  • i seems when most people are referring to someone on here as 'sweetie' or 'hun', they are being condescending, or bitchy towards them..usually attempting to correct or scold the person they are talking to.
    i find it humorous.

  • Not really. I live in the south so I am called it almost everyday that it doesn't bother me on here, unless it is in a condescending way.

  • Now, little missie, why would it possibly bother your sweet little head to be called "hun?" :)

  • I call people hon sometimes. I'm from KY where its the norm to be called hon. Its not meant to be considered derogatory or said in a negative way. Its actually a sign that I am comfortable with you and care.

  • Does not bother me one bit darlin'. Sweety many of us try to be friendly while we comfort others, hun. It's okay dear.

  • Well it really depends on who is saying it, how they're saying it, & the context or setting we are in.
