Why do guys call girls 'babe' even if they're just a casual sex partner?

I know this question sounds a bit weird or stupid, since it's just such a natural thing for guys to call any girl they're sleeping with 'babe', but I'm just curious to see whether there's some sort of psychology to it or anything, because technically it's a bit strange how a guy calls a girl babe just cause he's having or wants to have sex with her, even when he has no feelings for her.

Superb Opinion

  • I mean, I do have "feelings" for casual partners.
    Clearly, those are not the feelings of love or romantic interest, but they are feelings of some description - desire, excitement.
    Sometimes those kinda feelings may even be stronger than the ones I would have for someone in a committed relationship.

    I've had casual sexual partners who I've overall enjoyed and desired more than some of my romantic partners.
    I don't mind expressing this, for as long as we both remain on the same page.

  • "Babe" is just a classic term used when the guy wants to call you something, but doesn't want to use (or doesn't remember) your name. It generally doesn't mean anything... it's better than saying "hey you".

    • Thanks for the mho

  • For me its kinda automatic it's kinda like I don't swear except during sex your just your mind gets switched and you become a different person or sexual beast.

  • I hate when people call someone "babe". Doesn't matter if casual or relationship

  • I don't know I've always wondered about the nicknaming thing. I've never been in a relationship so I don't really know but I always wondered how people decided what nickname to use.
