I'm in a relationship that I am very unhappy in. He is very controlling and doesn't let me do anything. Any time I've said I want to break up, he tells me I am too ugly to ever find someone else so I might as well stay with him.
Sometimes I feel he is right. I mean this is my first relationship and I am 27. That's proof I am ugly. No one gets in a first relationship at 27. Plus I was still a virgin. So is it better to stay in an unhappy relationship if you're too ugly to meet anyone else?

I do have a tendency to hang on past its expiration date.
I'll think, "We can work this out, we can get past this," but in reality, I've simply worn out my welcome (which I apparently do quite often) and I'm left holding onto something that's trying trying trying to break free.
This is something I only realize AFTER it's over, when I'm able to look back and analyze the situation without emotion.
I haven't figured out what the real issue is yet, but I haven't given up the search...
Is it better to stay in an unhappy relationship?
I don't think so.
Regarding your specific situation?
GET OUT, if that's how things really are.
Having fewer relationships isn't proof that you're ugly, it's only proof that you haven't had any other relationships. There are many reasons people don't have relationships. I haven't had one in 3 years, and I don't think I'm ugly.
My advice... get out.
Make yourself happy, don't stay because you think you can't do any better - you're better off alone than with someone who constantly cuts you down.0
