Here's a great post by NakesWithSocksOn on about the absurdity of the terms "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" when it comes to adults.
The post really resonates with me because I know so many people older than me (and I'm over 40 people) that have sweeties to whom they are not married. Calling those people "boyfriend" or "girlfriend" seems so wrong to me, especially when we're talking about my mother or grandmother. I really appreciate NWSO's eloquent treatment of the subject.
What do you think of it?
