Well, he stated I have competion from a girl he knows and he's saying she's so perfect blah blah she's a 10 Princess. My new goal is to get hot that he can't refuse me and will reject her. I don't care if he's known her longer and his family thinks she's so great. I'm gonna get extensions, my tummy fat is going away, I'm getting sexier and confident and guys do stop and stare at me. If he doesn't choose when I'm done changing, I'll make him regret it. I'm not changing just for him anymore, I'm doing it for myself!
Nuke summarizes your strange and obsessive relationship paradigm concisely - two things are apparent here:
1: If your guy is telling you there's competition, you've picked a loser here, folks.
2: More importantly, your singular focus on your crush is scary and offputting, and the fact that it rules your life and literally drives you crazy (that's what the above paragraph is - crazy) is probably why your relationship is plagued by seemingly childish issues, like making each other jealous and pitching crazy fits because your self-worth is directly tied to the success of your relationship.
I used the word "crazy" three times before this sentence - this isn't a lack of vocabulary diversity on my part, but a blunt description of your view on relationships and who you are relative to said relationship. My advice is the same as many other posters - forget the relationship (dude sounds like a dickbag anyway) and focus on the things that make you feel happy and complete as a person, because believe it or not, you don't require someone else to make you whole - in fact, relationships usually don't really work UNLESS both parties aren't solely reliant on their SO for their self-image.
I understand the drive to better oneself when love seems to be running out the door at light-speed - the first things that came to mind when the ex-GF left with the kid were plans to drag my ass out of my miserable hole, gain financial solvency, and bring my family back to a new, more secure life. Naturally, that never happened, because life doesn't really work that way - all you can do is improve your life for your own reasons, because you're the only one who truly gets the chance to enjoy those improvements...but only if you do it for yourself. Externalizing your happiness by depending on another person for self-improvement only guarantees failure in the long run.
