    Introducing your SO...

    Advertisements
    When your significant other introduces you (or visa versa), how do they refer to you (and likewise)?

    Last night, DB's sister threw a mini going-away get-together for him, and he introduced me to his friends as, "the girlfriend" rather than "my girlfriend". Makes no difference to me either way.

    Edit: I just introduce him as "my boyfriend".

    That's kinda cute! I thiiiink he introduces me as "my girlfriend". I did most of the introducing when he was here, he doesn't really have many friends. And it's been so long since I met them that I can't remember! But when we went on vacation to his Grandpa's wedding his mom did all of the introducing, and I was, "Sean's girlfriend, who is awesome!" Which I like

    I introduce him as my boyfriend.

    "This is my wife". He doesn't really have much choice

    Just this is "Candice" most people know who Candice is so he doesn't have to specify I'm the wife.

    If its guys from work he will say "this is the wife" usually. Other times "this is my wife Samantha" sometimes he throws "awesome" in there

    He says "this is my fiancé". Pretty straightforward.

    "This is my wife, Aly." I don't know how else he would introduce me.

    Usually he just introduces me by name. By the time I meet someone he knows, they usually already know who I am. If it's someone he doesn't really talk to or doesn't know, he'll introduce me as his wife.

    My husband usually will say "This is my wife Holly" but I know he refers to me when talking to people saying "I have to call the wife and ask"
