Sweetheart doesn't really bother me but all pet names usually make me cringe little when they come from men I don't know or just met. Definitely co-signing the familiarity argument. If your tone is respectful I'll chalk it to the game and let it slide unless you call me baby. Thats for a select few to use. The only pet name that will get you mollywhopped is the term Red…a pet name for a Delta. I HATE that. *scrunches up face in disgust* Reply LEAVE YOUR COMMENT Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
