Define: Boyfriend In Training
(by Urban Dictionary, edited for grammar)
The period in which a female will have a male she may be interested in follow her around, and if she so chooses fool around with him. *But it's okay cause they are "almost" dating* During this time the female will change him and mold him into whatever she wants in a guy. Then maybe if the guy doesn't f__k up too much she'll date him for real.
Me: Wow, are Joe and Lauren dating?
Mary: Not yet, he is still in training.
Griffin: *Whip sound*
Mary and Me: GRIFFIN!!!
- In addition to the above definition, which is almost correct, it also refers to a period in which fundamental views and opinions that the boy has which differ from the girl's are ironed out and converted.
"I think girls with big titties are nice!"
"I THINK YOU'RE A SEXIST AND NOW I WON'T TALK TO YOU ANYMORE!"
"Oh, maybe that was wrong."
- When a girl is tied up in a relationship (official boyfriend & girlfriend status) but is still however making advances towards another boy, often a close friend. These advances are not always sexual - sometime mental or emotional, but still lead to confusion to what the official status of the relationship is. A boyfriend in training is often confused, and can often be pussy-whipped into doing anything the girl desires, because more often than not, he has affections for her. The situation more than likely suits the girl as she does not have to compromise
her freedom - but can still have anything she desires from the 'boyfriend in training'.
Elaine: Is Sarah going out with Alex?
Danny: No, she still has a boyfriend.
Elaine: Well, when a pretty girl lies all over you, you don't complain.
Danny: He's her boyfriend in training.
