Can a guy call a girl sweetie or any kind of pet name? They do it to me?

I've been noticing girls calling me sweetie here and there, not sure why I guess they're just being friendly since I don't even know them. Like the bartender, the girl at the gas station. etc. Maybe they think i'm twelve. haha Makes me wonder if it's ok for me to say the same kind of thing to girls? Not just cause she said it first, I could be like thanks sweetheart when she gives me my change or something like that.
