    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    I dont know about most of you guys, but i wear makeup. Damn if i have mild acne and put it on you cant tell im wearing it or have acne. It if is bad yes you can tell i have acne,but if helps a little. i just make sure i do it well so it is not noticable. there are many guys who do it so dont be fooled

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    Yeah, personally, I don't mind the make-up part one bit. Except for the times where, while I'll be putting on concealer, I'll think, "okay, when will I be normal, where I'll just be able to wash my face and leave the house?", but hey, I believe in being grateful for what you have. I have mild to moderate acne, but the actual problem is the scars my pimples leave behind. I don't get them a lot, but whenever I get one, it'll will leave a mark on my skin for about a month, or even longer.

    But yeah, I second what nj guy said. I also try to put it on so it's not noticeable, and no one has said anything... yet. Lets hope there will come a day where I won't have to worry about concealer at all.

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    "Beauty is only skin deep" is the saying which applies to this question, sometimes what lies within people is far more important than what lies without. Look for inner beauty, of course by human nature we are all rather shallow and we are all VERY opinionated, which I think maybe is wrong. But sometimes once you get to know people you realise there are more important things than looks. Personally I like to see both reasonable looks and good personality on a girl, but I wouldn't let the acne distort my view of beauty.

    i think it's safe to say that we are all our own worst enemy. i mean i know that i hold myself to much higher standards than i do others. for the most part everyone who has replied to this post has said that they would overlook acne on someone they'd date. if only we'd take that to the next level and view ourself through the same rose colored glasses!

    yeah we all no beauty is skin deep but that doesnt mean thoose folks that never had a zit in their life know it.I know for a fact tht acne has kept me from getting lots of girls. Maybe becuase my confidence is down when im broken out but i doubt it.

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    Well, I agree with what someone said, about being a hypocrit if we said we wouldn't date someone with acne, since we have acne ourselves. So maybe it's kinda stupid to ask the question. But do you think someone with clear skin will go out with someone with pimples, too?

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    I think the same goes for me, I have not had like any girls due to my skin which kinda sucks. I think in my case I give off a bad vibe when I am all broken out which is probably a turn off, plus my self consciousness is heightened when I am around girls/speaking to them so I probably worry too much as well.

    When my skin was almost clear I found it so easy to talk to girls, it was amazing I can tell ya, the difference it makes is immense.

    I've seen guys with worse acne than me dating girls who have clear skin and are not ugly either, it can happen.

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    *~Open your eyes!! SOO many people have acne nowadays its very easy to overlook. I counted in my english class the other day... and 10 out of the 16 people in the class had some kind of acne. 2 more had had it before. We're not alone. I think the ONLY reason we may have trouble getting dates is not because we look bad, but because we THINK we look bad, and the acne does so much to our self esteem that we dont even give ourselves a chance. You guys that say you cant get girls...i bet you dont go out and hit on girls left and right like many guys do cuz your self conscious. Try it! Thats the only way i will date a guy, is if he approaches me first and shows some interest in me. I dont care if he has acne or not, if he likes me then that is automatically a good thing =) So look in the mirror and say 'I AM THE MAC DADDY' and go find a girl! Hehe. My acne has recently cleared up on B5 (but my face is all red and i have scars)...but i have only had one date recently...i always had a bf when i had acne...which i think is kinda weird. My one date was realllll ****ing hot and guess what? I HATED HIM. He was so shallow. He didnt have any acne.. but i would never date him again. I better stop typing now =)

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    Haha this topic has reminded me of something that happened to me in highschool. Two things actually. One day, I walked into our Biology class. I was pimping a new outfit, visor, shades, etc. The cool thing about Biology class, was that this super hot girl sat right in front of me. She was one of those girls that all the guys talked about, since she was like *the* hottie of the school. Anyways, when I walked into the classroom, I heard her whisper to her friend, "Damn, he looks sexy today". I was like, hell yah I do!! =]

    Another story in highschool. I was going through a typical breakout, and being the guy that I am, I tried to use concealer or whatever that stuff is to cover it up. Well, apparantly I did a poor job of putting it on, so as soon as I got to math class and sat down, my friend who sat next to me says, "Dude, are you wearing makeup?" Now, what the heck are you supposed to say in that situation?? Well, I said no. No I am not wearing makeup. Then he's like, well wipe your face off with your sleeve, you got some powdery stuff on your face. I'm like, uhh, powdery stuff?? Throughout math class he kept bugging me about it, was very embarrassing. =]

    Anyways, just thought I'd post these stories for nostalgia value. =]

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    Of course i would date a girl with acne. I cant complain because i have a few pimples here and there so I have to accept people for who they are. I am not all about looks, I care mostly on how people feel on the inside.

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne? a girl (woman) I can't answer that question subjectively, but take it from me, guys WILL date girls with acne. How do I know? I have had numerous clear-skinned/perfectly-skinned guys (now men) ask me out. So...don't worry about it. Seriously, don't. If you run into some shallow B%$STARD who is into modeling (and tell him congratulations for one is responsible for how they LOOK so I wouldn't give him any credit for looking good - plus his personality sucks) just think how pathetic he must be to make a completely ignorant comment like, "I wouldn't date a girl with a pimple." Well...hell, that girl is LUCKY not to have to deal with a fool like that...I am asking you to step back, take a grand, scoping look at the world, the universe, and tell me, when did models ever do anything ground-breaking for the world? Uhhh...never...and not to get down on the modeling profession or "looking good" but don't beleive what society pushes on you that looking good is feeling good 'cause it's not, and looks fade, and then people who ride on their looks all their life die a lonely death thinking..."what have I done all my life?"...oh, and looks don't equal power either, they just are because beauty really is in the eye of the beholder (just ask any socielogist). Ok, now I am off my soapbox sorry, but when I hear about someone making comments like that it drive me BATTY! I can't even fathom the ignorance of some people...maybe it's lack of education...I dunno...but it's pathetic either way. Just hold your head up, be strong, and you'll eminate attractive waves...and the guys will come in due time.

    I probably wouldn't date a girl with acne for the sole reason of the fact that our children (if things worked out) would have horrific acne. Besides that, it wouldn't bother me. <IMG SRC="">
