One word that can make you want to punch a man in the face

I had been dating someone and he would call me baby. The way he did it made me want to drop my panties on the spot. I found this so odd. Some men do it and it makes you cringe, others it is sweet and endearing. So like in all things I had to message a friend about this to see if I was alone in this.

Why is it that when some men call you baby it’s a total turn off and others it’s totally fucking hot…and I mean men that you are dating….seems weird….some guys say and it creeps me out, others it’s causes more of a bed me now reaction..

Ummm….great question because you’re so right on about it!

Me

I just don’t get it

Cuz some guys say it and you want to punch them

J

Bad.

And then run.

Like it makes u literally ill.

Me

lol, yep

 

I can only assume that it has to do with underlying attraction and animal magnetism. My current fella says “baby” and I want to curl up into his arms and stay there forever, or until I need to pee. Which seems to be the best reaction. Sorry for the sappy. That is just where I am right now. I know; it’s revolting! Anyway, it isn’t just me!

when is it ok?

Ok, I’ve been on my own for almost 10 years so CLEARLY I need some help here ;-). When in the dating procedure is it ok to tell a guy you want them? (Yes, It is a procedure. It is a painful series of steps that you have to get just right…and I never do.) Common sense tells me that men are happy to hear that a woman wants to have sex with them at any point, but if it is too early on does it give the wrong impression? I went with sometime after you are having sex. I can’t help but think that if the timing isn’t just so it may be a relationship killer.

Now, I have absolutely no quantifiable evidence of this. It just seems that it’s something that falls into the realm of men’s double standard peculiarities. I would love for men to comment on this. (I will tally it up and not do statistical analysis on it…just for fun.)
