Kick her in the balls.

I don't find it condescending when someone does it to me. But I'm pretty easy going about a lot of random term of endearment
^sup yo.

When coming from someone who I am friends with and it's clear that their tone is meant to be endearing or playful I am not really bothered.

When it's from a stranger, even if it's a woman, it does bother me but to various extents depending on the situation.

The old southern woman at the gas station going through Arkansas calling me 'sweet heart' bothered me, but didn't make me offended or particularly angry. Just rubbed me the wrong way.

The middle-aged man old enough to be my father who was staring at me like a piece of meat calling me 'honey' while getting way too close in my face offended me and upset me.

And for the record both situations I've been in and where not just made up to talk about how creepy guys are.

At the gas station I forgot my wallet and told the owner of the little gas station I'd leave my drink on the counter while I went out to the car. She told me it was fine to take it to the car while I got my wallet and don't worry 'sweet heart'.

The man was the owner of a shitty run down Waffle House my mom and I where eating at while traveling around the south. He was trying to get me to sign an application for work there and was staring at me with this intense lecherous stare. My mother made us hurry up, threw out the application he gave me, and never brought me back there.

She's a spoiled brat alright. Is that Girlfriends house and she's just letting Sister stay? If so Girlfriend better put down some solid rules about how her house is run.

Bitches be disrespecting the rules >:I

I think they need to calm the hell down.

Nothing is offensive unless you want it to be, and I'm sure you wouldn't say such innocent things like "honey" if you wanted to be rude.

Generally if someone takes offense to something I said that I didn't want to be offensive I stop talking to them, forever. Then again talking to me for a prolonged period of time and not being offended is pretty much impossible.

Don't listen to him Otaku.

Arc is the patron Saint of being offended that other people are offended by things.

I wouldn't say that you should stop using pet names, but just keep in mind that some people may feel strange if someone they don't know is addressing them affectionately.

At work, and off in two and a half hours... weee. I have sewing to do and I have to get as much of it done as I can before tomorrow evening, since Mom and her bf are having a new years party. Which means "get your multitudes of fabric, scraps, paper, pins, thread and the machine off the dining table".

Gf's sister lives there, she's in law school right now so their mom is paying her half of the rent and groceries and electric and Internet. But she's always been spoiled.

I have the best Girlfriend Ever. She shoveled my driveway for me.

Depends on the context. I've learned it's a bit of a regional thing in places where it's more common to hear it from random strangers with good intentions. Tone can be easily misinterpreted on the internet (especially in certain cynical corners of the internet), so it may be better to avoid terms of endearment altogether unless that person knows you.

The only one who will hear those terms from me, generally speaking, is my doggie. That is, when I'm not calling her "fuzzbutt" or "fluffmuffin."

I am glad I don't have to shovel snow. Apartment perk woot woot.

At least when my parents pay for my shit I am super grateful bro...

Jiji spazzed out and bit my hand (no blood) so now I am giving him the Ice Queen effect. Yeah, no snuggles from me tonight >:I

This is my last winter having to put up with this. Next year I will be living with Meghan and her landlord gets the driveway plowed.

I had Chinese for dinner!
