Whether you’re dating or not, people you tend to spend time with often give you nicknames. While it is easy to navigate what they might mean if they are assigned by a parent, a sibling, or a friend, it does get quite confusing when it comes to romantic partners.
Know that nicknames aren’t just words that are used out of habit, they carry meaning. For certain people that have difficulty expressing their love, nicknames are a meaningful way of conveying what their heart feels.
Also, some girls freak out because they don’t know what it means and often think that maybe their relationship is taking a turn for the worse, but there’s nothing to be worried about.
And some women tend to over think when their partners change their nicknames , however this shouldn’t happen and one should think of it as a sign that relationship is taking a turn for the better.
So, rather than just going out of control, and over thinking every situation, one should just keep the below mentioned things in mind and you’re ready for any encounter with a nickname.
When a Guy calls you “Cute”
If a guy that you’re interested in calls you cute, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they might be interested, so don’t let your daydreams get out of hand just yet.
It can just be a genuine compliment without any hidden meaning at all.
So, you should look for further signs before you make a move that you might later regret.
However, if your partner calls you cute that is a whole other story.
If you’re in a relationship and your partner calls you cute, it can mean that you’re innocent and make them forget about the bad things that might be going on.
It also means that they think of you as someone to be taken care of and protected from the troubles of life.
When he calls you “Chica”
Calling you chica means that they are interested in you but it might not be for the right reasons.
If someone calls you chica it means that they find you hot.
While that isn’t a bad thing and attraction based on physical appearance is necessary it shouldn’t be something that you are defined by.
So, if someone says that at the club, go have a nice time but don’t get too emotionally invested in the person.
However, if it’s your partner, they might be trying to keep the spark alive.
Flirting in a relationship can help show that they aren’t taking you for granted.
When you are “Sweetie“
If someone calls you “sweetie” it is a go sign.
Men don’t normally call girls sweetie so if they do, it means that they are interested in you and want to take the next step.
If a guy is giving you signs that they want to see where things go, you should take the first step, who knows it might lead to one of the best relationships you ever have.
If your partner calls you sweetie, it is a term of endearment they use to constantly remind you that you are cherished.
While you might think that they call you so out of habit, it isn’t. Your partner cherishes you, they might just not know how to express otherwise.
Its mostly common when 2 empaths fall in love.
If a guy calls you baby (& you’re not dating):
If a random guy calls you baby, it might seem creepy.
However, depending on the setting, the nickname baby may have other meanings as well.
For example, if you’re at a club or if you’re just out partying and someone calls you baby they might be trying to let you know they’re interested.
In that case, depending on your preference, give them a shot or let them know you’re not interested.
If a friend starts calling you baby from time to time, it means they want something more than friendship.
In most cases, friends drop hints here and there to test the waters as they don’t want to say something and ruin the friendship.
So, if you’re interested then give it a go or just address the elephant in the room and get it over with.
Just calls you “b“
“B” or “BAE” means before anyone else.
So, if someone calls you bae, it means that they are interested in a serious relationship.
Calling you bae means that the person is way beyond attraction at first sight, and is looking for something serious.
So, if you’re attracted to the person as well, we reckon you give it a shot, and if you’re not, try to let them down easy.
If your partner calls you bae, it is their proclamation of loyalty.
Think of it as a vow that they have your back and they won’t let you down.
Have you ever been called “feisty”
While the word does have a sexual connotation, if someone calls you feisty it means they think you’re self-sufficient and they like that about you.
Other than that, it also means that they like the fact that you’re bold and comfortable in your skin.
If a random person calls you that it means that they like your body language and their intention lies in a physical aspect of things.
While it is possible that things grow from there and turn into something else, we wouldn’t recommend that you keep your hopes high.
It is rare that relationships that start on pure physical attraction last long.
However, if your partner calls you feisty the word carries multiple meanings.
It means they love how open you are during physical intimacy, how headstrong you are when it comes to your work, how over the top you are when it comes to defending the ones that you love, etc.
Being called feisty is a compliment even if the one saying it might be a little intimidated. It is a sign of strength and in the society that we live in, being feisty means being fierce.
When he calls you “Honey” (& you are not Married)?
When someone calls you “honey” it mostly means that they think you have a certain kind of bond.
Honey is something you call a person only after a certain level of intimacy so, if someone you’re not interested in has started calling you that, you need to clear out the air.
Sometimes other people might read your body language wrong, so you need to nip the problem in the bud.
On the other hand, if your partner calls you honey, it is a term of endearment.
It means that they find you sweet and even though you might be thinking that they don’t like you as they did before, that isn’t the case.
Guys aren’t that expressive and the nicknames they give you carry a lot of meaning in their eyes.
So, if they can’t understand your language of love, you’ll need to make an effort and try to understand theirs.
Granted that at times it might feel like nicknames have become more of a habit than a sweet gesture, that isn’t true.
When a Guy calls you “Gorgeous”:
When a guy calls you gorgeous, it means he finds you absolutely stunning.
So, it is okay to get all your hopes up. It is a sign that someone is clearly interested in you.
It usually means that they want to take a step forward and see what it leads to.
If you encounter someone like this I recommend you give it a shot.
Whether it works out in the long term is something up to fate.
Meanwhile, you can have a lot of fun, who doesn’t like hanging out with someone who thinks the world of them?
If your partner calls you gorgeous, know that they are in it for the long run and they have no intention of going anywhere.
Most of the time, women want a proclamation of love and loyalty, some grand gesture that their partner is still head over heels for them, they fail to realize that their partner might be saying that already.
When you are just “Love”
Calling someone love means that one is interested in the other.
Know that even though we might think that the word is too commonly used nowadays, it isn’t that easy to throw around.
Calling someone love comes with a lot of baggage. It means they are in for the long run.
It is an unsaid vow of being there with you till the end.
So, if a random person calls you so and lets you know they’re into you, it’s okay if you give it a shot.
However if their body language suggests that they are just creepy, walk away without a second thought.
Know that you don’t owe anyone anything regardless of how sweet they might seem on the outside, say no like you mean it and let things be.
When you are a “baby Girl”:
While the word didn’t carry much meaning before, after the release of a popular Netflix movie “365 Days” the word “baby girl” blew up over the internet.
It now has a lot of sexual energy that goes along with it.
So, if a guy calls you baby girl it means they find you physically attractive.
Now, depending on whether you want to reciprocate the same energy or not take your next step cautiously.
If you want to let off some steam and have a fun night then go right ahead but if you think you want to wait for something long-lasting you should politely decline.
If your partner calls you baby girl, it is just a way to let you know that you are loved and in good hands. Go kiss your partner and let them know you love them too.
Guys in love tend to show their appreciation by calling you by different nicknames such as baby, love, sweetie, princess.
While all of them do mean that they love you, there are underlying connotations that go with that.
For example; calling you baby means that they feel protective towards you, calling you princess means that they feel like pampering you, and calling you sweetie means that they want you to reciprocate their feelings.
