Is it cool for your wife to be calling other guys baby, Hun, Sweety? I addressed this with her before and she said she would stop..but she still did it! And I'm sure if I were calling other girls Sweety and baby, she would get pissed.
If it something that truly bothers you do you think it is an insecurity on your part? I know some peoples terms of endearment are different than others but if she has always used these "pet names" with other men, then do you really expect her to change it now? I have been known to throw out a babe or baby to close friends, and in no means was it something other than just a word, it had no meaning behind it, no emotions, or feelings attached to it, it is just a word.petty,dont let it ruin ur relation
My wife calls everyone honey or sweetie. I know it is just saying it to be nice. Not a sine of affection. If your girl says it to guys and girls I would not be worried about it at all. And even if it is guys I would look at the context of the conversation. She probably does not even realize she is doing it.
I do not care why she does this, but you have asked her to stop doing it, and she hasn't. Now it's time to tell her it really bothers you, and tell her to please be aware that if she continues to do this, you will consider it intentional disrespect. She may defend herself, so stand your ground and do not let her back you down. NO MATTER WHY it bothers you, it's wrong to continue doing something once someone has been asked to stop.
