|Subject: Humorous Nicknames for Lovers Fri Sep 02, 2011 11:26 am|| |
Over our 44 years of marriage we have met thousands of couples that deeply loved each other. We have interviewed many, many of them for our several books on successful marriage.
In nearly every case, successfully married couples have an affectionate nickname for each other – a sort of private “code” for saying, “I love you.” Some of the nicknames are ones you have probably heard many times before – “lovey-dovey,” “sweetie-pie,” “sugar,” “snookie-poo,” “honey,” “darling,” “sweetness,” “sweetpea,” “baby girl,” “lover boy,” “sunshine,” “sugarplum,” “baby-doll,” “hey, handsome,” “hey, beautiful,” and so forth.
Some of the nicknames are unusual and funny. Names like “Butch” in reference to a very petite wife seem unusual, but to her husband, it is an endearing term.
“Snookems,” in reference to a very manly-man” does not compute with most people, but to his wife, the term is an expression of love and affection. There are many other examples we could share related to this notion.
Over the years, the funniest “affectionate” nickname we ever heard was from a wife who lovingly referred to her husband as, “turkey-fart!” It is not important to understand the origin of “turkey-fart.” What is important is that the name has special meaning to the husband and wife team that coined it.
You see, love has a private code. People in love understand!
In love and marriage the simple things matter. Love well!
