So if you follow my random posts on Facebook at all, you’ll know my partner (er, girlfriend?) chimes in almost every time I mention her, to shout from the roof tops that she’s my GIRLFRIEND not my PARTNER. :)
She says “partner” sounds like “business partner”, and not as serious as an actual relationship. Every time I say partner, she rolls her eyes, or gets all Hulk like:
I say “partner” sounds more serious than “girlfriend”, because “girlfriend” could mean like… we’ve been together for 2 weeks or something. It doesn’t sound as REAL to me.
(That us, on the left!)
We’ve been together for almost 4 years, and yes we are engaged but if I say “fiance”, then people automatically assume I’m talking about a man – so to avoid that mess, I would prefer “partner”. She prefers girlfriend.
Warning: If you agree with her, she will gloat… and dance just like THIS ^^
And then I’ll be like THIS ^^
So, which do YOU think sounds right? Help us decide!!
*P.S.* This is just a playful debate, don’t give me crap about how we shouldn’t get married if we can’t decide on something so simple. ;)
