Hey board: This has been bugging me since yesterday.....My SO, whom I've been with for years and trust and love, said that he does not think I'm the most beautiful person he's ever seen.

I guess I don't think that is a fair question to ask your SO, there was no way for him to answer successfully. It is like saying, "Honey, do I look fat in this?" Yes, if you are overweight, you look fat - period!
I figure there are 7 million people in the world, many are pretty darn good looking, many are not by our American standards. But the key is that my DH and I are a great fit. It is his mind that attracted me to him and him to me. We talk for HOURS, we cuddle endlessly, we totally enjoy being together and making one another happy.
And now that I am approaching 50, I have wrinkles, I am not as perky and I sag in places you don't want to know. But he loves the person inside, not the package outside.
The key is to be healthy and love yourself for who you are, not expecting others to validate you!

Your feelings are reasonable, but you also asked a question that was a bit unfair to your SO.
