    Hi there I just keep thinking I will never get a girlfriend because I have had acne (the spots have mostly gone but there’s quite a bit of scarring - the scars are not the worst I’ve seen but it still gets me down) I’m 17 btw

    My self confidence is low and I’m also very shy but I have a decent set of mates and nobody has really ever bullied me for my acne which can only be a good thing.

    I just can’t see myself with a girlfriend- I’m not desperate but I would like a girlfriend. I’m shy but I believe I’m regarded as a nice guy. I dress up smart and have a great music taste (Oasis, The Verve, Kasabian etc)

    Look, I know there’s people worse off than me - and I’d be more comfortable with a girl with acne if I’m honest. And I’m not seeking attention just advice really.

    Thanks for reading this any advice would be appreciated 😀

    Confidence, charisma, great personality etc will totally distract girls from your acne. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. If you can’t deal with the scars you can get it removed.

    Don’t worry, your acne will get better 🤞 You could always try buying a product to help it and the scars 💛 and don’t worry about the girlfriend part as 95% of girls understand the pain 😩

    My friend had acne scarring, but she went and got a chemical peel and her skin cleared up. But it doesn't happen over night, you need a few sessions.

    Thanks everybody.

    I do have prescribed creams for scarring and did go to the dermatologist when it got really bad and was on tablets which got rid of the spots. I had it really bad and people have it worse - I know that for a fact.
