Sometimes all you have to do is ask a simple question and you will receive a very intricate answer that tells you what you wanted to know plus so much more. That’s the case with women and what they wish guys called them instead of ‘babe’. If we had the budget to hire Steve Harvey and the time to
gather Thought Catalog readers to form two teams to play Family Feud, we’d be in for a treat.
The topic would be:
NAME THE NICKNAME GIRLS WISH GUYS USED INSTEAD OF ‘BABE’
(Spoiler alert: I already did the research so I’ll outline the Top 4 most popular responses the way it would’ve come up on Family Feud.)
1. A CREATIVE/ UNIQUE/ WEIRD/ FUNNY/ PERSONALIZED NICKNAME2. THE GIRL’S NAME (OR ANY FORM OF IT)
3. OTHER TERMS OF ENDEARMENT (DOLL/CUTIE/HONEY/LOVE)
4. ANYTHING OTHER THAN ‘BABE’
Since Steve Harvey isn’t involved and you’re just stuck with me, I also found out what the 18 girls preferred to be called other than ‘babe’, as well as their feelings towards the nickname.
