What do you think of guys being called cute pet names like babe, baby, honey, gorgeous etc
I've never called a boyfriend a cute nickname like that (only in my head) because I wasnt sure if he would like it.
So if you do, what do you like to be called?

Urgh I hate them! I am not impressed if somebody calls me babe, darling, sweetheart, gorgeous...urgh please just don't!
I have never had a pet name for an ex and they never have for me, saying that I am very un-romantic so this probably explains my hate for them

Have loads of completely random pet names for my hubby and he has names for me. They aren't 'cute' though.

It's ok and sweet from time to time, but not if you are called like that all the time.

I only use pet names in a sarcastic manner - 'See you later, honeybunch'

I invariably call my husband "darling" where we are having a private conversation, even if there are other people around. I only ever use his first name if I need to attract his attention when we are in a group. "Hey, darling", from across the room isn't guaranteed effective LOL. It's different with a long term relationship than with a boyfriend though."God, give me the Grace to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference."

I quite like them, little made up ones between the two of you is cute.I know why the caged bird sings, Only joy comes from song
She's so rare and beautiful to others, Why not just set her free
So she can fly, fly, fly
Spreadin' her wings and her song
Let her fly, fly fly

Oh yea, in privacy, I wouldnt start going all mushy on him in public, but it would just be really awkward if I had a nickname for him and he didnt like it or somethingLove Is Not Love That Alters When It Alteration Finds

My ex girlfriend first told me that she hated being called 'babe'. But she called me babe or baby all the time!
The girl I'm seeing at the moment calls me 'baby' but only in texts.Yes I'm on the dance floor, fuck that cool shit!
