When older woman do it, it's cool.


TabbsTheBat

Hate it

If they're geriatric then I find it adorable. Basically the younger the person saying it is the less I appreciate it. If a 20-something tried using a pet name like that I'd assume I was being mocked.


gerginborisov

Weird. Pet names are acceptable only if you know the person.


Electrical_Skirt3900

Love it. I'm a sexy man.


marousha_n

👍😂😂😂


Radiant-Sample-5351

I don't mind. I am a sweetheart


gerbageman

feels good.


Deep_Complaint5331

Don't care


BassGoBoom_20

It's a pretty common thing in the South. We don't mean anything weird by it. Just trying to be nice. But if it makes someone uncomfortable I won't continue to do it.


lightarcmw

SigmaNotDepressed

batting1000bob

Love it. Reminds me of mom


Sudden_Maybe_3530

I say it sometimes to random women, mainly because they do something kind for me(holding the door, handing me something, or any random act of kindness) I haven’t had any bad reactions, you just gotta be careful how you use it


Responsible_Wonder_7

There’s something about an older black woman calling me “baby” or “sweetheart” that just makes me melt. I’m grew up in the south so this is a common occurrence


marousha_n

It depends on the context. Some people use darling or sweetheart as appellations, and contrary to popular belief, most people i met that used them are women. I never had a man calling me any of those, but half of the women around me.do. The british ones especially.


plscallmeRain

I get it, sometimes you're just used to speaking that way and it comes out.


Writy_Guy

I like it.


psycho_reee

My friends black mother call my suger ..... And it makes me feel comfortable


Normal_Gap9231

Or "buddy". shudder


radkiller22

If it's a southern woman or elderly woman it's cool, if it's a twenty/thirty something dude from the Bronx that's sus as hell


Icy-Letterhead-2837

Confusing. They obviously don't know me.


OwnAd853

it's condescending and I hate it


rp1997

As a man, it feels slightly weird, and i cannot imagine how awful it must feel when a creepy dude calls a woman "sweetheart"


Hooked_on_Avionics

A barista at my local Starbucks calls me hun. I find it weird, but mostly because she's easily ten years younger than me, and that feels like something you'd say to someone younger right?


mdhhv

If my pet doesnt care why should I


erisod

I like it myself


vox35

Not common around here. If I was in the southern US or certain parts of England or whatever, I'd try my best to accept it as a cultural difference. But it makes me uncomfortable. On some level it feels insincere, patronizing, or even manipulative to me, although I know that's not the intention most of the time.


WaterfallDragonCave

I don't mind, if they are female. If they are men, it's creepy.


saucysucculentsister

thats fucking weird


chemicalnick

I hate it…I moved to Louisiana for about 5 years and in the location I was in, someone would call me love at least once a day. It makes me feel like it devalues the severity of love


kittymariag

I dont mind todlers,children,eldery but middel age noooo
