Many people who set their standards high secretly know they look good but want people to acknowledge it by saying so. Others just look at those teenage magazines and are jealous/insecure because it portrays girls with fake bodies and everything saying that's the only way to be happy. If your boyfriend loves you for who you are, then who gives two shits about what you look? It shouldn't fucken matter what others think anyway, who are they to say they are better if they judge you lower than them?
She quite literally asked for it. She tried to elicit flowery compliments using self-deprecation, but he didn't fall for it. I personally wouldn't respond the same way he did, but I am certainly not surprised, especially if this happens often. Also, see 24's comment.
Actually he is a pretty classy guy for being honest. He is dating her isn't he? He obviously sees something he likes in her, and apparently he has looked past her physical downfalls (if she even has them. Her feeling insecure about her body could just be completely all in her head from the get go). She attempted to manipulate him into complimenting her. She could've just said "I'm feeling insecure right now." And the conversation would've hopefully been a lot different. But instead OP decided to try to use manipulation to get what she wanted (something she probably does a lot) so it blew up in her face. Get over it. Sorry for not feeling sorry for you because your manipulative games don't work on everybody all the time.
