Baby, please call me baby.
In this world, there are written and unwritten rules. Failure to abide by them will not necessarily attract a jail term or huge fine, but be rest assured that you will pay in other ways.
Did you know that not calling your female partner by her pet name is a punishable offence? Wait, don’t tell me you’re hearing this for the first time, or are you? You must have either been living under a rock or have never dated any woman before if this is news to you. Honestly, I feel honoured to be the one to break it to you.
I don’t know about men, but to the women folk, pet names are like the ultimate expression of affection. Calling them by a unique name carries a lot of weight. Whenever your girlfriend or spouse is angry, just the mention of her pet name can diffuse that anger in seconds. That’s how potent it is.
No matter how men try to dismiss the importance of using endearment terms, it works. According to a survey done by Superdrug Online Doctor, couples in the US who use pet names are generally happier and have stronger relationships than those who don’t.
So you see, it works. If you have not started calling your partner “beautiful,” “gorgeous,” “baby,” or any other sweet pet name, please start today.
