In their youth it was probably already a hackneyed term used on them by Lotharios, so they turned it around and made a joke out of it. I'm not a user of such names often. Their are worse things to be called, And maybe they didn't get much of an impression from you, So they adapted. So, in other words, some women encourage this behaviour. However, I did call my wife a pet name.
Your name , come here please! I have encountered this in the bar scene expecially as a professional musician. They guy is expressing himself. Honestly, I don't mind someone calling me by a pet name. She would question why I stopped sometimes. Replace those blanks areas with either your name, or a pet name, and you might see the difference.
I guess these are considered words of endearment and I don't get this at home. These weathered old harridans still using them now probably long ago co-opted them to refer to male customers with a hint of facetiousness. They don't seem to mind either. Least someone is talking to you! I also love doll' and doll face. Usually they have cigarettes-and-whiskey voices and are wearing coral polyester stretch pants with a slightly mismatched striped polo.
If you don't like it, consider that he isn't worth your time and find someone that calls you Fred. Actually worrying about that won't help either. Doll Baby is an archaic but not unheard of term of endearment. Hope that helps you sweetiepie, muffin, cutie, lovey-dovey, duckie. Picture an old diner waitress calling you that as she refills your coffee. I honestly think we don't mesn harm, but are trying to show endearment.
Whoever made the observation that it's common from elderly, whiskey-voiced, nicotine-clouded battleaxes in polyester stretch pants is right on the mark. A comet is coming that is going to incinerate all of us, And their is nothing you can do about it. I've heard older ladies say, doll baby a few times. I have a first name and rather be called that then - baby - sweetie - honey - I have a first name so why don't they use it?. Although some guys don't even realize the insult.
Than trying to remember the name of some dame you met just outside of Chicago, Four years ago. Of course, the internet makes people feel more distanced from each other, which emboldens a man to call gals pet names even when he doesn't know her. I think men actually used these terms to woo women way back in the day. Their name is usually Beulah or Selma and they often have plenty to say about the aching corns on their feet. It kinda annoy's the crap out of me; Especially considering all these people know my real name is Wickens and I'd rather be called that. Especially the ones I haven't spoken too or even exchanged emails.
The only time I will call anyone a nickname is when I'm being sarcastic for example: oohhh muffin. He will generally use words that make him feel more at ease, and settle on a common lingo to interact with others. My friends and I use these terms jokingly with each other, usually when asking a favor or pointing out something unpleasant but obvious. And their is a lot more stuff to worry about on the planet. As they call me some form of pet name in return. .
