Terms of endearment

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
hello peeps.

Just wondering what terms of endearment people like their friends/family/other halves to use.

My ex used to call me "trouble" all the time and I don't know why, I just really liked it. I also like "girlie" and "kittie".

I, on the other hand, am really boring with what I call people. I tend to put "kins" on the end of their names (My friend Sandi was always Sandikins) and the ever-popular "darling", "sweetie" & "sexy".

Any other ones that people really like?

    Well just all the usual ones really:
    hun, pet, darling, etc.
    One of my mates tends to call everyone babe, which i dont mind from her but its drives me mad when fella's say it, i don't know why but it just makes them sound really sleazy i think (but thats prob just me being weird!)

    strangest one i have is between me and a friend (secret and unique) is big buddha and lil buddha, based on the fact my snowboard is a Budda board. <IMG alt="image" SRC="tongue.gif" border="0">

    beyond that, often i'll say "hey girl", trouble occaisionally, or yeah. i think that's about it.

    My ex used to call me 'Fruitcake'. I hated it, it's what my Gran and Grandad call me! Big Turn-off <IMG alt="image" SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

    I call people honey if they're feeling down (it's a compulsion I can't seem to fight off!) but I don't often use endearments with my bf, for some reason.

    I always call my bf 'pudding' cos thats what the vet called my cat when i took her to have her injections and i thougt it sounded cute. The strangest thing ive ever bin called is 'malcolm', when i worked in a restaurant. apparently its the catch phrase from some old tv prog where this guy always asked if he cud do things and someone always had to say 'course you can, malcolm'. and i always asked loads of questions. but noone else seems to have ever heard it!
