Babe, babes, gorgeous, beautiful, sexy, honey, darling…who slides into someone’s DMs using one of these? I know I’m guilty of it. I call guys ‘handsome’ or ‘mr’ on occasion…it’s a very easy habit to slip into…
First impressions count and I’ll admit, if a guy opens with a ‘hey babe’ I immediately think ‘fuckboy’. Not fair to assume, I know, but to me it just comes across as too smooth and a little sleazy.
I personally don’t think there’s anything sexier than using someone’s name to address them. It shows that:
- You are respectful
- You are interested in getting to know them as an individual
- You don’t think they are interchangeable with some other ‘babe’
Pet names are lovely once you know a person and things have progressed to that level, but maybe try saying someone’s name to start and see if it makes a difference…
