My boyfriend feels weird calling me babe, yet he'll call his friends babe. What does this mean?

The other day I called him out on calling his friends babe more than me, and that's when he said that calling me it feels weird. Him and his friends (that he met on Xbox) are as straight as a ruler, and the one he calls babe the most has a girlfriend who I occasionally talk to. I don't think he means it in a romantic way to them, but why does it feel weird for him to say it to me?

  • "Babe" is his comical term of endearment for his buddy. You are his girlfriend and serious, not a joke. So he doesn't want to call you the same thing. Just ask him to call you "hun". Problem solved.

  • Since he's known his friends for a long time maybe, he has gotten real comfortable with them and is comfortable enough to call them babe. However, since you are his girlfriend, its probably different. he's not comfortable enough to call you babe as he is with his friends. Guess it just takes time

  • The word doesn't have the same meaning for everyone. Calling a girl babe would be weird for me because i use it too much as a joke with guys at work and in school and sports

  • To him the word has a different connotation so calling you "babe" would feel the same as calling you "bro"

  • I would possibly see it as a joke, but if you truly get upset and he cares for you, he would stop and maybe call you babe. I love being called babe tbh

  • That's the point. He doesn't want to call you the same way he calls hos friends.
