Do you think it is appropriate for a man to call a woman Hun or Honey in public?? I have noticed that some times this happens to me at Walmart and it really does not offend me because I am flirty anyway, but my brother did it to a lady one time and she smacked him and told him no way would she be called that, when is it that a man crosses the line with sexual harrassment.

YOU should always address any woman as mrs. or miss,or mam, or by her first name if you no her,otherwise dont speak to her,just smile and move on,If she wants to talk to you she will say so.lots of luck.

If I am romantically involved with the man, okay. Otherwise, it is a real turn off.

It does not bother me a bit to be called hun or honey. Most people don't mean anything by it. I would much rather be called hun than ma'am.

Mybe if a 70 yr old man had to pass me with his cart in walmart and he said, 'excuse me hun', then I'd have no prob with it,if it was said in a polite fatherly/uncle type manner. If Studly Do Wrong did the same thing, I'd probably stick my nose in the air and take my time. There's a difference in how a man can say that to a woman, any woman.

most men maybe not all but i say 99% don't mean nothing insulting about it at all. Just a kind jester. here in are area its just old school men and women have always talked like that but no way should a man call a man hun or honey just an't the way where we live. smile and go on most women would find it will make her smile and feel better the ones that are insulted mabe they would rather be addressed as bit.h cause in my book if that makes you mad then bit.h get over it they are not coming on to you and thats what makes you mad..

If some guy who thinks he can flirt with me by calling me that, even though he sees the wedding band on my finger, then yeah I'm gonna be a b!tch to him. It's disrespectful. If he wants to say it to any ole skank who can't get a compliment and she's flattered by it then goody. They can have the pervert who walks by women, skanks or decent women, and calls them hun or honey.

I enjoy being called hun or honey it goes in one ear and out the other and forgot about if he smiles and goes on now if he was following me around with his tongue hung out asking me to meet him that would be a different story but most mean nothing but just being sweet i think you could tell the difference. A sad life a person lives to think every man is hitting on them I wouldn't want to be like you!!!!

I don't think the man is necessarily hitting on me. I think with most men it is habit and they do not mean anything by it. But I still don't like it. I think honey/hun is a term of endearment and I do not want to hear it from a stranger or casual acquaintance.

So if a cute female cashier calls a guy "hon" or "honey", how many of you (males) are going to say that's a problem?

You people are so uptight it's ridiculous - it's just a common phrase around here, and it usually means NOTHING flirtatious coming from either a man or a woman.

How about this - if you are called something you don't like, politely tell the guy/girl this and never let it happen again.

I know of 2 situations where a boss told female employees to quit calling the clients/patients "honey". One was in an office setting; another in a Dr's office. One of the women was calling both men and women honey. One woman was just calling women honey. It was viewed as non professional for the work setting.

I've been out plenty of times when a waitress or cashier (usually an older woman) called ME hon, or honey...I don't see any problem with it either way. Why is it ok for women to do it but not men? Double standards are ridiculous.

Not a double standard in my mind. I don't want a woman calling me honey either. Just one of my many quirks.
