Is it weird that my partners aunt (not by blood) calls him babe?

my bf was raised by a lesbian couple, his aunt and his aunts girlfriend. they broke up but both are still part of the family even though both found new lovers. so if she is still part of the family, why would she call her nephew babe? it just seems weird to me. thanks

  • No, not at all. Some people just call names such as babe, sweetie, Hon, etc... as terms of endearment. Not meant to be weird, just how they are. I used to babysit for this couple who always called me babe, or even just kid. LOL!

  • The cashier at Walmart calls me babe.  I call other moms on here babe.  I call my spouse babe.  If you don't see any other signs that she might be a little more into him than what would be considered appropriate, I'd write it off as just being nice.

  • It's just a term of enderarment like m-avi said. Its a very southern thing to do too(not sure if she's southern).

  • Ahhh okay, I see where your coming from then.  I would definitely take offense if someone was calling my hub the name I call him.  Maybe it's silly but that's the way it is.  I don't know any polite way to tell her that your not comfortable with it, lol.

  • Eh, odd choice, but there's no reason to think anything of it.

    On that note, call him something better, like, sexy, then babe won't creep you out so much.
    I don't think its weird, blood or not, she's like family... unless you live in Kentucky, deep woods, I wouldn't worry...
