Do Girls Care About Acne? Tips For Guys With Acne

113 posts in this topic

Honestly, when I look at a guy, I look at how hot he is, acne doesn't make you and less hot, it wouldn't change my outlook on you as a person. Tbh I don't think girls care

As a Girl with acne , I honesty wouldn't care if a guy had acne , In actual fact it would make me feel like they knew what I was going through and we could both help each other out!

That is completely okay, but unfortunately you are an exception.

I been on two dates this month and the women didn't really notice my acne. I was too busy making conversation and making sure they had a good evening. However it really does come down to the woman, you have to accept that some woman may have a preference for perfection whilst some will not - no big deal!

When I look to date a woman I wouldn't mind if she had acne, it doesn't effect my selection criteria and you have to believe that there is another woman out there with that exact same mentality otherwise you're always going to be destined to fail behind your own insecurities.

I can't speak for other girls, but as a girl who not only had light cystic acne, but currently has some pretty bad chest and back stuff...sadly yes I do. I'm being completely honest, but I would probably notice your acne first before anything else, HOWEVER unless it's really bad (sorry guys!) I would not rule you out, i'd almost always give you a chance and If I came to like you although I probably would still be a bit conscious of it, I would get over it and pursue a relationship with you. On the other hand if I were already good friends with someone who developed very bad acne, and he asked me out I would say yes. But it would probably be very hard to go out with a complete stranger who I did not already kinda "like" that had severe acne.. I'm so shallow :(

As I've struggled with acne from age 17 (22 now) would never judge a girl that has it, as everyone says, it's the first thing us acne sufferers notice, is others skin, not because we are shallow or anything just because i suppose we are that obsessed with our own and can't help but notice others skin. That being said when i see people with clear skin and able to drink & eat anything they want that infuriates me, makes me so angry, but girls that i notice that have acne, i always think i wonder if they are the same as me (i'm a guy) but i mean like i wonder if they have felt the feelings this disease brings and the hopelessness, to be completely honest though i would rather have a girlfriend with acne because it means if we both have it we can talk openly about it without being grossed out which could happen if boyfriend/girlfriend is clear and the other isn't because they don't understand how it is. I am also more likely to be supportive if i see a girl with acne because i know what this disease does mentally and will always try to help others get out of or avoid feeling so low.

If you google "severe acne images" you'll probably find some truly horrifying pictures of deformed faces. But these are really serious and rare cases, we don't usually see people looking like this on the streets. When someone's acne looks more like a serious illness than just a cosmetic problem, I'll probably wouldn't be attracted to this person (if someone with whom I'm already in a relationship would develop a deforming illness, that's a whole different story, because when you love someone, you love them no matter what happens to their body). But I've never met anyone whose acne was truly disgusting. When people on this website share pics of their acne, I don't find it ugly at all. Actually, I find many of those people pretty attractive, in spite of their acne.

So when a guy has acne, even severe, I don't care at all. I notice it because I'm pretty concious about my own skin but I don't care. I used to have perfectly clear skin a year ago and in that time I didn't even notice other people's skin, even if it was severe. I just couldn't think about skin as something problematic. It was like any other organ for me. Really. So clear-faced girls notice acne even less than those with acne problems.

Hey I have a question for mainly the girls, you since my main fear in rejection as to why I don't talk to girls is because well my acne and who I am. Even though in a quiz I got Kate Upton for my celebrity girlfriend and some would say she doesn't look good without make up but I would still go for her and some might say the same about  Scarlett Johansson without make up but anyway would anyone date me with my cystic acne however I don't think my WIN_20160126_175040.thumb.JPG.1a9844d28dcrush Elizabeth Olsen would date me, and my second reason for being shy which is who I am. A film loving person, who wants to be a film critic, has a favorite superhero of Spider-Man & Superman, reads comics, and has a big collection of DVDS and Blurays. I honestly believe that I'm not interesting to a girl.
Would a girl have a problem with someone like me? 
Bonus) would any of you girls date me?scarlett-johansson-kate-winslet-without-rs_634x1024-141218083437-634.Kate-Upton-56a815ef2b5bb_ElizabethOlsen.jpg.b2b4e8a

My fellow friend, it come's down to how you "hold" yourself or present yourself if you may.  The style or stature at which you maintain and assert along with manners is what speaks more words than a superficial, semi-permeable, collectively layered keratinocytes, melanocytes, and lastly your Merkel and Langerhan cells.

And they don't do a whole lot.  I'm rather terrible in social situations in general and having good looks doesn't get me all that much except someone who just wants a pretty face for a night.  I have some friends that look like 1/2 primate, 1/2 neanderthal yet they always pull the ladies and somehow end up with these gorgeous girls as there significant other.  All of that came down to their style or "swag".

Good personality, optimistic and open attitude > socially inept guy with a head full of hair and great skin

You just have to survive through this stressful time in life and persevere.  It'll make you a stronger person and I'd dare say you're probably psychologically more developed and sturdy than I am!  I freak out when any attention is on me if it's more than 2-3 people.  Only exception is public speaking and that's just from training.


Observe.

All girls are different and like different things in a guy. Personally acne on a guy wouldnt bother me at all - but i suppose thats because i have acne. Also, i like shy, some might say "nerdy" types. Other women go for muscular football types. You know what i mean !?  People are all different, have different interests etc. and thats ok. 

 If you are just trying to date girls that look like celebrities you might have a problem :) Maybe you need to talk to some "regular" girls. It might surprise you to know that alot of women have insecurities about their appearance. Go for someone who isnt "perfect" - maybe who has acne, or is a bit overweight, or is shy etc etc... Be interested in them as a person and treat them with kindness and respect. 
Dont wait around hoping Scarlet Johansson might walk through your door :)

Don't rule out the possibility of venturing into the mature realm.  I had a obsession from 18-20 with hooking up with women only 30+.  I developed more self esteem with them than anyone else.  I guess I'd be considered a party pooper as I prefer more maturity over prepubescent shenanigans,  I guess being a habitual juvenile menace to society probably burned that mischievous desire out and institutionalization doesn't help with social development.

Also, older women take you on dates and show you off to their friends.  It helped me get a sense of conceded ideological views of myself, but I'm still sitting in the awkward stage of social interaction.  Just don't really tell your mom as it was weird when I tried to explain the reasoning behind an 18 year old being involved with a 43 year old banging mom and your mom is only 50.
