    I've been dating this guy fir about 5 months. He has all the spontaneous romance of a dill pickle. So I am trying to encourage a little silly romantic talk. His one spontaneous seet-nothing is to call me his "hunky monkey. icon_eek.gif ... Ok, the "hunky" is good. Not so sure about the "monkey" part.

    So does "hunky monkey" qualify as a sweet-nothing?

    I guess I should be happy I got a man at all and shut up.

    This kind of reminds me of the story about Bess and Harry Truman. A visitor told Bess she should get Harry to say "fertilizer" instead of "manure." Bess informed the visitor that it had taken her 20 years to get him to say "manure." ... icon_wink.gif

    If this is bugging you after seeing the guy for only 5 months, it's probably not going to develop into a "Truman" romance.

    I think youre being picky, douche monkey, may be one to worry about, but not hunky monkey, I've used ____ monkey as a pet name in the past.

    oh no, this isn't bugging me. I just thought it was kind of a funny term of endearment, so I am doing a reality check. Actually, I do find it endearing that that is him. That that's what he comes up with. No snookums or sweetie-weetie. But hunky monkey. Ya love 'em for who they are, doncha?

    He says it when I remind him to say something romantic. He is a great guy, just not romantically-inclined....sexually-inclined yes. But not romantically. I love him dearly and it amuses me that I have to prompt him. icon_lol.gif

    Maybe's he's subconsciously referring to something?

    Would you have preferred petal? Or perhaps you'd have liked sugar? Maybe cup cake? Would these be more romanic for you?

    Hunky monkey sounds ike a reference to the ice cream flavor chunky monkey. If you are being referred to as someone creamy and good to lick I wouldn't complain.

    Now as for dill pickles, I have come across a few that were large, firm, girthy and downright good eatin'.

    Your more gay then i had anticipated.

    Perhaps you should suggest the name to him... He might adopt it.. While your at it he might take you shopping for shoes and a new dress... Girls like that right?

    Take hunky as the compliment... the monkey part happened because it rhymes with hunky. I don't think its anything offensive. To me it sounds comforting, like a hunky hairy big cuddly guy, haha. If my guy called me hunky monkey I'd kiss him. Well, I guess I need a guy first, lol!
