Girlfriend doesn't like me calling her dude?

Lol why does this bother her. We've been dating two years moving in together soon. I was in the marine corps so I talk a certain way and say dude and bro a lot. Is it really that bothersome? I think it's better than bae.

  • I wouldn't want to be called dude or bro if I was in a relationship with my partner.. it's like friend zoning someone even though your in a relationship with them.. Haha.. Try words of endearment man..

  • Eh, it could just be a pet peeve. A lot of girls don't mind it, but some do, thinking it sounds more friendship-y. Anyway, if she doesn't like it, don't call her "dude" or "bro."

  • It matters a lot. she's ur girlfriend not one of the guys. she's on a different level. So act like it and try calling her affectionate names like baby, love, sweetheart, dear... etc...

  • Nah I find it funny.

    She probably thinks it makes her feel like one of the guys; ie, less feminine. Call her something cute and corny, maybe. Like, puddingtop or muffin. Hahaha

  • Using "dude" to refer to any individual is pretty fringe. Traditionally, it only refers to males. Be thankful she doesn't want to be male. Also she might prefer you call her something that you don't call your buddies. Pet names are popular because people like to have a special, reserved position in their SO's life. By calling her dude she might feel like she's just another friend to you. Would you call your dad Jimbo as though he were any old guy whose name you know? Calling him Dad signifies his importance to you.

    But yeah, anything is better than bae.

  • she's a lady and your gf, treat her like one. Also I know marines and they don't say dude or bro, that seems like more of a young teen thing.
