    My flatmate calls me darling

    My other gay flatmate calls me babe sometimes

    Some other guys call me babe too. It doesnt mean they like me. It is simply a term of affection

    If guys like you, believe me they text you

    "babe" should be reserved for couples only. I hate when random people call me babe...I mean, why would you?!

    ...my mind is blank, I totally don't get what you're saying about the texting lmao. Do you mean guys never text, its always girls who do? Hmm...I don't know about that, I know a load of guys who text...and the girls don't lol.

    When someone says they're not interested, and then they start looking at you like Puss in Boots, I think its safe to say that they like you.

    As for the babe thing...uh, maybe it's affectionate. Depends if you've ever given off that type of signal. Maybe he's just giving the signal back. Or maybe, he's just more comfortable around you than he used to be.

    I was walking through the city yesterday, and this hot girl approached me trying to flog Simcards....she called me darling, I just walked off.

    I call people 'dear' quite a lot. Doesn't mean I fancy them, it's just a friendly affection thing

    ... and I also don't agree with the texting thing :P

    Generally I find that if a guy likes you, he texts you. But then my boyfriend always leaves his phone places, like his bag, or his car. And then he doesn't get it when I'm annoyed that he didn't text me sooner/at all. I think he's just getting lazy
    I only like being called 'babe' by my boyfriend, although I prefer it when he calls me 'darling', doesn't leave me feeling so much like a chav teen wife or a little talking pig.

    If guys are interested they will text back, and most guys will text back even out of politeness (well if they are half-decent IMO). I call my best girlmates allsorts of affectionate names. Babe, hun, doll, princess, pet, etc. Some like them, others dont and thats fine. I guess its cus i get called loads of nicknames too. I use it purely because its more personal than just saying "Hey", or "Heya" and less boring than saying "Hey Julia", or "Heya Mary"

    And yes, the im-not-interested to puppy-eyes look is my defence mechanism for when im pretty much blown away by someone, but cant help staring at them

    yep definately like puss in boots :P what i meant with the babe thing (this is for everyone on the thread)is that we were dating about a month ago and he never called me babe,we stopped dating because we just didnt have time and trivial stuff happened*ahem lol* when i txt him the other day he called me babe which was weird because we hadnt spoken for ages ..but i guess not all guys are the same on the txting issue,he did used to txt me now and again,but now he doesnt so i guess i should take the hint yeh?lol

    I'd take the hint. Though, it doesn't sound like either of you is the "bad guy". Perhaps he just used the word to...I dunno, suggest maybe you could still be friends. If he hadn't have used the word and just texted "hey". I think that's too damn bland.

    Also sometimes, those type of words just come out. For example, in real life...I never use the word "mate". But when I text, it's everywhere.

    Haha reminds me of the other topic about guys getting called cute.

    Usually means he likes you, whether as a friend, or more is up to u to find out,.

    I hate the word 'babe'. It just seems more vulgar to me and i wouldn't call a girl i genuinely liked 'babe'. Darling is so much nicer :suith: or sweetheart if it was at an advanced stage :love: or just friend Anything but babe.

    Heh, glad I'm not the only one, though I tend only to use it for people who are good friends.

    I find "babe" derogatory, but that's just me. Or it can be patronising. But hm in a text it can be a lot more casual so maybe it's just affectionate.

    I always see babe as showing less like.
    although after telling a guy i had a crush on him, and him admitting the same he started calling me babe.

    If my boyfriend did it though, i would personally string him up by his...unmentionables :P. I find it extremely disrespectful and weird.

    When we first started texting he used to do that.
    So i sent him a few helpful ones back like.
    What is my name.
    And when he replied with my name, okay then use it :P.

    Jeez. Surprised we are together lol.

    On a similar note...If a girl starts a text with "hey hun" that means she likes you right?

    Not necessarily, but it does mean she doesn't hate you

    Personally, I hate "babe", and hate "babes" even more. The only people who call me that are my most vapid acquaintances.

    Pet makes me feel like a puppy, and love's all right, but clearly insincere. Hon/sweetie is what most of my best mates call me, and darling is reserved for relationships.
