Cool Is it wierd to call your friends/ close friends pet names? - July 19th 2010, 07:19 AM

I'm wondering, because I do that to my friends, and they like it. By the way, I'm meaning friends like the same sex. Like I call my friend named Angel, Booie. They're straight though I'm not. Another question, Do you call your friends pet names or just nicknames, their real names, etc?

While you walk away with the frosting of my heart
So I'm taking back what's mine, you'll miss
The slice of heaven that I gave to you last night

I probably use more pet names for my friends than for my boyfriend. Difference is I call my boyfriend names such as "honey," "dear," "my dear," etc. aloud. Though I'll occasionally (and this is a rare occasion) refer to my best male friend as "my dear" in person (generally in a condescending fashion), most of the time I call him "doll," "my love" and "m'dear" online. I occasionally refer to my other friends with affectionate pet names, so no, I wouldn't say it's weird.

I typically call my friends either by their name or a nickname. Like...my best friend, being that he is a guy and he is really cool and helps me all the time, I call him "Cool Guy"

You can always contact me to talk about anything!

Not weird at all. Pretty much everyone I know does it. I don't very often, but if I do, it's usually Dear or Love that I use.

I use nicknames or their real names generally....
...Unless their upset in which case I'd probably be like "Awwh what's up hun?"

I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.

I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.
