Me and my boyfriend are 22. We have been dating for 3 and a half months. In the past I've dated really attractive guys that are really fit but they all turned out to be jerks. The boyfriend I have now has a cute face but he's not as athletically fit. He's not overweight but doesn't have the abs or muscles. I have no problem with that since he can always work out in the future and he treats me right... so much better than my ex boyfriends. However, my mom always jokes around about him being scrawny and how i'm playing it safe. I actually am really attracted to my boyfriend and I love it how good he treats me. Yes, I usually go for the buff guys but I don't mind overlooking it this time since I'm still really attracted to him. Even though I told my mom that I like him and that I don't want another guy, she tries to convince me otherwise. She even obsesses over how attracted my little sister's boyfriends are hot and fit they are and how I just have my average joe boyfriend. Why is my mom trying to make me feel less just because my boyfriend isn't the hottest guy around? He's still cute... just not to her standard. She's even tried getting me with other guys. Advice please.

it sounds like she cares more about the image of who her daughter is dating than your own feelings. if you're happy then don't listen to her. its your life not hers.1
