    I've been with my boyfriend for a few years, both early 20s. We were on a website and a picture of Adriana Lima came up. My boyfriend said that she was unbelievably beautiful and absolutely perfect (he has said this before about her in the past too.

    I realised that he has never described me in such a way before. He has said i'm pretty, cute, hot etc. but he has never said or acted as if I am some kind of absolute goddess.

    I asked him jokingly if she was better-looking than me ( I know she is of course) and he said, don't be silly, there's not even a comparison.

    Does it matter if he doesn't find me absolutely beautiful? I know of course he finds me attractive as he's with me, but he also makes a lot of jokes about my bad teeth, big nose etc.

    Is it important for your partner to descrbe you like that? Would you be upset if he/she made out that others were better looking?

    No, not even in the slightest, if your partner found someone else attractive that's normal, it's part of human nature to feel attracted to attractive people.


    Just because he finds another female attractive, that shoudn't make a difference, as long as he loves you that's all that matters.:top:

    He's with you, and has been for a few years- That's enough to tell me that he wants you more than anyone else tbh. You're looking into it a little too deep, and we all know you don't think he's the BEST looking guy you've ever seen anywhere.

    Beautiful is more about timeless mature elegance than sex appeal. So while a very attractive young person might be described as beautiful it is more common to use other words like, pretty, hot. Don't worry.

    Thanks for the replies Yeah it was just because he has never told me I am absolutely beautiful or perfect-looking or such like, but that's how he describes these women. He also said his former female friend had a 'supermodel face' but never said that to me, lol.
    But yeah i'm probably over-thinking it

    RE the teasing, he just says he teases me because he loves me, but, I dunno, lol
