speak chinese like a native

Honey? Sweetie? Lambchop? Pookie?!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'd love to see a Dear Amber or Qing Wen that touches on the subject of Chinese pet names. I come from a pretty affectionate home, and I'm constantly calling folks by things other than their given names. How common is this in Chinese?

How would one call their significant other...

Sweetie?
Baby?
Honey?
Dear?
Darling?
Sweetcheeks?

Okay, maybe that last one is just me. :-)
