I went out with a guy, who developed this habit, as to me it is symbolic of a certain attitude towards a woman as someone, or more an objectified something, insuperior, the relationship did not last beyond the asking out stage whilst I was under the influence and he appeared...
and it's not "B" either, which is I guess a derivation of the word babe and sometimes used by the guy at carry out places.
I do call people babe, honey, sweet, but they are people I know and they call me those names too.
"Hello beautiful , sexy , love , babe , honey". And so on. I don't know you. You don't know me. Start it off with "hey how you doing". And later on in the road still don't call me them names. Okay. Just ****** me off .... ^_^
...I call people baby, I call people honey, sugar, sweet, fruitloop and all the rest of the them....
But people I know. People who I actually know.
I dont mind being called those things in return, or anything that is a term of endearment.
But not Babe, by a...
I hate it when guys call me babe or baby or honey (I can excuse the honey one if they're southern and just being friendly). Please, just use my name.
The only way I'll let you call me babe or baby is if you're my boyfriend.
It really annoys me when some guy calls me babe or baby, and I'm not their "baby". Especially it makes me mad when they call me that and I'm in a relationship with someone else and they know it.
Don't do it.
