I'm putting this one out to everyone. I wanna know what's on the minds of women and men. So who has it harder? Men or Women with Ich? Being a beautiful single woman, (who happens to have a skin condition [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/smile.gif

All around, you see these airbrushed, impossibley built, plastic women who serve as image role models to little girls all over. Growing up with that nonsense can be kinda hard. It's takin' me a long time for me to be comfortable with who I am and what I look. The older I get, I've learned that beauty is definately in the eye of the beholder.
That being said, it's still hard to put yourself out there to meet guys. Where the heck are the men hiding. My point is I think it's a tad harder for women with ichthyosis to meet guys. Of course..... that's only my opinion [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
What do you think?
