My NEW boyfriend texts me the other day, trying to figure out the plans for when I'm going to see him. He is stationed on an Army base about an hour away from me. I asked him if it would just be easier if he picked me up after my class. He said, "Sure, I can pick you up from school and don't worry about being pretty." I paused .. Waited a bit then responded with, "You're supposed to think I'm pretty everyday." He tried to dig his way out of that one. I let it slide.
I then tell him that I feel as if I'm getting fat (I'm pregnant) and I don't feel pretty anymore, that I'm worried he won't find me attractive anymore. His response. "I'm not with you for your looks Audrey, doesn't matter if you get fat and ugly." I ASSUME he was trying to be sweet, but that really hurt! Am I the only one who sees that as being rude to an extent? I didn't say anything because I'm guessing I'm just hormonal, but my God, I just wanted him to tell him that I'm pretty and that I have nothing to worry about. A little self-esteem boost perhaps? *sigh*
