I think ‘Mister’ is adorable :). My former boss used to call his partner that. Too cute Laughing.

You could use significant other or partner.

we have this conversation all the time, it seems like it’s a demotion to call each other boyfriend/girlfriend but fiance sounds so pretentious. we use it sometimes but feel slightly ridiculous when we say it.

i’m terrible i guess but ive only called my FH Fiance a FEW times. In fact a lot of people just thought he was my husband already bc I have refered to him as such. I hate the term fiance SO SO SO SO much… jut for the same reasons yall do— it sounds so stuck up.

My Fiance and I hate the terms “boyfriend” and “fiance” (I only use them on here for autonomity). When we were still living in the residence halls in college we had a friend who would only call her boyfriend “my boyfriend” never his name. This  was obnoxious and she said it possessively. After that we decided to refrain from the use of the words “boyfriend” and “girlfriend”. Since becoming engaged we like using the words “husband” and “wife” more than fiance as well (we would have eloped if it wouldn’t have been for our families). We feel like we are both individuals and the words “boyfriend”, “girlfriend”, and “fiance” don’t describe us or our relationship (that is a hard thing for my family to get around).

ahh, that makes way more sense 🙂

People who refuse to use their significant others’ name are a big pet peeve of mine, haha. I have one friend who I met through her (now) husband, and whenever she refers to him in conversation she always say, “My husband…” and I’m like, “I know his name, I’ve known him way longer than I’ve known you!” in my head. If I were a violent person, she’d be high on my “slap list” 😉

I agree. Fiance is a weird word, almost uppity! (that might just be because it’s a french word. But whatever). 

I can’t wait to call him my husband. Soon!
