As in, “He’s my, um, friend.”You might also refer to him as something more detached, like my “plus-one,” “prospect” or literally, like, “This is my date.” Some prefer the tongue-in-cheek “not-boyfriend.” You can be coy (“fancy friend”) or a bit crass (“makeout buddy”) or cheesy (“this is my luvvah”) or even snobbish/fake-French.
