How do you deal with your partner’s body issues?
Some people feel insecure about their bodies, especially when they are around their partners.
They often say they wish their bodies looked in a certain way, which is likely to kill their self-esteem and self-confidence.
On the other hand, some people are confident enough about their bodies regardless of how they look, and their partners accept them as well.

I always thought body issues, were only women’s issue. But recently in a partnership, my partner would talk about it.— Akhona - Caller
There are other qualities that complement that type of the body.— Johannes - Caller

@Azania_ I don't mind if it's medical issue but I don't want someone who doesn't care at all about their body— Kanego (@KanegoRantho) June 8, 2017
