darling

 

The word "darling" is an adjective that is used when something or someone is beautiful, cute, or lovely.

  • She's a darling little girl.
  • They bought a darling house on a lake.
  • That was a darling movie.
  • This is just darling.
  • My darling wife made an apple pie for me.

The word "darling" is also used as a term of endearment between people who are romantically involved. It's similar to "honey" or "sweetie."

  • Where would you like to go for dinner, darling?
  • Darling, please answer the door.
  • She always calls her husband "darling."

Note: This is a word that a woman is more likely to use than a man. (Of course, some men might use "darling" also.) Eva Gabor, a famous Hungarian actress on American TV in the 60s and 70s, used the word "darling" when addressing just about anyone, whether familiar or not.
