  • have you talk to him? Maybe he thinks is ok and just want to be more friendly. But for me Honey should just be his partner.

  • Well I would be mad too.. I don't know your SO's personality so I doubt how I would handle it would work with him.. If my guy did that.. I would seriously flip out on him.. he would get the point..

  • I call my BF honey and he calls me Honey. If I caught him referring to another female as honey I'd be kicking some butt! I'd be talking to your husband explain this is unacceptable for you. It's just not going to work and if he has any kind of respect for you he'd STOP!

  • Do not put so much emphasis on a word of endearment, maybe it is his way of being friendly and has no other connotation. Sometimes men are just like kids, if they realize something irritates you thy will do it over and over just to do just that irritate you. Ignore him when he does this, actions are a lot worse than words.

  • Honestly, the only woman he should want to be nicer to him is you.
    A happy wife makes a happy home.

  • He has a point maybe that is true. but if it bothers you then he needs to resoect your feeling and stop or just do it when you go out to or why don't you start calling another man honey and see what he say's about that. Then maybe he will see that ow I am hurtting her when I do this and he will stop it or you will find that the men treat you better when you call then I think that will get his attention . And tell him that hey your right that calling men that they treat you better to and thank him for bring that to your attention.
    mmmmmmmm ........

  • why would they be nicer to him and in what way? either girls are just nice or there not. why should he care. my father did this to girls he would meet anywhere and i didn't like him doing that to my mother. i think it embarrasses the girls as well and see him as a pig. thats what i got from the girls when my dad called them honey. so maybe this could work to your advantage. maybe you should tell him that you think the girls think he is a pig or a dog. i would be totally turned off by a married man calling me that. yuk

  • I'm all for giving him a dose of his own medicine. Call other men honey in front of him. Or sweetie, or something else. Something that would irritate the hell out of him. See how long it takes him to blow a gasket. Men would LOVE it, girls would 'maybe'. Probably not so much though. But men, most definatly! So, it wouldn't take long for him to blow his little gasket! Could be some real fun for you.

    On the flip side, I do see his point. SOME girls would be nicer to him, maybe give him an extra burger or something. An extra discount. Which I would appreciate. But just 'be nicer'? Uh, no. If we aren't getting something monetary out of it, no. It's gotta stop.
