What If Your Gf/bf Introduces You As Her/his 'friend'?

Guys/Gals: How do you feel and what do you do if your gf/bf introduces you to some of her/his friends as her/his 'friend', though she/he acts before them in a manner that may indicate that you are her/his bf/gf?

It all depends on the capacity wit which d term friend is defined,or perhaps redefined.If d friend means her boyFRIEND,fine;but if it means an ordinary-FRIEND,then "Ara ga gba ndi ara" ,cos i'll introduce her as my 'racket' meaning a one night stand,n trust me,that will kill her spirit

So! whats the big deal?

Girlfriend/ Boyfriend, You guys are still friends, so introducing you as such is just stating the obvious, I'll just introduce her the say. Who cares anyways, so long as she doesn't act like i'm just one of her numerous friends.

Boyfriend, girlfriend, friend, are all semantics, what matters is the mind. She could as well introduce you as her boyfriend and treats you as though you were just a friend.

hmmmm, personally i do not like a guy to call me his gf (just one of my many quirky xteristics) it kindda gives the impression of 'ownership' which is something am not really into. However i can understand how upsetting it can be for someone who believes something and gets something else in return. I just think that if you both know and i mean truly know what each one means to the other then the 'word' doesnt matter. But that's just me

@ Ano

I feel you, but it might really not mean that the bobo isn't serious. He could be taking his time as regards introducing you to the parents (or is a year too long for that, guys?). Let's just say, in this case, none of you had really introduced yourselves to your parents, but your brothers and sisters know about the relationship. My point is, could it sometimes be a kind of slip of tongue or something for him to introduce you as his friend sometimes or a sign he may not want much commitments yet? Is it something you would likely talk about with him without feeling insecure and petty?

@ iice

Could you please just tell us why you would be cool with that (especially, if what you had in mind was a relationship with serious commitments)?

I'm talking of a relationship that is about a year old and virtually everyone in his/her family knows about it (except the parents). Could it still be a case of a waka pass"fast one" or could it be that he/she is a bit afraid of serious commitment yet?

Ok, I think I get your point now, iice. By the way, that really doesn't sound so quirky. Anywayz, thanks for y'all for your contributions so far.
