She is in the wrong. It is disrespectful towards you and I would bet that she is planning on trying to steal him from you later on and she is just working on him right now, trying to get him to like her more. You are not overreacting.
No it's not okay... it's like another woman calling your husband her husband, not okay? Right?
I don't think you're overreacting, and if it's making you uncomfortable, then you certainly are entitled to react however you wish.
Clearly you boyfriend hasn't set boundaries with his female friends I presume?
Therefore you need to set some boundaries in place (it may be bitchy, but bitchy is necessary here)...
Next time this "friend" calls your boyfriend sweety or honey, just chime in and say "I thought he was my boyfriend, so MY sweety/honey" and then smile at her, don't say it too aggressively, say it in a calm nice way.
And if she still don't stop, then next time you just take her to the side and have a word her.
Though quite honestly, it should your boyfriend who should be dealing with it, and say to his friend himself that she needs cool off with the pet names.
Its not a problem as it can be a cultural thing or tradition. Some people say it out of adoration for the person. But if this is not okay by you, then you need to speak up about this and not tolerate something you don't approve.
Maybe a little bit of overreacting but everyone is different. If it bothers you when she calls him that then respectfully tell her that it makes you uncomfortable and to stop, just don't fight with her and don't bottle it up. Not saying anything it will make it worse :)
If it was my boyfriends female friend and she had always called him that before he met me then I'd be fine with it. But if she was a new friend then I'd definitely have a problem with it. It's like me calling his friends hunny or sweety, I wouldn't. Cause those names are just for him.
In all honesty, you should confront her, not rudely, but in a kind way. If anyone called my boyfriend that besides his mom, I would definitely feel uncomfortable. I think you should just politely confront her and tell her that you're not comfortable with her calling him that. you should also keep on eye on body language, but other wise if it doesn't stop, and if she doesn't listen, you need to tell your boyfriend
Where I am from that's a pretty normal thing to call people. I wouldn't be worried. As long as you know what she means nothing by it.
