I (19f) am struggling to respond to people who walk up and comment about my acne. I recently blew up at my friends (21f) husband (35m) because he told me I was hot “despite the obvious acne”
Title is self explanatory. I blew up at him, told him I never asked for his opinion, and walked away. In general I’ve had people come up to me and tell me about their “niece using acv to clear her skin” or “just rub lemon and salt on it”
Like ok Karen are you a doctor? Because my REAL doctor has given me medication. I don’t need your stupid advice or your salty lemons.
Anyways I feel bad for blowing up at him about the acne comment and I’m wondering how I should/could respond to these kind of comment in the future. Am I allowed to blow up? Or should I just thank them and walk away?
Edit: thank you to all the people who DMd me with unsolicited advice about acne after reading my post about how I don’t like unsolicited advice
Edit 2: f everyone telling me to just wash my face. I was asking for advice on the situation, not the acne. The only person who’s valid is the one dude who sent me unsolicited cat pics. be like him 🙂
Edit 3: thank you all for the lifetime supply of cat pics. I can’t possible respond to them all but I love them and thank you. To the one guy who told me jizz will clear acne, f you.
A final note: not all age gap relationships are something to bash. I’m currently in an age gap relationship. The problem lies with the fact that he is SO MUCH older than my friend and she is still young. She and I are both not fully developed mentally, whereas he has been for a long time. This creates a difference in power and that is worrisome. He totally controlled her and I know he wants to do the same to me. Luckily I’m not falling for it. Be carful but remember to be respectful of other age gap relationships if you don’t know the full story. <3
