Words of Endearment

What is with girls/women addressing each other with words like ‘love’ ‘babe’ ‘sweetie’ or ‘sweetheart’
and its perfectly acceptable

..and boys/guys/men don’t have the same freedom of expression.

It bothers me! Well not really πŸ™‚ but I still found it important enough to be put up on my blog πŸ™‚

The closest I have come to a guy use a word of endearment to me was ‘dear’. I didn’t quite appreciate it. Apparently, it is a very common phrase used in South India, I was told by one of my colleagues when I was working down south in Kerala..

It’s like the one word they know in English very well and use it everywhere and Β to everyone they meet.

Anyone know any other words that guys use to address each other besides swear words?
