usually, what boys do is use the girlfriends name twice. If a girl is calle Yu Chen, then she will often be addressed as Chen Chen, Liu Cong will be Cong Cong, etc.
As to having an equivalent to "Darling" or "Honey" I will need to ask around.

亲爱的(qin ai de)... i think it would translate to something like "darling"

I agree on repeating a word twice. Names such as Bu Bu, CoCo, and actually TaiTai means wife so that can also be used.

Call your wife taitai? Seriously?

i think  "Darling" or "Honey" is better, as you can call any girlfriend "darling", it is difficult  to make a mistake if you have many girlfeiends.

My GF asked me to call her "Sweetie", she likes that.  I used to call her Yin Yin (Rose Rose) but she claims I misspronounce it so badly she has no idea what I am saying.

And the reverse, when she is in a good mood and maybe wants something, she will call me "honey".  When she is upset at me she calls me "stupid".

A:No, I wasn't saying Trudeau is a doctor. I'm forgetting this is a forum read by people with differing levels of English ability - my bad - I know the use of analogies can confuse some people so for those readers who somehow think my point was about Trudeau being a doctor I'll re-phrase it. 1. There's an emergency situation requiring action to deal with that emergency. 2. Someone (Trudeau in this case, acting under the advice of medical professionals) takes action, it's not convenient for anyone but there isn't a choice, something has to be done to stop the emergency becoming even worse. 3. The actions seem to work, the emergency situation is contained for now but there's no way of knowing if it's permanent, or if the emergency situation will become a serious threat again. 4. Trudeau tells people it's safe to ease back on those actions now, but if the emergency situation does become serious a threat again they may need to take action again to deal with it. 5. For extra clarity.....   * emergency situation ; in this case refers to the covid pandemic.   * action ; refers to covid measures. This seems like a simple, common sense process to me and one that could be (and is) applied to most emergency situations.   -- Stiggs
