I've been in a strong, steady relationship for two years. We have never broken up, and our relationship is pretty much excellent: we have great communication, we both teach each other things about life and our experiences, and we try our best to be the best partner for eachother. It has worked.
You do compare because you're the one he chooses to stay with. He's happy with the way you are and is so sure of his assessment of you that he can look at you realistically and present both sides of your appearance. This balance of his views of your body is overshadowed only by a deep fondness and appreciation for you.
