What does the word "boo" mean to you?

I was in the car with my boyfriend and his cousins soon to be ex wife called him. First of all he missed the call and called her right back. That's not the problem. He said Hey boo how r u? Then she asked 'what he was doing'. I didn't feel comfortable with that at all. His excuse was 'I called her that because of what she was going through with my cousin'. I didn't buy it even though he said that boo crap didn't mean anything to him. However it meant something to me. Am I over reacting or what?

  • I've heard it used as a term of endearment. I personally don't use it, nor does my husband.

    but overall, yea, I'd probably be pissed about that one.

  • isn't it just a term of endearment..why i don't know..but not really sure what the problem is, unless you know stuff about him that would be relevent to this story. either way, why does it matter? 'boo' used to mean BOO!..guess it still could, depending on the person. lol

  • I always thought it was something that ghosts say when they want to scare you at halloween. LOL

    But seriously, I thought it was similar to a term of endearment or another word for boyfriend or girlfriend. So, if he said "Hey, Boo how are you?" , then he was either trying to scare her or using a term of endearment.

  • Yes that's what I thought as well aliishot. do you all think I am over reacting about this. If it makes a difference I'm 37 and he's 39.

  • lol I knew you gals would say something about "boo" meaning scary. But I am refering to the 'boo' meaning significant other.
