So me and my girlfriend are VERY close and intimate and she always jokes how I am so ripped and she's just isn't built at all. I remind that I LOVE her body, she's a dancer (Ballet/Modern) and has curves and a wonderful shape so I don't need her to be ripped but she sometimes comes off as feeling bad that her body can't be 'perfect' for me- Which it is. So I know a lot of females are self conscious about their bodies, but what ELSE can I do to remind her how her body amazes me EACH time I see her?
It always reminds me of that scene in "Crazy Stupid Love" when she told him to take his shirt off and she's like, "Really?! You look Photoshoped!" Haha, so yeah- any advice? Thanks!

Dancers are the absolute most critical on their bodies even when they have some of the best bodies around. It comes with the territory, always around women with awesome bodies and the industry expecting you to look a keep a certain weight.
You may find that she will never be satisfied with her body and will at least for the foreseeable future need that constant affirmation. The question is, are you okay with always having to tell her these things. You may not think she's hearing it, but she might say those things about herself just to hear you say it.
I say, continue to say it, if you love her enough not to feel like a broken record. Eventually she'll at least believe that you do think she's perfect, even if she doesn't believe it for herself. Those abs of your can be a little intimidating.
I wish you luck in love.1
