What do you call your boyfriend when you're over the age of 40?

Now that we are engaged I have very little introducing my fiancée to anyone who we may run into… but, back when I was getting ready to introduce (my then girlfriend) Erika to “the entire world of Eric” two summers ago, I really didn't know what to say when making all the introductions.
I truly thought "I’d like you to meet my girlfriend" sounded too much like being back in high school… but what wording do you use when talking about your significant other without using that label?
Do you go with something like 'sweetheart', 'lady friend', or 'other half'? Do you agree that it seems awkward for me to be calling her my "girlfriend"?
