Terms of endearment

Not the movie – I’ve never seen it – the actual terms of endearment.

I think (almost) all the normal ones are cheesy. I know that sounds lame, and you can say, “Just wait…”

Fine, we’ll see.

For now, let’s take a look at some of these and really think about them for a second. Here’s a list I came up with:

  • Angel
  • Babe
  • Baby (-cakes, -doll)
  • Boo
  • Bubbles
  • Buttercup
  • Cupcake
  • Cutie
  • Darling
  • Dear (-est)
  • Doll
  • Handsome
  • Honey (-bun, -bunch, -pie)
  • Hot stuff
  • Hottie
  • Hubby
  • Hun
  • Love (-ly, -y)
  • Lover boy
  • Muffin
  • Munchkin
  • Peach
  • Peanut
  • Princess
  • Puddin’
  • Pumpkin (-pants)
  • Snuggle bunny
  • Stud (-muffin)
  • Sugar (-pants, -plum)
  • Sunshine
  • Sweet (-cheeks, -heart, -thing)
  • Sweetie (-pie)
  • Sweets
  • Sugar
  • Tiger
  • Toots
  • Wifey

The way I see it, food, especially sweet and sticky food, seems a popular choice. Just an observation.

Now, three questions for you:

  1. What would you add (whether you’ve used them or just heard them)?
  2. Which do you like?
  3. Which do you think is the only one in the list that I like? (10 points to the winner!)
