@AdamDean From what I know, Anata is a bit different. Anata means "you" in Japanese, but it's not used as often because it's more polite to use the person's name or refer to them by girl/boy friend. Since there is no real direct translation of darling or dear or cute nick names like that anata is used. Once you feel confortable with your relationship with a person you can use anata to refer to them, women are the ones who use anata more commonly. Hope this helps.
