I met my bf during Uni camp in Y1, where we became very good friends.
Although he’s a nice guy, I am never considered him because I like sporty guys and he’s the nerd type. Same goes for him because I am the “cute” type while he likes girls who are the “model” type.
He has always been showing me pictures of the “model” type of girls that he likes.
Last week, we just got together because we realised we have feelings for each other. He told me that his group of friends, upon knowing that he has gotten a gf, asked him how did I look and said that they want to compare me to the crushes he had in the past.
This made me sad because honestly I don’t feel too bad about myself but words from his friends are making me feel that I’m not good enough. ???? People will say things like “HUH Y U DATE HER” ..
I know i shouldn’t take what others say to heart but it’s difficult. Anyone had similar issues before and how did you handle it ?
- What his friends gossiped about you is one thing, but why did he tell you? So odd, knowing it perfectly well that it will make you feel less of yourself and you having ill feelings towards his friends. Your bf’s pretty dense/白目, else, he just wanna let you know you are less than his usual “crushes”. Oh yes, crush only, also not gf, obviously he also can’t get those “model” girls bah. He seems self-centered, do be careful treading around in this relationship…
