Married now, so of course husband. But if dating I think I would call the exclusive person "my guy" or "my man". I like "Number 1" too ;).

I introduce him as my husband but when we're talking to each other I refer to him as "my love" and he refers to me as "my angel"

I pretty much stick to boyfriend now, but earlier on, I was really into "gentleman friend." Sometimes I also call him the houseboy.

When we started dating and he wasn't officially my boyfriend, I called him my man piece. It kind of stuck so my friends refer to him that way. Formally though, I introduce him as my boyfriend.

I call him Schatzi when we're together and when I talk about him it's either boyfriend oder husband. Sometimes boyfriend just doesn't seem to cut it when talking to strangers...we have been together for some time, have a kid, share a house...the guy I dated for four months when I was 15 was also my boyfriend...I just want to make clear that we are in a committed long-time relationship.

Usually partner, or boyfriend. Boyfriend doesn't really fit though, I feel a bit old to say it.

To him? I call him "habibi" which means my lover/sweetheart in Arabic. But to other people, my husband.

I call him my man friend. He is far too old to be a boy (friend). I also insist that he call me his lady friend, because its classy.

My pet. :P Or the boyf! It's so fun to say, lol.. and it fits him strangely well. But other than that, just the standard 'boyfriend' (though he's anything but). :)

Everything I love has multiple nicknames, the last boyfriend of 4 years was Babycakes. He called me Starflower. Boyfriend is the title he gets for other people though.
