maybe this is no longer relevant, but Anneintherain (oh how I love your username!) I did want to respond to this. You know English is not my native language right? In my own language I have a word for both my guys (the ones I'm not married to ) that perfectly describes what position they have in my life. I suppose ' lovers' would be the best translation, but in English, this seems too casual to me. They are definitely not casual relationships. So that's why on the forum I always seem to have to decide between lover and boyfriend.

I recently saw someone use 'loves' and perhaps that is what I will use from now on when writing in English about them. I love them both, even though they hold very different positions in my life.

In fact, I think I will go and update my sig line now
Cleo - forties straight female
Ren - husband of 20 years
Bo - BF of 1+ year
Lou & Jane - Ren's girlfriends
Lin - Bo's other GF
