Sweetheart? What does it really mean in this context?

Me to him: Hey there! I didn't want you thinking that I was reading into anything that happened last Saturday night. As much fun as that was, a friendship is all I am looking for. You told me some things about your life and job that was causing you to drink, etc. as much as you do. I just wanted to check in and make sure that you are in fact, okay? Other than you being a regular customer and just hearing about your relationship with a certain someone, getting to know you would've been and still would be cool. If you ever need to talk or just chill with someone that isn't in your normal crowd, I got you! I live down the road, maybe 5 mins. Just call or text.

His reply: Thank you sweetheart
