  1. Yep yep, time to face reality. =D I just need to change my mentality. I have to stop thinking that not everybody is going to like you no matter how you look. They have their own issues and come from different background. Next time I am going on a date, I'm gonna be myself, not look too desperate, and try to be more casual. I dont wanna even call it a date. I wanna just hang out and watch a movie. Yea yea, people say watching a movie on the first meeting is bad because you don't get to talk to h
  2. Well, lucky for you, people don't hire electricians on their looks =D I would say wash you face often and keep it clean as much as possible. I do it at least once a day at work in the afternoon when I can actually feel the dust+oil on my face.
  3. Yea, 6 months of waiting is TOO long. Just call them everyday for any cancellations or openings. Last time I called my doctor, they told me I had to wait 5 months and I was not fine with that. After calling them several times, they told me there was a cancellation the next day! I am sure there are people like me everyday calling for any openings so you should definitely get started. If acne is affecting you mentally and causes you to lose concentration, maybe it's time you used Accutane. Most p
  4. Sorry to hear that faithhope. On a positive note, your birthday occurs only once a year so you won't have to worry for another 364 days~
  5. Well, I have another date next week with someone new. She hasn't seen my "bad" photos yet. Maybe I should just tell her that i'm butt ugly in person?! That way, she won't have too much expectations to begin with. But that kinda shows that Im not confident with myself, so I don't wanna do that either. Any suggestions? I am trying mix it up a bit because I dont want it to end up like last time. I am thinking about telling her that we should just hang out as oppose to go on a date. Just keep it
  6. I am gonna intentionally drown myself~ *two thumbs up*

    1. Yea, I am just gonna go out and be myself. The more I look for someone, the harder it gets. It's just really hard mentally to be patient. I go out on the weekends and notice couples shopping, eating, driving around together, etc. And I am all alone in my car going to drive thru. I notice these things more and more and it really bothers me. I guess we all need that companionship and acne (scar) is preventing us from having it. It might not be the sole reason that prevents us from having a relat
    2. Thanx for your feedback. I did try putting pictures up a long time ago that showed my scars and had no luck meeting people. Oh well, maybe I am just butt ugly regardless of the scars lol? but I agree online dating is harder than meeting people in person. This is probably my last try. After that, I'll go outside more often or volunteer on the weekends. I guess my problem is that I don't know where to go to meet people. I tried the bar scene but I felt like I didnt belong there. =| I wish you guy
    3. So I tried online dating recently and met a couple people who were interested in meeting me in person. Of course, I only posted my best pictures so they didn't know I had moderate-severe acne scar. When I met them in person, they didn't look too surprised but as the date progressed, I could sense that they wanted to finish dinner and leave. And when I called the next day to follow up, they ignored my calls. The funny thing is that before the date, we exchanged emails and phone calls constantly.
    4. Are you drinking the premade lemonade or do you make it yourself? I recommend natually squeezed lemonade mixed with organic maple syrup (grade B) to make it less acidic. If you try this once a day before going to sleep, it might help. Hang in there brotha!
    5. I've been working and stuff. And I hate working. Can I have some money now? It's for a good cause!

      1. Long time no see! =)

        1. LoL nice name! I would recommend using fresh lemons. Processed sugar is bad...very bad.
        2. Yes, I totally agree. Enjoy your bday and don't worry too much about what you eat. While ur dancing and karaoking, just make sure to drink lots of water!~ Have fun and happy bday! =D
        3. Not really true; unless you already suffer from malnutrition or other debilitating defects before the fast, you shouldn't try it on your own. I've done quite a few fasts before, and even did a 10-day water fast a short time ago. My horrible acne is nearly all gone, and I plan on doing another 10-day fast in May for other health issues. If you read into the health-boosting benefits of fasting you will begin to understand why almost everyone should do it. I'm currently doing a double major in Kine
        4. I hear sex is good for acne...and masturbation is bad. Why? I really dont care but that seems like a good advice!
        5. Do u use the lemon juice only to wash your face? or do you dilute it with water? So when you sweat, do you smell like lemonade? lol
        6. I tried the water diet...lasted entire 6 hours lol. Then I ate like a pig =D I am interested to see how this water diet works out...and if acne will come back once you start eating again. Getting rid of toxins is a right step toward free of acne but I just cant 100% support this week-long water diet because it is dangerous. You can have liver failures, gastrointestinal tract infection, etc. I wouldnt risk permanent damages to my bodily organs just for acne... But anyways, I wish you all the l
        7. No point of squeezing if there is no head! I dont know about icing your nose or making a salad out of it with oil. In my opinion, you should just ignore and forget about it. Sure, ur friends will ask u about it in the beginning, but after that, its a smooth sailing! They won't even care. I know when I see someone with alot of acne, i stare at it for a couple seconds and thats that. I move on!
        8. Hey, hows it goin?

          1. Hey Buuurns~!

            1. Take note: Get some roses and compliment the lady on her looks. Cool!!
            2. It depends on the job you are applying for, but they mostly look to see if you can do the job. In my opinion, work is the best place to have acne because they really dont care if you have it. Or if they do notice it, they dont talk about it.
            3. Thank you for your thoughtful response Sweetheart519. I'll keep your advice in mind next time =)
            4. I have had some dates with girls recently but they ALL ended after the first meeting. I am gonna assume its my acne scars but people tell me girls arnt that shallow....or are they. I took them to a nice restaurant and went without much problems. And I paid for the dinner too! I made jokes and did almost anything to make her feel comfortable. I guess my question is what am I suppose to do after the first meeting? Need some step-by-step instructions. Thank you.
