  • It's up to you, how close you two are if you want to call her 'babe' back. Most girls just say it offhandedly. It also might be an indication of interest, but you'll have to put the rest of her behaviour into it to figure that out.

What Guys Said 1

  • The appropriate response is to be cool, calm, and NOT to reciprocate, but to just take it as a mild compliment. In and of itself it means little, but it indicates friendship and/or admiration and affection. It's a term of endearment.

    So congratulations. :)

    • I feel like somebody owns me like i am property or may treat me poorly

    • Oh no. It's not a sign of ownership or mistreatment, in and of itself. It's a hopeful sign of familiarity and camaraderie. At least most of the time. :) I would NOT let it bother you at all.
