i met a guy before 2 days. He was very happy to see me and said to me:" hello, my darling. how are you today?" i told him, i was not bad. then, he asked me:" what's your name?" i smiled to him: "oh, too pity! you forgot your darling's name!" you know what's happend... he left awkwardly. so, don't think what the word "darling" means, it is nothing for some guys.
