I knew you'd say something like that. What am I supposed to say? "Significant other"? :lol:

...What's wrong with boyfriend/fiancé/husband these days? Why with all these gay terms?

But anyways, relationships tend to mostly be founded on possessiveness.

I was just about to say that...
I only figured out what it meant like a couple of days ago too, never seen it used before anywhere else.
The only more annoying term than that is 'hubby' regarding relationshits and whatnot, and I swear that only ever comes up in shitty housewife magazines like 'Closer'


Yeah, there should be a ban on this forum for anyone that uses it. About half the forum would be gone in a day.

I am entirely pro this idea. Alternatives allowed are boy/girlfriend, husband/wife, fiance/partner. None of this 'manthing' or 'girlspanner'* or what ever lingo you kids use.

*Being facetious aside, I think boy/girlspanner should definitely become standard langauge.

'Hubby to be' is just inefficient when there's already the term 'fiance'. It's like calling a cobbler 'the man who makes and repairs shoes'.

Listing all six standard terms in the context of the paragraph I just posted would have been overkill, though. ;)

EDIT: The term 'hubby' can go away and die.

I'm all for creativity, but all this 'boyface' shit is as creative as a Kanye West song.

Hey! Kanye West is extremely creative. He only used the chorus from that Daft Punk song for 'Stronger', he wrote every thing else himself!

For the slower amongst you, I'm lying. Kanye West is not creative. Or talented. Or a respectable human being.

I HATE the term "manthing". Just seems like people are trying to be cool by using an abstract term to describe their partner. He's your boyfriend, not a creature from the swamp ffs.

You guys are pissed about alternative words for significant others? Just wait 'til you enter the business world which is filled with incredibly shit buzzwords used by idiots trying to sound modern and clever.

Who gives a flying fuck anyways? It's hardly like it's offensive. :rolleyes:
