I also hate it – it sort of shows that the person saying it to me is either trying to be condescending or has no respect for me. Irks the crap out of me. Sweetie does the same thing…

I hate being called “Hun” “Sweetie” “Darling” anything else along those lines. I hate it even more when someone who is younger than me calls me one of those cutesy names.

I’ve never really thought about it too much, but it kind of bugs me when girls who are younger than me say it to me.

Down south however everyone says “Hun” or “Sug” (short version of sugar) and it’s never meant to be offensive. So because of that I suppose it doesn’t really bother me.

Must be a more normal thing in the South? Because it doesn’t bother me from strangers at all.

It DOES irritate the crap out of me if someone uses it in an argument as a condescending term…

I hate it as well.

When men say it to me I want to punch them.  It makes me feel like they’re being condecending.  Would they call people they consider their equals “hun” or “sweetheart”?  Puke!

I love it when I’m traveling (which is a lot) and find a place where the watiresses call you “hun”  I know its going to be some good eats.

It doesn’t bother me. I call the Darling Husband that and he calls me that.  As for strangers, they are usually cute old women, so I don’t mind.  I would be annoyed if they were being condescending about it.

@UpstateCait:

I totally have a double standard on this issue. I HATE HATE HATE it when male strangers call me hon, dear, sweetie, etc (I don’t mind it from close friends).  But from women, especially older women, I find it endearing.
