Are you looking for a perfect nickname to give to your girlfriend? Choose from the variety of cute nicknames for girlfriends to make her happy and, more importantly, special. 

Let me tell you something… Love makes us all warm and cuddly on the inside.

We have this natural urge to be super sweet to our loved one and there is no better way to express our feelings than through cute nicknames

Even more, you’re not even aware of the effect of a good nickname. It can change the course of your whole relationship because your girlfriend will feel even more loved than she is. She will feel special and unique. 

That’s a feeling each one of us wants to experience. And you’re making it happen for her. That’s a huge plus on your behalf.  

The only catch is to be innovative and unique—we don’t want to repeat the same nicknames everyone else uses. 

Sweet nicknames have to express your intimate feelings toward that special someone.

They have to tell a one- or two-word story about something that you believe to be charming and adorable about your partner. They don’t even have to have any connection with their real names

Nicknames can be something completely unrelated, something that doesn’t make any sense to anyone but the two of you. That’s what makes them even more special. 

When to start using cute nicknames for your girlfriend

Sure, it’s never too soon, but there are some rules after all. Won’t you agree it would be so stupid and creepy to call your date ‘cutie‘ on your first date? 

She would run for the hills because it’s way too soon to start throwing such personal nicknames around. You don’t even know each other that well.

Instead of making a horrible mistake, you should wait until you get a bit more familiar with the girl you’re dating.

When things get a bit more serious between you and when you connect on a deeper emotional level, that’s when it’s the perfect time to introduce cute and sweet nicknames for her. 

Using nicknames is a sign your relationship is going in the right direction

As already mentioned above, when you give each other a nickname, it’s a clear sign your relationship has outgrown that first awkward stage when you’re still getting to know each other.

Nicknames are a real, see-through sign that you’ve matured together, and you feel comfortable around each other.

On this note, it’s one thing when a guy gives a girl a nickname and when a girl gives a guy a nickname.

Sure, some people will give you a nickname from the moment they meet you, but usually, that is not the person who is interested in you romantically and usually, guys are the ones who do that first. 

But when a girl gives you a nickname when you’re not in a relationship, it means she’s flirting with you and wants to get your attention because…SURPRISE…she likes you. 

How to give a nickname?

Cute names are not that easy to come up with. I’m not saying you have to be a wizard, but a certain amount of imagination and good observation skills is necessary.

If you’re not well endowed in those departments, I suggest you read these instructions carefully and good luck!

When you’re giving someone a nickname, there are some things you need to consider before making your choice: 

•  What’s your relationship with them – You have to make sure that the nickname you’re giving your partner is appropriate to the relationship you have. If you’re married, some nicknames will probably be more intimate, something that only the two of you understand. If you’re giving a nickname to the person you’re in a more casual relationship with, that nickname will be more innocent and more general. After all, you still aren’t that familiar with one another.  

•  How the nickname makes them feel – Before choosing a cute nickname for your girlfriend, make sure she is okay with what you’re planning on calling her. Either ask her what she thinks or try calling her that and see how she reacts. It’s not fun nor interesting if the person doesn’t like the nickname you have given them. 

•  A nickname has to be unique – Your girlfriend has to be the only one you’re calling with that nickname. If she finds out you’re using the same nickname for other girls you know, she won’t feel special nor unique—and that is not what you’re aiming for. 

•  A nickname has to agree with their personality – Consider carefully the traits your person has before you give them a nickname. The cute pet name you’re coming up with has to agree with what the person is like.

Naturally, you will never stop calling your girlfriend by her real name, but using a nickname gives something special to your relationship.

You’re putting in more emotion, and you’re making your relationship deeper by using a nickname that no one but you calls her by. 

If by any chance you have problems, below, you will find a list of cute nicknames for girls you’ll find useful. So read further, and with my assistance, unleash your creativity.
