Your advice is flawed. Going to a therapist doesn't guarantee that your problems will be solved.


In Topic: Moderate Acne But It's Killing Me

It's always challenging dating someone with perfect, photoshopped looking skin.. I know. That's been all of my boyfriends and my current husband. When my husband and I were first dating, I ALWAYS wore foundation, even to bed. It took me awhile to go without makeup and to talk openly about my skin struggles. Luckily, he suffered from acne in high school so he could relate to an extent. I think that was helpful. He, like many, just grew out of it (why not us???). But honestly, he really couldn't care less about my acne. Other boyfriends would point it out and make it clear that they noticed which made me feel so insecure. He on the other hand, acts like its so not even noticeable and acts like its crazy for me to worry about it or think it changes how attractive I am. That feels really good to hear from the person you love. If your guy is a decent, compassionate person, I'm sure he will be the same way.

I don't blame you for wanting to go on BC just to have some relief. I don't think anyone would judge you for that! And know that there are ways to lessen the severity of breakouts when you decide to quit. I was just an idiot and didn't do any research until it was too late and my skin sucked horribly. I could have weaned myself off BC slowly and taken estroblock (read so many great things about it everywhere) or saw palmetto to try to keep my hormones from going bananas. So mad at myself!

Ha, it's challenging just to get a social life and a relationship. I have problems with just getting people (and girls) to like me.

It's the questions isn't it? It's the people who feel they need to constantly comment on your skin. That's discrimination.

If he has a problem with how your skin looks like, then he is not your boyfriend.
