On a positive note, two of my lady friends were talking about this guy with acne as bad as mine (severe) and they were talking about how he is so cute and all that good stuff. They didn't mention his acne even once. So I guess that there are people out there that look past the acne.

Yesterday I finally texted my friend and told her why I was so quite and what was going on in my life. It's weird for me to pour out my feelings to a female friend but it was SO worth it. She totally heard my issue and helped me out. One part of me feels embarrassed but another part of my feels so glad and happy.

#3353258 Did Anyone Out There Get A Bit Scared Before Starting Accutane?

I was scared and I still am scared of the initial break out but my acne has ruined my life to the point where any side effect seems like a small price to pay.

I just texted this girl I have a crush on about my entrie acne situation and my emotions. She hasn't replied and I'm nervous but if she doesn't care about my feelings than she's not worth calling a Freind

Not trying to spread the wrong ideas, but guys usually have to start the relationship if you know what I'm saying.

Girls can have guys approach them and get interested in them even if they have acne. Guys with acne on the other hand probably suffer from confidence issues and aren't that confident while approaching girls.

Just my two cents though..

Hey, after you replied to mine i was looking through yours and found this, this is exactly how i have been feeling, are you on the regimen? I think for me it is helping a bit so im going to keep going on it aswell as the accutane, hopefully within a couple of months we will both have our normal lives back, if you need to talk about it at all message me, I think your in america? Im in australia, but i will reply to messages asap as the internert is my new life seeming i dont want to leave the house haha anyway hope this helped cya 

Thanks for reaching out man, and I've been finding myself more and more on this forum rather than outside the house as well. Our journey's are slightly similar but hopefully we both reach our goals of living a normal life. I'll def. message you if anything is up man, you can also hmu.


Hey, just wanted to give a girls point of view on this....


When I was 15 I hated how much acne ruined my life and it pretty much did, I rarely went out, I didn't like meeting new people it was just horrible and dull. I went to an all girls school so I can't imagine what it's like but let me tell you that whilst you're worrying about your skin, the girl you like is 100% worrying about her insecurities. Trust me, whenever I used to be around someone I liked it was like all I could think was acne, acne, acne! But guess what - she isn't thinking about that she is probably wondering why you won't look her in the eyes and would you like her more if she was skinnier/ prettier/ blond etc.


So you've just got to breathe, and venting is good too - get it off your chest but try and do something about it. You'll never get back the years you lose to acne so you may as well enjoy your life and quite frankly if your friends or crush can't see past spots then they aren't worth having in your life.


Ok pep talk done... hope that accutane works for you like it has for so many others smile.png



I would also like to give a girl's point of view on this.


At your age, everyone expects everyone else to have at least some acne. And because of this, we usually look past it. People will not define you by your acne, I promise. If girls are calling you cute..then you are, even with acne! Trust me, it takes a lot for girls to compliment a guy, so if your crush called you cute, she still thinks it. Acne does not change the fact that you are a good looking person. I wish someone had told me that in high school at your age (I'm 22 now). People can still see your face through your acne. They still see your facial features, your smile, your eyes. They can still enjoy your personality and your laugh.
I wish you the best on Accutane. I've never been on it, but I really hope it works for you. It's no fun to go through high school believing that you're not as good as you could be. If Accutane doesn't work, you need to try to convince yourself that you are still awesome, acne or not. You deserve to have a great high school experience-- and only you can make that happen. I know your acne hurts, but people just see what's on your face, they can't feel it. It's much more severe in your head than what they can perceive. Good luck! biggrin.png


Thanks guys, I really appreciate all the feedback that you guys (Girls rather) have given me. It really does help and their is only 19 more days left of school so maybe next year I have a chance to get my crush back? If she gets someone else by than, then it's just my lose but I won't lose hope  I'll try to take small steps to gaining the confidence I once had back. Thanks alot, it means ALOT to me. This is the only place I've opened up and received help.
