Does a guy calling a girl sweet mean he's not interested in her? I called a guy sweet and he was insulted saying he thought I didn't think him date-worthy. Personally, I thought he read too much into it.
But a guy referred to me as being sweet and I wonder is he interested in me or not?
I think you're right - that other guy read way too much into it. "Sweet" can mean a lot of things.
If I call a girl "sweet," it doesn't necessarily mean that I'm interested in dating her. It also doesn't mean I'm not interested! Don't make the same mistake as that other guy by reading too much into it :)
Personally, sounds like Karma. But that being pushed aside; Yes he's interested. Usually when I call a woman sweet, it's to provoke a response. She thinks she has to (if she likes me) step up her sexy a degree or two. Why? Because "girls" are sweet. Uptight-I-have-only-had-one-drinking-experience-in-my-life girls are sweet. No woman, wants to be thought of as sweet. Especially if she pays bills and knows how to make coffee.
I think he is, but it really depends on the person. A girl told me once that I was kind and nice and sweet, and I soon found out that she really liked me. But I could see some mean, bitchy stuck up girl saying that about anyone she only saw as a friend, just her way of being nice and not being mean. Like I said it depends on the person. If they come off as a nice person, he or she, depending on if you're a guy or a girl, probably likes you
I've told girls they were sweet. If they were sweet, I just say it. It's a compliment if anything, but would it have anything to do with the meaning of a girl being date-worthy or not? Not unless he really wants or doesn't want a girl who's sweet.
What I'm saying is, saying someone is sweet doesn't really mean much in this case.
I can sorta see why he felt a little insulted. I mean, well I like it when girls call me sweet. But it does kinda song like "aww your sweet, but I'll never date you". Don't ask why it sounds like that, it just does. But as a guy calling a girl sweet? Some words as a man, I just don't use. For example...SWEET!. lol I can't see myself calling anybody sweet. Maybe my girlfriend when we dated for like a year and I feel comfortable to say anything around her. But if I wanted to say something around that area, I would probably say something like " wow, you're a nice person lol or something like that. Not sweet. Sounds too I think some words only females should use. So I don't know what He's getting at.
I've called a couple girls 'sweet' before. It didn't mean much of anything, it was usually just when they'd said something cute or thoughtful about whatever. It wasn't a big deal, I wouldn't put too much thought into it.
When somone (guy or girl) calls someone "sweet" it generally means that one is trying to be nice while letting someone down easy. Just think about it...when someone gives you a gift, but you really don't like it, what would you say if they asked did you like the gift? "Awww, that' was so sweet of you" The word is viewed as condescending.
