So I am dating this guy that graduated two years before me back in high school, now that we are 20 (me) and 22 (him) we kind of met up and started talking. During high school he dated 3 different girls that were pretty active and popular/rich like he was. He isn't extremely fit but he is very active and his entire family is too. He is also very well-off. I, on the other hand, was never really part of the popular crowd and have always been rather poor. On top of that, I have been struggling with diabetes/weight problems since I was in kinder and am about 40 pounds overweight. I am not obese but I am farrr from fit. He has been nothing but nice to me and it all seems like a dream. We have been dating for about 3 weeks now and it just all seems so perfect, but I am afraid that when truths start coming out (like our friends being different, maybe his family not liking that me and my mom are poor, or just thinking he can do "better"), then it is all going to hurt so much. I typically run away from guys that seem as perfect with him, but he makes me so happy that I am scared to both hold on and let go lol. I have already started trying to lose more weight, I go to school and have a job. He says that I am pretty and I of course will respect his family when it comes time but it's just hard to accept that he actually likes me. I feel like something is going to wrong very soon or I am just filling a void for some other girl that may not like him right now. Any advice or comments?

Stop being scared. He wouldn't be dating you if he found you unattractive. Just go with it. Deal with the problems as they come up (if they come up at all).
It's kinda sad that so many people have an inferiority complex. There's probably a very good reason why he's dating a girl like you versus the super pretty/popular/rich girls that you saw in high school... you get points for all your correct answers.2
