Re: Accutane & Romantic Relationships
I don't see the big deal with guys using moisturizer... I thought most did anyway!
I agree with California, you'd be surprised how many people have either been on Accutane or known someone who has. I'm fairly new at my place of work, and there are a couple people I really didn't have much to talk about with. Well, I don't know how it came up but I mentioned I was on Accutane, and surprisingly, both of my coworkers had also, and a third one came up wondering about our experiences because she was thinking about going on it as well!
Don't make it the first thing you bring up on a first date... that will make you seem nervous and self conscious about it. Wait until an opportune moment (say, bringing out your chapstick for the tenth time..you could be like, "Gosh my lips are SO chapped! I'm on Accutane right now and it's a real pain." Be humourous about it though, and don't act sad or depressed when you talk about your skin/Accutane b/c whining or sounding like you want pity is NOT attractive. But doing it in a funny, almost blunt manner could very well be a good way to strike up conversation.
Good luck! Trust me, being on Accutane is not as "faux paus" as you think! ;-)
