Not Physically Attracted to My Boyfriend

"I'm Not Physically Attracted to My Boyfriend"

This week's confession comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Weigh in with your advice below.

I have been going out with my boyfriend for a while now, and things are going quite well. Emotionally we are a great match, he is everything I have wanted in a man, though I have always been troubled with the idea that I'm not physically attracted to him. Though this does not at all affect our physical relationship which I enjoy very much, I cannot help but wonder about the importance of physical attraction in a relationship. It's not that he's unattractive by any means, but I have many social problems one of which I am extremely wary of other people and what they think of me. I am working hard at helping this problem, but it means that in public I am quite aware of how other people perceive my relationship. I feel like a right bitch for thinking this way and I wish I could change it but it has made me question this issue of physical attraction. I have always been a firm believer in the fact that looks meaning nothing in a relationship (perhaps due to the fact my favorite book is Jane Eyre) but now that I'm in the situation I find myself very confused.

Should my lack of physical attraction be a factor considered? Or should I continue with my relationship with my boyfriend who I am slowly falling for?

There's lots of cool stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups, and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!
