Are you a newly engaged GTA fiance?
Let’s talk about it.
Okay, this is going to be short and sweet … Can we have a quick conversation about the term ‘fiance’? The more and more people I talk to say the same thing: they feel weird using the word. Maybe it’s the people I’m talking to or maybe it just is.
I was engaged for a total of 19 months and I can tell you I called Anthony my ‘fiancé’ to only a handful of people. Those handful of people … mostly mere strangers. I cannot count the number of times my friends used it for me though. I guess that’s what they’re there for. Shoutout #kandiscrew. I always felt uncomfortable using the term with friends and family, but pretty proud otherwise.
Now correct me if I’m wrong:
Although the term feels a bit weird to use, it’s the only one set for this stage in the relationship. At this point, your partner is way more to you than a boyfriend/girlfriend but not quite yet your husband/wife. So how do you communicate that to people without feeling like a knob?
I know it’s JUST a word, but if you’ve got the answer, a solution, or a term you used during your engagement, please share. There are many fiance’s out there wondering.
