90 Adorbs Nicknames to Call Your Boyfriend

·3 min read

You’re in love, you’re in love, and you don’t care who knows it! Yes I did just quote the Christmas classic Elf—but for good reason! When you’re in love (or even when you just have a whole lot of affection for someone), it’s natural to want to give them a cute nickname that makes them feel special, but that also means something special to your relationship. And while yes, ideally, your nickname for your partner is personal to you, like an inside joke or something from a memorable shared experience, you can’t always guarantee a serendipitous moment that’ll make the perfect nickname appear out of thin air—especially if the relationship is new and you still want to call them something sweet. Enter: Our giant list of cute nicknames to call your boyfriend or partner. (All of these are gender neutral and work on everyone!) At least one is sure to stand out or help you draw inspiration so you can brainstorm your own nickname for your SO.

Can nicknames for your partner sometimes be kind of cringe? Yes. But can being in love in general, at times, be kinda cringe? Also yes! So don’t let anything or anyone hold you back from expressing how obsessed you are with your person. And remember: You don’t need to be in a committed relationship to use a nickname. Hell, even if you’re just hooking up, you can still call them something hot while you’re getting it on. “Daddy” isn’t a pet name for nothing 👀, and if you use it while they least expect it, expect fireworks.

So, ahem, without further ado: The best nicknames to call your partner, right this way.
