, that's their problem. But if you've worked on the profile and sound like someone worth knowing, the right kind of people will eventually read that and take the time to find out more.

I can see where you're coming from though. I mean, the one thing which brings us all together here before we actually start to get to know each other better is our issue with acne, so there is a huge degree of understanding there. I suppose you would experience the same degree of understanding on an equivilant dating site, so I can see why you'd have the idea, but the same kind of people with the same degree of kindness and understanding are out there. The trick is finding them.

I don't like the idea because it's just telling people with and without acne that it's not normal and basically saying you can't get with a "normal" person.


Must. Not. Pick!

This.

Also, as someone who found the love of her life on this website... I understand where you are coming from OP, but I don't think it would work. And I almost feel it isn't needed considering how many relationships I know of that have started here. haha.

No. The big moments are gonna come. You can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are."

My boyfriend has acne and although his is not as bad as mine, it certainly makes me more comfortable with him. So I can see where your coming from but I think a dating site solely for acne sufferers would make me feel a little segregated haha
