Feminine Lessons- There is a lot of ambiguity that occurs when one is not married or has not had a commitment ceremony. I get asked about this a great deal…
I suggest the use of the following terms as indicators for various states in the evolution of relationship.
Yes, some of these have fallen out of use, which is part of the problem in my estimation. Since words are containers for meaning, The use of ambiguous terms tends to incline towards ambiguous states.
Ladies try these on:
Gentleman Caller- a gentleman who has expressed interest in you.
Companion- a person with whom you spend time, but no commitment to exclusivity is implied or inferred.
Beau- Boyfriend, person you are being courted by.
Fiancé- person you are engaged to.
Spouse/Partner – reserved for intentional, lifelong commitment.
