Would a girl be bothered if a guy had stretch marks? Watch

    Curious to see what the reverse response will be. I have stretch marks on my bicep (only my left), where my bicep meets my chest, just above my calves and some on my lats. As you can probably tell, most of these are from the gym. I'm pretty self-conscious about them. When I first saw one I didn't go to the gym for 7 months lol. Now just have to deal with them as they pop up! Would it bother you?

    I dont mind stretch marks too much, although if they're really thick and red like the ones that come up in photos when you type 'stretch marks' into google images, thats really scary- im one of those squeamish people who don't like blood and guts and what have you. Still, if it were someone extremely special i'd just have to get used to it.

    Because I have many myself, it wouldn't bother me. In fact, I've seen plenty of hot guys with stretchmarks on their arms etc

    I think I'd cry if they were bright red and ultra thick! I'll probably put a picture up of the ones on my bicep if people get more curious about their severity

    even if they were red and thick, they'd eventually heal and settle down into white ones

    Nah I'm not bothered by them. My partner has quite a few as well as keloid scars from when he had acne and tbh, I don't notice them any more. I have some stretch marks too so I'm used to seeing them anyway.

    Most stretch marks fade over time so it isn't an issue

    Nope, wouldn't have an issue with it. Most people have stretch marks. They'll probably fade over time but you could always use bio oil or something like that

    I had them on my back due to my growth in height. We all joked i was having a baby the back way.
