Getting over my insecurity?

In all honesty I am a pretty hairy guy. I have hairy arms, legs, armpits, and torso. I am used to it by now, have never shaved those areas, but I just can't help but feel insecure. I am 16 and one of the hairiest guy I know. My girlfriend doesn't mind, but she still makes jokes from time to time. My friends and dad joke around about it too, and I normally don't care, but recently my hairiness has started to bother me. I went swimming with my SO yesterday and I was terrified of raising my arms because then she would see my hairy armpits. I felt so embarrassed getting out of the water because it made my pale blond hair really obvious.
How can I get over this?

  • Your girlfriend doesn't mind so it can't be that bad - Stick with it for a while and if it remains a problem think about hair removal
