I Can't Stand Being Called Pet Names By a Man I Don't Know

I Ain't Your Baby DAMN IT! 211 People

    Seriously? That is only reserved

    for a man who is my boyfriend or my close friend. I don't know you so don't act so intimate and familiar with me.

    Like a lot of people here,

    it creeps me out. Like even if the guy is considered good looking, he automatically transforms into either a kidnapper in a white van or a sleazy car salesman in my mind. Maybe it's because it's overly familiar?

    Very few pet names bother me more than being called "baby" by someone I don't know. It just sounds sleazy coming from anyone but my boyfriend. This is usually corrected in a rather catty manner. "I have a name, and it isn't baby. I assure you." Sweetie, honey...

    NO No No

    The only time this has ever made my skin crawl was right after I started my job we had a person in our company (very high up) would call me “Sugaar” making fun of my Southern accent.  I was so glad when he was laid off.

    I Don't Even Know You....

    First off, let me tell you that I am into the bdsm/kink scene. But not in a negative way. I have my own values of how people perceive me, and how I LET others perceive me. Now that has been said, I will say my story. As of a few weeks ago I have been talking to a friend of a...

    I Am Not Being Racist

    I get hit on mostly by black and hispanic men even though I am a white girl. I have known a few guys that I wouldn't mind if they hit on me because they are respectful and well mannered men, but unfortunately the ones who hit on me have neither of those qualities. I get so...

    post this story in, becuase honestly, I don't mind all the 'sweet' names, such as darling, sweetheart...that sort of thing. But there's ONE name I absolutely despise. 'Little/Lil Mama'When I'm approached, I'm sometimes called that. I understand there might be some female artist...

    Not What Most Think

    For me it's insurance agents who call me "pal".  Good grief, you know my first name, USE IT!!  You do not yet know enough about me, just cover my car and leave me alone!!

    I HATE when some guy calls me sweetie

    or honey or anything else. If you're my friend or my boyfriend, pet names are cute. But you're neither of those, then don't call me pet names. Unless you want me to turn into a *****

    Excuse Me?

    If I don't know you, please don't come up to me and call me honey or sweetie. I'm sorry sir, but I consider certain pet names too intimate for strangers to use. Watch the pet names or I'll most likely put you in the creepy category.

    Do I Look Plastic to You?

    Generally, I'm not overly offended by the occasional, well-meaning "honey" or "sweetheart", but when a guy at a bar awhile back referred to me as "Barbie", I almost went nuclear on him. How insulting!
