A male reader is in the doghouse because of the way he introduced his woman to a co-worker. He didn’t specifically say that she was his girlfriend and it has caused her to question his motives.
I’m not one to get hung up on titles personally because I’m more concerned about behavior and actions. Does it matter that a man calls me his woman? Not really. I’ll admit that the guy could probably make me swoon inside and feel like a school-girl. I don’t know if it would matter much beyond that.
If you are dating and haven’t reached the exclusive stage, does it matter that you don’t have the label yet?
Would you introduce your date as your partner, significant other if you two haven’t had “The Talk” yet?
