he made me feel beautiful inside and out
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
Well I am seeing this new guy. He is not usually what I would date but I somehow fell in love with everything about him. Not to long ago he broke up with someone and told me that when ever we all hung out he thought I was so much prettier. He also said that is the reason his ex-girlfriend didn't hang out with me much was becuase she was jealous. Well I am pretty close to dating him now and he made me feel beautiful inside and out. Yesterday I introduced him to my best friend, who is gorgeous, and you could tell he oviously thought so. It makes me worried seeing this like it will happen again, but my best friend is very loyal and already has a long term boyfriend. It makes me feel bad that no matter what I do I can't live up to her beauty which makes me feel really lousy. As pathetic as this may sound I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice because I really need some!
No matter how pretty you are, there is always going to be someone prettier. This applies to intelligence, handsomeness, skills, sports, etc.
So, what are you going to do about it. Not much you can do but accept the fact that someone will top you in some particular characteristic. What matters is you as a whole. If your boyfriend loves you as a unique individual then you have nothing to worry about.
If you try to ride through life on your physical beauty you are doomed to a life of worry and doubts. Your looks will eventually fade and there will always be someone prettier than you.
Have a long honest talk with your boyfriend and discuss your worries. If he is a jerk about it, show him the door!
