    He called me "Babe"

    He called me “babe”

    So have been out with this guy three times, and texting a lot in between. A fourth time we had a sleepover of sorts. No sex, since I don’t engage in that until I feel like I am secure and in a relationship, so we just fell asleep next to each other. He isn’t pushy, nor tries to initiate anything besides some kissing with me.

    I told him I am not just going to be some cuddle buddy, and he immediately said, “That’s definitely not all that I want you to be.”

    He’s nice, respectful, funny, not my typical type of guy, but we have a great time together.

    I know I am overthinking things. This morning I texted “Hope you have a good day.”

    He responded “Thanks babe”

    No one has ever called me that before. I didn’t think it warranted a response, so I didn’t respond. But I don’t know what to think of it at all. Now I am second guessing if I should have responded, because maybe he threw it out to gauge my interest, though I think I’ve been plenty interested. I’m 25, he’s 24

    Personally, I think he’s definitely into you! He also thinks that you’re into him….you definitely did not have to respond to that text, because that would have seemed desperate since you were the one that texted “hope you have a good day.” Take it as a compliment that he called you babe!

    Babe is usually reserved for someone you like, so there is no doubt he is into you

    Definitely validated what I thought. He also calls me “darling”. Last night he asked if I preferred one of the names. I like him too. He was not someone I would have ever considered, but ts comfortable and going slow, which is what I need after my past with terrible men. He likes to drink some, and I am less of a drinker, but enjoy it too. I will sometimes tease him about being at the bar etc… He will always say “That’s okay right? Its going to work?” He is asking me if I am okay with his drinking habits. Its so nice he even asks.

    We text everyday. But now I feel like we don’t have anything to text about. I haven’t been doing anything that interesting, but working lately. We used to have witty banter and flirtation back and forth, but now its dull. “How is your day?” is our new norm daily, multiple times. We will sometimes send kissy faces, and last night he was saying he wished I was there with him. I’m nervous too, because I like him which is making me nervous about what I say.

    And then there is the issue that we have only been on three dates, and one innocent sleepover in a two week period. Are we moving too fast. Getting too serious. “Darling” and ‘babe” after two weeks and four dates. Is it too much, too soon?

    I am afraid of someone just trying to rush and get into my pants. Its scary. He does not remind me he is trying or will do that, but you never know. I mean when we are together, he innocently rubs my knee. We don’t kiss very much, just a little. And even when he slept in bed with me, it was so innocent and he barely touched me. I’ve had guys try way more with me in that situation, and he didn’t. He told me he’s a good respectful guy.

    I completely understand where you’re coming from and I’ve been in these situations before but in my case, the guy did not have good intentions like your man does. In my past experience it has usually been from sleezy guys who just like to flirt with every girl, calling her nice names to reel her in. In your case I do feel he is being genuine but at the same time you should take things slow and continue with caution just incase he doesn’t turn out to be who/what he says he is.
