Today, I went with my boyfriend to the optometrist for him to buy contact lenses for the first time. He said the detail was much better than glasses. I excitedly asked him if he could see my freckles better now, and after a long and disappointed look at my face, he said "Nope, just more acne." FML

Ops boyfriend probably didn't know she had freckles that was probably brought up between them earlier. Now op bf can see better she asked if he could see her freckles. She wasn't exited or proud, just asking.

22: sorry, failed at thumbing you up. I think it was more of that she was excited he could see better and was hoping now he could actually see what she maybe pointed out earlier that he couldn't see. Not excited for having freckles, just excited for that maybe he could see what she was talking about,

What the heck do people have against freckles? It's stupid to think that freckles are ugly. It's stupid to constantly cover up your faces with ugly makeup to hide freckles. It's stupid that freckled people have no hope in any kind of beauty industry. Freckles are beautiful, cute and adorable, even in men!

I can understand that people have preferences in the kind of traits that they're attracted to. If freckles don't do it for you, that's understandable. However, that does NOT make that person ugly.

I hold the same views for the occasional mole.

29- Nobody really said they're ugly. They just said there's not really a reason to be excited about them- because there's not. I have a tiny little mole on my cheek that I think is cute but I don't go up to people and say- Can you see my mole?!

We hide our freckles because of people like the original commenter.

In his defense, she did ask. But I guess he should have taken the approach when a girl asks how they look. No matter what respond with "you look so beautiful" it saves a lot of time, effort, feelings, and will prevent anger. Even if she says be 100% honest.

The good news is that his vision is much clearer/sharper now ^^
What he said was just unlucky, and he cares enough to be honest!:)
So that shows the trust you two have for each other, have a nice day :)
