Red face "Oh, SWEETHEART."

So, I don't know if I'm the only one, but I HATE when somebody calls me sweetheart, honey, baby, etc. I find it incredibly condescending. It's very common for girls my age to use these little pet names, and I can't stand it. Guys I'm talking to will also do it. I don't know that everyone means it to sound so demeaning, but regardless, I automatically assume they do mean it that way.

My logic: Whenever I refer to someone with one of these names, I mean to make them feel dumb.

^Haha, that makes all the sense in the world doesn't it? Anyway, do any of you feel the same?


BTW this is my 4th poll TONIGHT. I'm talented (which really means I have no life...).

Only sometimes. Those are names only my parents use on me, and they usually use them with affection (not to be condescending) and it doesn't bother me at all.

Wait--Now I think about it, a girl did call me sweetheart once. It really irritated me, because although I think she was trying to be nice, the way she said it was like she thought she was oh so much older and wiser than me, when she was only a few years older. But she's a sweet person and I don't think she meant to come across that way.

I only say these words when I'm talking down to a younger person, making fun of someone or to a very close friend (Since they do it to me right back.) I don't think it's the worst thing to be called, seeing as there are plenty of other terms that I'd rather not be called.

Default Re: "Oh, SWEETHEART."

I hate it when someone I'm not close to calls me names like that. I'd call a close friend by one of them and wouldn't mind at all if they called me one back, and I'm fine with my mom using them on me.
I do use pet names for some people online, though, but I'm pretty familiar with those people.

I hate it all ways around. I also hate it when friends call each other "babe" or "love" and they are just platonically friends.

With certain people, it's fine. Like besides my parents, there are two or three adults that I'm fine with them calling me pet names like that. If someone my age just randomly started calling me honey, even of they were a friend, I would probably get annoyed.

It depends on who's saying it. xD
If it's my dh, then I love it! If it's a random guy trying to sell me a car, then NO.
I use affectionate terms for my famiy, but rarely for anyone else. ..except little kids, I sometimes call them sweety.
