Acne scars and dating.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here so sorry if my formatting is bad. I'm 22 years old and for the first time after a 6 year relationship I am wanting to start dating again. However, i have deep acne scars on both sides of my face that don't show up in photos unless under bad light. I have had 3 microdermabrasions so far that have helped the smaller scars a little and have 3 microneedling sessions paid for, with my first being next week. I have a date in a couple of weeks who doesn't know I have acne scars. I don't want to bring it up just yet in case it gives a bad impression. Do our scars really look 100x worse to us than they do to others? I have been told my scars aren't that bad, however I want to die whenever I see them in bad light. Should we tell our dates about our imperfections before we meet? Sorry for the long post, but hope you guys can help me out a little.

if people who know you, say your scars are not that bad,  trust them. 

don't focus on negative thoughts.

..but if you tell this person before you meet you have "X" problem (which might not exist) your pretty much letting your insecurities sabotage the date before it has even started.
