He's Always Giving Me Hickeys
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
My boyfriend is constantly giving me hickyes. It's not that I don't mind it,it's just that I can't get rid of them. I've tried everything I could think of,toothpaste,ice,and frozen spoons. Do you have anything else that would help?I don't want to draw attention to my neck. I've also been wearing my hair down, but that's a problem because I have a dance recital coming up in the next two days. What can get rid of these hickyes really fast?
A hickey is a bruise, it's skin damage. It won't just go away. I have info on them here -
but it's like any other bruise, you just have to let it heal.
A hickey is a mark of possession. Your guy should KNOW you belong to him without him marking you up constantly! What's next, a branding iron? If you have issues with these hickeys, then tell him. And if he doesn't respect you enough to be concerned about that, then he needs a reality check. At some point hickeys cross the line between 'fun play' and 'power forcing the girl to go out with a brand on her.' It sounds like he's crossing that line. He can give you hickeys on other parts of your body that aren't as public. If he keeps choosing to put them on your neck, even though it bothers you, you have to start asking yourself why. A boyfriend should always care about you and your feelings first. If he is delighting in forcing you to go out with bruises on your body, that just isn't right.
