Not Physically Attracted to Boyfriend

Group Therapy: I'm Not Physically Attracted to My Boyfriend

To cut straight to the point — I don't find my boyfriend physically attractive. On the other hand, I don't find him unattractive, and he certainly has features I like. I love his smile and I often find him cute, but I just don't have that objective attraction to him. To put it simply, he's not my type. If I didn't know him, I wouldn't pick him out of a crowd. He just doesn't have some of the features I've always looked for in a man (superficial things — like pecs and biceps).

However, we still have an amazing sex life. And I'm quick to initiate and participate.

Most of the time I think I'm just being wayyy too over analytical. It's really not something that is affecting our relationship. Normally this isn't something I would spend too much time thinking about. I have a feeling I might be now because he continually compliments me on my appearance and face and body. He's attracted to every part of me. And it makes me wonder if I should feel the same way. Thoughts on this?
