So, I've recently started see this guy, he's great and I'm really enjoying hanging out with him. But! I'm really nervous to reveal my insecurities to him, and in particular my self consciousness about my body. I have a lot of stretch marks, on my butt, hips, thighs, etc (literally, this list goes on) and I'm worried about what he will think of them. Particularly because its the summer, which means shorts, and probably bikinis at the beach.
He's 26 and I'm 21. My body isn't in bad shape, like I actually don't mind my figure. I have a slim build that I would be completely fine with if it wasn't for the stretch marks. Should I be nervous? Should I tell him that they make me insecure? I'm not sure whether to cover them up or let them show. Opinions please!

if he genuinely likes you he won't care1

no, don't point out your weaknesses to the other. It only makes you less confident and unattractive...
Only when you're 100% sure that you love this person and he loves you regardless of your stupid stretch marks, you can be open... but even then I would recommend not telling all these things and being so vulnerable to someone else1
