Had to give this one a little thought---since I do NOT have a sweetheart in my life at this present time.  But thinking over the past....when it comes to terms of endearment for someone special I have used "boo-boo," "sugar," and "sweetie."    Perhaps I will come up with something new for the future  Sweetie, Honey, and Baby are among the most popular names for Americans to call our significant others.
