Boyfriend Is Not Good Looking

Group Therapy: Can't Get Over My Superficial Hang-ups

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I'm afraid of what people will think if I date someone who isn't very good looking, but has a great personality. There's this great guy I know who I really click with, but the only thing stopping me from wanting a relationship with him are his looks.

As much as I hate myself for this, in the back of my mind I know I would be embarrassed to introduce him to people as my boyfriend because I feel he is not attractive enough. I know this way of thinking is ridiculous — I've dated some very attractive guys who were complete jerks, and here is this good guy who treats me right but I can't just get past his appearance!

I'm sick of only caring about what's on the surface, but on the other hand it's hard not to care. I know it's immature to care so much about looks, so how do I get over this? Are looks a dealbreaker for anyone else? I feel like they are for me and I want to change that but I don't know how.
