    beau, guy,

    Hello everyone!
    I was wondering if in both British and American English it is common to use the word beau and guy instead of boyfriend!!!!!!

    Neither would be used in England.

    Re: beau, guy,

    "He's my guy," is common in the USA, "beau" is used only rarely.

    Thumbs up Re: beau, guy,

    THANK YOU!
    The reason is I red this two words in American gossip magazine, so do you think that they are used just in the language of magazine?

    Re: beau, guy,

    Beau is heard in the southern parts of the USA. Elsewhere in North America, it's considered a fancy, as in an old-fashioned way, of referring to your guy. Guy, my guy, her guy is fairly common in North America.
