Questions & Answers

Question: What's the difference in saying good morning dear, or good morning sweetie?

Answer: It really comes down to the "pet name" you use for your partner. For example, many people don't ever refer to their partner by their first name. They use "pet names" instead, such as sweetie, honey, darling, babe, etc.

If you call your partner by the term "honey", then you should probably say "good morning honey." Using a different pet name feels strange, and they would probably notice that it feels unnatural.
