When my husband and I were dating we both chaffed against the titles "boyfriend" and "girlfriend." After some quality time with the Thesaurus and a few weeks of me calling him "my swain" and him hating it, I finally settled on calling him "my Dave" and to him I was "my Lyz." Now that we're married he has become "THE Dave" and I'm just "wife." Sigh. Lables are tricky. It goes without saying that I loved this article "Top 10 Alternatives To The Word Boyfriend." But the best part of the article was the comment by BiPolarBear who writes that she likes to call her BF her, "undocumented husband."
Hilarious. Thanks BiPolarBear.
