let's talk about something that is dear to our hearts--the terms of endearment! are you conscious about this? calling your loved ones by special name/s? are you comforatable and proud enough to let other people know how you call sweetly call each other? or you simply use this special name or term of endearment inside your bedroom? terms of endearment adds spice in a relationship. it makes you feel special and different from the rest. it may sound "corny", cheesy, irritating and sickening to others but who cares? as long as you are happy to show your love and affection in that sense...GOGOGOGOGOGO! term of endearment also brings couple much closer. as far as i am concerned, i call my husband honey and he does call me honey too. my husband started calling me honey during our wedding day. before getting married we had several terms of endearment but ended up with HONEY and will always be HONEY. my mom and dad call each other DARLING. mylot friends do you use terms of endearment for your loved ones? wanna share? thanks!

Hi, msfrancisco9369. I call my husband by his nick name and he calls me "baby". When I get irritated with him or when I am in a playful mood, I will call him by his first name only.

Hi msfrancisco, My husband and I used to call each other 'Love', that's when we started going steady until we got married. When the kids came, I started calling him daddy and he called mommy, up until now. It's a way to teach the kids how to address us properly. Best regards and keep on myLotting!

hi amyson, honey i think is the most common term of endearment for couples and partners but what makes it unique is the feeling you have whenever you call him honey and vice versa. it estabishes a special bond between you and your partner. stay as sweet as honey for your honey my dear!

during our early years of marriage of my husband we used to call each other "HONEY". but when our daughter arrived i started to call him dad.just like what our daughter calls him.its some kind of showing your affection to your partner in a little way yet touchy.

hi ally, thanks for taking the time to respond to my discussion. so, we share the same term of endearment with your husband. it's a good strategy...modeling where you call your husband the way you want you child to call him and you. that's really tocuhy and sweet! have a great weekend.

Hi msfrancisco, I use to call my husband "love" but only when I'm writing him a note or sending SMS...lol. I can't call him even by his name face to face. Sounds silly! but I always call him "hoy" on personal basis and he will always answer back calling me "Ma". I always regard it as a term of endearment when he calls me "Ma" but the truth is it's the last syllable of my real name. And now that we'll be having soon our first baby I'm calling him daddy as this is what I want my son to call him. Good Day!

Hi seanbryan, Good to see back! It's been quite a while. I've been away for a while too, but not by choice but by force (of Ondoy). I've seen couples who don't really use terms of endearment but it's very obvious that they care for each other. Staying married and being together is one real proof that you indeed love him and vice-versa. Hopefully when the baby comes you will be closer and sweeter even more.

Hi my dear SB, Nice to hear form you again. Doryvien and I missed you a lot. Calling your hubby "hoy" and not being comfortable calling him by his name is really weird my dear. but i am happy to know that you will start calling him daddy in preparation for the coming of you love-child. So this time from Ma...your hubby will change it to mom or mommy to be consistent! hehehehe. Take care always and godbless!

Well, we do call each other a lot of names. But in public, we just call each others name. I don't know why but, we both kinda feel the same way. Kinda "corny" as you say in public and we both dont wanna get noticed. Whats special about it is that we both feel the same way and understand each other. For me, that's what really counts.

you know why it's corny? because you can really feel it--- everytime you call her by that term and she call you the same thing it really goes to your bone--- the soul feels it...isn't this a lovely feeling? try it and let your honey feel the "kilig" feeling than feeling it corny.

my man and i call each other "lab". love sounds so serious that's why we opted to make it like this. the first time he started calling me that, i really didn't feel comfortable about it and i'd call him by his name if there are other people around but as the months passed, i began to feel comfortable about it and i love it. ^^ it makes us feel closer to each other. i don't mind if other people say it's cheesy or what because we are happy and inlove. ^^

"lab" quite unique ha! i felt the same way too at first there's discomfort but i got used to it and really love it. what really matters is what you feel and how this feeling makes up your day everytime you call him and him calling you "LAB". stay being "lab" and in love with each other. more power hugs!
