>>27445751>Of course I love her for who she is, she is an amazing girlfriend and we have a great relationship. It was just the pedobait aspect that was causing me guilt.
Don't feel guilty OP. You seem like a genuine guy who genuinely cares, regardless of her appearance, and that's worth something.
If you're still questioning whether or not you should talk to her about it, my further advice would be to think about what she wants in the relationship, and give her what you can as her boyfriend. She at least wants to know that you love her for who she is and will support her, neither of which require telling her. Like you've said, she probably doesn't want to have her insecurities affirmed, especially since they've come from other people already.
Getting rid of the guilt might be hard, but I'm sure the best way to do so is to focus on strengthening the other aspects of your relationship, so that you don't have to think about the pedobait thing too much. That way, you can focus on the other things you like about her instead.
Either way, it seems like you feel really bad and want to get it off your chest. It's obviously good to be open about your feelings with your partner, and I understand the feeling of needing to get the truth out there. So again, be tactful if you go through with it, and good luck.
