    It's a term of affection that implies they wouldn't mind being very close to you.

    Well I am glad you are happy; but it probably just means they already forgot your name or they speak that way to all men.

    Southern women come out of the womb batting their eyelashes, swinging their hips, and flirting. It doesn't mean they want you. They are just being friendly.

    I like the term "Honey" too, but of course since I've been using it here there is additional meaning to the word for me. ;)

    Well, I dont know your location, but I'm a girl and here in the U.K if we call you babe its normally because we are attracted to you.

    Girls tend to reserve names like babe and honey only for guys they fancy or there actual boyfriends.... Otherwise it tends to give guys the wrong impression and they hit on you when you don't want them to.

    Hope that helps. :smile:
