To think DP's nickname for me is really disrespectful?

DP calls me his little cum-bucket. I didn't mind at first because I didn't realise what it meant (I thought he was saying come-bucket although I realise that doesn't make sense) but he's saying it outside of the home too which is even worse. I saw him writing a text to his mate who we're going out with at the weekend and he refered to me as "cb". He denies it was short for cum-bucket but refused to say what else it could mean!

AIBU?? It makes me cringe.

mad4mainecoons Thu 30-Jun-11 15:23:40

how long have you been together? has he always called you that!

Poor you sad

Is this a joke?? Why do you let him call you that? It is beyond insulting...he is reducing you to an object for him to wank into.

thats horrid, it would make me cringe as well. It would be bad enough if it was a name he used just for you but to actually share it with his mates shock.......start calling him "spunk bank"...maybe he will then change his name for you

Thats foul. It really is repulsive. I don't think I could be with him tbh.

HettyAmaretti Thu 30-Jun-11 15:25:41

YANBU. Revolting and disrespectful. It'd be bad enough if you didn't object but considering you do it's totally out of order.

Have you made you feelings about it totally clear?

Gawd, worse than Me Little Cock Jockey.
Ask him to call you Jamez, in future. Politely, though.

Time to give him a new nickname - dildo maybe? Although maybe he'd take that as a compliment hmm

ashamedandconfused Thu 30-Jun-11 15:26:43

is this genuine?? someone would actually use that gross term?? to their partner , thinking it was a cute NN??

the kind of man who uses this term at all, never mind about and to the woman he loves, is not the kind of man I want to know


WriterofDreams Thu 30-Jun-11 15:26:47

Yuck. YANBU. He might as well call you "toilet."

Lady1nTheRadiator Thu 30-Jun-11 15:27:11

hmm you didn't know what he meant? I don't buy that for a second.

MrsTwinks Thu 30-Jun-11 15:27:36

YANBU, if it were me he'd be xp. that is not an acceptable nickname for someone you love its what I call my boss when im reallly annoyed with her nasty

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Thu 30-Jun-11 15:27:41

You're being unreasonable to be even on nodding terms with somebody like that. Does DP stand for 'dreadful prat'?

Fifis25StottieCakes Thu 30-Jun-11 15:29:02

OMG i hope he doesnt call you this in front of people

What a wanksplash

Just urgh

AuntieMonica Thu 30-Jun-11 15:30:44

i've seen this so many times on MN, but this time i mean it

Leave the bastard.

that's one of the most disrespectful things i've heard. revolting person.

controlpantsandgladrags Thu 30-Jun-11 15:30:58

The man obviously has no respect for you at all. Do you have a good relationship?

ashamedandconfused Thu 30-Jun-11 15:31:21

the text means its an in joke with his mates - what kind of guy is this?? and why are you with him??

PeopleCallMeTricky Thu 30-Jun-11 15:31:52




(Sorry that was just my credulity)

itisnearlysummer Thu 30-Jun-11 15:32:17

Part of me doesn't believe this, but part of me thinks I have 'encountered' men who would say this.

Although I have been out with some pretty choice individuals in my life, none of them were ever this vulgar or disrespectful.

If you don't like it and have said so but he's till saying it then, yep, of course that's not on.

Try nicknaming him your Little Dick and see how that goes down....

sims2fan Thu 30-Jun-11 15:35:36

Yuk that's horrible. I know someone who publically refers to his partner on Facebook as 'sugartits' which I thought was awful, but that's far worse.

DuelingFanjo Thu 30-Jun-11 15:36:19

really, o dear. That is unbelievable. I really didn't think this kind of thing happened in real life.

Vile. Using it to his mates is just insult to injury.
