I still call him SO on the internet, but he would call me FI.

Aww, my FH did that a few times before we were “ring engaged” too! It’s so sweet!

@MsW-to-MrsM:  It’s weird isn’t it!  SO has already bought the ring, it’ll be in one week from now and the plan is to give it to me by the end of the year (I really think Christmas eve – 10 days from now).  Still, I just can’t bring myself to call him my Fi until the ring is on my finger.  Heck, it’ll be weird for a while after that.  But a few days ago I was kissing his forehead and he asked what I was doing.  I replied ‘kissing my boyfriend’s face’.  He looked jokingly affronted and said boyfriend?!?! to which I replied, you’re the only one who can change that, unless you want me to call you my girlfriend. (which I found hilarious and giggled at my joke for about 20 minutes.  Obviously he wouldn’t be all that concerned with saying Fi.  I just can not do it.  I don’t know why, I just can’t.

I love hearing about men taking charge with this kind of thing! Sounds like he really loves you 🙂

@MsW-to-MrsM:  OHHHH NOOO!  The second that ring is on my finger I will never say the word boyfriend again!  I am so sick of that word.  I feel like I’m 14 every time I say it.  And I feel like people look at me funny (I’m 40 years old) and with a little pity like ‘oh, he won’t marry her, poor thing’.  So he just gets introduced as “This is Nate”.  They can figure it out from there.

Good luck to both of us!!!!!

@MsW-to-MrsM:  That’s so sweet. I was signing a witness form for a lawsuit my SO is in (he was hit by a drunk driver and is in the process of a suit) and I signed: “lovelee1”, girlfriend. I felt silly putting “girlfriend” by it, but oh well. Can’t wait until I can call him/and be called fiance.

@SomedaymrsWDS:   I also think of a juvenile relationship when I say “boyfriend”, but what can you do? I’m just extremely happy that he won’t be my boyfriend for too much longer! After over 6 years of being together, we need an upgrade to fiance status!

MsW-to-MrsM:  Apparently, my parents were “engaged” for 4 years before my dad could afford a ring! <3
