There's no telling how many words or phrases exist to express love and affection for our loved ones. Most of us have a unique term of endearment or secret pet name that we use exclusively to address the love of our life. Most of us, too, have a name other than our given one, to which we respond every day — only to that special someone, of course!
Relationship experts have confirmed that the use of pet names or secret nicknames is a sign of bonding, intimacy, and commitment. This highly romantic expression of caring can easily be taken for granted, because its use isn't confined to a special holiday or time of year. We are free to address our loved ones in this fashion anytime we please!
