I told my friend (who was interested in me before) that I'm fat. And he says that I should
a) brag about my BIG beautiful body and take pride in who I am
b) Exercise and try to change the way I look.
He doesn't understand that I'm lamenting over how superficial and unfair society is rather he thinks that I should sacrifice everything to change my physical circumstances and that I'm somehow obligated to society to make myself more attractive.
I think he's being a jerk with this comment.

Not at all he wants you to like yourself as much as he likes you. You should count yourself lucky not many people have friends like that.
All he is saying is you should embrace your body and love yourself for who you are now or change yourself into someone you can love. He isn't even talking about other people the fact that he says option a is to be proud of being big and beautiful means he loves you just the way you are on some level.1
