How do cute things to call your boyfriend increase intimacy?
There are no specific rules to pet names. You can do whatever you want with them and go for it.
However, if you want to increase intimacy in your relationship, it’s best to proceed with caution. Firstly, choose a name your boyfriend actually likes. The forthcoming list of cute things to call your boyfriend should help you with that!
Secondly, are you going to call him this in private or in public?
Having a private pet name for one another, something only the two of you know, can be very advantageous. When you whisper it in his ear when you’re out in public, it’s like a small secret that only you two know.
However, if you go for a name you call him in public, it’s also working in the same way because it’s like an ‘in’ joke, something that’s reserved for you two. It’s not like his friends or yours are going to start calling him by that name – well, hopefully not anyway!
The key to using pet names for intimacy building is not to tell anyone else why you’ve chosen that name. It has to have something that’s unique to your boyfriend and that means something to you both.
If anyone ever asks why you call him that, just smile enigmatically and change the subject!
