General Dating Questions/body hair


I hope you can answer this question,
My boyfriend and I have been together for a few weeks and so far it is going really well. I am 18 and he is 17. However I've had one problem about myself that I can't stop thinking about. Due to my genetics/middle eastern background, I am somewhat hairy, specifically on my arms, stomach, lower back and buttocks. It is dark and noticeable, and "more than normal" however I don't have a hormonal problem or anything. He doesn't know because I always wear long sleeves or I shave my arms or hide it etc. I don't think I want to remove my hair at all; I want to be able to accept myself, especially since hair removal can be expensive and tedious. I'm just afraid of what he will think. I know that he prefers hairlessness on female bodies because a couple months ago before we were together and we were just friends, it came up in a casual conversation.

So I don't know what to do, I am afraid of getting physically intimate due to this. Any advice?


I personally have never met a woman who has air on her stomach, lower back or buttocks. I can imagine how it would be a serious turn-off, but that really is very personal. I would suggest you see a specialist (male) and ask him what options you have for removing it that are less painful and less expensive.
