I just cringe for him.

If we're not in a relationship then it's even weirder.

Calling your girlfriend 'baby'..... because you just have to remind her that she's an annoying, diminutive creature that spends most of her time crying, pooping and requires constant attention.


Best comment in the whole thread


Negative much? I love babies even when they're crying and pooping. They're fascinating, beautiful, and endearing to me, and they're good company so I don't mind giving them attention. I'm not a huge person, I cry once in a while, and I do No.2 on occasion because I'm human. I don't ever really seek attention as I'm fairly introverted, but I guess everyone needs a little attention at some point, so even if someone meant exactly what Kaiser wrote when they use the term baby it still wouldn't be terribly insulting. In all seriousness though, I think I get why some folks get irritated with pet names and the whole familiarity thing. And, It's good to be a little wary sometimes.

It's like saying "it's cute." It's diminishing. It makes things small.

Saying "baby" chops a small part of what you are.

^This, but I don't mind it when old people (20+ years older than me) call me that.

If they are gay and we are friends than I'm usually ok with it (just like I would be ok with one of my female friends using them, though not many would use such terms towards me). Any other male (outside of a committed relationship) just NO I don't like it. It implies that we are closer then we really are, and I don't like it when people try to level jump in any type of relationship. I also don't like it when male acquaintances try to make sexual jokes directed at me (it's not funny and really creepy). Both cases are usually followed by a very awkward silence and me giving him an, "I'm not amused," look.

I really dislike 'baby' as a pet name. It makes me feel like I'm being condescended to and having my opinions dismissed. This from anyone, no matter how well I know them.

In general I find pet names a bit awkward, but on the bright side the only person who calls me one ("honey") on a regular basis is my mother, so. -Shrug-

To me, it's only appropriate when I say it in relationships.
That went for my ex's as well.

However, only some liked being called baby - the others hated it and preferred words like darling, dear, or sweetheart.
The amount of affection in the word depends on the person or the couple that uses it.

Now, outside relationships - I have never called a girl baby. I don't even think I've said it to be funny either. It just feels awkward.

A lot of my Hispanic and African-American friends have like.. NO problem in calling girls baby anywhere - whether it be in the mall, park, or etc. The girls that they talk to don't seem to mind either. Unfortunately, the ones who they call baby are usually trashy and.. trashy. Not saying that girls who like being called baby are all trashy - it's just the ones in my life are.

Besides them, most girls that I've met in my life are very uncomfortable with being called baby in public or outside a relationship. I don't know anything about guys though. I don't really have a preference. My ex's used to call me baby all the time but I never gave it a second thought. The word also seems to intensify in the bedroom as I've also discovered.

So true. Advances in science and medicine can be such a pain sometimes. You look pretty young in that picture though. I didn't realize they had cameras back then.

What are you talking about? You know that's a picture of your mom. Just ask your daddy. Your mom took this picture of him shortly afterwards.
