This man is 20 years older than I am! Don't judge! He's very Christian Grayish... sexy, fit and super sweet. Everything is great.. especially the sex... but the one thing bothering me is him calling me "cutie" or "cutie pie" in text messages as if I'm his daughter... it kind of grosses me out. I don't like it at all but am not sure how to tell him without being too rude or mean...
People don't really respond well to you telling them something they thought was endearing and sweet, is grossing you out. I mean, would you? Just start calling yourself something else in your texts back or tell him what you'd like to be called because it makes you feel really good to hear that nickname. Maybe he'll get the hint, but even if he doesn't, don't let it spoil what you describe as a good thing.
People use different affections to call their SO. Their popularity comes and goes. Calling someone cutie pie used to be more common, so I wouldn't read anything into it, other than it's just the affection he uses. However if you don't like it, next time he does it, just tell him directly that you don't like it. It shouldn't be a big deal to him at all.
Well just ask him why does he treat you like a child etc. I'm sure he doesn't mean to patronize you but when I love / like someone a lot I tend to call her similar names but by no means do I treat her as such. I treat her as a mature individual :)
Cutie or cutie pie sound fine to me. I dont see anything incest about it. Very common SO names. But if it really bothers you that much then just simply talk to him. You are both mature enough to be able to communicate if you going to want the relationship to continue, communication has to be a part of it as well as honesty
No problem with a younger one seeing an older one. Most of society sees an issue with that which the asshole prudes have YET to prove what is wrong with it if it works! Tell him tactfully. Respectfully aproach the issue with plain English like in your GAG question here... But in person. Not a text!
just be straight up. he'll appreciate it. just leave out the makes me feel like your daughter part. Just say "I don't like you calling me that" and that should be all he needs for explanation. If not just say because you think the word is ugly or something girls do that all the time.
