some people have gotten offended...or they stop talking to me because i ask them nicely not to use any boyfriend terms with me...you know call me babe, baby, hunny, love, and etc...but i mean it's not a big deal i know...but i'm not in a relationship with the person...so why would you even call me that???...what's wrong with calling me buddy, bud, pal, friend...anything you would use to call a friend???...i don't know maybe it's just me...

Because a big part of is formalty. How you call someone defines where you want to stand with this particular person. Calling someone babe or honey off the bat is just plain ignorant and rude. T 3 T Plus it's a tactic scammers use online. My head yellow flags anyone calling me baby or honey.

l only like being called babe and only one special dude l'll allow to call me babe. l don't even call people by their name unless l've known them a good while and is involved in chat with on a regular basis.

I allow the nurse at my doctor's office to call me hon. I really don't mind it. I have had another guy call me babe & it was fine.

Ooops I do call my friends hon and i dont care what they call me as long as it isnt anything rude.lolMost of them call me darling hon etc as well as nick names. I know if i have pissed them off if they say Antony.We tell each other i love you as well(only my close ones and family).However when i am going out with a potential boyfriend it takes me a long time before i would even consider something like that.I will make sure i dont address anyone in those terms on this site.

Usually I just ignore it. If you stick with a conversation, it usually becomes pretty obvious whether the person is saying it just out of some habit like Antony described, or if they're one of those weird internet people who think you're going to fall in love with them if they say surreal romance-novel one-liners to you. Obviously, if it's the latter, I just stop talking to them.

I call guy's Babe all the time, it's just the way i address everyone male or female. If they get offended i apoligise but no one has ever pulled me up on it yet. I even call ppl i dont fancy Babe.

Yeahhh ..I admit I can get that way myself and I've been called out on it by only one person here when I used it (U know who U are ..it's cool). So I try not to use those terms now unless I've reached some level of endearment with a person. So I'll try to avoid it ...but we all know what they say about old habits. :-)
