Dealing with Body Dysmorphia and Relationships
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

I have been suffering from Body Dysmorphia and have recently come to terms with it. I have crooked teeth, I was obese, acne all over my face and have been bullied and made fun of all my life. I have never been in a relationship till this day. I always feel like I am not good enough. I recently confessed to a girl whom I had immense feelings for since a couple of years. She also reciprocated the same thing. We aren't dating but I feel very insecure about losing her to a guy who looks better than me. She made it clear but I do have breakdowns at times. And it always leads us to us drifting apart for a while. I am not sure what to do? I love her alot but I feel like I might loose her at some point because of my anxiety. She has said that we would hold up on the relationship for a while as she herself is dealing with a few things. I do agree and have told her to take her time. But in the meanwhile I am scared that a better guy might come along and Ill end up all alone.
