Post Potential For Attractiveness

How many of you feel if you have the potential to be attractive if you didn't have any acne? I'm always wondered how I would really look to others with clear skin.

I definitely see where you're coming from. I certainly don't consider myself to be "hot" or anything, but I can't count the number of times I saw a hot girl with a really dorky-looking guy and thought "how the hell did that guy get a girl like that? If it weren't for my acne I'd be better looking than him" or what have you. (Yeah, I know it's not nice to make fun of other's appearances, but you really can't help comparing yourself to others I guess.)

Unofortunately, even after being on accutane and losing a good portion of my acne, I'm still extremely shy, and pretty much never talk to girls. I'm still really self-conscious and have lingering marks and scars. I just keep telling myself "now once I THESE go away maybe I can be more outgoing." But I don't think it's going to be that simple. Oh well. I'm 20 going into my 3rd year of college and I've never really had a girlfriend. (Of course it doesn't help that I'm in engineering and the guy/girl ratio is like 10:1.)
