o.k, so my friend and her boyfriend are tryna set me up with this guy. He sounds nice and everything. We've never met, so it's the whole blind date thing. Apparently he's seen a pic of me(and still wants to meet me),I thort that mite hav put him off,lol. I'm supposed to be meeting him really soon and i just feel really nervous bout it. I'll be coming to the end of my birth control acne treatment pills in about a week, no miraculous difference really. I'm still getting new shit aswell as red marks. The doc ses she'll refer me to a specialist if after another month theres no major improvement so, i'm stayin positive. But i'm not feelin so great about meetin this guy cause my skin's not lookin so good. Wen we do meet i want to feel comfortable about myself and not be hiding my face all the time, i mean wot kind of message is that to a guy. So, wot do i do guys?short of finding a cure for acne myself within the next fortnight i'm clueless. I think we're going to the cinema so at least it'll be dark,haha :shifty: maybe i cud fashion some sort of hairstyle with maximum face coverage.....help me guys please :wall:

Dont worry about it :)

Some of the best times ive had with girls was when my acne was it its worst. Talk with the guy and see where things go.

And covering it all up may not be the best idea. Of course a little makeup can go far but dont go over the edge.

Just relax :)

Proper make up can really cover almost anything,then again it can also make your acne worse later on.Confidence can be created through head and it is mainly through head so be positive ,if your gonna be way too concerned about your looks while meeting him that may turn him off.Hope everything goes well for you.

You should go, relax, have a laugh, show this guy how awesome you are and if he doesnt like you for who you are, then he's not worth it.

ps: if it helps - have a pre-cinema Scotch/G&T before you leave the house to calm the old nerves lol.

Here's my advice...lots of experience w/ guys has taught me that CONFIDENCE can sometimes be the most attractive quality in a girl...no matter what she looks like. So, be confident...laugh & smile...I'm guessing that if he's a good guy he won't even notice your facial flaws. And keep in mind that he's probably nervous too. I'd say just be yourself but keep things cool & comfy. If you start out nervous, shy & hesitant to look him in the eye, craving outings in only dark places, then the relationship will start out unhealthy from the beginning & that's never good. Good luck!

I don't get it. Why do people always go to the movies on the first date? You don't learn much about each other because you don't have a chance to converse.

ok well i have been on a lot of blind dates so heres what you do. Make sure you you keep talking, dont make him feel uncomfortable with the silences lol because they suck, be smiley and happy and look like you want to be there. Dont keep checking your phone for messages and stuff devote all your attention to the guy for that night. Be a bit touchy feely, dont go too far obviously but let the guy know you like him and aren't repulsed (well if you do like im lol obviously if you dont then guess all this doesnt apply). oh yeh and definately dont talk about you ex's lol becuase this will turn the guy right off you (so this may apply if you dont like him :) ).

As far as your looks are concerned your a really attractive looking girl and your skin looks good to me but if you are worried about any scars that you see then just use a bit of make up, the guy will probably be so nervous about how he looks he wont even notice any red marks anyway :clap:

The best thing you can do is to ask him questions about himself...when you can, don't ruin the movie! Guys like to talk about themselves so it'll work! Start the date off right by smiling a huge smile and giving him a genuine comment, be a little flirty with it...take the focus off you then you'll feel more comfortable! And guys love a girls smile, so act happy if it kills you because it will light up your face and he's not gonna notice your skin! Oh! I don't know what your makeup style is, but try a brighter lipstick to set his focal point on your mouth, or show a little skin and wear a cool choker, take control of his focus...sounds stupid but these things help! Good Luck! Keep us posted! Oh, and the hair thing? Bad idea, it'll be obvious you're trying to hide something. And if he's an asshole, or makes any shitty comments, gives a bad look or anything, turn it around on him! Point out his flaws real loudly...you'll feel better! But I'm sure it'll be fine, I just believe in worst case scenario planning! Good luck! Keep us posted!

Definately not :P

Only self centered guys do (i dont know how many there are of those...)

If he doesnt ask anythingabout you than yes, talk about him.

I always ask the girl what they like.

Well try to avoid silent moments and bright lightning if you feel its that bad, use some makeup to cover your worst parts if you feel that is necessary. Dress nice etc and it will probably work out.

what i would do in ur place is use a looottttt of make up, personally. whenever i don't have confidence, i put make up on and it makes me feel much better. i mean this advice may not be liked by some, but that's my way of dealing with issues like acne. good luck.
