In Topic: Advice For Guys

Yesterday, 04:37 AM

Bro, this is actually the best read on this forums I've ever seen. Now, looking back at high school (just a few months ago, just started college), I've missed out on ALOT of experiences with girls and events I could've gone to. I've started becoming more confident with girls, starting small talk and just making friends with them in general. It's gotten easier and guess what? My acne is actually getting better. I'm guessing this is because I'm stressing less and I'm getting the courage to talk to people. I'm not really anti-social, I could easily talk to somebody if they come up to me first, but now I can go up to people asking for help or just talking to them for random reasons. This is helping me so much and I agree with your wall of text (which I enjoy alot).

 

Guys and girls, live out your life, forget acne. You WILL be MISSING lots of opportunities in life that you won't be able to do once you're older. You're young! LIVE YOUR LIFE! Trust me, people can look past the fact that you have pimples, like OP said above, just take care of yourself. Dress nice, go out more, experience different things, succeed in life, etc! Also, go to a dermatologist to just get checkups on your skin to see how you can improve, ASK QUESTIONS. Don't be shy accepting everything they offer, ask questions or you'll be confused as to what to do. Luckily for me I got a new dermatologist that is outgoing and he's made me very sociable, we talk about everything! You can do this with anybody, just open up! Don't be scared, be confident! And if you're in college, this is especially the time where you should be living life to the fullest! I live in NYC so being sociable can get me different experiences, so don't be scared to talk to people! It can get you far!

 

Thats what I'm talking about my dude, you remind me of a young me. Go kill it and don't end up like the two people above me lol 

How cute, you think I had a choice in the matterrolleyes.gif

It's all a bunch of bullshit. The who gives a fuck attitude had zero influence for me.

<p>My friend sent a text and it said &quot;acne&quot; instead of &quot;can&quot; in a sentence. He then sent another text saying &quot;stupid auto correct.&quot;&nbsp;</p>
<p>Even though I know for a fact that it was auto correct, it didn't stop me from obsessing for about an hour of whether or not he was making fun of my acne. Two decades of having people blatantly make fun of and insult me because of my acne has made me so paranoid that I now think some people are making fun of me when they're not.</p>

 

Get over it.

If she really has a paranoid personality disorder, then it is absolutely useless to say stuff like that. You don't get over some personality disorders. They are part of who you are.

Women do prefer nice guys! Now maybe when they are very young its different but when they hit later 20's and 30's all that crap goes out the window! All my single women friends just want a nice guy that will treat them right and be a good husband, father etc. Looks fade so you better have something else to back it up down the road anyway.

 


Women only want nice beta male idiots once they've slept with all of the exciting men during the years they are good looking. Nice guys pay full price for a used car.

I agree with this, except I would replace "beta male idiot" with "not-so-exciting-and-good-looking-in-girls-eyes male".

In my experience dating and having acne has been more challenging than my Linear Algebra class (which is ridiculously grueling). Feeling insecure is unattractive to men. And I agree that confidence is so significant when dating. Although in my case I suffer terrible anxiety and having acne makes it more severe.

What has worked for me is being honest towards whomever I am seeing about my insecurities towards my blemishes. I don't need to tell the universe that I'm insecure. Everyone has insecurities whether it is pimples, feeling insignificant, being broke, lacking sexual experience or being unintelligent. People have problems. Unfortunately, some of our "bumps in the road" are literally visible on our face. And to be honest all of those insecurities I listed above, I deal with every day.

Fear keeps us back from being the best we can be. 

Hey, I like you :)

You can insecure if you want to. I don't mind :)
