evilness of stretch marks

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I have one stretch mark (as far as I know)

its on the top of my leg...thing is though...I have always been really skinny and I always thought that only overweight or pregnant women got them...is it just because I stretched when I was getting taller....
as you can see im a bit clueless and need a bit of insight....

thanks... <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Well I've never had any (being a bloke) but I though I'd say that they don't really mean anything, and won't put us blokes off at all.

    Well, men can get stretchmarks too.
    They can occur anywhere the skin has been stretched.
    Teenagers having growth spurts are likely to get stretch marks, as is anyone who gains or loses a significant amount of weight in a short period of time.
    They will fade over time to a silvery-grey colour although they will never go completely.
    Some people use cocoa butter as they believe this helps them too fade.

    Don't worry about it, most women (and some men) have them.

    As a vain bitch of a girl at five months pregnant, I am appealing to the better nature of all the Site users to please STOP all talk of stetch marks for the indefinate future.

    Did you ever put on a bit of weight then lose it really quickly?

    That could have caused them.

    I have loads cos when I was a student I ate like a pig and was a fat goth. then when I came home I realised how big I'd got and lost the weight really fast so now I'm stuck with them forever and I don't even have a baby to show for it AWWWWWW!
