The guy I'm dating, not necessarily boyfriend yet, has started to recently call me babe, which I like, but I don't want to say the exact same thing back. Like if he texts "goodnight babe" I don't want to repeat it, so what do guys like? I have said "good morning handsome" a few times but I think it's getting old and I wanna mix it up, so what should I call him? And yes I could ask him directly but I just want some general feedback first. Thanks :)

I am partial to being called handsome. I think that is a general and safe bet with men. I dislike being called cute, or adorable because I tend to associate those words when referring to kids. A cute baby or an adorable little girl etc.
Babe and baby might be common but also work! Really what @junlian said makes a great deal of sense. Calling him something that let's him know he is special is fine, I think it is less about the names and more about who it is coming from that matters. I've been referred to as "muffin" before and I was rather fond of it due to who it was coming from!0
