Hi Mba, what about 'my dear friends' or 'my sweethearts'?

That sounds good

Dear Torsten

first, really "lovers" has bad meaning
I think your expression (my sweethearts) better than lovers

Thanks a lot T

Generally speaking, unless you're joking around with them, you would not refer to your friends as "my dear lovers".

So here's a crash course on what to call different types of people you know:

Friends--
man, dude, homie, girl, pal, friend

Sample greeting: "Hey, man, how's it going?"

Girlfriend/boyfriend
baby, sweetheart, sweetie, dear, honey, babe, lover (only use "dear" if it's serious or if you just want to piss her off. hehe)

Sample greeting: "Hey, baby, what's up?"

Wife/husband
Dear, honey, sweetheart, lover... mostly the same as girlfriend/boyfriend, except you're probably less likely to refer to them using "baby" or its derivatives.

Sample: "Hello, dear, how was your day?"

When in doubt -- and this goes for friends, girlfriends and spouses -- simply use their names when greeting them. People generally like hearing their names. And if it's a new acquaintance, name recognition is especially important and impressive.

Terms of endearment differ somewhat (at least...) depending on location. Those mentioned above might only apply to the American-English lexicon.
