  • Say something. He won't know it bothers you unless you say something.

  • No, what does it matter. It would only be an awkward conversation.

  • dancinintherain: because it's disrespectful to be called something you don't like. Being respected always matters.

  • Just be like, "Hey! Don't call me that! I like to be called (insert name here)." and leave it at that. Be nice about it though, not ill. He shouldn't take it to heart and it shouldn't hurt his feelings.

  • Wonder how he'd react you you called him kiddo?? Say something if you don't like it. Of course you'll be kind when you say it! Just the fact that you don't want to say anything tells me you'll be kind!
