I've never been very confident about my appearance and I was always conscious about certain aspects. For example I have dark hairs on my arms. I remember a comment a boy made at school when I was 9 years of age and I went home and shaved them. I was very self conscious as a teenager too. But I guess I grew into myself and became a bit more comfortable. I'm 24 now.
The thing is I met a guy recently. We went on holidays together and while we were there he made comments about my body which got to me. I didn't really dwell on them there coz I wanted to enjoy the sun. But when I got back home the thoughts started picking my brain every waking moment. And I've cried about it and have started to feel down. I met him again last month and he pointed out the hairs above my lip (which i dye) and wrinkles around my eyes. I nearly started crying but kept it together.
Now I've started to feel conscious about these things which had lain dormant for so long. I do like him but he seems to be very appearance oriented. I know I'm not perfect but I do like how I look most days.Oh and that's another point. I do a very good job on my own putting myself down. I dont need some newbie throwing in his share.
I'm just wondering if I should say anything to him?
