You should stay in the relationship.
You were the one who asked her to describe what she likes about you and she decided to go even further than that in letting you know what she doesn’t like.
Not everyone gets into a relationship with another person primarily due to looks.
There are some people who will put certain qualities above others.
In her case, she puts your personality above looks.
If you have a healthy sex life with her and she doesn’t shy away from showing you physical affection, she is clearly attracted to you.
Her liking you more for your personality than your looks may actually work in your favor.
Looks do fade with time but personality can get even stronger with time as you learn and mature as a person.
You may be coming at this from your own way of thinking. Perhaps you cannot imagine being in a relationship with someone whose looks weren’t up to par.
However, she is not you. So try not to think for her.
Now, if you can’t get over the fact that she doesn’t believe that you match her ideal dream guy in terms of physical attributes, it may be best for you to leave this relationship.
If you were to stay, you would keep feeling insecure in the relationship and acting accordingly.
This would affect your relationship tremendously because she will sense this change in behavior and that will start making her wonder whether there is something wrong with her.
However, if you are able to accept her reasoning and understand that she is a person who is able to put personality above looks, you should stay on.
