Pet NamesVisitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
This may sound like a silly question, but how can I transition into calling my boyfriend a pet name? When we first got together he was shy about that stuff I eventually got used to the idea of not having pet names. Now, I want to change that.
The only silly question is an unasked question! We all have things we want to know and things we have trouble with. Pet names are a way to make your relationship more "intimate" by calling each other names that others don't use. It's like calling a guy "Robert!" or "Bobby ..." - they have completely different feelings to them.
So choose a time that you ARE being close an intimate - snuggling on the couch, resting your head on his shoulder while you drive somewhere. And then just sigh happily, "Oh, pookie ..." as a sign of your complete contentment. You're not saying it TO him, you're just SAYING it.
You don't want to be calling him this name 24 hours a day! It's a special name for special moments.
