Most Helpful Guy
If he likes you/ loves despite all of that stuff you wrote about, then you aren't holding him back. It's more than just "his choice." His choice sounds almost like a burden. That is incorrect. If he truly loves you, he doesn't even see that stuff. Literally. If however, he has been dropping hints that he feels these things are wrong with you, that either needs to be confronted, because he may not be aware of his actions per se, or if it's very direct, I'd call that downright mean and disrespectful.
