Some said "Honey" should be the best term of endearment as honey is meant to last long. Unfortunately, all those I called "honey" in the past, ended up as my exes. lol Those I called dear somewhat held on to the meaning of the term as it got more expensive to hold onto the relationship, expensive long distance calls, more sophisticated tastes, fine dinners,etc. So I dropped them and the term. I call my boyfriend now as "love" I'm hoping he could be my last, true love. What term of endearment do you use?
