Moderator note: The discussion of the translation of endearment terms from French to English can be found here: ma belle, ma puce, mon ange, mon cœur, mon amour, ... in english we use words like hun, babe, sweetie, darling, hunny, cutie, quite liberally... (generic nick names i guess)..like we call our friends that- same or opposite sex. Its really a term of endearment, but nothing serious.. not somebody that u necessarily love. Is there an equivelent in french? Not cherie- cos i dont think id say that to my (male) friends... (im a girl) Spanks muchly!!!!
