This sounds incredibly shallow, but I really don't mean it to be. I love my boyfriend and he adores me, but he is not that great looking. I used to think he was really ugly but a year later (aka now) he is so cute to me, and to be fair handful of people think he's cute looking too, but that isn't the point. Whenever I show his pictures to my family and close friends I see their faces turn to a cringey kind of disgust and it makes me feel so embarrassed to show his pictures, and now I just don't show them at all, or tell lies about who I am with. Mostly because they are people close to me and their opinions really matter to me. My boyfriend has started to notice me acting distant and I obviously cannot tell him why but I'm not sure what to do.

What you should do is woman the fuck up and ignore their reactions. You're not with him for his looks, but because he makes you feel good. If they think he's not good looking them tell them off, and pretending like someone else if your boyfriend if really sick, especially when the one you're really with loves you no matter what. Their opinions shouldn't matter because it's not their relationship, it's yours. Now start acting like the good girlfriend he deserves to have instead some shallow child.2
