Many men or boys call close female friends sweetheart, cutie, girly, darling, etc. I always feel awkward when I am addressed this way, because I never know what to say back. What do boys like to be called? I assume they don't like to be called "cute." What do I say?

I think nicknames that are specific to the person are the best. It's like a little inside joke for the two of you. Do you think babe is a common name for guys? I'm hesitant to use it.
Hmm. You have an interesting point. I will have to find out the names that I should not call someone. However, if I'm close enough to call someone a name, I would imagine they could tell me if I make them uncomfortable.
Exactly! Communication is so important, and I would hope that he would be able to tell me if it bothered him also.
