Straight Dudes who call guys «Baby»

Has anyone noticed how many more straight or non-gay dudes today are calling other guys «baby?» I have noticed that these guys saying this tend to be disproportionately urban, African American, and Latin. A lot of «hip hop» type White guys are doing the same. Today, in my gym, one of the African American male personal trainers saw me an said «wassup up, baby.» Other guys at the gym have said the same to me a lot lately, especially black guys. I have also heard them say it as a greeting to other guys or in passing conversation to other dudes such as, «That’s wassup, baby!» I would never admit it in person, but it turns me on when a hot straight guy calls me «baby.»

I’m old so I can get away with calling straight youngsters «baby» or «shorty».

You can’t use «sweetie» or anything involving the concept of «sweet» because it implies they are effeminate and they think that’s a bad thing.

Yes, men calling other men baby goes back to the 70s in a widespread way, mainly among Black men. It was part of street macho suave talk that many Black guys did in the 70s. Currently, hip hop and urban culture have made it even more prevalent as a way for men to express swagger, endearment, and affection toward other dudes. However, in this way, only Alpha Males can use it confidently, and as such, there are times when its usage can seem like the Alpha Male is trying to insinuate that another guy is the Beta Male or is more diminutive than he is. Also, there is a perception that some guys are so suave and have so much swag that they even pour on the charm with other males by calling them baby or other similar maneuvers. These guys are securely viewed as masculine, so they don’t have people questioning their manhood when they do it. Perhaps, because of the pervasiveness of hip hop among youth, I have noticed more White and Hispanic men doing the same lately. Urban culture is very interesting.

Curiously, I’m watching a rerun of «Hill Street Blues,» circa 1983, while perusing the DL.

Taurean Blaque’s character, black detective Neal Washington, just now called Kiel Martin’s character, white detective J. D. LaRue, «Baby.»

So this was going on at least 32 years ago, dolls.

Babe and baby as used to describe a romantic partner (rather than a small child or immature person; those usages began in the 1400s and 1500s) can be traced to usage that began in the 19th and 20th centuries in America. Initially, the words were simply used as a form of address (men were calling each other baby in 1835, sans any romantic connotations; in the 1996 movie Swingers, Vince Vaughn’s character employs the word for just about everybody).

Young Thug Speaks On Gay Rumors & Why He Calls His Male Friends ‘Bae’

Young Thug has been running the music industry with his features. If you haven’t heard about his music, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard about Young Thug calling his male friends «Bae» and «Lover». While the world was now questioning his sexuality, he set the record straight with Bossip. During his interview, his nonchalantly stated he was not gay and it’s just a «Language.»

R150 «White» is no where in the equation.

That is strictly an urban black and latin thing. White men who «try» to speak like that are desperately trying to be something they’re not.

As far as hip-hop goes. That too comes from urban Afro-Latin culture. Again, there’s no european ethnicity in the mix at all.

What does it mean when a guy calls you mom?

I know this sounds really fucking weird but a lot of guys at my school do this. One guy I started talking to randomly labelled me mom, and I know a lot of other guys at my school do this to some of their girl-friends as well. Is it supposed to be sarcastic, telling me that I nag them like a mother? Or is it just something guys do to weird a girl out or some weird way to make a girl feel closer to you? like a term of endearment? ? have you guys ever done this to a girl?


ok, to clarify: he doesn’t say things like «gee, thanks mom.» i will walk into a room and he’ll be like «hey mom!» like out of the blue. and he didn’t start calling me that because i told him to do something. he literally just started calling me that. i was sitting in a class with him and he just starting calling me mom. i wasn’t even talking to him at the time.

Most Helpful Guys

  • when a guy calls you MOM its almost the ultimate compliment <3

    when a guy calls you mom more times than not he likes you or views you as a girl that is cool as heck to hangout with

    you’re the person they will come to with their problems or just to small talk in general

    hope that makes sense

  • There is a term in the relationship world called mothering and men don’t like to be mothered. Mothering refers to the act of correcting people, making sure they’re taking care of themselves, etc. If you have this type of tendency, even if you do it for sincere and unselfish reasons, you will have the label of mom or mother applied to you.

