Dear Guys Who Use Pet Names,
Pet names are only acceptable after the following date ranges:
1 day – 1 week: nothing but your name or nickname that your friends use
1 week – 3 weeks: hunn, sweetie, darlin'
3 weeks – 1.5 months: baby, princess
1.5 months and on: Almost anything is game. This includes sexual names and joking funny names.
NEVER under any circumstance is the phrase "my love" acceptable. If you are old and rich and I am 29 without a man…I may consider "my love" as we are both running out of time to find acceptable mates.
Also, calling a girl "bug" is NOT a turn on. "Aww bug." "My love bug." "Bug, whatcha doing?" A bug is neither cute nor feminine. I mean, seriously, where do guys come up with this shit?
