What does it mean when a guy calls you baby girl?

By on April 19, 2017

Ladies, let’s face it: there are a lot of adorable nicknames a guy can call you, but one of the most precious and heartwarming names is undoubtedly ‘baby girl’. But if your new guy just blurts it out of nowhere, you may be somewhat confused by the actual meaning. Sure, the meaning of baby girl will be different depending on the guy, but there’s usually just one basic reason for him calling you that- which we’re about to discuss!

The Most Common Reason for Being Called ‘Baby Girl’

When a guy calls a lady ‘baby girl’, nine times out of ten it means that he thinks you are the sweetest, cutest, most amazing girl on the planet. He sees what a wonderful person you are inside and out. He sees you as a lovely lady that will stick by him and encourage him throughout any endeavor he may come across. You are a girl that is truly genuine and he can see that without question. You are just too cute for words and your sweet, gentle spirit automatically makes him want to refer to you with a soft, heartwarming name such as baby girl.

Does This Mean He Likes You?

The best bet would be: yes, he likes you! He sees what a wonderful girl you are, and calling you a cute, adorable, and downright sweet nickname such as this shows that he is sincerely interested in you and who you are. So, yes, being called baby girl is a definite sign he is interested and truly likes you.

Are There Exceptions to the Rule?

Just like everything else in life, there are exceptions to the rule. It is true that not every guy on the planet that calls you baby girl is genuinely interested in you and liking you for who you are.

Unfortunately, another somewhat common reason a guy may call a girl ‘baby girl’ is because he wants to soften her up a bit and get her more comfortable, for more ‘sexually oriented’ relations or otherwise.

A guy could also simply call you baby girl because he wants to be super nice and make you feel special, even though there may be no real reason behind it. This could be his ‘go-to’ nickname, so as you a female are talking to him, he just automatically calls you it.

But don’t get your hopes down- baby girl is usually a name reserved for a special, sweet girl that a guy really likes.

      Your boyfriend’s behavior is an indication of his desire to nourish your relationship. His words are likely signs that he is attracted to you. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. If you feel that it would be appropriate to give him a nickname as well, then do so. Have a great day, S!

    Okay My boyfriend has been calling me baby girl for a while now and we just got into our first argument out of our 2 years of dating and he hasn’t been answering me since yesterday should I try to talk to him about or wait until he talks to me ( I don’t want to be clingy or pushy girlfriend).

      The two of you had an argument and he is now not speaking to you. This may be a sign that he is unable to maintain a mature relationship with you. Determine what you want for your future. Decide what you believe is appropriate for your relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. If he ignores you or treats you poorly, then you are aware of his feelings. Have a great day, Daranae!

      His behavior is an indication that he is attracted to you. However, he is currently in a relationship. You should focus your emotional energy elsewhere. If his relationship ends and he reaches out to you, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. For now, simply continue to share your kindness and compassion with him. Have a great day, Kaylee!

      You are aware of the social and emotional connotations of the term, baby girl. You like feelings secure in your relationship. You are also aware that your partner is highly attracted to you. Ensure that you nourish your relationship by spending additional time with your partner in person. Have a great day, Kayla!

      His statement was likely a reflection of his emotional feelings toward you. He is likely attracted to you. He may have used that nickname to inform you of his feelings without being direct. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Continue to share your kindness and compassion with him. Have a great day, Brie!

    I am 45 years old woman and I am in a recandle relationship about 11 weeks ago. My man called me at one point “baby girl” and asked me if that made me feel uncomfortable because of my age, I am a woman and not longer a baby. I told him I loved how he chose to call me. We joked and told me to call him “baby boy”, he said that was better to call him “baby man”, makes no sense but love most of the time makes no sense, you just feel it. So as adults I am feeling like teenager, I adore him and we agreed on what names we are comfortable with and love to make him happy. I also have more than 10 different lovely names I call him and asked him, again, if he was ok with that. He said “as long as you never forget my real name”… ❤️

    What if you don’t like being called baby girl? Especially if it then goes to him wanting to get freaky? It kinda makes me cringe when someone calls me that and tries to be all soft with me, then wants it to lead to sex. I adore my boyfriend but I am not a baby girl, I am a woman. How do I tell him that without sounding like a righteous bi#$h? Lol

      Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. He should respect your desire not to be called by a certain name. If he does not respect your wishes, then determine what you want with this relationship. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. The nickname is commonly used to signify attraction. Have a great day, Lauren!

It is clear that you are thinking about sharing your thoughts and feelings with this person, so do so. Give her an opportunity to share herself with you as well.

      With my guy, he just did it out of the blue, I mean, I wouldn’t tell him to call you that, it might get awkward, but good lucky anyways! Also it depends on your age probably, I’m only 16 so I mean I may be wrong.
