TERMS MY MOM INVENTED TO DISCUSS MY DATING LIFE

  1. BFM
    Boyfriend Material. After meeting a new guy in any context, I will inevitably be asked, "Is he BFM?"
  2. Oyfriend
    The guy you're kinda dating who isn't quite your boyfriend and maybe suffers from some personality defects that in turn cause you anguish-- a lot of "oy vey ist mir" moments...thus, OYfriend. For the nonjews in da house, it basically translates to, "woe is me!"
  3. Mr. Rightstein
    Looking for the right guy...who is also Jewish. A preliminary google search suggests other people have used this phrase, but I still want to believe MY creator is THE creator. (Have never referred to my mother as "my creator" and kinda dig it!)
