In Topic: Blunt Dating Advice For People With Acne

Confidence generally comes through with or without acne (within reasonable tolerances.) Many popular kids in my high school, for example, had bad acne. Many jocks on the football and rugby teams had it. They were still alpha-dicks, they still threw half-eaten apples at unsuspecting 9th graders during lunch period. They still got cream-of-the-crop pussy.

 

This is especially true for guys: if you give the impression that you're the kind of guy girls want, then GIRLS WILL RUN TO YOU regardless of whether you're spotty or not. Granted, you do have to act like a bit of a dick. So you have a choice: be true to your WoW geek roots and sulk in sadness every Friday night with lotion all over your hands, or become the very antithesis of a decent human being and get all the girls. lol. It's comically simple.

 

I'm just pissed that it took me 4 years of HS and another 4 years of engineering school to figure this shit out. I'm mostly clear now, but I could have had so much more fun even when I wasn't! 

 

Oh, and another thing: PICK AN ARTSY MAJOR IN UNIVERSITY (if you're a guy.) Pick computer science or engineering if you're a girl; those majors are a sausage fest with tons of thirsty and socially awkward guys. Telling it like it is.. don't hate 

This only has validity provided you have the height, facial aesthetics, and low juvenile hairline to pull it off

 

(I can see in your profile pic that you're blessed with dark hair and a low juvenile hairline in addition to olive skin)

 

You wont see a guy with a long face, rosacea , a big/broad forehead and male pattern baldness with a cute girl. 

 

It's just like how most "jocks" have a naturally robust frame, tall, with broad shoulders.

C'mon guys the shy/meek good looking guy will always win a 21 year old girl's heart over far more easily than an "alpha" tryhard guy with a big forehead/acne rosacea and receded hairline. 

 

Looks matter.

I really hope we don't start a jerks vs. nice guys debate. For what it's worth, none of the guys I know that are in commited relationships were ever jerks. They were normal, sociable, and emotionally healthy dudes.

 

Come to think of it, I actually haven't met any "alpha-male jerks" in my life before, nor any women who mindlessly fell for those types of guys. Personally I think it's a bit of an imaginary problem (Oh no! The jerks are taking all the women that I wouldn't even have bothered to meet anyway!)

 

About the whole "people treat you worse with acne" thing, you're not wrong. But why stop there? People can treat you worse for being poor, short, ugly, etc etc... You've brought up lookism. What about heightism, or sexism, or racism? People will judge. It's a fact of life. The onus is on you to teach them to treat you with respect, and not to play into their prejudice by confirming what they originally thought about you.

 

Yes ugly confident guys are creepy or tryhards.

 

You cant go wrong being good looking. Tall, clear skin, compact midface, and a low dark brown/black norwood 0 hairline.

I have a similar problem. It seems to get worse as my skin gets oilier. The worse area is the skin beside the nostrils. Would love to find some concrete cures.

Yes, it seems apparent she was scared to reject me when I asked her out to my poor skin quality/redness/scarring/moles. Pretty much everyone else I know has clear skin. It's a shallow world but wtf can i do about it.

I am still motivated to work hard but I wouldn't talk to anyone for anything other than business/networking purposes.
