My crush can call me whatever she wants and it wouldn't bother me too much. As long as it's nothing inappropriate or embarrassing while we're around other people. And I wouldn't want her calling me hot or sexy all the time... maybe just once in a while if she wants to be goofy or have sex. I don't think I'd ever have a problem with her calling me handsome. Same with cute, unless I'm around my guy friends.
cute is by farrr the worst one. by far. really far, like almost to the point of being negative. handsome is alright, but I think better suited for when we dress up. in general I think hot is the best until we really get a chance to be sexy haha
My guy calls me gorgeous and sexy so I like them :) He calls me baby which I wasn't used to in the beginning and never used myself, but we've been together 9 months now so I'm used to it and call him baby sometimes too.
