Do you and your hubby use "pet names" for each other?

He does. I don't. It never felt right. I guess it doesn't help that when I do say honey, he says "oh boy what do you want you never call me that". One time he told me not to call him Dear in front of his parents. We have been together for 9 years. He has totally ruined it for me.

  • Nope. Although when I am mad at him I will call him either "Steven"- his given name that his mom/family call him (he is not fond of it) or "Stevie" -which he really hates!! He likes to be called Steve.

  • yes, and I love it. Most of the time he calls me "min". Its a nick name reserved for those closest to me. But we also use the common ones, - hunny, love, baby, babe..etc.

  • nothing in particular, just Honey, Babe, Sexy, and stuff like that. We don't address each other like that all the time though.
