What are some Chinese words that I can use to call either my spouse or a love interest?
In English we have names like sweety, sweetheart, lovely, honey etc.
What are some common equivalents that are used in China today? I'm looking for words that are modern and I would not look that silly if someone heard me saying them or if I were type them online.
It would be if you could classify the terms to assist with learning:
- Which ones are for male/female
- Which ones are better for a spouse or for a single person
- Which ones should be used with care e.g In English you wouldn't just say "Hey sexy lady" to anyone.
