    Nicknames of affection...

    On the internet I can find all kinds of sweet, cute, romantic, etc. names for girls. I don't need to talk to myself affectionately, it's my boyfriend I'm concerned about. So I was wondering what wives, girlfriends, etc. call their (male) loved ones in Russia? Like here how we have Sweetheart, Baby, Honey....you get it. Can you guys help?

    лапачка, милый (милая) дорогой (дорогая) ... That's all i can think of RIGHT now, though i know tons more.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    You can also call them the diminutive of their name.

    His name is Eugene but I usually call him Женя.
    лапачка? That doesn't sound weird saying it to a guy? Hmm. I guess to me it sounds like something you would reserve for a girl. I like that one though. Sounds cute. Thanks.

    Maybe кисочка? It means Kitty. It is usual sweet talk.

    Diminutives of animal names would be a good bet.

    кисочка means kitty (little cat), which is sweet talk; кисточка means tassel or brush, which is not sweet talk.
