darling and other nicknames

Does your husband call you sweety or honey or any other endearing names? I would like to know if my husband is the only one, he calls me by my first name, mom or mommy and I hate it,It makes me feel like maybe I'm not worth being any of those awesome names most couples call each other. I'm not his mom or mommy I've told him it bugs me that he calls me that. Am I being too wa wa freaking wa?

  • My husband just calls me by my name. I'm not the kind of person who likes those cutsey sappy nicknames & he knows it. I'm fine with just being called my my name. He tells me he loves me all the time..that's enough for me. I dont think it means he loves me less or values me less because he doesnt call me "honey toes" or "sweet buns" or something. He proves to me every day how much he loves me without all that. That's me though. That's just how feel about it.

  • My husband calls me "babe", "sweetheart" or "sweet pea" 99% of the time. He calls me by my name every once in a while and every time he does we just laugh since I'm the same way and never call him by his name, only pet names.

  • Yeah, my grandpa always called me Micky, so my hubby calls me that now, but he also calls me mom and by my name... doesn't really bother me, what bothers me is when he calls me "the wife" haha.... he does call me hun on occasion too :)

  • i would hate it if my husband ever called me mom or mommy - yuck!! he usually calls my "hon" - never calls me by my first name - i never use his first name either - usually call him "hon", also - when we were first married we had other "cute" names we called each other, such as he was my "lil racoon" because he used to nuzzle my neck - i was his "bunny bear" - don't no why - we still sign our cards - "your poopie" and refer to each other as "my poopie" - we have allot of little "love names" for each other - but the one we use in public is "hon" or "honey" -

  • My STBX called me Babe and in the beginning Sweetie. The guy I'm dating now calls me Sweetie, Honey and Baby (which I love).

  • We don't really use pet names. Just never happened in our relationship, but I have with past relationships. I don't think it comes naturally to my husband so he just calls me Kathy. Before we were married, he'd call me "Lady B" (first initial of my former last name). But now he doesn't call me "Lady D" (Married last name initial - I'm wondering if that was what he called his ex wife). I miss having terms of endearment for each other, but I don't take it personally. I just don't think it's his thing. There are other ways he makes me feel loved and special.
