      In simple terms, a token can be anything from a prize to a symbol to something of sentimental value or as something insignifcantly small.  {in retrospect maybe that wasn't so simple.}

      Anyway, most women today would be offended at being referred to as a man's token; it suggests a form of ownership.  On the other hand, depending on how he says it combined with how he treats her, it could simply mean that he feels he has a prize in his girlfriend and is thus intending to pay her a compliment.

      Personally, I think there are better ways of letting a woman know she is treasured than by calling her a token! smile
