The 82-year-old actor, who is currently in a relationship with ex-Jersey farmer David Mills (74), said while she is in love with him, she believes she is too old to get married, reported FemaleFirst.
"He is not going to propose. No, no, no, no, no. Let's just pull ourselves together and be our age!" Dench told Good Housekeeping magazine.
The "victoria and Abdul" actor said she despises when someone refers to Mills as her "partner" or "boyfriend".
"I don't know what the word is because I don't like the word 'partner'. Partner is something to do with dancing. Partner - horrible word. Friend? No. Boyfriend? No. Chap? Will chap do?" she said.
