Is it a sign of low self esteem if I feel this way?
My boyfriend and I have dated since Senior in High school. He's always been sort of a mild 'ladies man' and it's honestly never really bothered me. I actually found it quite nice that he was so kind and sweet. But lately he's been showing a more ugly side of himself. He stares at women constantly, no matter where we are and he does it right in front of me. He even points out women to me and tells me that's what a woman should look like. I have a really attractive friend who he's always going on and on about, and I actually feel jealous because we are complete opposites. I'm 5'3 and she's 5'9. I'm 106lbs and she's 180lbs. She has long straight hair and I have big curly hair. It's odd because I've never before felt like there was anything wrong with how I looked, now I just want to stay hidden all day. I feel horrible. He's usually really good at listening to how I feel, but when I tried to talk to him this time, he brushed me off and said that it's disgusting that my self-esteem is so low. It was like being punched in the stomach, but could he be right?
