    Me and this guy hang out from time to time cuz we haven't seen each other for almost 2 years. He knows I'm in a relationship so he usually keeps his distance. Well the other day I told him I was sick since he asked how I was doing and he called me baby. How do I tell him to not call me that without it ending up really awkward?

    Perhaps you’re reading too much into it
    He was probably offering you sympathy for being ill
    “Poor baby” for example
    Some girls call their friends “babes” (eughhhh)
    It doesn’t mean anything
    If he does it face to face then you could say please don’t call me that but it’s not a big deal. He knows where he stands

    It's probably nothing, just see if it carries on. I had a friend who kept doing similar things to me, it was like he kept testing the waters to see how I'd react when he said something
