I have low confidence around my boyfriend & I feel awkward. What can I do?

Anonymous
Hi guys I'm a pretty shy girl & I started dating a guy who is way out of my league, at least I feel like. I'm normally really confident but when I get around this guy I just melt. I had sort of a weird childhood where I just didn't have a good time socially in high school, so anyone I perceive as more "popular" than me just seems like sort of a threat or I feel inferior. So that's why I am so shocked that he picked me. He is significantly more popular/different than I am but I'm trying to get to know him.

He's told me I'm beautiful I just feel super shy around him at many times & my confidence is still not up to par. How can I get this image out of my head? That I am "unequal" to him? I want to be myself/equals on same level, & be able to reach out/touch him/act normal. How can I get over this, is it normal, & what do I do? Why do I feel so strange around him, like I am just "stiff" or can't move or at all?

He's hella attractive, & I consider myself beautiful in my own way, I just don't know why I'm acting so stiff & can't be myself. I'm normally really funny but I'm really quiet around him & it sort of sucks lol. Any help is appreciated.
