Help! I want to cut my hair short but my boyfriend is disapproving, yet saying do as I please?

I want to cut my hair into a pic cut, very badly... my boyfriend of over a year doesn't like the idea of it, he tells me he will love me either way, but says he honestly wishes I would grow it out to the length it used to be (down to my butt) before we dated. my hair is just above my shoulders since I grew out an old short haircut, that was a side shave with chin length hair, and he didn't seem... thrilled... when I showed up to a date with that haircut, and is acting better now that it's grown out, but is now freaking out when I mention I wanna cut it short again. over text, he acts totally fine with it, but in person he gets all distressed and begs me not to. I know I should just do what I want and if he doesn't like it and leaves me (though I doubt that he would...) he's not worth it, etc. he understands my opinion on that. but I'm also one to want to keep him happy, and mine, and think I'm attractive, etc... help? I'm so lost on what to do... should I just go my own way? or let my hair grow...

  • Relationships are about compromises. Maybe not grow your hair to your butt, but out to your shoulders. It's not like he's asking for you to completely change your personality, he's just asking to not look less attractive to him. You would probably expect the same out of him.

  • Do what you want!!! Like Jesus Christ who gets upset about their partner doing what they want with their OWN body? It's HAIR.

    If he can't handle you doing what YOU want with YOUR hair what else can he not handle you doing on your own. Seriously OP this is beyond ridiculous that he would even have an opinion on what YOU do with YOUR body.

  • He'll find you attractive but just not as attractive as he used to. After a while of getting used to it he'll forget about it.

  • My boyfriend prefers me to have brown hair. I bleached it blonde. He tells me he thinks I'm beautiful not matter what but I'm most beautiful when I'm a brunette. It kinda hurts to hear him practically saying "you're pretty but you used to be much prettier" Ultimatly though it's about me and what I wanted and I was tired of my hair being dark.

  • From experience: a boyfriend used to love my long hair... he said long was beautiful. My uncles who is my hairstylist said I needed to cut of damage part of hair to start growing healthy long hair. my hair ended up being short a bit above shoulders. He said short or long ghetto would be happy as long as I was... but in reality I noticed him being a bit different more apart. We wouldn't argue much, we were good, until he finally mentioned he missed my long hair... not saying every guy is like that but that's what happened to me
