What do guys like to be called by a close female friend, or significant other?


Many men or boys call close female friends sweetheart, cutie, girly, darling, etc. I always feel awkward when I am addressed this way, because I never know what to say back. What do boys like to be called? I assume they don't like to be called "cute." What do I say?

    I think nicknames that are specific to the person are the best. It's like a little inside joke for the two of you. Do you think babe is a common name for guys? I'm hesitant to use it.

    Hmm. You have an interesting point. I will have to find out the names that I should not call someone. However, if I'm close enough to call someone a name, I would imagine they could tell me if I make them uncomfortable.

    I agree with baby and honey, as long as you're older. I'm on the younger side though. Thanks for the suggestions, and the luck!
