    Scars/pits are ugly, I'd rather date a girl without them.

    Scars/pits I can get past, a girl can still be beautiful with them.

    I have scars and ice-pick scars/pits on my face from having severe acne not long ago. I've also been told that even with treatment (e.g. laser resurfacing or a chemical peel) 30% or so of the scars will still be visible.

    I then hear boys talking about 'beautiful skin', 'she had flawless skin', 'I love her skin'. It even popped up in the recent Harry Potter film and a book I'm reading.

    I can wear good foundation but you can still see the pits/marks at certain angles. It's making me really depressed because maybe it will explain why boys don't seem that into me after a few hours, they notice my skin and get put off.

    So, is it true? Would you not date a girl with scars/consider girls with no scars as more beautiful?

    Edit: I no longer have spots. I have no acne. No spots. No acne. Just scars.

    I'd love my girl to have smooth skin, that is free of acne and scars. It just feels so nice to touch.

    Beautiful skin is something that's always seen as timelessly attractive, that's all. It doesn't help if you have gorgeous skin but a totally out of proportion face and look like a total munter.

    I doubt it's your skin that's putting them off though. If I'm wrong and it is, then they're not worth bothering with anyway.

    The same could be said for girls :dontknow: Some girls don't like guys with acne and stuff. Bad acne does, admittedly, put me off sometimes.

    Seriously don't worry. A lot of people in my family had REALLY bad acne and all of the scars and pits cleared completely. Some guys may be put off, some won't - just like body shape and other facial features will be more important to other guys.

    Perhaps if you desire male attention you should also consider losing a few pounds?

    you can always make it beautiful even if it isn't. i do think you're generalising a bit though; there are guys with imperfect skin however I think it's just natural. Don't fret too much over it though there's worse thing in life. also if you're beautiful in other aspects they can easily be overlooked.

    Don't overdo the makeup, there's nothing worse than makeup caked on a pocky face! Urghh, when I was younger, I used this Clearasil spot cream that also (apparently) acted as a concealer... it only came in one colour. Orangey-brown.

    My friends still tease me for it!

    It is a bit off-putting, but if I liked a girl I'd get over it.

    It doesnt matter so much. Obviously, you would prefer a man with no acne as opposed to one with it. But you can hardly dismiss someone for that, its not the end of the world. Noone is perfect.
