I have started dating this guy and I am really excited about it!
But my friends keep insulting him, they call him ugly and say that I can do better. They say that he is too short (he is 5'7 but I am only 5'1) and they say that his nose is too big and other stuff. But he is extremely intelligent (he got accepted early to Brown University), he is a great athlete, he is nice to everybody, and we have fun together. I am also physically attracted to him; I like his eyes and smile and other stuff. How can I get them to stop and not let them ruin a good thing for me?

Tell them exactly what you put in the question: all the legitimate reasons why you like him. Those are all good reasons. Anyone who says that you shouldn't date a guy who is intelligent, athletic and has a great personality probably has some very different priorities than you. If you can't make that clear to them and they need to keep berating him, consider new friends.1
