He calls me darlin' every now and then... especially when he's expressing care/concern or when he wishes me good night or good morning. And it makes me smile.
He was born and raised in the south, and just moved to the west coast about 5 years ago, so I'm thinking this might just be a southern thing (?) Truth be told, I've been called all sorts of "endearments" but never darlin'... so just curious. I've never dated a country boy before! :P
