    would you guys date a girl with acne?

    There was a post about would girls date a guy with acne. But would guys date a girl with acne? I mean, acne is more acceptable on guys, but in society, girls are suppose to have flawless porcelin skin. And also, almost all guys I see have acne, but more girls I see have clear skin. And it's not makeup, because no makeup can cover up acne THAT well. So I'm just wondering, would you guys date a girl with acne?

    When I had pretty bad skin, my bf still asked me out. My skins pretty much all clear now but he thinks I'm beautiful regardless of what my skins like. I don't think it matter too much. There are some really shallow guys out there obviously and you have to stay away from them, but most guys can see past your skin.

    I disagree that acne is more acceptable on guys than girls. I have had acne for a long time now and its not even that bad but it is so hard for me to get girls because of it. Well, anyway I would date a girl with acne. I know a few of my buddies would to. I think girls have more going for them then just there face such as body hair makeup etc. Guys dont really wear tight cloths or do make up or get there hair done so many times there face is there main selling point. Girls have the advantage of makeup to. Also at least were IM from there are more single girls than guys to so they get the advantage right there.

    oh yes ... I think appearance fades into the background when u get to know the person. For me, personality is number one on my list. However, I do have to have some attraction to the person. Acne doesnt play a huge part in my decision. I've dated couple of girls that were perfect in every way before I got to know them, but their personality just dragged.... it was like talking to a wall. So a lil bit of acne is not a big thing... trust me. Well unless this guy is a big *** wipe, then again I dont think u'd want to deal with him anyways.

    Lol, thanks you guys. I just remember reading someone's post a while ago, and a guy said he wouldn't date a girl with more than one or two random pimples. Hmmm...that STILL bothers me. I should hunt that guy down and beat the crap outta him for making me feel bad. :-D

    I know, makeup is great aye? On really bad days you can just cover up (it may not cover it all) but you feel so much better. Theres times you get sick of putting it on but hey its worth it if you feel better about yourself.<p>[This message has been edited by Dramaqueen (edited 12-02-2002).]

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    damn.. u dont know how hard it is to cover uneven skin tone with makeup!!!!!!!

    I had a bf.. and dated more than 30 guys.. i had somewhat clear skin.. but there were times when i had scars and few blemishes.. yet, it didnt bother them.

    So you really dont have to worry at all. My bf told me that he'll still love me even if i have a million zits on my face.. lol.

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    Haha, that made me think of the other day at school...theres this guy i hang out with, hes not really popular or anything (im more punk, and he tries really hard to fit in wit us) but hes ****ing GORGEOUS. Hes trying to get a job modeling...anyway, he was trying to hang out with us and he made a comment about how none of the girls at school looked good enough for him...and he couldnt date the girl he had liked because he saw her and she had two pimples!! I was like gasp TWO WHOLE PIMPLES! Needless to say i almost kicked his ***, but the point is that everyone else that was there, guys and girls, rolled their eyes and told him he was full of ****. I think the people that are worth your time arent going to make a big deal out of your acne, i certainly wouldnt. I would date a guy with severe acne, if i liked him. Its not that big of a deal, but everyone who has acne feels like they are the exception, that it matters so much on them, when really people will love you even in your not a supermodel =)

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    I would actualy prefer a girl with little acne..so that way I feel more comfortable when my skin breaks out. Girls in general probably have it a little harder, because seem to be more bent up on looks then girls are. But it is different from person to person ad for the most part I do not think a little acne will detere someone from likeing you. Easier said then believed though..

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    I actually find it really hard to find a decent girl with or without acne, my standards are way too high. Part of the reason is because i'm into rock music and I skateboard, some girls around here are either way too ugly for me, they smoke, they are incredibly boring or they're way too immature for me. I know underneath this ****ty skin I look alright so i'm not gonna settle for someone who I don't think meets my standards.

    There was this girl, she had acne but compared to the other girls who were around she was still the most beautiful, appearances aren't everything I guess, I would certainly date someone who had acne, as long as it wasn't too bad I guess.

    sorry if I seem shallow or anything.

    laters.

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    I would be a hypocrite to say I wouldn't date a girl with acne, since I had bad acne myself, and now I have the scars to prove it, but besides that, to me beauty comes from the eyes and the smile, and the way a girl laughs and talks and acts. There is so much more than just how the skin looks.

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    I would definitely date a girl with ance. I could care less. But I have to disagree with that it's ok on guys than on girls. I remember a few years ago that I met a girl for the first time and she pointed out to me that I had bad skin. She said, I "needed an exfoliant". My self esteem dropped at that second. The messed up thing was that she had not-so perfect skin too. I will never forget that night. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/mad.gif">

    Re: would you guys date a girl with acne?

    Hey, JLove...

    We guys can wear make-up too, you know, it's not forbidden <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/tongue.gif"> And yes, I *do* use concealer! It doesn't say, "STRICTLY FOR FEMALES", you know <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> However, what I do is, I'll usually leave one pimple without concealer on, so if people *do* suspect I wear make-up, they'll realize I don't, because that one tiny pimple won't be covered. Cunning, yes, but it works. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

    Cheers!

    i think it is great that as a guy you are comfortable wearing make-up. i know how much of a difference it makes in my own self confidence and i see no reason why guys shouldn't benift from it as well! :-D
