Why's it gotta be all labelled and stuff?

This is Marc.  He snapped this pic on his phone one day when we were getting ready to go scare the ppl at the Chinese buffet... not sure why, but he did.   Anyway, this post is about him, but not really about him.  

See, I have reached an age where I don't know what to call Marc.  "Boyfriend" is just age inappropriate for two ppl who have past the age of having anything to do with boy.  Once you find yourself being called "ma'am" on a regular basis, it just doesn't work to refer to  the person you're in a relationship with as "boyfriend."  It's too little girl gigglish or something.  In any case, it just sticks in my throat.

Calling him "my man" though, doesn't sound right either.  I'm not sure what I'm opposed to with this one, actually.  It just doesn't sound right coming out of my mouth...  "This is my man, Marc."  I mean, he is a man, and a damn good one, at that.  Just sounds wrong when I say it.

Significant Other?  That's just someone else's lame ass attempt at a solution to the same problem.  Other what? And he's more than just significant... I mean I luv his silly self! So that doesn't work for me.

My boo?  Well, maybe.... 'cept he's a big dude.  And "boo" is just kinda a cute word.  Even tho I do call him Boo quite often....

Of course, there's the Phoebe from "Friends" approach.....  I'm just not sure how other ppl (including Marc) would react to me referring to him as "my lobster."

Other things that are out on the basis of sheer silliness include, but are not limited to "my baby," "my fella" and "my sweetie."  I throw up in my mouth a little just saying those things.   

So I guess I hafta settle on "Marc."  Which is fine, afterall, it's the name his mama gave him.

I feel the same way. Boyfriend is so "ugh". I am almost 36 yrs old. I have no business referring to any man that gets to see my draws as a "boyfriend". I'd rather just call him by his name. Makes it easier on me. The rest of the world can just figure it out.

I have to agree with PBG. There's really nothing else that speaks to the situation. Unless you wanted to be sarcastic, in which case you could call him either a "gentleman friend" or "suitor" both of which make me giggle.
