so the dude ive been referring to as "non-boyfriend". i dont know how i feel about that title anymore. we were on the phone and i was getting off to put in some job applications and then go to bed and he was like "oh, so you 'bout to call one of your other boyfriends?" im sure he meant nothing by it but i, of course, said "i dont have any boyfriend". so he paused and was like "your other man?" aren't those the same thing? and who/which does he think he is? im clueless, so was this some benign joke and im thinking too much about it?
i dont have any acceptable alternatives so he will have to continue being non-bf.
