Sadly, I Feel Shame

Eight months ago I began dating my current boyfriend.  We are happier than we have ever been and our sex life is great.  However, he is not what society would describe as 'attractive'.  I love him, and he is attractive in my eye, and that is all that should matter, correct?  But sadly, we don't live in a social vacuum.  People see us together, and I find myself feeling embarassed that I am with him.  I don't care what he looks like, but I know that other people, and I care what other people think.  I would never tell my boyfriend this, as it would break his heart, and I can't tell any of my friends because I'm afraid they would think of me as being shallow.  But I can't help how I feel.

if you think he is attractve, then what makes you think nobody else would think the same about him?<br />

if people really do see the two of you, and they think he is less attractive than you, if anyone is thiking anything at all about it, its probably,'thats girls now shallow'.<br />

i hope some day you wont worry what other people think and just be happy with the great relationship you have.
