Subject: I Don’t Like His Features

Dear Steve and Shirley, I’m a 41 year old beautiful woman with a lot going for myself. I modeled underwear when I was in my 20s and I still have the body to prove it. When I usually meet men, it’s because they comment on my body or my looks. I finally met this great guy that isn’t shallow and he’s taking his time to get to know me. He’s 44 years old and he’s 6’4” with big brown eyes. He’s not my usual type because he’s not that handsome, but I decided it’s time to try something different. Kissing him at first was awkward because he has a long, pointed nose, but I learned how to work around it. We discussed hygiene early on and he must’ve heard me loud and clear because he started to groom his beard and his mustache better. He wears baggy sweats a lot when he’s out and about. When we go out, he’s in jeans and a long button front shirt. I told him he dresses like a teenager and he said that I could not change everything about him, so I let it go. Then I realized why he dresses like that and I was disgusted. After six months of dating, we went on an anniversary trip and I decided this was the perfect time to have sex for the first time. I had never seen him with his shirt off or anything. When he took off his baggy sweats, all I saw was hips and a big booty! He has a six pack, small waist, and hips curvier than mine. I could tell he was ashamed so I tried to act like it wasn’t a big deal. It was so hard to be intimate with him and he could tell that my vibe was off. The facial features are fine, but the hips and booty sent me over the edge. I already know my girls are going to flip out if they find out. I know nobody’s perfect but this is a lot! Would I be shallow to dump him because of his features?
