Alright. So this has annoyed me so much over the past few months I just need to make a ranting post about it.
People need to fucking learn when or when not to refer to their significant other as their boyfriend/girlfriend. I am so fucking sick and tired of seeing people refer to them as "my boyfriend/girlfriend" when the people they are talking to already know who they are! What is the point? Just to brag that this person is your boyfriend/girlfriend? Pretty pitiful if you ask me. And actually, for me personally, I've not seen any guys doing this; it's only girls in my experience.
Proper use of this term would be to strangers of friends who don't know of this person. Then comes a process of changing that from "my boyfriend/girlfriend" to their actual name. After that, there's no going back with it! Then why do these people insist on still referring to them as the status? It's almost as if they care more about this status than the person themselves which is very sad.
I guess deep down what bothers me is the bragging nature it comes off as. Like there's some sort of competition of spouses that you need to up your ranking in. Like, "lol my pikachu has better IVs than yours". And I guess it makes that person come off as a very elite sounding person if they feel the need to put the status of this person above their own name when the person or people they're talking to know full well of this person already.
I've been having to put up with this for the past few months now and it's not stopped yet so I just had to put it here. Knock it the fuck off. Please.
