Have you discussed a timeline? That might help you get through the next few “girlfriend” comments. 
FH and I have been engaged for 9 months and are getting married in March and we still say boyfriend/girlfriend all the time, haha. It seems like it’s the engagement (or lack there of) that’s irritating you more than the word.

queensav :  Enjoy girlfriend status! I get that you’re ready for him to put a ring on it but if your relationship is progressing towards that you have a limited time of being a “girlfriend”. Personally, I hated being called a “fiance” it sounds way too posh. I would have been happy to go from girlfriend to wife with no in betweens.

Although I was never angry over being called girlfriend, I understand what you mean. There was a time when fh introduced me as his girlfriend and it always made me so happy and proud. After a while I just felt like we were so much more than boyfriend/girlfriend, but he’s always been very clear with his timeline for me and he’s definitely a man of his word. Luckily, we always seem to be on the same page and that just makes things easier. Right now I am enjoying being called fiancée but I seriously can’t wait to hear the word wife. Try to enjoy each moment and title as it comes, fiancée will come and go before you know it.

queensav :  I felt the same way before we got engaged. Fiance had the ring for 3 months but it seriously felt like at least 6. Which is a long ass time to be resenting the “girlfriend” title. It felt elementary to me, if that makes sense. 

I’m with PP; have you had the timeline talk? That’s kind of a big deal and my Fiance actually ended up being 2 months earlier than the deadline he told me he had.

Me and my SO just had this talk yesterday after getting engaged on Valentines Day. He asked if he could call me wife yet lol. I told him anything is better than hearing girlfriend.

It sounds like you’re more upset about not being engaged. Also wondering along with PP’s if you’ve had a direct talk about timelines?

twentytwentybride :  This isn’t even a crazy drama-filled thread, what’s your point? Everyone is going to be new at some point.
