    Babe or baby. No creativity really. I hear baby so much from him that I feel like I'm in trouble if he says my name lol.

    We call each other "love" "my love" "my lovely".....never babe or baby. Just what I said, or our names. If we are being super silly I call him Shnuckems (sh-nook-ems) and he calls me SmoochiePoo. Smiley tongue

    If "babe" counts as a pet name, then sometimes haha.

    I mostly call him babe or sometimes 鈥渕y love鈥 and he calls me babe, baby, or Cait. Nothing too mushy yet, but maybe those will develop after the wedding/honeymoon 馃槈

    Always. It is rare that we use each others first names unless we are talking to someone about one another. If someone knows us I call him P to them, his name is Paul.

    In HS he, his friend, and his mom were watching a movie, and she was like wouldn't it be funny if they called you pookie, and his friend just ran with it and literally started calling him pookie, and then a few years later my brother brought him home and introduced him to my mom as pookie, and I walked in from work or school and my mom was like have you met POOKIE, and it stuck. Like 5 years later I ran into him (with his cousin out of his crowd that gave him the nickname), and I literally yelled POOKIE across the bar, and we have been seeing each other ever since! I think me calling him his nickname from his hometown friends made him more comfortable around me, but I honestly only knew him as pookie! I called him only pookie for MONTHS after we started dating until MY GUY FRIENDS WERE LIKE "HEY YOU ARE A JERK GIVING HIM SUCH NON-MANLY NAME," so I slowed my roll around my friends, but when we are around his friends its pookalicious, pooks, pookie ALL THE TIME FROM EVERY ONE to this day!

    Yes. I call him Handsome and Baby or Babe. But my fianc茅 on the other hand has a million names for me. Some of them are weird and make no sense whatsoever but there's a ton of them
