It’ll make you want to slap your forehead for sure, but it just happens sometimes. Don’t make a big deal over it and things’ll be fine.

Haha, it happens. I feel like sometimes our minds get thrown into a time machine.

About a year ago, I was out late and my phone died. I happened to have my on-call phone for work and wanted to call my SO and let him know that I was on my way home. I dialed in his number and a familiar voice picked up, I said my SO’s name and the person told me I had the wrong number. A couple of minutes later I realized why the voice sounded so familiar…I’d called my EX BOYFRIEND’S CELL PHONE!! I hadn’t been in contact with this person for like three years and I’d been with my SO for 2. I have NO idea why I suddenly remembered his number! So odd. I hope that he didn’t realize it was me, hahaha!

I occasionally call my Fiance my sister’s name, or my former roommate’s name. lol. It’s just habit when you get close to someone and use their name a lot, even if it’s been awhile. My parents used to mess up our names as kids – there were 4 of us.

My sister did that on her WEDDING DAY.  She was all giggly and happy getting ready and said “I don’t believe in 2 hours I’m going to be Mrs Exs Name”

She didnt notice, and I called her on it.  And she had been broken up with that moron for about 4 years.

She came to me about a month or so ago and told me she wants out of her marriage, I reminded her about using her Exs name on the wedding day, and she claims it didnt happen.

But it so did!!

@2ndtime: You did not say his name in the bedroom. Its not a big deal.

It happens. 

I called Darling Husband “Mom” this morning, and I’m not too worried.

LOL

@brideatbeach: I’ve done that once or twice. When I visiting my parents I accidentally called my brother “hun” when I was speaking quickly. I think he thought I just picked up a weird habit in Texas, which I’m totally okay with him thinking that.

I call Fiance douglas all the time joking saying it’s my other boyfriend. I don’t have one, so I don’t think he’ll notice if I do happen to use a wrong name.

@Knubbsy-Wubbsy: Haha yeah, I had just gotten off the phone with my mom, so I’m not too concerned. 😉

I don’t think it’s a big deal, really..it’s happened to me a few times!

I work with a lot of men and my bf has been called their names before!  He knows they are guys that I work with…and the opposite happens too at work, sometimes I call the men I work with my bf’s name lol!

However, I will say….about 7 years ago, I was with my ex bf, and his Dad accidentally called me by my ex’s ex gf’s name and I held it in for a bit…but when we were alone, I was freaking pissed!  Doesn’t matter now…but it was awkward then and I know his Dad felt bad.  Oh well….it happens to all of us!

When I’m talking to my friends and family, I sometimes say my ex name even though I’m referring to my Fiance and I haven’t talked to my ex in 5 years.

I’ve never said the ex name in front of my Fiance so that’s good. I hope it doesn’t happen, but like everyone says, it happens.
