I have heard of age appropriateness in the way one dresses, but I never thought it would apply to terms of endearment as well. I was listening to a Valentine's Day program yesterday - and the host expressed surprise when an elderly lady referred to her husband as her Boo. He seemed to think that Boo was a bit "young" for the couple. In my view people who are in love - regardless of their age should feel free to address each other with whatever terms of endearment they choose. Of course , I doubt I would ever call my significant other - my Boo - but the choice is theirs. What do you think? Do you have a special term of endearment for your loved one?

I think it perfectly fine, at any age, to call a person one loves by any term of endearment they choose. My husband and I always say, "Love ya Buddy."

I don't think there is an expiry date on endearments.

I have no issues with what people wear, or how they talk, as long as they are not hurting anybody and are not planning to scam anybody.

I think many people pick up terms of endearments as the years go by and just get used to them. Is that you and your hubby in the photo.

I have never heard the term "Boo" used for endearment although I have cried out BOO on halloween when I wanted to try to scare someone I knew.

When I saw you title I thought there was a typo and a b at the end was missing I do not think anyone will call their loved one by their real name.

A ' B' at the end could mean two things (1) a foolish or stupid person - and the other I certainly won't be writing about.

I don't have a special term but surely people should be able to call their loved ones whatever they like. You can start off as a young couple with special terms for each other. At a certain age, are you suddenly supposed to come up with something more 'age appropriate'? That host needs to think things through a bit more.

I think it's fine whatever they want to call each other. It does seem like a very young generation right now that calls their boyfriend boo. It is not a term I care for so I don't use it. I call my boyfriend babe. I try not to use the same name for the guys I am with to the ones before them. My late husband I called hun. I don't recall what I called the others.
