@With Love Whitney: You are not alone.  I’m sure if asked, many bee’s would convey that they had similiar experiences that you just did today.  What you have to remember at the end of the day, you are with the one you love.  It’s difficult to even find love.  I’m sure there are many woman out there (I know, some are my friends) that wish they could just say that they have a boyfriend and not be “single” at every event and have someone to come home to… someone to love and be their best friend.

Keep your head up, timing is different in everyones lives!

Nope your not – I even told my SO only yesterday that calling me his girlfriend made me feel like our relationship was immature.. I am a grown woman, I am not a teen, and I am in a long relationship with you – at least call me your PARTNER

@Mrs.Firefly1: i’m not waiting, nor did i, so i can’t really sympathize, but i really love what you said.  I hated being single when everyone  of my cousins were getting married or bringing their SO’s to family events.  Its so true that having a boyfriend is much better than going home alone.

Also, outside of the Bee, i rarely call him my Fiance, i still say boyfriend because i just prefer the sound of it.

You are not alone on this one. I had to say “my boyfriend” the other day and I seriously had a hard time saying it. It feels so immature and it conveys a much less serious level of commitment than I feel we have. Argh… hang in there!

When you’re both 50 it feels REALLY silly to call him your boyfriend!

Nope. I no longer call him boyfriend. I’m 30 and he’s 33, too old for boyfriend/girlfriend. I don’t care if ppl are confused if I say SO. They better learn.

Yeah..I know how you feel. I’ve been with my boyfriend for 5 years, living together for 4 and he still says we’re dating. One day though he did slip up in conversation and said “Well, that’s why I married you.” I think I may have given him the “who farted?” look.

@MsMamaBear: UGH, about the SO thing.

A while back, BluesGuy and I had decided that we’d list each other as emergency contacts, since none of us had family in the area. Flash forward to last Tuesday night, when I was in the ER, and updated my contact info. I commented to him that they had no category for “boyfriend” and simply listed him as “other”. “They don’t list significant other?” he asked.

I was good and didn’t say that he may be my “other”, but whether he’s “significant” is up in the air. For my categorization purposes, he’ll remain a boyfriend until there’s a ring and a date, at which point he’ll hit fiance/significant other.

Then again, the look on his face at the rental car counter Wednesday night when the associate asked if we were married was pretty priceless.
