Cute Nicknames to Call Your Partner
Nothing marks the progression of a relationship like the development of a nickname for your partner. It is a time-honored tradition to call your partner by a pet name, usually such a name reflects an aspect of their personality. There are hundreds of names to choose from and you don’t have to choose only one to call your partner. Some names can be used in public, while others are left to be used in more intimate settings. The name you choose should make your partner feel wanted, funny, or romantic and should not be used for teasing. Nicknames are a gesture of love and are used to show your affection for the other person.
There are a few several types of nicknames that can be used, and most are based on the gender of your partner, like princess. Other nicknames that are used in relationships refer to the couple as a set, such as Batman and Robin, salt-n-pepper, or thunder and lightning. While others are more romantic and denote completion of one another for example, my other half or my soul mate. Some couples choose to go with a collection of pet names that tend to be more cheesy and sweet.
