Glikie mou means "my sweet", sweetie, sweetheart. "Che" (if it is Greek) means "you" - acc. case, i.e., should be the object of a verb. You should transliterate it as "Se". If you hear it 'fat' (ch) most probably it is not the Greek pronoun. Che in Italian means "that".

Cypriot τζαί could come across to an english speaker as sounding like 'che'.

This means "and" in the Cypriot Greek dialect.

Γλυκή μου. Gliki mou is like saying " my sweet" when referring to a girl/woman.

its used where an English person would probably say "my darling" or "honey".
