Do you call each other pet names?

Do you and your significant other have cute pet names for each other? Are they the classic babe or baby? Or do you use something more creative? How often?

Do you call each other pet names? Never, Always, or Sometimes?

Next Question: Do you kiss goodnight every night?

    Yep! We call each other Honey or Baboo. I think that started because I was trying to call him babaroo over text!
    Sometimes theres the babe or baby. But he likes to call the cat baby too...so he will go " hi baby!" And I answer and he responds "No...Lola is Baby, you're Honey!!"

    Not really, actually. We just always say babe or baby. We don't have goofy names for each other!

    We have nicknames but nothing mushy. He has always called me by my maiden last name (we knew each other back in the day as teens) and I call him B which is short for an obnoxious name I called him at the time too.

    We've had a bunch of pet names over the years but eventually we settled on two since we like animals.

    She calls me Goose (cuz I'm her whacky, silly goose).
    I call her Skunk (cuz she doesn't wear deodorant, so she's my little stinker).

    My friends introduced him as pookie, so I call him my pookie-wookie all the time... He calls me cupcake or cuppycake!

    I don't really call him by any type of pet name other than "dork" but he's always coming up with different names to call me by. I've been called "honey bunches", "umlaut", "sleepy mcsexy booty", "cough cough fish", "egg pony" and many others I can't remember off the top of my head. Currently, I'm being called "fiancee Beyonce" because it rhymes and he likes to make up songs.

    She has always just called me babe or baby. I don't call her any cutesy names, but my niece used to mispronounce her name (Whitney) as Woody when she was little, so that's what my entire family calls her.

    Always! It sounds weird to me now when he says my actual name and it feels weird saying his.

    my nickname is Banana because at a college party, we had to write our names on our cups so we didn’t put them down and take someone else’s...my drunken self out princess banana for some reason because that was the first thing I thought of...apparently my actual name wasn’t high enough on my name list when I’m drunk haha his family even calls me Banana.

    His nickname is Whaley/Whales or any other variation of that...for some reason, he always sent me whale emojis when we texted, so I just kind of gave him the nickname and it stuck Smiley smile

    we are weird...

    We call each other cute names all the time but my favorite one is when he calls me bebesita (similar to babe but in Spanish) and I call him mi cielo (my favorite of them all and in English would be "my sky" which sounds weird but in Spanish sounds so beautiful.

    Yes! It started off as a joke to make fun of others that did that but it stuck.

    He’s called me “cutie” since very early on; I call him “honey”. ☺️
