I am new to this forum and I have to say the amount of information here is simply amazing. I have been a long time "lurker" here, but I decided to finally join and contribute to this community.
Here is my background:
I have been living with acne since I was 19 (I am now 24) and finally got it under control, but unfortunately it left me with some scarring which I am doing my best now to fix with lasers and chemical peels. However I find it difficult to meet someone for serious relationship as I suffer from low self-esteem because of acne/scars and it would be somehow strange to have more skin care products or having chemicals peels/lasers done more often than my girlfriend. I have avoided going out much for past 5 years and decided to work on starting two internet businesses(aka working from home) with very good success. While being financially stable is important, I feel lonely as I have no one special to share my life with(travel, see new things...).
What I wanted to ask you guys/girls who suffer from low self-esteem, acne, scarring...how do you meet new people? How do You start dating again? I somehow feel it wouldnt be possible for me to start dating girls who have "good" skin and not feel bad/or think about my skin all the time.
There is a reason why there are so many "niche" dating sites for people who share similar problems, unfortunately there aren't any for people with acne, since we could understand each other the best
