I'm a girl. And honestly speaking. I have a lot of stretch marks.
many fade over time but they are never fully gone you see. And now the hype is all about people with flawless bodies+skin etc ect. Which makes me awfully self conscious.:erm: I'm decent face and figure wise and i do date (I am in no way bragging!!!)..but i feel like i can't date to the extent of getting that intimate you know, because of this. Few guys i know are going on about how they'd hate stretch marks on girls and all that stuff. As a guy/girl would find this off putting on your potential love interest or do you not care about it at all?

Sorry for all the negativeness but i would like to know what you guys think about it

I would not care at all - not that I would be in any position to complain, because I have stretch marks. They are really common and anyone who would be put off by them is just silly.

I wouldn't find them off putting, and anyone who does isn't worth your time anyway.

Not me. I never even knew what stretch marks were (or that I have them) until I was with an ex and saw hers, and I thought 'no biggie'.

I think, as in anything, there are going to be degrees of severity and degrees to which people are bothered. I would suggest that the majority of guys/gals wouldn't be concerned by stretch marks, given that, if they should see them, then they clearly find you attractive enough to sleep with you. They have never bothered me, but then I only sleep with girls I'm really in to, so perhaps I'm not the best study.

It's one of those real people vs. airbrushed model issues - almost everyone has stretch marks, we're just led to believe that the good and the great don't. Anuone bothered enough by this to be put off is probably hugely lacking in sense and is setting themselves up for a lifetime of loneliness i.e. not worth you sweet time.

You can't compare models on magazines that have been photoshopped to remove spot, wrinkles and stretch marks and make them thinner as well to real life. People are realistic about what people look like. Don't worry about it at all.
