In Topic: Guys With Acne Can Be Very Sexy!

13 August 2014 - 12:19 PM

lol Well this is definitely an inspiring post...just the idea that a beautiful girl like yourself would be interested in a guy that suffers from acne/scars is really awesome.

 

Still tho, acne/scars make me feel very unattractive at times. I think that's how it is with most other guys too

It's been too long since I last checked in! Skin is doing really good, still using the Regimen only nightly...I still get a pimple or two but they heal quickly and it's incredibly easy to manage compared to how my skin used to be. Otherwise life is good, work is steady, have made lots of new friends, looking to get a new phone here pretty soon. Still no girlfriend but that's a work in progress...it's mostly due to my shyness because of old emotional scars from acne, but I'm not too worried about it.

 

Wishing everyone here good days to come skin-wise and in life too! 


In Topic: Blunt Dating Advice For People With Acne

I think confidence is a misused, perhaps overused, word. I agree with the sentiment that confidence is key, but, despite people constantly repeating the mantra that 'confidence is not the same as arrogance/cockiness', in reality few can actually tell the difference - especially when it comes to dating. Arrogant men (and to a lesser extent women) do very well indeed when it comes to attracting the opposite sex.

 

In my view, it is better to aim for inner peace. I haven't found 'inner peace' as such but in those fleeting moments when I feel peaceful and content with myself and the world it is far easier to feel positivity, creativity, warmth and kindness. When I strive for 'confidence' it too often feels like an act, an act that conforms to society's ideal of an 'alpha' male: selfishness, dominance, control, promiscuity, etc. are not qualities I admire and wish to ape.

 

I agree 100% with Jamie's post here. Based purely on life experience (my own personal life experience) this rings especially true. It's so easy to tell someone "be confident" like it's a switch you're capable of toggling in your head whenever you desire. It's not. You'll notice in this modern day society that an arrogant male who is rude as hell has no problem at all getting a girlfriend. I will never be that person. I don't WANT to be that person. I'm not willing to change myself and betray my personality just because that's what some girls find attractive. Do I want a relationship? Absolutely. Am I going to put on an act and be an asshole to obtain that relationship? Nah. I'll pass.

 

I'll be honest when I say that I hate modern dating. Everything about it seems flawed to me. We live in an image obsessed world where some of the most negative personality traits are considered "hot" or "sexy."

 

I have no desire to be a douche bag "alpha male" no matter how sexy or attractive that persona is. It's not me...and even if it means I'll be single for eternity, I really don't give a shit.

Focus on other aspects of your life that you're passionate about. Rather that be education, hobbies, working out, entertainment...whatever you're into. Build a life for yourself that you really enjoy even without female companionship. I'll admit that even though I don't get much more active acne since being on the Regimen, I still have scarring and consider myself unattractive as a result of that. 

 

I'll be 100% honest too and say that I hate the way modern dating is set up. Guys are expected to initiate with girls, run the risk of getting rejected, do all the chasing and putting yourself out there, etc etc. Having had experience with most dating sites I think they're pretty much a joke, barely ever get any kind of responses on there if you're a male. Real life is a better option, but even then almost all cute/interesting girls that I meet have boyfriends already and the only girls that find me attractive are the ones that I don't find attractive.

 

The whole thing is just frustrating as hell so I tend to just not even worry about it much these days...just focus on bettering myself and enjoying my life for me.

Hey nice to read an update smile.png I am going to do that as soon as I am done writing this lol. I have no clue how long it has been since I have updated let alone been on this site. School has completely controlled my life this last semester, but thankfully that is passed me!

 

And regards to your question about that winter months ~ My skin does better in the winter than the summer. The humidity is not nice to my skin. I have to use so so much BP to stay 90 percent clear but it get better in the winter for me. My skin is weird ~

 

So how much BP are you currently utilizing for your skin? How has it changed since you first began the regimen?

 

I'm so late getting back to you on this, sorry!! Life has been so wild lately...seems like I never have enough time to jump online anymore. I'm still using BP only nightly and I use a full finger's worth....I've found this is enough to keep my skin under control. I think if anything the only change I've seen is my skin has slowly but surely adjusted to the BP....not much redness or flakiness anymore. My skin does have a slight tanning effect though, but I like how it looks honestly...kinda just seems like I have a decent tan, lol.

 

Figured I'd give you guys a quick picture update...got a new webcam recently.

I hope everyone is doing well...and if anyone ever needs to talk about The Regimen and has any questions about my experience, my inbox is always open...or feel free to hit me up in this thread! It's been one hell of a ride for me...but definitely a positive one on the long run.
