It's easy to love others but learning to love yourself is the hardest thing to do.

You're both still early days yet, give it time.

It’s just your insecurities coming to the surface Lu. You deserve to be happy and UH is lucky to have such a good person as you. Try and think positive of yourself for once.

Honestly? You can't go by your own opinion! Particularly if you have low self esteem.
I think I'm hideous, in photos I'm triple hideous! I don't think my own opinion of me is going to change, but other people see you differently. Especially people who love you. And the more you like someone, the better they look! If only we liked ourselves that much!
You should just try to accept that he thinks you're wonderful just the way you are! It's hard to work on what you think about yourself, but hopefully you can see yourself the way he/others see you in time.
Do you have times where you think actually you're quite pretty? Rare occasions I think I look nice (but never ever in photos!)
I'm sure you're being hard on yourself xxx

Have you ever tried daily positive affirmations? I keep meaning to try it. Where you say the same positive message to yourself over and over each day (even if you think it's rubbish to start with) until you soak your brain with the positive message and you start to believe it. Maybe we should try it?


Sorry, am going on a bit

I can understand how it sticks, there weren't many compliments in my house either, and most locals thought I was a boy for years, lol.
I think with the guy who disappeared after meeting, it's most likely not because of looks. I think for a lot of people they love the online stuff, they have confidence, can be a person they maybe aren't in real life, then when it becomes real they can't deal with being their true self around someone who only knows the online version so they vanish. Their own insecurities come out, people panic, it's hard not to take it personally though :hug: xx

@Fairy Lucretia ~ A photograph merely shows a snap shot of our shell at one split second in time, it doesn't show who we really are inside. You say your fella is clever - if he is then let him make his own decision to see your inner beauty.

@Topcat ~ The internet is both a blessing and a curse. It gives us each other, finding support where otherwise we would not have it; but it also allows people to live out fantasies of who they wish they were, but are afraid to really be.

I think you need to trust HIS view/opinion/feelings about you. He is in control of his own life and he CHOOSES to be with you. You clearly consider him a wonderful person, so trust that this wonderful person has the ability and intelligence to choose to be with someone who is worthy of him, and that person is you.
