Japanese word for partner/lover?

I remember there was a Japanese word for someone to call their lover/partner or whoever they are in a relationship with. I thought this was Koishii but then had to question; is this a name said from male to female? Or is there a female version for a male partner other than -kun? Please let me know if you have an idea!

    "Koishii" is verb and like "I miss you" But for young, I don't think they use that expression that much.

    For couples;for koibito(whom are not married)

    male(bf) to female(gf)!!nothing in particular

    ___chan(ちゃん)

    male(bf) to freinds;

    kanojyo(彼女、かのじょ<- hiragana)<noun>

    ☆female(gf) to male(bf)

    ”kun” is common, but I dont think....how about darlin? some grls do lol

    but many grl use "chan" too!!

    female(gf) to friends

    kareshi(彼氏、かれし<--hiragana)<noun>

    ★For Parteners Fuufu(the couples who were mwrried)

    Husband calls wife in few ways**

    Okaa san (mom)

    omae (you)

    To freinds**

    nyoubo(my wife)

    Tsum(my wife)

    Wife calls Husban in few ways

    anata(you)

    koishii is lovesick

    koibito (unisex for lover)

    kareshi as in boyfriend

    kanojo as in girlfriend

    tsureai as a partner or mate

    aijin is lover outside the marriage (most often used to mean mistress)

    hope this helps

    Hey!

    Koishii - miss/homesick lardy dar dar

    koishi - pebble! ha ha!

    Umm, the word for lover is aijin (愛人)

    An affectionate suffix to a name is "chan". My friend from Japan calls her husband "name-chan" as an affectionate term.

    koibito - word for boyfriend/lover/girlfriend sort of thing. That'd be the word you are looking for! I'm nearly 100% sure you are thinking of the word koibito. More common term than aijin. Aijin is used, but it is not as common, friendly whatever as koibito!

    koibito - 恋人

    Good luck,

    Beau
