Just started speaking to someone on tinder. Everything was going well until he called me babes. AIBU to end it here or should I give him a chance?!

That would be a passion killer for me, sorry.

SweetChickadee Thu 15-Sep-16 18:20:57

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Thu 15-Sep-16 18:26:11

I don't mind babe but babes is ewwwwww.

JeanGenie23 Thu 15-Sep-16 18:28:36


Babes yuck!

BennyTheBall Thu 15-Sep-16 18:29:12

Dump. Immediately.

PotofGold1186 Thu 15-Sep-16 18:30:41

Babes would have been acceptable when I was age 31 it puts me off!

billyholiday Thu 15-Sep-16 18:35:05

Yep it puts me off too. It's such a shame because he's so attractive and funny!

Give him a chance-it might just be something he typed without realising how twattish it sounds.

It's an indicator that he doesn't know or speak to many women in real life, otherwise he'd know that sort of shit is undesirable and seen as a bit slimy.

If I called my wife Babes I'd not be typing this as I'd be dead. What a patronising twat he is to dare to use such a term to you without knowing if you liked it or not. Arrange to meet him and break both his legs

At least it wasn't babez.

BillThePony Thu 15-Sep-16 18:46:54

I went out with a guy for a while, until the night he Called me baby bear!

I just couldn't after that

I bet you're being catfished by Kip Dynamite.

Yayme Thu 15-Sep-16 18:47:17

I prefer it to hun.

ShatnersBassoon Thu 15-Sep-16 18:49:19

Love a bit of Kip. I'm a hundred per cent sure that he's my soul mate.

Baby bear? Wow!

Littlebee76 Thu 15-Sep-16 18:56:35

This made me smile.
My DH called me babes after our first date and I told him to NEVER call me that again.. He listened and we are celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary next week.
Don't bin him off just yet smile

I got sweetcheeks about a month into the relationship I'm in. I issued an Official Warning so now he only calls me that when he's trying to make me laugh or has had a few drinks

Babes isn't that bad if all else seems alright..?

seven201 Thu 15-Sep-16 19:03:09

My now husband called me babe once many years ago. I told him never to again actually got to say 'don't call me babe' Pamela Anderson style and he didn't. His family say babe to each other makes me want to vom. I think don't rule him out just yet.

debbs77 Thu 15-Sep-16 20:25:46

Same here, but baby. Bleurgh

It's actually lost all my matches and messages anyway!

wonderingsoul Thu 15-Sep-16 20:38:21

Or you know you could just tell him not to call younthat.

Marylou2 Thu 15-Sep-16 20:39:42

Aw baby bear is sweet.DH calls me baby badger blush. No excuse for babes though.

abbsismyhero Thu 15-Sep-16 20:44:38

I take it as a sign that they don't know my name or that he has so many women on the go its easier just to call them a generic name

Knew a guy that called me and everyone else my darling I said oh I'm YOUR darling am I? He calls me by my name now grin

Destinysdaughter Thu 15-Sep-16 21:15:38

I blocked a guy as he kept calling me that. Can't bear it. And it can also mean he's got a few women on the go and calls them all that because he can't remember their names...
