Nicknames are a compelling way to show your feelings towards a person. Since old time’s people use nicknames or pseudonyms to keep the things going in a lighter mood. Whether the relation is old or new and you are engaged in a face to face or online dating, nicknames can always be a useful way to express yourself and grab the other person’s attention. But it should be kept in mind while nicknames are like a double-edged sword, and you should be very careful before using them with a totally anonymous person or a person with whom you are meeting at the very first time.
You can use a nickname to show your interest, familiarity or comfort with someone. It can be used as a gesture or natural move to grab the attention or to deflate the tense or harsh moments in a meetup. According to a Thai dating site, nicknames like honey, kiddo, sweetheart, honey, and sugar pie are a perfect way of introducing fun in a serious or monotonic conversation and making a girl laugh at her own or you and feel easier with you.