What Guys Said 17

  • Actually no,

    It started with guys calling each other «dad».
    Just super casually for no real reason.

    And then it spread into calling girls «mom».

    And now girls are calling their favorite female celebrities «mom» on Twitter.

    It doesn’t mean too much. I would hold it akin to «dude».
    Or at the most, the ironic tone of «Senpai».

    Just google it.

  • It means you act like a mom. They do it as an insult. Whenever you get called mom, guy’s are insinuating that you’re treating them like their mom does. For example, you may say «hey, pick that up,» and they’ll respond «ok, mom.» So, yes, it’s like you’re nagging them like a mother.

    Not a term of endearment.

  • I say that sometimes it’s a way that somebody signifies that you’re important to them.
    My friend Pablo calls a few good friends of his mom and he loves them. So I guess it just depends on the person but from what I’ve seen it normally means that they consider you a good friend. Or they just call you mom to show that you’re acting like a mother instead of a peer.

  • I would playfully call a girl mom like in role play but it doesn’t mean she was bossing me
    i wanted to be bossed by her or want her to act like she was my mom on my part it was
    a careless role playing act that never means to hurt the feelings of any girl cause i don’t
    do that stuff.. Now my dad would call my late mother «mom» but than he his friend would
    call him «Dad» But in your case sounds like the guy thinks your acting like his mom

  • I’ve done that before. Like for instance a girl I talk with online she asked me sometimes if I ate enough and stuff like that she was worried about me so I called her mom just cause she was acting like one.

  • Cuz you act like their mommy. «Should» people much? «You should do this» or «You should do that»? Consider just not doing that anymore. Not only is it not your job to try to fix people, but you can’t do it anyway.

  • Gee, thanks mom. Like that? They are making fun of you but not in a bad way. More like teasing you. Sometimes guys say things like that and often times it offends the girl but they didn’t really mean to offend them. I wouldn’t take it too seriously or personally. I know one guy who makes fun of everyone, but he doesn’t hate them or anything. It’s just his humor.

  • It’s a mannerism that men use and it could be harmless, as he’s just being cordial, or he thinks you’re hot. If you want to know if he likes you, just go for it!! Life is too short.

  • Might not be a bad thing, if it sounds more like an endearment. Could be that you come across as mature in a way they like.

  • U should act simple with them when they call u mom they reply with sweetly in that manner which they think u don’t care anything they will be the answers of your response to them

  • My parents have been married over 25 years and my father calls his wife mom. And has been for a long time, maybe the young guys these days hear their fathers saying it and just repeats it.

  • A long time ago, I would occasionally accidentally call girls «mom». It was extremely embarrassing, but I just pretended that I was making fun of them.

  • I wouldn’t associate a girl I like with my mum, that just makes it weird. If I call a girl mum it means she’s been friend-zoned.

  • It means you’re a pushy nag. It’s definitely not a term of endearment.

  • Probably because you have big boobs and he wants to suck on them or you could be older than them

  • He either has an Oedipus complex or he thinks you baby him

  • Anonymous

    It means he doesn’t want you to tell him what to do and how to live his life

If A Guy Doesn’t Call… Does That Mean He’s Not Into You?

So he stopped calling, never called in the first place or pretty much has had on and off, weird calling patterns for the entire time you’ve known him.

You’re trying not to over-analyze what it means or doesn’t mean that he isn’t calling you but there is this nagging voice inside your head harassing you to find out the truth.

You might even bring this issue up to your female friends, asking their advice and trying to get some clarity into why this is so confusing and how to get to the bottom of it once and for all.

First off all, let me just say… take a deep breathe and count to ten for a second. I promise you, everything is going to be ok.

I am not saying this to be rude or make an assumption; I just know how truly overwhelming it can be when you are in this kind of a position, wanting someone to do something that means something to you only to be left hanging, kind of in this limbo of trying to get an understanding of what is going on and where to go from here.

Take The Quiz: Is He Losing Interest?

Click here to take our quick (and shockingly accurate) “Is He Losing Interest” Quiz right now and find out if he’s really losing interest in you…

The key question here is, what stage of the relationship are you in?

If You’re In The Beginning Stages Of A Relationship

If this is the beginning stages where things are flirty, fun and not defined at all… maybe you just met, went on a great first date (or so you thought) and then of course since then even though he said he would call he has not once.

