He doesn't want anyone to know we're dating?

Anonymous
I started dating a guy just as friends with benefits, then it got exclusive between us. We have been for 5 months the friends with benefits and exclusiveness. He recently told me that he loves me as a person, that he likes the way that I make him feel and that he enjoys the sex, but that he doesn't want anyone to know or go out publicly. His roommate knows me, inevitably, but he hides me from anyone that might come to the house or his friends. We see each other every night and I always sleep over. We have personal and profound conversations, and sometimes we don't have sex just watch movies together. I never dreamed of him telling me that he loves me as a person or that he likes the way I make him feel because looks don't matter (Im on the curvy side and he's really skinny). But he mentioned that he cares too much about what other people think. It makes me feel like he's ashamed or embarrassed of me, or is it his problem? Should I be patient with him? Or should step away from the relationship? And by the way, Im the kind that gives chances and thinks the best of people. Im way to kind :I
