Girls, what 'pet' names do you like to be called?

If you had a SO what pet names would you want them to call you? Which are acceptable and which arent? I mean common ones, not stuff like 'schnookums' or anything like that lol. Or if you HAVE a SO, what pet names do they call you? And do you like them or not?

Also, would you call a SO pet names? Please give examples of pet names that you would call them. Thanks!

    • I am infected with your luvv <3

      If somebody overheard that they would probably think i was talking about STDs bahahahah

    • I know. That's why it's funny :p.

  • Babe - can sometimes come across as insincere, depends on your relationship. Depends who says it to me and how.

    Baby - can sometimes come across as patronising, depends on your relationship. Depends who says it to me and how.

    Sweetie Sweetheart Honey Love Princess Cutie Precious
    Yes to all the above

    Sexy - not quite as endearing, but if it fits the mood and situation, can be ok. I wouldn't personally like it as a regular pet name.

    ..."kitty" - for me, em... just no. Never. Maybe that's just me and coz I don't really like animals haha.

    "Petal" can be nice, angel too.

    It's one of those things though that really depends on the girl. I generally don't mind pet names and like it - my sister on the other hand can't bear them. Her boyfriend called her babe once, never again haha. Also for me it depends who's saying it. With my ex I always felt he was being genuinely affectionate and it was nice. I know guys though that just use them to talk girls round. It's usually pretty obvious when it's insincere. Also, some guys say it to everyone and it loses its effect, especially when they "honey" and "darling" everyone from a 90 year old to a fish. My advice is use them when you're genuinely being affectionate so you don't over use. WARNING: Handle with care if arguing with the girl- it can come across as patronising.

  • It honestly depends on the lady to whom you are referring! I prefer well thought nicknames that aren't generic, like sweetness, lily, my lovely, honeysuckle, or even a reference from a movie favorite. Bit you should come up with pet names specifically suited to your girl (that way you cab give her a cheesy line as to why that name and get EXTRA brownie points for thinking it through)

  • Everyone is different but the quickest way to turn me off is by using sweetie or sweetheart. Babe is good, cutie is iffy, sexy is no, Princess definite no. Honey i'm not fond of, Love is good, Precious reminds me of Lord of the Rings and kitty is weird. Basically if my parents may have called me it I don't want to hear it from you.

  • I HATE being called baby.
    Babe is ok, but still not my favorite.

    i have family that already calls me princess. So i wouldn't mind my SO calling me princess but it wouldn't be much of a pet name.

    Sweety/sweet heart and honey are alright.

    I think love and darling is very endearing.

    • Why don't you like 'baby'? Just curious ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Babe. No. Never, unless you want to be slapped.
    Baby. As above.
    Sweetie. Yes
    Sweetheart. Yes

    • Some of my own:
      Rabbit
      Goose (Don't ask, I just like it)
      Buns
      Kitten
      Miss/Missy
      Chika
      Honey Bunny

  • Honestly i just think it's sweet when he gets clever with it. Not just the normal stuff but something that he actually had to get creative with. For example, a play on her name. My name i adagio and it kinda sounds like pistachio, so this he calls me pistachio and it misght sound cheesy but its adorable that he tried finding something that sounded like my name, espessially since its adagio. Apart from that i think beautiful is really sweet.

  • Lol most of the time, my BF just uses my name... but then again we're not super touchy-feely.

    Sometimes if he wants a new greeting he'll slip something in like "babe". He calls me "kid" and "little girl" sometimes just because he finds it funny, but I actually think it's kind of cute. Probably weird but hey what's normal anyway

  • Id hate being called princess as it reminds me of a bratty child and being called love reminds me of a massive English builder asking me to make him tea i. e. 'make us a tea would ya love' ... My boyfriend calls me his little rabbit :)

  • I don't mind those pet names except for love and princess. Love is like Shrek and Princess.. well-Shrek lol.
    Honey is calling me a food but I can live with that if my potential SO called me that.
    I actually just like him calling me by my name, simple as that.

  • You simply can't go wrong by calling a girl "beautiful" or "gorgeous" it reminds her that you respect her enough not to call her sexy which will only make her think you want sex out of your relationship.
