Please help me be happy about my new relationship and stop nitpicking every little thing.

It's a very new relationship, 1 month old. Some background, I asked him out a year and a half ago, and he declined. A couple weeks ago he asked me out and I accepted. Great! I'm happy about that! But why can't I stop dwelling on the little things about him that I don't like? For example, he's not an awesome dresser and he makes really corny jokes. Oh, and his eyebrows are sort of out of control in a Scottish type way. This is basically it. That's what I'm freaking out about. It's mostly physical stuff and I sort of feel like maybe I'm just scared about a new relationship and commitment in general and am projecting this stuff onto him. He's super sweet and he makes no qualms over the fact that he really likes me. SO why does that freak me out?
Any insights would be much appreciated, I would love to be able to relax and just enjoy the beginning of this relationship.
