Why won't my boyfriend tell me how pretty he thinks I am?
I keep asking my boyfriend how pretty he thinks I am on a scale of 1-10 and he said that its demeaning to give anyone a number and that he just thinks that I'm pretty and beautiful. But a year ago he said that I was an 8. I asked him about that and he said that if he did do that then he's a different person now and that it was wrong of him to do so.
I think he just doesn't want to tell me and hurt my feelings...

Jesus Christ woman... I can bet all of my money that if he actually WERE to give you an honest answer, you'd STILL find some fault with it. If it was 8/10, you'd cry over it not being 10. If it was 10/10, you'd cry about him lying or someshit.

Stop fucking pestering him! He sounds like a genuinely kind dude! What you're doing is incredibly annoying and needy and likely to push him away if you don't stop.
Besides, he's RIGHT. You don't need a fucking number. He obviously thinks you're pretty and finds you attractive or else he wouldn't be with you, and assigning it a number is dehumanizing.

Stop asking such a stupid question. He's with you because he likes you. If he didn't like you, he wouldn't be with you.
Cause you're asking him a trick question. If he answers 9.9 it's a problem if he says 10 he's lying. Don't look for problems where there aren't any.
what? do you really want your physical appearance to be rated by number? as if it was a website rating a movie or a video game? i dont understand.
I don't think that's true. I know plenty of guys who won't rate girls because they feel it is a wrong and immature thing to do.

He won't tell you because he doesn't want you to get upset if he doesn't say 10 and no one is a perfect 10 so…
I don't know why you want a number to label your appearance. Being called pretty and beautiful by him should be all you care about
In my experience, adjectives (especially the lovely ones he used) are much better than a number :)
If he said you were an 8 previously, I doubt it would have changed. I don't think he's lying and doesn't want to hurt your feelings, otherwise he wouldn't be dating you! PM me if you wanna talk about this more
I think you re overreacting and doing a drama over nthng.
he already said he finds you attractive plus he s with YOU isn t that proof enough that he s into you?
I'm with your boyfriend on this one. Ratings are stupid and unnecessary. People change in a year lol, don't think too much about it.
He already told you that your pretty and beautiful.
Why does he have to give you a number? I don't even do the dumb number scale thing, I just use words.
That's because it is an idiotic question and he is right. You can't put a number on love. Honestly, you're at fault here
