But sometimes a nickname can be confusing.

Don"t panic! Let us guide you through the whole debacle, and hopefully, help you come to a conclusion as to why he gave you that nickname. Unlike girls, it"s much harder for guys to express their emotions, but a nickname is the easiest way for them to show their feelings. Here are some common nicknames.

Baby/Babe

You may feel like this one is so ordinary. Well, that might be true, but it"s still magical. Have you ever wondered why a guy uses this one? "Babe" and "baby" are easy ways for a guy to show you that he adores you and isn"t afraid to tell the world. Because babies are so precious and deserving of TLC, you should be honored by this nickname.

Darling

In a relationship, "darling" is usually flattering. If you"re hanging out with a great guy but aren"t yet formally together, this nickname signifies that you might as well be a couple. He might have already pushed his thinking into girlfriend mode with a lot of presumable measures. Figure out what you want and act accordingly.

Also be careful that he"s not using the word sarcastically. "Darling" is not always a term of endearment andcan also be usedto mock the other person -- especially if you are arguing. ("Oh, darling" is NOT a good way to start a sentence.)

Honey/Hun

This is a guy"s way of hitting on you!If a guy wants things to be a little more romantic, he"ll start calling you "honey" as a means to show you how he feels. Usually, when you are in a long term relationship, guys will switch from this pet name to another on the list. Be careful if he calls you "honey" more often than your name -- you want to make sure he hasn"t forgotten it!

Bae

This term is used more by the younger crowd and can be traced back to the Pharrell and Miley Cyrus song "Come Get It, Bae." So if someone calls you "bae," they didn"t misspell "babe" and aren"t referencing Beyonce. Theyare telling you that you are the person they think of beforeanyone else.

Sweetie/Sweetie pie

A guy calls you "sweetie" whentextingif he has feelings for you. This nickname is most commonly used by people who have intimate feelings for one another. He might also call you dear, lovely, boo, angel, etc. These are definite signs that he is harboring feelings and wants more than just friendship. He might think that you are at a comfortable stage and that calling you "sweetie pie" is a good way of breaking down that friend zone barrier.

Lover/My love

"Love" is a word that says everything it needs to all by itself. It always sounds magical when you listen to this word coming from your soulmate. Men have trouble communicating their feelings and saying the L word at all. Using a nickname like "my love" can be a huge step. It"s a way they can feel close to you and enjoy the intimacy before actually taking the plunge and saying the big three words. To figure out exactly what he"s trying to say, you can always sit him down and talk it out. It will be a relief if you bring it up first, so he doesn"t have to.

Does the romantic nickname you were given relate to you? Does it have any meaning or did he just seem to pull it out of thin air? You should be more cautious if the nickname doesn"t make any sense. He may be just goofing around with you, or he"s a player and calls all girls by the same term. These are all of the things you should consider when figuring out what it means when a guy gives you a nickname. Good luck!
