I don't use terms of endearment with the boy. I think I may have used the word 'babe' a couple of times in a text. I think I probably should, but I feel really silly about it.

It used to annoy me to no end when I'd hear people speak like that to one another in public. The same went for most forms of public affection- especially 'hanging' on one another and/or kissing.

Things have changed with my current boyfriend. We aren't obnoxious about it, or anything- but we do occasionally call eachother 'honey', 'darling', or 'dear'. I kiss him in public sometimes, but it's never anything more than a peck on the cheek or lips.

My boyfriend calls me gorgeous and I call him handsome. That's probably the extent of ours! Also calls me sweetness sometimes too, and I like it It's best with the british accent too!

Partner (too ambiguous/gay/sexual)

Significant Other (too clinical)


I think I referred to him to my brother as a 'dirt broke committ-o-phobe' but I don't think that one is on my list (This was in a conversation wherein my brother was online trying to choose a laptop for his live-in girlfriend of like 4 yrs... and i said i wished i had a boyfriend who would get me such a gift... he said something to the effect of "it's not like we're married" ... and i responded with "yea well i'm dating a dirt broke committ-o-phone" haha) I think thats pretty typical of the twenty-something-male crowd though.

My boyfriend calls me dear, but not anything really pet-name-like. I personally don't like pet names, I find them really wierd to say. I don't care when other people use them though, unless they're really mean.

Lol, Chance recently brought it to my attention that the only times I call him by his real name are when hes doing a really good job or hes in really big trouble. It does sound weird when he calls me by my name, bapookie is so much more natural.

an old boyfriend of mine used to call me sausage (still does actually.) Apparently he saw something on the learning channel about how prince albert used to call his sweety "sausage." He thought it was cute, so he decided that it was my nickname for then on.

I've had lots of different nicknames from significant others aside from "sausage." My first name is Ginger... so I've been called ginger peach, ginger pie, ginger cookie, gingerbread, ginger kitten.. I could go on and on. Usually, I stick to the nicknames such as "love," "dear," or "sweet pea."

My bf keeps calling me 'gorgeousness' I'm trying to think of a new unique one for him, cos i don't like the thought of using the same names on people. It means more having unique names i think.

My significant other just recently started calling me "Snookums". So I call him "Nugget Boy Who Ran Into A Parked Car."

It's a long story, lol...

I dated a guy who used to chase me around calling my "honey bear" in public, just to annoy and embarass me. It was hilarious...he'd do it with the most pathetic look on his face too.

I call just about everybody pumpkin though. Relationship or not. Younger cousins or Godchildren get that stretched out to pumpkinhead or pumpkinbutt depending on my mood.

This is a good point! - I hadn't really thought about it, but now wonder if evil past girlfriends have called my sweetie any of the pet names I use for him...

We've just got the standards: honey, hon, umm... that's about it. I almost never call him by his name, actually. The nickname I go by is already kinda weird, and he just shortens it most of the time when he talks to me.
