25 Worst Pet-Names for Your Lover

88

loving coupleGiving your partner a pet-name is like a rite of passage in a relationship. After six months of monogamous dating, you know your significant other well enough to coddle them with cute little nicknames that soften your tone and show your affection ... and may or may not make the rest of us barf.

Like any well-intentioned gift, a given pet-name can go horribly wrong, and there are many people out there that don't even know they're stuck with, or using, cringe-worthy lovey-dovey names. They think they're being cute, we think they're being tragic.

My husband and I call each other '"Babe" so often that our daughter is starting to call us that instead of Mama or Daddy. *facepalm*

I call my s.o. babe so often that when I have to use her first name to call her it just sounds weird...fail.



Ps number 21 is my favorite

My husband has been calling me Booby for our first three years of marriage. I haven't heard him address me by my proper first name in forever!! Everytime I ask him why he never calls me by my first name, he says "because you're Booby." I find it quite adorable.

Man, I love nicknames! I call people, not just my SO, but also dear friends a wide range from Babe (also Baby, this is usually for my SO) to hunny, smoo, doodle, muffin, (name)face. I have a bunny I call Custerface (as an example). Nicknames are the best! I don't think I'd ever call someone a cowpie, though. Hee.

I call a lot of my lady friends Gorgeous, lovey, hunnybunny, etc.

Fun!

My boyfriend calls me his "Favorite Immature Weirdo", and I call him my "Favorite Egotistical Bastard".  We both admit we are strange geeks, as he has a HUGE ego, and I love collecting dolls and toys.
