Sweeting

I had a reader question the spelling of "sweeting." So, here it is, from every dictionary I could lay my hands on:

Sweeting: archaic
meaning: darling; sweetheart
First known use was in the 13th century.

And there you have it. I think I read it in a Jane Austin novel, but it's been a while and I really don't feel like checking.

Thank you for reading.
