    Nickname could be "Teddy Bear" or "Ted" for short!

    Could be—if only Ted was not her friend that her lovelorn lover thinks is her other lover.

    Relationships don't need to be this complicated, you know? Especially the ones that are defined by not quite being defined. Those are the ones that are all juice, no squeeze, if fleeting. When they get too squeezy, at least in my experience, it's either a sign that juice is gone or that someone needs to step up and say the thing ("Lover, I want you to be my partner!") that is very scary, but sometimes very rewarding, to say.

    Food for thought. Nibble as you see fit.

    I mean... did he include your middle name? Like when my mom used my first and middle name I knew she was pissed at me.

    Otherwise maybe he just wants to call you by your name for a change.

    What's more concerning to me is why can't you just ask him, in a playful, teasing way? What are you afraid will happen? Fear like that surrounding basic communication does not bode well for a successful long term relationship.
    I would have responded to the text "Good Morning <his full name>". That's just my nature. I suppose that would be my way of finding out "why no nick name?" right there and then, but yet in a playful way!!!

    Or good morning 'Ted'.

    Pick your battles. At least it wasn't some other girl's name.

    So you've forgiven him for going through your phone?

    Are you the one who wants to turn this FWB into a relationship?

    If he called you by your name, what's the problem? It's your name! If he called you Sh*t for brains, well that'd be a different story.
