I Call People Honey

    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.

      I always do now. I call my friends honey, sweets, sweetie, darlin', lovey, and whatever else I can think of. lol. I think I do it because it always makes me feel like I'm getting a big hug if I see someone addressing me the same way. Of course, I usually have to know the...

    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...
