Wanting to find out what you guys think about scars on a girl?
When I was young, I had to have a large operation on my leg, which left me with a scar the length of my thigh, as well as smaller ones at other places on both of my legs. Because of this, I don't really wear shorts, since the scars attract attention.
So my question would be, do scars like that turn a guy off? (since that has happened ...)

I'd like to know this as well. I have a small scar under my belly button near the bikini area. I had to have surgery to have a ovarian cyst removed last year. I also have a few scars on my arms from work. I'm always more nervous about my arm scars than anything because I always worry people will think it's from self harm even though it's not.

My natural inclination is telling me yes, but to what degree... I don't recall ever dating anyone with scars nor ever being turned off by scars. I suppose it depends on how noticeable it is and how much it clashes (if at all) with your skin tone.

Is there no end to idiotic threads in the fashion/beauty forum?

Do you think that people want scars? That they put them on their bodies on purpose?

Good grief ...

I dated a girl who had a burn scar mark on the side of her thigh. She always cover it up so she never would wear a miniskirt.

Since I've seen it a lot and you can definitely feel it because of the dead skin there. It doesn't bother me at all.

As for face I've had a friend who had a knife scar on her cheek, it looks kind of cool in a way.

You should stay away from guys that care about perfect beauty.

I know some guys are turned off by C-section scars but I'm turned off by breast augmentation scars.

+ an infinite number, I just don't understand why all the turmoil and drama about something that cannot be changed.

So what if you have a scar or 2 or more, if the guy is put off by that it is his issue and he is not worth the time it takes to delete his contact information from your phone.

OP: have you seen the movie "Bend it Like Beckham" ? The main actor has a real life scar on her leg that was incorporated into the script as a small storyline of the movie.

Scars are just a fact of life. Even if you don't start with them, you might end up with them. When I got married, my husband had a scar running the length of his stomach. I didn't have any scars at that point. Now I have a C-section scar and an 8" long scar on my lower leg.

If someone is shallow enough that they can't accept you with a scar on your leg, then that's not the person you want to grow old with.

Depending on the look of your scar and how you heal, you might be able to get a tattoo to cover it. A tattoo is a scar also, but it's a scar you choose, and that might help you feel better about it.

sorry if it sounded a bit idiotic :/ but i just meant it as a simple opinion question. I'm quite content about my scars, it can just get annoying if people stare, so was asking for a general opinion.

Thank you for sharing that, it's nice to hear some can accept scars

I agree, such things are a part of life, but I wouldn't want to say it's irrelevant, since even if a person can come to terms with having scars, it can be disheartening if, when wearing things like shorts, skirts or swimming costumes, the same a everyone else, to be stared at and commented/gossiped about. I think it would become irrelevant, when it is possible to show scars, not be seen as different, yet still complain about them? not sure if you agree with me, but that's what I think :/
