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?
