<quoted text>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!!!!
Well, I'm old enough to know the difference, thank you so much. You're not me and I don't think every guy out there that says that is hitting on me. As I said, I do know the difference and treat each guy accordingly. I have more respect for myself and how men look at me and treat me than to let the ones who are disrespecting me when they do say it, "go in one ear and out the other". I'm not that desxperate for it. I'm definitely glad I'm not you, either. If I were, I'd take any I could get with a smile.

Really. Good point.

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.
Yep, btdt. Men are different than women. I've heard little old ladies call my hubby hun in a checkout line then turn around and call me the same. THAT is no big deal. Making a long post short, though, I don't like being called hun or honey from a guy who's checking out my T or A. It's disrespectful and I don't tolerate it.Am I considered uptight and shrewish? Well, thank you very much. I'll take THAT as a compliment. Not offended at all. GUy's looking to score or flirt can take a hike. There seems to be a few on here who would appreciate those types of compliments so they're welcome to them. LOL

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.
I agree with you. We live in the south, it's a very common phrase. I use it all the time when talking to men or women. People with sensible intelligence can tell when it's used without meaning anything by it. The one that gets me is usually "baby". I ain't ya baby unless you're my husband, lol. Then I don't mind.:)

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.
maybe see would prefer c*nt!

LMAO Now, I wonder if they'd learn to respect a woman more if we did? I don't think they'd care to be called that. But, then there are dimbulbs out there who would take you calling them that name as a sign of flirting. Some men just dont know when a woman ain't interested.

Lawd, why move north? There's disrespectful men in all the world, just not here. Not a very flattering statement you made about our area, btw. I can tell by your language that you ain't a sweet lil ole thang yourself. Takes one to know one, perhaps? hmmm.....?

There used to be a lot of words accepted in the south, like the n word, that are not anymore. It seriously pisses me off to check out at the minit mart and hear some big buffalo call me hun or baby or sweet thing. Lets be for real I'm none of those things to that person and don't appreciate being called that by someone I don't even know

Well, after moving here from the north, where everyone treats everyone else like crap, and you're lucky if they don't use profanity to refer to you, it is very endearing to hear people say "hun" and "honey" to all genders and ages!

I suppose if some creepy guy is checking out your T&A (and assuming you are not flaunting it), or you're married or whatever,, then you probably wouldn't want to hear anything from such a person- even if he called you ma'am- what you really want is for him not to talk to you- and that's fine- but for the rest of us in polite society, I'll take "Hun" and such terms any day, over "Sir" or "mister" or "Yo!" or "dude!".

Thank goodness there's still a little bit of southern culture left around here!

(My neighbor calls men "honey" and he's not even a fag!)

For some reason I feel uncomfortable calling girls honey, but they call me honey all the time and I love it!
