They all have names
The husband and I were discussing past relationships the other day, and I realized that I never refer to them by name. I gave nicknames to all the guys I dated in the past and they have stuck. I also gave nicknames to the women of his past. I am not sure I know one of them by their actual name. I wondered if that is something that just I do, or if others do it as well. I can remember when I first started dating my husband, co-workers nicknamed him Army Boy or Soldier Boy (he was in the Army at the time). He didn't get a first name at work until we were serious. I guess it can be a defense mechanism in case things fall apart early. A few of the better nicknames are Crazy Boy, Hairless Cat Boy, and Crazy Iowa Chick. Does anyone else give nicknames to past flings? If so, do you have any good ones?
