I hate, hate hate hate being called baby or babe or honey. to me they seem so dismissive and impersonal. It seems when a girl calls me babe or honey, she isn't really listening, and quite honestly, isn't even aware I exist as anybody unique. I like pet names though... unique pet names, allthough I do not feel they are an important part of a relationship, and by that, I mean, I don't think they are necessary to express love. Anybody else have this pet peeve?
