Playful Talk and Pet Names
There's a fine line between teasing and being mean. Loving couples tease and play without ever coming close to crossing that line. The ability to laugh at yourself is a wonderful characteristic. Couples who can poke a little fun at their own foibles are better off. Life is serious enough. So, if you're a little absent-minded, you can either be tense about it or just shrug it off. People who are “neat freaks” may have to live with a few comments about the joys of messiness. When you laugh together, love tends to grow.
It can be fun to create names for each other's private parts, so long as the names are complimentary. After all, romance and love aren't supposed to be starstruck and serious. A little giggle now and then is just what the love doctor ordered.
Along the same lines, newlyweds and others enjoying blooming romances often develop pet names for each other. Over time these seem to fade, but they can become part of the memories you share.
