CRAZY STUPID LOVE NAMES

Ri­hanna uses “boo”, but what about the rest of us?

Cosmopolitan (India) - - UPFRONT -

Are you sort-of sin­gle? Dat­ing? Shacked up? En­gaged? Hitched? Right, that should cover all of us. Let’s form a cir­cle of trust and talk terms of en­dear­ment—is it a uni­ver­sal truth that it’s im­pos­si­ble to find the right one? I mean, what can I call my part­ner with­out sound­ing like a ning-nong in pub­lic?

Go­ing the copy­cat route seems risky: I’d like to call my part­ner “My <3”, but Kim K al­ready has that one in the bag, Tweet­ing it to Kanye reg­u­larly. Wills and Kate use “Mr and Mrs Wales”, while over in L.A., Brad and Ange re­port­edly use “Miffy” and “Kitty”. Closer home, newly wed cou­ple Saif and Ka­reena re­fer to each other as “Beebs” and “Saifu”.

In other parts of the US, “bae” is on the rise. Re­ally. Ap­par­ently, all you have to do is drop the let­ter “b” to cre­ate next-level cool.

So, we all agree to make like the stars and use what­ever the hell pet name we want? Awe­some. Thanks for the chat.
