    I have been seeing a guy casually for the past 6 months. He calls me "stud" and "big guy", affectionately, which I like but dont take that too seriously. The other day he called me "pumpkin"...

    I dont want to be like a giddy school girl, but I feel like that is a much more intimate, mushy nick name! I was kinda shocked for a second. haha

    Do you find that as someone's feelings intensify, or a relationship grows, such a thing would happen? Any similar experiences?

    Of course! I tend to give all of my very close friends nicknames and also guys who become more than friends. So far, they have all found it pleasantly amusing. What can I say? 34.gif

    I hardly ever call my partner by name any more. I have a "cutesy" nickname that I almost always call him.

    There is a straight guy, whom I am good freinds with... he's oh say 6 inches and 40 lbs bigger than me. I call him princess. Seriously.

    /I barely use any nicknames for my partner.
    //Odd.

    Personally I think it's a sign that the relationship is moving in a good direction. I can't imagine calling anyone a pet name unless I had some really strong feelings for them. My man calls me, "pookie bear", "cupcake", "tiger", and yes sometimes "Dad/Daddy" (that was a tough one at first!). I call him, "pumpkin", "baby boy", "baby cakes", "honey", "baby" stuff like that. Yes, it's a little korny and some people give me the whole, stick their finger in their mouth barf thing, but who cares! To me it's just another way of expressing your affection and if the other person goes along....to me.....that's GREAT!

    One ex called me Fuzzy Wuzzy and I called him Snuggy Wuggy Sugar Butt. I called another ex Fart Boy. Another one was Lover Muffin Pookie Butt.

    Pet names are cute and I think they're a sign of fondness. Over the years my Dad has sooo many for my Mom. As long as they're cute and not too mushy I wouldn't personally object.

    I used to love it when my ex called me by a mushy nickname.. It was so outside of whatever comfort zone he usually was in that it made me feel really important. So I totally get where you're coming from.

    I have too many pet names, I'm not really a fan of them which is why i think people keep giving me more pet and nicknames just to do it. haha
