I know this is very immature of mt but I really do struggle with my looks. My SO ex is beyond prettier than I am. One of mutual friends commented on her pic and said she was one of the most gorgeous girls she's ever seen. That really bothered me. Ive decided to stop eating. Iknow I wont change the way I look but, maybe it will help.

Your SO wouldn't be with you if he didn't find you attractive. YOU have him now, YOU are better than her. Don't stop eating so you can compete with her looks. Everyone is beautiful in your own way... and there's obviously something about you that he's attracted to.

I struggle with my looks... SO is attracted to small girls and I'm far from that. But there are a few things he is attracted to, so I thrive on that.

Don't stop eating. That will make the issue worse in the long run. Just start eating healthier.

Don't stop eating. Seriously. I've been in a similar situation before and it does not help at all. You'll only feel miles worse. I ended up looking like a hollow, skeleton type person + I wasn't happy at all. I've since learned to love my curves + love the person that I am. My BD was with some stunners before me + I was always self conscious when we got together. When I finally told him what I was feeling he was pure shocked. He was like WTF are you talking about??? You're gorgeous, they aren't a patch on you! Did you talk to your SO about it? It's you he's with remember, not her. If you need someone to talk to please feel free to pm me. Please don't starve yourself!

its just he said that she was probably the prettiest girl he'sever been with.He wasn't trying to be rude or anything. As far as their relationship goes he's the one who messed up and he admits that.
