Each relationship with have it's own. There is no universal language of love. After forty years of marriage I still thrill to our own personal endearments and cringe when a generic happens to pass his lips. Our private names are just for us and not used within the hearing of others. Pillow talk remains, just that; either a postprandial prelude to bed or a post coital tete a tete.
Personal experience has not been a help to me in my quest to compile a list of endearments for a work project and perusing the Internet has convinced me that creativity is in it's death throes. It seems those who blog think, Angel, Baby, BabyGirl, BabyDoll, Big Boy, Bear, Boo, Bunny,Cutie, Darling, Dear, Dickie, Dickie Bird, Honey, Love, Luv, Sugar, Sunshine,
Sweetheart, Sweetie, Sugar tits, Sweet buns, Gorgeous, Handsome, Hon, Honey, Kitten,
Love, Pookie, Princess, Pumpkin, Shorty, Sugar are creative and worthy of sharing .
Oh how I despair!
So it was a great pleasure to stumble upon the following old blog post. I imagine the author to now be romantically involved, not doubt with a poet who appreciates her way with words. Sadly the blog has not been updated since 2011.
So what about you ? Pressed for words of love how would you address your beloved?
