    I've recently lost a lot of weight (like over 3 stone) because I was an unhealthy weight and now I'm down to a good healthy weight. It's made me feel better both mentally and physically, but I'm still quite self conscious of my appearance because I have a lot of stretch marks around my stomach and hips that just won't go away.

    So would seeing a girl's stretch marks put you off her/find her unattractive?

    (Also if anyone has any tips of how to get rid of them, I'd be grateful)

    No, why would it? I think you'd be surprised how many girls (and guys) have stretch marks. It's nothing to be ashamed of.

    In your case it shows your dedication to your health. As an advert once said 'show your stripes'. It's part of you and something you can't change, be proud of it rather than embarrassed.

    If your really that's self-conscious they will die down eventually to the colour of your skin, and you can get creams so they heal quicker.

    I've tried creams and stuff and I think they're as faded as they'll get because not much seems to make it better than it is now anymore (or at least not that I've tried), it's just that they're really big and so still obvious even when similar its a similar colour to my skin so it makes me feel like others would think they are gross to look at

    I am quite proud of myself for losing the weight and stuff but it's just like, that doesn't change other people's first impressions and whatnot

    Even models have stretch marks, you just don't see it because of photoshop

    I think they make a girl more natural so it wouldn't put me off

    Definitely not, most boys have stretch marks themselves

    This is one of those things that women have conjured up themselves. Same thing as having a thigh gap, guys never cared in the first place.

    I don't really care about thigh gaps because i know that that's dumb, it's just that I feel like stretch marks may have a bad connotation behind them being there and i wasnt sure if thats the kind of thing people noticed. It's nice to know that people most likely won't care though so thank you
