So today my boyfriend told me I have hairy boobs.
I said no I don’t and he insisted “yes you do, look!” and I haven’t even noticed before but now I can see that there are a few light hairs in that flat area between my boobs.
I have always been comfortable wearing low-neck shirts and dresses with cleavage and have always received compliments, but now I know I’m always going to feel self-conscious about it.
So my question is how do I deal with this?
I was really embarrassed and hurt when he said this, so I pretty much locked myself to my room and have been crying.
He already apologized, but I still can’t help but feel angry at him for making me feel like this..I'm sure there are lots of things I could say to him that would make him insecure but I never would. As a woman you already feel self-conscious about looking good..and now I have something else to worry about thanks to him.
Am I being very silly? How am I supposed to deal with this(him)? Is it justified of me to be angry at him?
(before anyone suggests shaving, I would not, as there are only a few, light hairs and shaving would make them thicker and darker and I don’t want to be that superficial)

you're wrong all around.
-you shouldn't be angry at him,he didn't say ''eww that's so disgusting'' he just said something without thinking,he didn't mean to insult you.
-what he said might have hurt you,but he didn't mean it that way,don't start bringing up his flaws to get even,i know you said ''i never would'',but you're already thinking about them and once you get angry,you'll start saying things that'll hurt him.
-shaving won't make them grow thicker or darker,it's just that once you lose hair,you start seeing it as more hair once it grows back,but it's all in your head.1
