Terms of Endearment


There are certain 'pet names' that just don't appeal to me: honey, darling, sweetie, babe. I dislike them even more when someone, whom I don't know includes them in an introductory email to me or in a comment on one of my pics.

I don't know how it started or who was the first to call me it, the one that absolutely makes me melt is 'sunshine'.

What can I say, I am sentimental. It makes me think of this great song by Bill Withers.

Ain't No Sunshine
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long
Anytime she goes away
Wonder this time where she's gone
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away
And I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know,
Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Only darkness every day
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Songwriter
Bill Withers

So my question to you is: other than your name, what do you like to be called or enjoy calling someone else?

Hello sexyldy1000.

I luv being called by my first name... "say my name, but in that tone again"... In a manner that tells me that my lover loves me and wants me...

that turns me on so much...

I luv this rendition of the song too... It is my fav.

Here are some other song lyrics that you might enjoy...

GABRIELLE - "Sunshine"

Made a wish, I can dream
I can be what I want to be
Not afraid to live my life
And fulfil my fantasies

I learnt a lot of tricks to help me live my life
You helped me find my paradise
When you came you were like

Sunshine through my window
That's what you are
My shining star
Sunshine
Making me feel
I'm on top of the world
Telling me I'll go far

Reaching out, for the highs
You inspired me to try
I felt the magic inside
And I felt that I could fly
I'm looking at the world in an optimistic light
You made me appreciate my life
'Cos when you came you were like

Sunshine through my window
That's what you are
My shining star
Sunshine
Making me feel
I'm on top of the world
Telling me I'll go far

You are the calm
I am the storm
You are the breeze that carries me on
When I set adrift
You anchor me
You're there for me

Sunshine (oh yeah)
That's what you are
My shining star
Sunshine
Making me feel I'm on top of the world
Telling me that I'll go far
Sunshine through my window
That's what you are
My shining star

(Sunshine) Making me feel I'm on top of the world
Telling me that I'll go far
Sunshine through my window
That's what you are
My shining star
Sunshine
Making me feel I'm on top of the world
Telling me that I'll go far
Sunshine
My star, my star..

I agree it is all in the tone and expression when I am called by my name.
I never realized there were so many songs with Sunshine in the title!
I loved this one you have brought to my attention.
Thank you.

I was seeing this woman with an British accent who used to call me "Petal"... I turned to jelly when she'd call me that.

During my lifetime I've been called everything in the English dictionary and in some other language dictionaries too. Of course the old joke is "you can call me anything, just not late for dinner..."

Stevie Wonder said it best........

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning,
Though I've loved you for a million years,
And if I thought our love was ending,
I'd find myself drowning in my own tears, whoa oh oh ah

You are the sunshine of my life,
That's why I'll always stay around, mmm mmm yeah yeah
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

You must have known that I was lonely,
Because you came to my rescue,
And I know that this must be heaven,
How could so much love be inside of you?
Whoa oh oh oh

You are the sunshine of my life, yeah,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart.

You are the sunshine of my life, baby,
That's why I'll always stay around

For me personally I like to call new friends Luv. Just because I can I guess. Jimmy B.

Great song choice!
I did a little research and was amazed how many songs have Sunshine in the title!
Being called 'Luv' would resonate well with me especially if said with a British accent.

here's another one...

better listened to... than read...

hmm...

Keane - "Sunshine"

I hold you in my hands
A little animal
And only some dumb idiot
Would let you go
But if I'm one thing
Then that's the one thing
I should know
Can anybody find their home
Out of everyone
Can anybody find their home
I hold you in cupped hands
And shield you from a storm
Where only some dumb idiot
Would let you go
But if I'm one thing
Then that's the one thing
I should know
Can anybody find their home
Out of everyone
Can anybody find their home
Lost in the sun
Can anybody find their home
Come on, come on, come on
Can anybody find their home
Oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Can anybody find their home
Out of everyone
Can anybody find their home
Lost in the sun
Can anybody find their home
Come on, come on, come on
Can anybody find their home...
