My girlfriend has really low self-esteem and confidence. We’re very open in our relationship, and she’s told me that this is the reason why she can be very insecure sometimes too. Well, I recently landed a gig doing some high fashion photo shoots for a local magazine. I’m a photographer, so I spend a decent amount of time at work being around Colombian, Lima, Australian, Kiev, and even Thai ladies who are models.

This has only made her more insecure and since she gained a lot of weight lately, I know she’s been feeling really down with her self-image. How do I help her feel better about herself? She’s a beautiful woman and I don’t care about how much she weighs and all the other physical stuff. All that doesn’t matter because I love her, but I don’t just don’t think it’s enough for her anymore.

First off, I think you're being a great boyfriend reaching out for help. You do definitely care about her.

I presume you have been reassuring her over and over again? Are you quite romantic and intimate?

She sounds very insecure and you need to somehow try your best to make her aware that you really like her and that she has nothing to worry about!

Another question is 'why' is she insecure? Does she have any reasons to be?

By the way, I have requested for an update of the title of the topic, to be more descriptive, let's hope you get some answers.

It has been changed to 'How do I improve my girlfriend's self-esteem and confidence?'.

I think just be active in outdoor sports and travel a lot will help her.  You should do that as a couple and protect her.  There are a lot of group of travelers who looking for joiners to travel with them, and you should join them.  By doing this, your girlfriend will establish a good self-esteem and will know how to communicate well with new people, but you should guide her, and be sure you're always beside her.

I agree with what you said. It's helpful to go on trips and explore places. Opportunities will come as you go. So stuff will happen and she will naturally grow her confidence through friendship and new experiences.

The question is if she knows that she has a low self esteem because it's the only way you can be able to offer any form of help to her. One have to agree there is a problem before he or she will agree to any correction therapy.

It's very bad when one feels insecure, it affects everyone around them especially the one he or she is in a relationship with. If you can afford seeing a psychologist and have some session with an expert, I'm sure it's going to be fruitful.

That's very helpful. It's not an easy conversation. But if she's willing, she could get help from therapists. I've also found it helpful talking to someone. We need time to shed these flaws of insecurities and stuff like that. So give her time and she'll grow to appreciate herself more.

I think invite her out and do some active activity outside. To make your girlfriend have confidence. Mingling with your friends also is good.
