My boyfriend will compliment other girls and he tells me I'm overreacting. I'm annoyed about it. I want to end the relationship. Am I overreacting? How would you feel about your boyfriend calling another girl 'so beautiful/gorgeous'?

Did he say it to them in a flirty manner? was he saying this to you behind closed doors? Highly depends on the context.

Getting annoyed about it suggests you're either jealous, or insecure, or both. Sadly a lot of people are like this though.
Potentially your b/f is mature enough to recognise other girls beauty, be that physical or personality based, whilst also understanding that he is in a relationship with you and therefore wouldn't even think of going any further than being complimentary.
I've dated girls who did this with guys, and a couple of bi girls who did the same with both guys and girls (we both commented on other attractive girls to each other regularly whenever we were out together), and it didn't bother me one bit because we knew who we loved and wanted to be with.

The fact that you said here that you want to end the relationship-then end it.
If your relationship is threatened by one person complimenting other girls and the other not accepting it as okay then it’s not really much of a relationship.
It’s fine to feel unhappy-it’s your feelings no one can tell you how you should or shouldn’t feel-but the fact that it makes you that insecure that you want to end the relationship, and that he thinks your overreacting tells you all you really need to know.
