to think that "love" is just as bad as "hun"?

(88 Posts)

I see posters on here calling each other love all the time now and I really cant stand it.

Why? Surely its just as bad as hun?

You get called 'meduck' all the time around these parts. I like it.

I'm just down the road from you usual, and I like it too. And it isn't only the younger generation either. smile

'Alright meduck' is our favourite way of greeting someone.

'love' is's old-fashioned and cosy and nice.

'hun' is horrible and modern and meaningless.

I quite like 'hen' as well

A love lover here smile I'm from the north, live down south and miss hearing it in common usage.

I like that it is gender neutral - it is used by anyone to anyone. I like that it is has a long history.

I think some people are confusing love (just lovely) and luv (used patronisingly by builders etc.)

Hun is awful and just makes me think of Attila rather than something sweet that I have on toast.

Well then I'm awful, low life, common... what ever because I just love and use them all;
Chicken pie
Baby cakes
Bring them on, it saves trying to remember everyone's names. I am rubbish at that!

Neither are bad! It's people being nice. Get a grip and stop being a grump!

My friends and I sometimes use it and some of us also use darling which has been trashed on here too. I think things like this only sound 'wrong' if you don't use them in your circle of friends and anything you do use sounds normal

Having an opinion does not make me a grump. You can have your grip back smile