Or maybe you have been sort of seeing each other for a bit but never made things official and all of a sudden he has stopped calling you completely and even worse, might even be ignoring your calls!

You might be sitting there trying to figure out what on earth is going on, what does his lack of calling mean?

It depends. First of all, if he has not called and you just met or you are not that close yet, this could mean that he either forget, wants to play hard to get, is sort of interested but not interested enough to make the effort or is simply not interested and assumes you will get the hint.

But if you have gone out of your way to call him… possibly even multiple times… and he has not even called you back and it has been a while since you made the call (since he could not be calling back because he is busy not necessarily ignoring you on purpose).

more: What Do A Guy’s Excuses Really Mean?

But if he has not called you back and a lot of time has gone by, the likely scenario is that he is simply not interested in anything with you, at least in a romantic sense. This is a hard but necessary truth to accept and to really understand. There is no use in holding onto false hope when things are not going to magically change.

You cannot force him to want to call you and even if you could, why would you want to? You should leave yourself open for someone who naturally is inclined to call you and who makes you feel special for who you are, without you having to try so hard and walk on eggshells always feeling as if you are doing something wrong yet not being able to figure out what exactly it is that he wants.

Now on the other hand, if you think you hit it off and he said he would call but never did and you have not called him… you can either leave it and not call, wait and see if he does and in the meantime stop obsessing over it (because obsessing will only drive you crazy, make matters worse and end up creating needy behavior, which is an instant turnoff and something you definitely do not want to have happen) or you can call him up yourself. Now if you decide to call yourself here is a rule of thumb: call expecting nothing.

Even if he does not answer and you never speak to him again, be ok with this. Even if he answers and is rude, cuts the conversation short and seems indifferent to you.

It means nothing about you as a person. You must go into this fully accepting that an outcome you don’t like could easily happen. If you are ok with this and have accepted it, then you might as well make the call if that is what you want and just see how things are.

more: The Exact Reasons Men Lose Interest And How To Fix It

You never know… when you call he actually might feel dumb for forgetting to call you and the conversation will effortlessly pick up where it left off and he will be enthusiastic and glad that you are easy to talk to and not calling him to yell about why he did not call.

You can go with the natural flow of the conversation and just see where it takes you; if you approach it like this, you make it more likely that he will want to be around you more (and see you again) because you are going to be pleasant and refreshing rather than suffocating and demanding. So you really do not know the outcome unless you call.

In general, if you just met or are in the beginning stages and he is not calling it is normally not the best of signs but is definitely not the worst, unless you have already called him with zero response and total radio silence. If this is the case, move on and focus on men who like you for who and how you are.

If You’re Already In An Established Relationship

Now, another situation where a man’s calling habits come into focus are in relationships. So in a relationship, it is possible that he is simply comfortable with you now and feels no need to call.

What will determine whether his lack of calling is neutral (not good or bad), bad sign or simply a sign that means he is comfortable with what you have and feels no need to call.

more: Tips That Mean He’s Not That Into You

Let’s delve into how often he calls (and whether he blatantly ignores your calls for long periods of time and might not even call you back.) If he is not even calling you back, this could be a problem indicating that he is losing interest in you and not in the mood to tell you how he feels because he does not want to deal with hurting you and is probably conflicted, too, about whether he actually wants to end it or is just going through a weird rut, so he leaves you in this weird limbo.

This situation is hard to deal with, I understand… the best thing you can do is have a real heart to heart with him. Not an accusation-fest, where you go off on him and vent all your frustration about why he hasn’t been calling you, how it means the relationship (or whatever you have) is doomed and how horrible he is for doing this to you, blind sighting you in such a cruel way without even having the guts to tell you the truth).

I could go on and on describing the variety of things women have expressed to me when talking about their relationships and how they deal with a man who stops calling (or in other cases texting, but I have covered texting in so many articles I’m not going to go into that here).

more: Texting Signs That Mean He Doesn’t Like You

The point is… when you have a conversation with him, do not come from a place of blaming but rather one of understanding. Come from a place of listening, without any judgment or expectations of what he should or should not say to you. Do not go in assuming he is not interested anymore.


