does having acne mean u cannot get a girlfriend / boyfriend ??

hey guys ,,, do u think that if we have acne no girls will show interest in us ,,, and we will never b able to impress them ,,, and will b nothing more to them except frens ,,, do u really think so ?? does acne affect relationships ??? and does acne affect in making new frens ?

Of course not.

I recently got out of a relationship with a very attractive redhead that lasted for nearly 3 years. Keep in mind, I was in this relationship when my acne was at its worst. Fast forward a few weeks, now the most wonderful, charming, utterly radiant girl in the world likes me very much and I feel the same way about her. I'm sure most of you know her, as she is on this board as well.

Take a look at my photos or mySpace, I'm not exactly an Abercrombie model by any means. :lol:

I don't drive a Ferrari and I don't make a six figure salary. I am not a super tall body builder, I am 5'10" and a very lean 145lbs. So, what accounts for all this? Luck? Maybe. Personality? Yes!

If you have a great personality, it will supercede any flaws that you have.

I honestly dont think other people notice it or wory about it as much as we do about ourselves.

Tons of guys tell me that I'm beautiful. I dont feel beautiful, but I just accept the compliment with a thankyou and move on.

The point being people arent always going to percieve you the same way you percieve yourself.

Of course people tell you that you are beautiful, I mean you would be a complete arse to tell someone they weren't. I think most people have been called beautiful but never ugly, but imo this is mainly due to people being nice.

It's all about confidence, one of my good freinds who I might add is absolutely smoking hot told me that any guy can get any girl. It really is true if you walk into a room and you know you want someone and you are confident (not cocky) you can get them. Girls love confidence its like a 6th sense they have that if a guy is confident he is good at so many other things and they become so much more attracted to you. Even if you feel like a piece of crap like I have lots of times just put on the confidence act and you will be surprised at what happens.

This is true to some respect, but there are those who simply can not overlook flawed skin or just being unattractive.

I don't know if this question has been asked before, but it's in relation to this topic nonetheless:

Would you consider being with some1 else who has acne as bad as you do?

or

Would you rather prefer to only be with some one who had NEVER had it / had to deal with it? [strive for the ideal as the psychologists would say]

or

Would you rather being with some1 who may have had it, but no longer has it? [there by being understanding of what it was like for them]

I think everyone wishes to be with someone who understands their plight. With that said, I would choose "Would you rather being with some1 who may have had it, but no longer has it?".

absolutely.

if you're not happy with yourself, insecure... you're better off not getting into a relationship. having a gf/bf takes commitment, and if you're going to let acne bother you, ur really better off clearing it up first. it'll be a waste of time for the both of you, not to mention the pain.

however. if u meet a girl who isn't shallow (give her my number) or a boy who isn't shallow, AND you aren't insecure about your appearance. then shit, go for it.

I have acne and snagged myself a wonderful, good looking, intelligent, funny, superb man! :wub:

I consider myself very blessed to have such a guy love me (acne or not).

Even if you have acne and don't feel confident, set your sights high! Don't settle for someone just because you don't think you can do any better. Set you standards and stick with 'em.

Nonsense... if you got acne you can't get a girlfreind... but if your a girl with acne, its easy cos guys dont give a shit about that kind of thing.

Girls wont even do eye contact with me when I got acne, pisses me off... let alone get a gf.

Im 26... had acne for 12 years... no girlfreind for 12 years.

im a prity straight talking guy so hell why not, ever think it's not because of the acne? ever think that maybe girls don't look at you because your plain not good looking?

ive seen plenty of guys with acne with girlfreinds, despite the fact they got acne, you can see that their cute or handsome. It's simple, your either good looking or your ugly, acne or not

Yes, having acne means you will be alone forever, and noone will ever fall in love with you; you will die a hermit, living in a cheap apartment masturbating to porn.

Just kidding.

acne certainly hasn't stopped me in the past. i've got bad skin and used to be with a model who had the most perfect skin i've ever seen. it's all down to confidence.

bad skin is only an issue to yourself. i can vouch for that because my current girlfriend has acne too. in fact if anything, it's an interesting topic of conversation for us both! plus we can share information (currently i'm a hotbed of information, cos i'm on roaccutane and she's been offered it but so far declined... i get the feeling my results - if positive - will sway her :))

sorry, not a very useful post there!

I have mild acne, and I have a boyfriend. OK, we got together back when I had a goddamn near perfect skin...and he had mild acne. Now we both have acne. We don't talk about it.

Why? Because its not important.

But now I hate him because his skin is clearing and mine is at a stalemate LOL joke

As long as you aren't covered from forehead to neck in acne, I think you're ok if you're a guy. I never thought any girl could like me (I have moderate acne nowadays but scars and redness still plague me) but two of my sister's friends, who we're a couple years younger than me, had huge crushes on me for the longest time. I liked and still do like one quite a bit but she's too busy so alas it isn't meant to be for the near future but at least the opportunity was there.

We're our own worst critic when it's come to this kind of stuff. What we see in the mirror doesn't neccesarily mean what other people see.
