    My Fiance and I both dislike the term. It sounds pretentious or something. He said “You can just call me Cory…” Haha

    It’s been 4 months and I STILL can’t get used to it!! I don’t know.. maybe because he was my boyfriend for 7 years before that? I feel silly saying fiance. I only use the term if I’m he comes up in conversation with someone who doesn’t know him. I’ve been getting used to it because when I would refer to him as my boyfriend, numerous people would point to my ring and ask if I was engaged. I don’t know why they had to ask that.. it’s pretty obvious haha.

    I feel silly saying fiance. I feel like I start saying it like the woman from that early Seinfeld episode.

    Darling Husband and I disliked the term too. He couldn’t wait to start calling me wife just so he didn’t have to say fiancee

    @ladydawg86:  Gorgeous ring! I think it took me about 2 weeks to really get used to it but I still slipped up every so often for another month or two. Totally normal I think.

    Are your blue stones sapphires?

    We’ve been engaged 7 months and I still call him my boyfriend like 1/2 the time. The only time I call him Fiance is when I’m on the phone talking to some business, and even then it sounds strange.


    I love thinking the word, I love hearing the word and I love writing fiance but at the same time it’s strange for me to actually say it

    I hate the word fiance and think it sounds juvenile whenever I say it? In a professional setting I refer to him as my partner. In others, I’ve even said husband :/ (naughty!)

    However, he has introduced me to people as his fiancee, and I LOVE it! Haha its ridiculous I know, but it feels so lovely πŸ™‚

    Looking forward to being married so we can just use husband and wife πŸ™‚

    Your ring is stunning! And to actually answer your question, I HATE the word fiance…something about it makes me feel just really snobby and pretentious, like I’m bragging or something, haha! I like “husband” and “wife” much better so it’ll be much better in 5 months when I can use those! I mean, I don’t lie and I still call him my fiance, but still, sometimes I’ll slip…and even when I get it right I still feel awkward!!

    First, congratulations! Your ring is gorgeous.

    Second, I still get it wrong! Especially at work, I end up calling him my boyfriend a lot.

    Love your ring! It’s been around a year now and I still don’t use the term fiance unless it helps make sense of what I’m saying. I don’t really like the term. My SO, partner and his first name are what I call him to other people.

    I was looking forward to the new title, but in practice, it’s just weird. Neither of us say it, lol.
