Don’t Call Me Baby!

Don’t call me baby!

This guy, we’ll call him Sugar Lips (see how he likes them apples!), has been calling me ‘baby’ since the very first day that I met him. Instant turnoff! He’s been leaving this epithet on my FB wall ( for all to see -_- ), in my inbox *shown above*, on my voicemail and anywhere else he can find. I can’t take it! Especially since I’ve NEVER gone out with this man! Never! Who does this!?

Pet names like ‘baby’, ‘sweet heart’, ‘big booty Judy’ (<–my personal favorite), lose meaning when used on STRANGERS. And I know that some guys use it to show their endearment. But how can you be endeared to someone that you just met. I mean, you could very well be endearing yourself to a blood sucking vampire. With all these nuclear tests and global warming, it’s definitely a possibility.

My advice to men : use these terms SPARINGLY.

A girl wants to know that she means something to a guy. If he’s tossing these words around all willy-nilly, their meaning becomes watered down, like an icy beverage left in the car too long. Just like no one wants to drink that mess, no one wants to hear a meaningless ‘baby’ or ‘babe’.

So just do me a favor and don’t call me baby!

    Oh.My.God I thought I was the only one having a problem with this! *ReBlog*

    A lot of the guys I meet that end up with my phone number just happen to text me using the word ‘Baby’. Like I’m sorry I must have skipped the part where we were dating or known each other for a long time.

    BTW I just came across your blog and I’m OBSSESSED! Lol

    I thought I was the only one finding this annoying. It so happens that the guys i meet that end up with my number, texts me with the word ‘baby’ in it. Like I’m sorry, I must have missed the part where we knew each other for a long time, or we were dating.

    BTW I just came across one of your posts, and I’m now OBSESSED with your blog!

    totally agree! The whole ‘baby.. babe.. hun..’ thing early on is a total turn-off.
