My Advise: Date Someone Who Also Has Acne. Anyone Else Dating Someone With Acne ?

Guest

This is my advise to everyone with acne, no matter your gender or sexual orientation, date someone who also has acne. 

         My story is I'm a 45 year old lesbian woman in LA with terrible skin. Acne, acne scars, oily skin, the works. It was so hard dating. It was hard to feel comfortable with anyone because of my skin especially at my age where most of the women my age don't get acne anymore. 

        One day I was at a friend's house. My face was covered in pimples so I wasn't feeling confident at all. Her sister came over and I, of course, was shy and I was hiding. My friend forced me to introduce myself to her sister. When I got a close look at her, poor thing had way worse skin than mine. I think she looks gorgeous though. She was 44 years old and has cystic acne covering her face and chest. The embarrassed look on her face was so familiar. The poor eye contact, the weak voice, the tense shoulders, all so similar. My friend had clear skin so I didn't expect her sister to have acne. My friend is a lesbian and so is her sister. My friend, in an awkward way, mentioned how we are all single lesbians. My friend went upstair and left me and her sister alone. 

     Me and my friend's sister then realized this was a set up. I sat down with her and we talked. We both eventually loosened up. And we hit it off. It was so comforting to have someone who knew exactly what I was going threw. 

             Right now we've been dating for months and we are living together. We have both said I love you. I am very happy.

I relate to this. Me and my boyfriend both suffer from acne. Mine is way worse than his but him having acne makes me feel comfortable with him.

I'm a 44 year old man with a 47 year old wife. We both have acne. We have 5 children: a 23 old daughter, an 18 year old son, a 15 year old daughter, a 13 year old daughter, and a 12 year old son. They all have acne.