Assumptions are powerful and self-fulfilling prophecies are scarily real. What I mean is if you assume the worst, you can actually make that specific bad outcome you fear more likely to happen, whereas if you assume the best, you give yourself the best shot of things working out in your favor.

So as I was saying… come to the conversation from the kind of mental state I described and you will be able to truly get some kind of understanding into what is going on with him, what he feels about what you have and where to go from there. This will at least give you clarity.

If he stopped calling because he isn’t interested anymore, at least you will know and not have to sit wondering and waiting. Nothing is worse than wandering, waiting, hoping and wishing.

Nothing is worse than trying to grasp at straws for an answer, for a glimmer of hope that the next phone call is from him only to find it is a random telemarketer trying to sell you some imaginary medical device.

I am rambling but it is to make a point that once you know the truth, you can find true peace and ok-ness. When you find this state of being ok, you will not be focusing on whether a man is or is not calling. You will be able to live your life without living and dying inside each time you hear your ringer go off.

If A Guy Doesn’t Call Does That Mean He’s Not Into You?

The goal here should not be to make him call you and convince him to call you… if he is not naturally inclined to make the call, why would you want him to force himself to do something he does not even want to do? If he wants to, great. If he doesn’t, well, it can mean one of two things: 1) he is comfortable in the situation and simply does not feel the need to call as much or at all anymore 2) he has lost interest and can’t figure out the right time and way to tell you.

If you call him and he does not even answer your calls and never returns them, this is a huge indication that he is definitely not into you.

I hope this article helped you understand what it means when a guy doesn’t call, and whether that means he’s not into you or not. It’s a question I get asked a lot, and it’s really important because a lot of the time that a woman thinks a guy isn’t into her, he really is… but she’s unconsciously doing things that make him lose interest and make him pull away. If you’re worried he’s losing interest then chances are he is, and you should read this right now before it’s too late: If He’s Pulling Away, Do This…

MANSWERS: A guy I like keeps calling me ‘dude’. Does that mean he’s just not that into me?

There’s a guy I like. We’ve had a lot of conversation / flirting but he keeps calling me ‘dude’. Does that mean he’s not interested in me romantically? Or am I just paranoid? Michaela

Doesn’t sit right with me, Michaela – I loathe being called ‘dude’ or  ‘man’. Also, I’ll never forget when a guy I was dating yelled ‘Oi!’ to get my attention on a busy street once. He was so dumped. Let’s see what the Manswers team think about this one.
Love, reality chick

Manswers Man Bernard says … “Guys have lots of ways of letting you know they’re interested. If you catch him taking a sneaky stare at you, that’s one. Fumbling his words, that’s another. This calling you ‘dude’ thing, though – it’s something I have reservations about. The classic ‘dude’ from cinema is, as we all know, a Coen Brothers creation you’ll find in The Big Lebowski. He’s a pot-smoking hippy with a penchant for White Russians and no one really takes him that seriously. So calling a girl ‘dude’ may seem, on the outside, like a term of endearment, but I reckon it’s a signal that he considers you one of the boys or just a cool mate to go on the piss with. Bottom line girls: if someone’s calling you dude, they’re just not that into you.”

Manswers Man Dr Phil says… “Whether we like it or not, ‘dude’ or ‘man’ is pretty much accepted vernacular when speaking to anyone these days – even regardless of sex. It’s just one if those freakin’ Americanisms. I personally call people ‘man’ all the time – sometimes including girls who are friends, which I try and avoid, and even my wife, much to her chagrin! (And my mum – who hates it!). On one hand the ‘dude’ endearment may be an indicator that he does not regard you romantically, but on the other, it depends on him. Is he an ex-hippie? Is he prone to calling EVERYONE dude? If that’s the case, you may be in there! Good luck dude! ;)”

Manswers Man Mr E says… “Dude, what are you thinking?!? Clearly this chick is into you… Oh wait, HE is the dude and you’re the babe. Sorry, Michaela. Mmmmm, it’s a tricky one. Does your prospect enjoy the works of Owen Wilson or Jim Carey a little too much perhaps? Or maybe the occasional doobie? If not, then I think there may be only friendship in the future for you guys.”
