The meaning of "Lover" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does "He holds his lovers, like they're quarters for payphones" mean?
A: It's an interesting phrase if for no other reason than it talks about someone using a pay phone.

I remember the days before phone cards, when you always had to have coins at hand in case you needed to make a call from a pay phone. So in this case, I think the writer is talking about how this character keeps his lovers at hand, not "spending" them until he needs to. They are there, in his pocket, always available to him, until he has a use for them.

And they are quarters. They are of no great value and easily replaced with other coins, but he keeps a few on hand, just in case.

Synonyms of "Lover" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between lover and partner ?
A: Lover would be an improper term in that scenario, because it would be referring to a sexual relationship.

There's not something with the same connotations as 'boyfriend'. You could say that he's 'your man', it gives off that possessive vibe, but I think it feels more casual in a silly way.

You could also use the term 'partner', but it gives off more of a serious/work relationship vibe. Though it is still used for romantic relationships in some cases. When I think of the term 'partner' when it comes to romantic relationships I think of it in regards to long-term relationships; but the term feels stiff in comparison to 'boyfriend'.

I can't say I'd use a different term other than 'boyfriend' everything else just gives off a weird vibe when it comes to that relationship dynamic. They may have a different term in other English-speaking countries that I possibly don't know about though.
Q: What is the difference between lover and girlfriend ?
A: I would say "lover" hints to a more serious type of relationship (thinking of marriage perhaps). On the other hand, a girlfriend is just someone who you are dating at the moment. By the way, I don't think the term "lover" is commonly used these days, but I may be mistaken.
Q: What is the difference between lover and someone you love so much ?
A: a lover is your boyfriend or girlfriend...someone you are romantically involved with. I love my mother so much, but my mother is not my lover.
Q: What is the difference between boyfriend/girlfriend and lover ?
A: A girlfriend or boyfriend is someone you're in a romantic relationship with, usually exclusively, but not married or engaged to. Lover is more broad and can be used for many different levels of romantic relationship. However, the term we usually use for this kind of person (someone we know has a romantic relationship with someone but we don't know their level of relationship) is "significant other." It's a pretty neutral term. "Lover" can have a taboo or sexual sort of feeling to it in certain situations, so use with caution.
