I Call People Honey

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 48 People

    Fun

    I don't ever use my husbands name unless maybe I'm mad. Most the time it's Honey. Only trouble is when I say honey loudly in a store to get his attention, every single man turns around. Can get quite amusing actually.

    Sorry Honey,

    It's what I do sweetie. I like to call people dear, sweetie, honey, and hon. Even babycakes but um... most people don't let me call them that. I don't know exactly why I do that, I know I've always liked being called those myself, and then as I got older people began to say, don...

    Is It Really So Wrong?

    I call people honey.  There I said it.  Yes I am from the south but this has no bearing on the subject what so ever.  I'm really not sure why I started calling some people honey.  I don't do it to often.  I have noticed that when I see someone doing...

    Honey, Sugar, Darling

    I love saying honey to someone, it just sounds so bizarre to be addressing someone as a sticky bee produced substance that enriches our taste buds lives. I don't think I would want to ingest whoever I am talking to, but I sure would like to send a little sweetness their way.

    And...

    ...sweetness, adorable, precious, sweet pea, handsome, sir/ma'am, and lovely.  I am not sure if it is because I am from the South or not, but I try so hard to break the habit but it keeps coming back.

    To call people names are unessecary and rude. There's really no point and it says more about you than about the people you are trying to offened. Keep it polite people.

    I call my boyfriend Honey. Not Hun or Hunny or Babe, etc. Honey. Because it reminds me of bees and nature, and sweetness. I love honey. I love my Honey. I love my boyfriend.
