#3252973 Would You Join A Dating Website For People With Acne Scars/acne?

Posted by ensi on 07 June 2012 - 06:36 AM

Just a thought - if an acne related dating site were to exist - or for any of those dating sites for specific characteristics - would users need to prove their acne or whatever before their registration is allowed?



I think people will sooner lie about NOT having acne/scars rather than lie about HAVING it. I don't think anyone would join a website like that if they didn't have a problem like this.


And TakeToTheSkies I agree that you should love yourself completely and accept fully before you are with someone else...in a hypothetical ideal world. We all have insecurities and if we were to wait before we accept ourselves fully we would all die alone. I don't think personally that I will ever fully accept my scarring, I do not mind breakouts anymore. It's nothing compared to scarring. And I know it would definitely be easier with someone who understands that struggle. And who says that it would have to be about "dragging each other down", it might be about support and mutual understanding, among other things of course. What is wrong with that?

I really think that it is highly unlikely that the existence of such a website would "send a wrong message" or exclude people with acne/scars. There are plenty of specific dating websites that are created for people to have a choice or to make their lives easier, I believe. There is a website for example for farmers only, for people who want to find a partner who loves cats or for those who look for somebody that looks similar to them (really) and I don't think it sends a general message that for example people should only date people who look like them. If you want to, you can but you don't have to.

I think there should be one. I know that there are some super confident people even with acne/scars who manage pretty fine in this respect but many of us do have problems with dating/confidence because of our condition. I would definitely feel more comfortable with someone who has the same issues with skin as I do. And don't tell me it's pathetic. I don't think so. People with psoriasis for example do have a dating website.
