Re: Husband, Wife, BF, GF, SO or What?

If it's a party or social atmosphere and we walk in together, I generally assume people will realize he is with me, and I just say, "This is Hubert" (to use someone else's alias).

If it is a situation such as a function I am running (which happens regularly), and I want to introduce him to people who know me but not him, I'll say "this is my boyfriend Hubert".

Basic works for me. If we are having conversations and people ask, they'll learn we live together, otherwise, do they really need to know one way or the other?

Well, you could always introduce your SO as your "only squeeze". That's pretty complimentary!

I have to admit one of the nice things about marrying your SO is how it simplifies introductions!


Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!

For the purposes of this board they could all be DHs (Dear Huberts)
