    What terms of endearment do you prefer? I think "darling" is okay, but "sweetheart" doesn't seem appropriate between two men. I don't like "honey" for anyone. I suppose if you're super-butch you might call each other "chief." And then there's always "Daddy."

    I've never dated anyone long enough to call or be called by some sort of word like that. But there are friends that I call "love," and "darling."

    I like ones that don't sound like terms of endearment.

    Cricket guts, wormsy, dog faced slime monster. People seem to like it oddly enough.

    I've always referred to my boyfriends by their names. I tend to use terms of endearment for my friends instead. "BITCH" and "SWEETHEART" are my favorite ones. I could never get into "DARLING." "HONEY" isn't bad, I suppose, yet it never stuck with me. Now that I think about it, white gay guys seem to use "HONEY" more than black gay guys. Perhaps it's a gay subculture thing.

    TOE for the BF - babe, daddy and ass. Those are all pretty standard.

    I used to call my last ex "you insult to every molecule of oxygen you suck into your lungs".

    I call my dog "little shit", does that count icon_razz.gif. I have used the term Babe, sweetie, hun, hot stuff, and Mr. sexy in various conversations with guys I talk to.

    I call my close, straight male friends "babycakes."

    Eh...I don't hang out with many gay friends so I just call the ones that I do by their names. Lol.

    I've used and liked "Babe" or "Sweetie" or "Hunk" or "Hunky stud" but the one I don't want to hear is "Daddy"

    I vote that from this point forward, everyone call Sed "Cootchie Poo" at all times.

    Anyway, I've had hun and babe at me, never reciprocated a "pet name" though.

    "Daddy" makes me cringe almost as much as "Sugar Lips"..."Babe" I can handle icon_lol.gif

    "Boo" seems to be very popular now.

    I am more impressed if they remember my name though

    me and my bf call each other "babe" ...

    in our emails (which we send to each other everyday), we always say "my sweet baby" ... or "my cute & sweet baby" ... lol ...

    when we go out, whether in restaurants, movie theaters, or while shopping, or doing errands, we call each other "babe" ...

    and we got used to it ... he he ...

    cheers !!!

    My ex was "bubba". I've used "pookie", "munga" and "boy".

    Something about being called "precious" irks me to the core, not sure if it is a Silence of the Lambs thing or because it seems to drip with sarcasm.
