Are you ok with saying "baby, babe" to your SO? Are you also ok with "daddy, papi, mami, etc"?

I see that more people are ok with saying "babe" and "baby". But when people hear "daddy, papi, mami", it sounds more creepy. And that whole "it sounds incestuous", but then, does calling them your "baby" make it pedophilic?

Personally, "babe" and "daddy" are creepy to me. Or they were. My first ex got bothered that I refused to call him it and he didn't really like the nickname I gave him lol XD
But it was just weird to me. But then, I guess with enough bugging, I finally called him babe/baby and was like meh. But "daddy/papi/mami" still seem weird to me.

I don't really like either though. I prefer to say "mi amor (my love)" or a nickname I give them.

Are y'all ok with both? With one but not the other? Either?

  • The biggest hypocrisy that I fuckin' hate about the daddy thing.

    Like people won't hesitate to call me weird and judge me to the moon and back for calling someone daddy, but then when they get called baby suddenly it's fine? It's alright? It's kosher? There's no correlation?

    Fucked up, annoys the shit out of me.

    • Hispanic, I think it's more Puerto Rican and Caribbean types.

      I'm not into that lol

    • damn i should have said hispanic lol. or anything "Spanish", wow i really dont know how to word this lol.

      well since I don't speak the language im not into mami or papi either, plus it sounds extremely childish lol.

  • I would have no problem calling my girlfriend "baby" (although i don't like "babe" because i think it sounds kinda ghetto and insincere). But because I've always used the term "baby" for a girlfriend, I'd be uncomfortable with calling my (hypothetical) son or daughter "baby".

  • A for me... okay if she'd absolutely want to call me daddy I wouldn't send her away for it but I'm not a fan :o
    Maybe I'd find it okay if we had kids together since for the kids I'd be daddy :D

  • It all sounds either incestuous, or as if I was putting her down and treating her like a child.

    I just call them by name. They have a name for a reason.

  • I definitely don't like daddy talk. And papi and mami feel like the same thing, so nope.

    Babe and baby don't bother me, but they're not my favorite either. I'd prefer we came up with our own names, along with the occasional sweetie/darlin/honey.

  • My wife called me babe from time to time. I am ok with it.

    I don't want anyone but my son or daughter to call me "daddy"

    A woman I am kinda dating calls me corazon and sometimes huerito guapo (handsome white boy?). I find that amusing.

    • Oh, this same woman refers to her own children (they're grown up now ) as "mami" and "papi" which I find bewildering.

  • I typically say whatever comes to mind. The papi/mami thing does nothing for me, because I am hispanic.

    I have also never called anyone but my father "daddy", come to think about it!

  • I only use "babe" occasionally. I feel like Mami and Papi are between certain Latino groups. The one Mexican girl I dated hated being called Mami but her brother and his girlfriend always called each other that.

  • Well, I would think "babe" is not so bad, because who calls their children babe? ... I've never heard anyone call them babe... Only boyfriend girlfriend...

    Baby, papi, mami, daddy, etc... Are just gross... But baby would be less gross, simply because you don't call your baby, "baby" .. You usually call them some other nickname, or their own name... But you do call your parents daddy. Mommy, etc... Rather than heir names... Which is why it's more disgusting to me to say daddy to a boyfriend... And so on.. It just seems wrong.. But baby , babe.. Only pass because you don't actually referr to your child as baby... You just know they are babies... But not call hem that...

    Anywayyyy, I don't say babe, baby or any of these other weird things to my boyfriend.
