"Why do you always get those on you"

What a fucked up night. Well let me start off by saying.... me and my girl been together for 2 months... I have moderate acne... and she has a pimple or two on her face and a few marks but we have never mentioned the word "acne" or anything to do with it ever. Until tonight. But today was different, today before we even seen each other, I had this ugly ass looking yellow head on the side of my nose. It wasn't a cyst, but it sure was bigger than an average sized pimple. So I get to her house at about 4. We sit on the couch and watch some TV and shit together and kiss and cuddle and all that shit. When she starts rubbing her hand on my face she asks me "Why do you always get those on you"..... and I just made up some quick excuse like "It was from a weight lifting supplement I took earlier this year and this side effect won't go away"...... now come on.... each and everyone of you guys know that its not exactly easy to say "I have that on my face because I've had acne for over five years now and I can't find any treatment." But after I said that she goes.... "Whatever you do... don't pop it."

that's shallow. I'm sorry to hear...

jeez. reminds me of this asshole ex that would demand I lend him my car (I was 16 and he was 15 w/no license) and then he would sit up front driving with his best friend in the passenger seat. they would go mudding out in the woods in the 96' purple ford escort my grandparents gave me. one day they slammed on the brakes. my face smashed forward and hit the seat in front of me and a bunch of makeup that was on these zits on my nose came off. it was rubbed off on the seat and his friend was such a dick and he kept pointing it out to the other guy in the car (yeah they even picked up another friend) and like "hey what's that on the seat why do you have all that stuff on your face" and he was even making fun of my acne and asking why i wore all that makeup that came off on the seat and pointing out my acne... omg it was so humiliating.

I was so embarrassed, I remember that I kept looking in the window seething with hatred for his clear-skinned friend that had a great time that day making me feel awful.

Jess you ever live in SW Florida because that sounds just like a friend I had a long time ago. He was eventually arrested for taking his mom's car mudding :shock:

it doesnt sound like what your gf said was a malicious comment, it sounded like she felt bad or concerned for you, like 'how come you always get these things, thats not fair.' but i didn't hear her tone of voice. either way, i never like people to mention my skin unless they're telling me it's flawless!

she probably didn't mean it in a bad way.. it probably just slipped out. dont worry about it.. unless you know she said it in a bad way.

Meh.

I've had 'significant others' point out my acne before. The latest one said something like "I don't want to offend you or anything, but have you tried anything for your face?" It's been sort of interesting, though... she doesn't seem entirely disgusted by it. I can discuss my dryness/flakes (from the regimen) with her... and proudly got to say that they've been reduced a lot thanks to an AHA moisturizer.

Hehe, she's also sensitive about her weight. I think she could stand to lose a little, maybe 10 pounds, but she's really sensitive... so if she ever insulted me because of my complexion then I could call her fat and stupid. Or I could be humble, depends on my mood.

But I guess the bottom line is that she wouldn't be with you if she didn't like you and didn't want to deal with your problems.

Or she's planning on leaving soon. Sorry to be a pessimist.
