Woman Claims Boyfriend Dumped her, Accused her of ‘Catfishing’ Him

… by using Makeup to cover Acne

A woman has claimed her now ex-boyfriend dumped her after finding out that she used makeup to cover up her acne.

The unidentified woman wrote in a since-deleted post on the popular Reddit forum “Am I the A–H—-,” explaining her hormonal acne and her boyfriend’s reaction when she went barefaced during a weekend trip.

The 20-year-old said that for the first handful of dates, she wore makeup to disguise her breakouts — which usually affect her chin and cheeks. However, when the pair decided to go on a trip with some friends, she did not cover up the blemishes.

“This weekend, me, the guy and a few of our mutual friends went on a backpacking trip and he saw me with no makeup for the first time,” she explained in the post, according to Daily Mail.

“At first, he didn’t say anything, just looked at me a bit weird. When we were alone, he just told me that he didn’t know I had acne like that. After that, he’s been acting distant the whole trip,” she continued. “When we got home that night, he said that it would be for the best to stop seeing each other because he doesn’t like me anymore. As the very last thing, he said that I shouldn’t lead people on like that.”


The woman, who said she only wears a light covering of foundation on her face because it makes her “feel a bit more confident” when going out, claims her boyfriend, also 20, went on to accuse her of “catfishing” guys.

“I made this [Reddit] thread because he told me that I lead him on and that I’m catfishing guys by putting [makeup] on,” she wrote.
