How to forget my flaws?
Hi Doc,
There is this guy I have been seeing for a while, which I am crazy about and he is really into me too. We want to make love and have been talking about it for a while now. I really want to, but I have a physical flaw that is holding me back. I have asymmetrical boobs, which means the one is considerably bigger that the other. I so want to be with him, but he is very well build and I don’t want to disappoint him because he thinks I am perfect. I never told him.

How can I overcome this? Please help!!!

Many people are similarly over-sensitive about normal variations in their bodies, and the problem, of course, is caused by the hypersensitivity and worrying, rather than by the physical aspects that you're worrying about. Actually few women have perfectly symnmetrical boobs ( just as men are often similarly lop-sided ) --- and it really doesn't matter to almost anyone else on earth, so long as you re not worried about it/ I'm sure that the "perfection" he thinks about you is about your personality, not your precise physical dimensions. CBT counselling could help you to rapidly get rid of this concern, and gain in self-confidence.
