Have an opinion?
“Bae” makes me want to jump into a volcano. Never really cared for “honey” either.That’s more terms of endearment with a girl. If we’re talking about family, literally any term of endearment from my father lmfao. That better be stuff like “buddy”, “son”, etc. I was working an ice cream counter in college and some dad addressed his son, who was AT LEAST 8, as “honey” or “sweetie” or something, and I almost cringed to death. I remember just thinking to myself “high school is gonna be ROUGH for this poor kid”, haha. Mom calls you those things, dad does not. I’m sure someone will have some 2019-ish thing to say to that, but I’m sorry, it bugs me out, haha.
I can only think of Spanish words of endearment that I hate, as I have only loved in Spanish language. I don't like "cari", short for "cariño", which is equivalent to a short for "darling", would be like only saying "darl". I also dislike "gordi", which is only used in my country, and it's basically calling your partner "chubby". Also dislike calling "papi" or "mami" each other, it's weird to call your partner mommy or daddy. However most endarement words don't sound as awkward for me in English as in Spanish, maybe because it's not my mothertongue. Like "bebé" or "nena", they sounds more awkward to me than "baby".
I dislike practically all of them and never use them. I don't know why. Maybe it's because we don't really have such terms in Japanese besides honorary suffixes and such. What I prefer instead is to use nicknames that are tailored to the person, like a cute-sounding abbreviated form of their name (ex: "Ayu" instead of "Ayumi").
"Mish" instead of "Michelle", things of this sort.
My preferences for what people call me tend to match my usage preferences. I don't get offended or anything though if people call me "honey" or "darling" or "babe" or anything like that. It just doesn't feel quite right to me. It usually seems a tad forward, and I don't mind forward, but forward in a way like it's not paying so much attention to the individual (like "generic"). Whereas an abbreviated nickname or something that's tailored specifically to the person seems more attentive and affectionate to me.
Like, let's say I call you "darling". That seems kind of rude to me, even if we knew each other well and were close friends. I prefer something like "Beebee". Actually, that might still be rude and you might hate it, but at least from my perspective, it seems warmer at least in intent. :-D
Agree with all.
Men generally don't want to be called any name that is "cute" - we're fine with anything that portrays us as strong or manly.One of my nicknames is "bear", or "Oso" (bear in Spanish), and that's fine.
I used to have a dog named Oso. 😅
'Sweetie'... the only people that say it are old women and people pretending to be old women. Oh and 'love'... guys say it to me all the time, mostly guys around my dads age. They'd be like "Here, love, could you help us with somethin' and I'm always like 'I'm not your 'love'... I never say that but I think it.
Sweetie is a common one apperantly. Does it fit in the same category as 'hun'?
If you call another man "Daddy," it means you have zero respect for your father. You're not going to impress me by making me feel sorry and ashamed for your Dad.I don't know how the fuck this became so popular, but it makes me want to never have a daughter.
Not a big fan of "honey", but mostly because it reminds me of someone I know who is OBSESSED with Winnie the Pooh (despite being a grown adult) and has to call EVERYONE that, and loves to stylize it as "hunny" on everything. I think it's kinda weird, honestly.
Ugh, yes. Bae and Boo. God, I hate these terms a lot. My first ex used to call me Bae, I felt like kicking his butt times because I told him I don't like that word. One of my friend calls me "Boo" It irritates me. But he loves that word, so.. 😒
Bae. I can't stand that word, whether applied to me or not
Boo, after my Mother passed away my Mother inlaw started using the same term of endearment as my Mother did. I asked her to stop.
"Sugar tits"I hate being called sugar tits. Drives me nuts. Like, WTF does that even mean?
I think it means you've got some sweet tits? 🤔😂
I guess lol, but so lameeeee
baby babe or stuff like thatno thank you just call me my name peteror some nickname like pete is okand I would do the samecause otherwise baby and babe is sooo boringa person's name is sooo much more interesting to reffer to someone
Baby or bae (I really hate bae)Hun or honeyAnything too cutesy
Oh yeah I really hate bae
Honey.. dear.. Boo.. Bae.. Baby... I'm a grown man why refer to me as a being that dosent know how to hold their shits or feed tend to or care for themself.. Not helpless or unable to fend for myself.. So baby seems degrading if u think seriously
Literally hate all of them I'd be okay with a unique one that has special and is tied to me and only me
'Princess' was the only thing that came to mind, but looking at some of these other replies, the list is a little longer that just that.
My grandma used to call me sugarbooger I hated that. I'm from the South so it's actually quite common to call people darlin, babydoll etc.. Here especially women to guys and other women
My family is from Illinois and hell we act like we are from the south sometimes well I don't... my dad is too proper
I don't know yet, guess I'll find out when the time comes
Not any that come to mind except for my dad's which he has taken to the grave :)
I seriously hate being called baby like I'm not one to hate any words of endearment but for some reason that one gets my blood boiling
"sweetie," "cutie pie," would probably get on my nerves.
I dislike being called "sweetheart". Just call me by my name or my nickname.
I wouldn't want to be called baby or babe. I don't like that at all.
Dady son or any other family name by someone I have sex with during sex.(It's just extremely off)
Daddy or papi are not acceptable unless you are my child.
Sweetie because that's the name of our dog we just put to sleep plus most men use it in a demeaning way, not an endearing one anymore
I don't like:daddyBut I really don't like when someone calls me 宝贝 - baby in Chinese.. It makes me cringe, I don't know why.
Little girl I hate that I'm little but grown pay Bill's grown
Anything like babe. Not daddy either. That would be very uncomfortable and weird.
I hate being called "cute". I don't have a problem with being called daddy though...
Sweetie and what basically translates to cute chubby person.
I hate when people say "Son" like foo this Cali not NY
Not really, but I could never call my SO Babe, I'd just feel too much like everyone else... So I call her Man, or Dude 🤷🏽♂️😂
If a woman I love ever calls me by a pet name I don't like, I will let her know.
Slutty mommyI do like being called a slut though by my girlfriends.
Papi and daddy make me wanna puke 😂
Same here. 😂
SugarbuttHowever bootybutt is fine
Bootybutt?That's kinda redundant but okay
It's called a joke.
Oooh😮I've heard of those
Oh that's great then! So then you're aware that will make your comment redundant too right?😃Stfu.
"Do they see me? Do they know I exist? I know they do! I can tell by the way they waive their fists! Weirdo! Freak! Words of endearment ring in my ear as they cling to my tears!"
Daddy, boo, boy, kid.
Pumpkin. That just sounds so corny
I don't like a lot of them actually
I have a name for a reason
But it's so cute. 😭
I hate being called darling.
Babe, baby, anything that sounds like a cat call
I wouldn't like to be called pimple dick
Hon/sweetheartI hate them
I'm not sure, but I'll know it if I ever hear it!
Not really, unless it’s btch
I'm pretty flexible so it doesn't matter to me.
Always my fave "Love". 💛
Alright, I won't call you "most"...
You can call me Most my love😀
I tell guys " I'm not your problem, but I can be your answer."😉
"Baby" or "babe", I can't stand that.
Daddy, hun, or sweetie.
“Honey” it’s so cliche
Babe, Baby, Bae, Honey, Boo, Darling, Dear, Hun
Dont really care for boo
I do like daddy though @beebella 🤷
