How would you feel if your SO/DH refered to you as his "old lady"?

DH never has done this (yet :[...better not ever do it) but I hear some men say it a lot and I think it is distastful and degrading (personally only).

  • I think that it means he loves you, as in hes looking forwerd to be spending the rest of his life with you. Even if you two arnt old But at the same time it might hurt your feelings if your sensitve, like being called old. My fiancee called me his old lady one day and i said "argh I'm old" then i took the time to think about it after he told me, "Yea Baby I love you and I want you forever, your my old lady." We both laughed after-werds cause where only 19. But I guess age is with the soul. Hope this helped.

  • Dont care. As long as he doesn't refer to me as bitch or ho, he won't find my fist in his face for it.

  • DH knows he wouldn't survive to say another word. I may be a lady, but I am not old! NO matter what my age.

  • If you know the man and his background it can actually be a term of major respect! There was a time when I wished that SO would call me that years ago.

  • I was dating a guy who was 8 years older than me when I was 21. He called me his "old lady". I thought it was pretty funny especially with the age difference but it didn't bother me.

  • I laugh because he never means it in a derogatory way.
