Go ahead, have some fun

I like hun and babe, I know, it's just the basic stuff, but it's nice and reassuring. I had a bf in the past that called me mistress when other people weren't around. Looking back, I think he might have been asking me to be more dom and I just didn't notice. whoops.

I use "hon" a lot with everyone. I keep catching myself using "sweetie" in texts though I'd never say it out loud. He calls me silly sometimes, cuz I can be really absentminded.
And just for hilarity's sake I call him "shnookie" sometimes. His face is just priceless.

I'm with Kyle, I associate them with a puppy love kinda thing... I never use them lol. I want a man, not a puppy... although I don't mind a guy who uses them occasionally if it's natural and not overly mushy :)

Avoid them early on in a relationship. They tend to establish a comfort before trust and rapport. That comfort often develops into the "puppy love" stuff and can lead to a relationship without much real rapport. It's almost a false sense of security because anyone can say some words, and true rapport is felt, not spoken.

I think if it seems natural to say something then say it. If you start trying to say things that you normally wouldn't, it will be obvious and sound really phony.

In general I am not a fan, but that said I have no problem being called "sexy"

I gotta laugh at this question, only because this used to be a recurring issue in my last relationship. My ex-girlfriend used to called me names like "baby", "sweetie", "babe", and I always used to think it was cheesy so I never used them in return, which used to make her mad lol.
Maybe it's just me, but I think the whole terms of endearment thing is a mostly a female thing. I think a lot of guys aren't really comfortable saying those kinds of things.
Good question though, curious to see what others have to say on this one.
