I'm with a girl, we hang out, we sleep together, but she doesn't say im her boyfriend, she says im her 'partner', what the shit does that mean?
when someone says "partner" I immediately think its a homosexual relationship, maybe she's trying to make people think you're just a very butch lesbian so she can score fringe points
she smiled? it was kind of a sad/sympathetic smile? She knows i like that label, she did just get out of a VERY long term relationship (i think it blew up because of me among other things), we've been going out for about a month or so, slept together for the first time this weekend
It shouldn't stress me out, but it does a bit.
really depends--could be a synonym for b/f deal if she's a feminist type. Alternatively it could mean that she's fucking other guys and you're just her favorite fwb--like a long term potential fwb or something kek
it means she wants to marry you, dufus
ask her. it could mean anything.
a lot of people think that homosexuals use the term 'partner' for a gay reference, but its not quite that. the thing about dating the same sex is that it sets a sense of equality to you. not that your bf is someone who takes care of you, or you of him, or anyone owns anyone or helps anyone.
a partnership is like having a best friend that you've sworn yourself to. it implies you are true equals and that there is a bond deeper than romance, you got each others backs.
or she might just nto be very committtal. ask her.
