I know how you feel; my mother never understood my insecurity about my body hair and because of it I have taken matters in my own hand a bit late since I was always told that it wasn't a big deal or something not worth worrying about.I suffered alone for many years, well I have finally had it...

Welcome! You're not alone, I too am in a relationship and even though I try to hide my hairy problem I know my boyfriend knows and even though he doesn't mention it I know it bothers him because why wouldn't it when his lower back is smooth and mine isn't? I too tell him I wax even though I can't anymore since I'm starting electrolysis. I will tell you to save a bit of money now, whatever you can, if you can save $5 do it. Good luck!

My body hair has decreased my self-esteem drastically; I believe that I won’t be able to fully enjoy my life until I’m hair free. I don’t think anyone would want to walk down the aisle with someone who isn't confident in their own skin like I am. Overall, my body and facial hair has imprisoned me in my own body.

Just a couple of comments/observations and “words from an old-timer.”

If you are desperate about this, you might easily fall victim to either worthless “miracle products” or practitioners that are all to eager to separate you from your money … by promising more than they know they can deliver. Desperation leads to lack of careful planning and believing the impossible.

Furthermore, in my decades of doing hair removal, I have only had a couple men worry about “walking down the aisle.” Sure they hate being “hair balls” and it interferes with their life. But in almost every case, a man does not base his “self-worth” on the opinion of women. Sorry, but we just don’t (mostly)!

Women still have a lot to learn … from men! Research this hair removal subject with no emotion, and be careful and demand real answers. If a man won’t “go down the aisle” with you … that’s no man you should consider.

Just make arrangements to "get out of prison" ... we have all done it; I DID and so did many others. Get to work on it!

Well I said I wasn't comfortable enough with myself which could keep me from being happy with someone else, that's what I tried to say when I meant someone wouldn't want to walk down the aisle with me. You can't expect someone to love you when you can't even love yourself.

It's not easy to "get out of prison" when you're a 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 year old with low self-esteem; it takes time, lots of time, experience in life, and wisdom to overcome something that is keeping you down; try to tell that to a teenager living in today's world. It's easy to tell someone to do something once you have walked down that road, the difficulty is to find the answers yourself and find what works for you.

I am no longer a teenager, I have overcome a lot of this; have I imprisoned myself? Yes I have. Have I conquered my fears? No I have not but I do value myself a whole lot more because I know that a couple of hundreds of hair doesn't define whom I am.

I got myself a 10x magnifying mirror recently, Omg, I'm seeing so many more unwanted hairs that I didn't know I had! ......... Another thing I worry about is being in prison (not that I'd ever be) or paralysed in hospital and people coming to visit me and seen me beard growing, God, I can hear them now, 'pull the plug, put her down'.. Ha!

yes, my problem exactly. My parents don't understand how insecure i feel about facial hair and just accuse me of simply looking for more problem, saying that I have nothing better to do with my life-worrying over the hair on my face.

Very itchy my hair has always felt, minus the hair on my head. I often wonder if there are other men out there with this same issue. I also hate the looks of it. There is no uniform color to matching the same color on my head. Simple bug bites had me itching for days which led to sores and scars, so you bet I hate it!

My chin was constantly itchy, I could feel every last hair on my face and in recent years, started feeling like sandpaper. Putting on a pair of jeans would pull hairs out, sometimes same with underwear. What a terrible feeling, I wish on no one out there!

my upperlip is a priority to remove.
i was teased a lot when i was little.
i started waxing a few years ago, totally oblivious that it would imprison me into waxing every other two-three weeks, to every other week, to once a few days . till i have to worry about it constantly. i started plucking my eyebrows as well. it seemed harmless at the time but after a few years , they grew noticeably thicker. same story with my parts of my legs, calves. luckily i found out about vaniqa . the situation with my upperlip has been better but i feel like its holding me back from really enjoying my life.
i remember when i never had to worry about my facial hair. i feel like that was the last time i was really happy but now i feel like time is passing & its further in the past .

im consulting an electrologist so that's something to look forward to.(:
i hope one day ill feel as free as i did 3 years ago. (:
