My boyfriend is always worried about his weight and says I'm too good for him. I am older than him so I dont know if its a phase he still going through were he cares about what everybody thinks of him. I like him a lot and it gets annoying hearing him saying "I'm fat", constantly and nothing I do makes him feel better. He is super shy he really doesnt have any friends and only talks to me. I really don't understand why he is always worried about his looks. I think is social media telling him how he suppose to look. He 5'9 and weighs 230 and says he wannts to lose wieght. I tell him go for it if it's what he wants. I like how he looks already his perfect to me. So I just want to know if anybody else has this problem with their partner in their relationship.

I think it's normal to have some form of insecurity, but this seems a little excessive. Just make sure you let him know you love him and if you can, see if you can convince him to see a therapist. Just support him and let him know you're there.

Speaking from experience, it's incredibly hard to convince someone they're good enough when they have such low self esteem. All you can do is reassure him and love him and be there for him. Make sure you take care of yourself as well. I agree with ImGonnaKate. Seeing a therapist could help him. Good luck
