Hi, Pookie: Why Women Nickname The Men They Date

By

The secret significance of pet names.

So, it turns out there are several reasons why women give nicknames to the men they date: to make talking about the men easier and more identifiable for your girlfriends; to guard your heart until your guy becomes a fixture in your life; and as a term of endearment.  

One last word on the subject: Never tell the man you are dating what his nickname is. The word combinations you create to capture a man's essence may seem descriptive or sweet to you, but he might not see it that way. Avoid any unintended insults by keeping those creations between you and your girlfriends. I didn't tell my husband his nickname for over a year ... and you never have to reveal those clever monikers at all.
