What does it mean when a guy calls you "hun"?

This guy likes me but hasn't talked to me since I don't even remember when. He talked to me yesterday and sounded excited when I said something back to him. Today he called me hun. He has also called me sweetie before does this mean anything?

  • He's flirting with you or you guys already have nicknames? I tend to call my girlfriend "Hello Sweetie", "Honey", "Hun", and "Baby/Babe".

  • It's like a act of kindness mostly opposite sex uses it on each other
    for example a girl calls a guy Hun or Guy calls a girl Hun it may mean
    nothing than again he may like you is why he's calling you names like
    "Hun", "Sweetie" it could be form of being affectionate towards you
    really hard to say f the guy likes you he should communicate more
    with you than what he does.

  • i didn't know it was really a thing for guys to say that… i'm used to "hun/hon" being used by older ladies. i wouldn't think much of it, especially with the age difference. he's probably just trying to be friendly...

  • If you noticed that he's getting flirty, hun is obviously meant flirty. It's just a cute small baby step toward calling you something more obvious like "sweetheart", "gorgeous" or any other nickname.
    Trust your judgement - if he's being flirty, that's just what it is.

    (But just for the sake of completion, I sometimes call friends (female) "hun" when I don't want to call them an idiot, e. g. when they don't get stuff in uni that is super obvious)

  • I've heard it used a lot from one who is older to someone younger. Mild term of affection, can be really annoying to me personally. I mean I get some people just use that because that is what they have always heard being used, where I come from, it is short for "honey" like the pet name used between lovers.

  • It means different things to different people but I don't like when people call me and nicknames like that. To me it sounds degrading.

  • When he wants to possess you 😂 . I mean when he starts to be possessive about you, you are his honey. ☺

  • One of two, if he said that I'd presume its a short for Hon-ey so he is either not in your game (married, gay, feels superior adult) or that is a foreign figure of speech.

  • it depends on the guy i call a lot of women sweetie but that's a girlfriend only term itself... it's very likely he likes you but there's also a small chance he just made hun your nickname

  • It's a term of endearment usually reserved for those we're close to. I don't think there's any hidden meaning. You can always ask if he wants more

  • Be careful with that word. Depending on the guy, and how he uses it, it could mean something completely different.

    The 3 ways I have seen guys use the word "hun" are:

    1. To be degrading and or condescending.

    2. He's genuine and is using hun as short for honey

    3. (How I've used it) As a joke between friends

    I could explain them all, but if someone ever calls you hun you will know how they're using it. They all have such a distinct sound to them that they might as well be different words

  • He’s either flirting (since you said he likes you) or just being friendly... ie: sometimes people will say “how are you doing love” which could be like saying pal. I guess... before I started dating this guy he was always super nice, made big offers and he always called me boo 😂 big sweetie.
