Should I care if people think of me as the motherly type?

Okay so this guy found out I liked him and he said he would never date me because I look like a grandmother. I was shocked because he always told me I look pretty. And he doesn't even know how to dress. (I don't like him anymore). Then my friends always tell me they think of me as the mother of the group. I help out at a orphanage on the weekends and the kids there tell me I am very gentle and motherly like. I have always just been a quiet person and I care about people by nature. And I usually wear dresses or something fancy. But I feel like I must be really plain or something for people to think of me as a mom. I feel offended when people say that about me and it leads me to believe that's why I don't have a boyfriend. Should I change something or let it go?
