My boyfriend rated me an 8 out of 10. Is that good?

I asked my boyfriend to rate me, and he said an 8 out of 10. I asked why, and he said I am not perfectly in shape yet. He's not either, we've both been working out and getting on shape because he wants to build muscle mass and I just want to tone up my stomach and butt. He said when I do this I will be a perfect 10. Lol, should I be offended that he didn't say 10 out of 10, or is that fine already? 😂 He's kind of blunt with what he says but he loves me a lot and he has proven it many times. I just don't know what to think of this, lol

  • I mean... he didn't kill the opportunity that you are a 10. I actually think he helps you with this. This motivates you to continue visiting the gym instead thinking that you're fine and being lazy.

    He would've killed it if he would've said "you're 8/10 but will never reach 10 cuz your face just isn't 10" you can't change your Face through work out. But he thinks your face has 10 potential, you're just a bit chubby, and this is something you can change.

  • My friend had a boyfriend once who told her that if she lost weight she'd be a perfect ten. He said he was glad she was fat because if she wasn't she wouldn't be with him.

    That same boyfriend raped her and threw her against a wall.

    So...

    I'd say it's not a good thing if they give you a rate and critique you like that.

    Guys are supposed to rate you a 10/10. You get a genuine rating from your female friends. Like your close ones who know not to BS you. But boyfriends are supposed to always BS you on that subject.

    • Aw that's totally fucked up. :( I don't think mine would do such a thing. This guy has helped me a lot. He payed for my therapy, and he even kissed my self harm scars.

    • @SilenRose is the only one who picked up what I was laying down :p

    • I understood too, I just didn't know how to put it.

  • Asking your guy to rate you is asking for trouble. He is either going to be honest and get blasted for that, or hi will lie and you will see through him and balst him for that. (And then not trust him after) Forget the "rating".

  • Nah he's just honest. I mean you asked for it. It's not like he was telling you this out of the blue to make you feel insecure and imperfect. Nobody is perfect, but he's just saying you will be with little tweaks which you can bring about.
    If you know he loves you, it shouldn't be a problem that he's honest with you about his likes and dislikes physically speaking.

  • That's what I've rated most of my crushes (while I was crushing on them). I'd say my current crush is a 8.5 though.
    But I don't think 10's exist.

  • if you ask him, do you want an honest rating or just him telling you what you wanna hear even if you know it's not true? an 8/10 is a very good number and if you say yourself that you have to do some toning then it's no 10/10, simple as that, unless he prefers it that way which is of course possible but rare.

    the guy can only almost only lose with these type of questions... he gave you an good but honest rating, and you should appreciate it ;)

  • Haha I think it's fine, he leaves you room to improve :D
    Read: to surprise him with even better looks!
    Next time you do something special for him in terms of outfit or make-up, ask if you'd get a nine :D

  • 1- 7 and up is good
    2- at least he'll give you a 10, some dudes don't believe anyone can be a 10.
    3- he gave it to you straight up. at least he didn't say you were a 4 or 5.

  • That's a good rating. It's never a good rating since the person is never happy with the answer. If a person dates somebody who they think is an 8, then they are pretty lucky.

  • lol i personally would never ask my guy to rate me. but anyway, i dont think u should be offended since u did ask. i think it's best to value his honesty here. and 8/10 is pretty damn good if u ask me, but again, id rather be complimented than rated.

    just remember that when ur with a blunt person, it isn't ideal to have too many expectations or else u will be disappointed.

  • Sounds as if you asked him a question and he gave you an honest answer.

    There's nothing wrong with it. At least he gave you a reason, right? And I know you were looking for a 10 and being charmed by him but you did trap him a tinsy bit. It was a bit like a test, that you sort of wanted him to lie and say "11 baby!" but another part wanted the real answer. Am I right?

    But hey. We all want to be a 10 :) I suggest if you want a 10 answer, make it a bit clearer. Like "apart from my saggy bum, and by flabby tummy, and my jiggly boobs, and my clingable love handles, I'm totes a 12/10 right babe?" That's what I do - I list all my flaws so I can only get a charming answer :D Then he's honest and I hear what I like, win win!

  • Honestly, no. I think he was being honest, loves you and obviously scored you high, but in truth so few people think anybody is PERFECT, you know? I think he's just a straight up do. Don't be offended. I think you look absolutely stunning and you kind of make me jealous. Lol.

  • The guy was honest, but you're insecure and it's messing with your feelings. You fear there is more to it, that you're not enough...
    You asked, you got your answer and you know it. This question is not you seeking answers, but emotional support. Recognize that and go seek it out from your boyfriend. Not us.

    • Also please don't take this as me saying you're insecure as if it's some flaw only you have. You're a female, I swear it comes packaged in, in that second X chromosome for all of us ladies... -_-

    • Oh I won't. Thanks for your opinion. :)

  • 8/10 is great.. but he's your boyfriend. to him you should always be a 10/10 no matter what in my opinion.

    • Is an 8 good though?

    • i guess so but when im saying is he shouldn't 'rate' u. A good response would be him telling you you are too perfect to rate or that you're beautiful no matter what.

  • No you shouldn't be offended since you asked him yourself. If you get offended you will hive the impression that you can't handle his honesty.
