  • Absolutely not, unless the person is a family member, relative, or childhood old friend whom he does not have feelings for other than brother and sister type of relationship, but that's for "hun." I don't know and can't think of whom can be called "babe" besides significant other, or a partner.

  • Not unless its a sister or a best friend they've known for more than 20 years or somebody extremely unattractive and poor.

  • If it's a regular part of her vernacular, I'm not worried about it. But if she uses it sparingly and with men in particular, and with those whom she speaks to regularly or flirtatiously, I'll probably get jealous and bring it up.

  • with babe, no. but with hun, you can get away with it because there are a lot of women who calls both men and women "hun" even if they're strangers.

    • I totally agree that "babe" is a no for me, and "hun" is okay, but depending who the person is.

  • Depends on the context for me.

  • It seems to be too personal a greeting for someone they are not supposed to be attached to emotionally. It would be like me calling a guy hot stud when I text someone if I were in a relationship.

  • Only if he confuses the chats. Happened to my boyfriend once, he wrote "good morning, honey!" to my married bestfriend xD since then our half friendgroup are making fun of them both to be secretly together.

  • I was fine with it before but a lot of my guy friends use the word ‘hun’ or ‘babe’ and it feels overused for me now. Feeling that way about a friend, I don’t think I would like it in a relationship. More because it’s annoying.

  • Depends on the context. I use it sometimes with my friends and the intention is usually of jest sometimes it's for mocking the other party.

    But if they're flirting, absolutely not.

  • I was dating a guy who called every girl "babe" and guess what this word really lost its charm for me. After knowing this I kind of lost interest in him and treated him just another horny guy on street.

    • Well if one calls everyone something then ofc its not going to charm the one's date, and especially not SO

  • I think saying hun is fine, but babe for me is someone your interesting in being more than just a friend with.

  • If they have done that from the first time you met it is probably thier way of talking. The English and Australians call people love. It dont necessarily mean anything. But if they just started doing it that would raise some flags to me.

  • I've always found babe and hun to be more condescending than it is endearing. I think the context would matter for if it were ok.

  • In my Irish dialect, we call everyone "me dear" and "ducky". But I'd only use "babe" for a significant other.

  • Depending on their dialect and habits, yes it can be. I for example am from Kentucky and call everyone hun all the time because that's what my family and the people around me would do when I was growing up. I see it as a term of endearment and respect, not necessarily affection. Though, it can double as both.
