Would stretch marks be a deal breaker?

    So I used to be heavily obese. Talking 17+ stones here. I've lost almost 100 pounds and I'm really starting to like my shape. I feel like I've got nice curves/ass but the problem is I have stretch marks which are only going to become more apparent as I continue to slim down Would this seriously turn a guy off? I know people talk about bio-oil but there's only so much it can do.

    No. You're a sexy tart and you know it.


    *In the second link I gave you, see post number three. That guy cracks me up.

    Nah stretch marks don't matter. I've never been overweight, but my weight goes up and down a lot for various reasons and it's left me with stretch marks on my bum and on the back of my thighs. Pretty sure I have a couple on my back somewhere as well.

    I've never had an issue with them, even if I've pointed them out, generally they're just something that everyone accepts that people get sometimes for whatever reason. If you're conscious of them then by all means rub the bio-oil on them, but they're just marks on your skin. If someone loves you and is attracted to you they're not going to care. If someone rejects you for them then they're not worth your time.

    It never bothers me whatsoever. If they are shallow enough to find you un-attractive based on some stretch marks, they are not worth your time at all
