hello to whoever is reading this, this isn’t a shared experience rather it is an open question, As a young adult with ‘hidden scars’ i’d like to know when its appropriate to tell someone about them, how to handle possible rejection and how to allow myself be open to the idea of intimacy in a world where there restrictions on what is sexy is rigid……

hiya – its a tricky one.. personally i am fairly open as to my scarring but its definitely a difficult one – In the past I dealt with it by putting out there as soon as possible so that if rejection comes it comes sooner rather than later.. its like a sieve… weeds out the ones that are not serious.. but everyone is different.. x
