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.

    So there’s this guy I really like… he’s always there for me and we’ve done things before, but the issue is.. his last relationship hurt him a lot so he’s scared to start another but lately he’s been kissing me a lot more and calling me Babygirl or princess and I don’t know what it means..
    Does it mean he’s moved on from his heartbreak and wants to date me? I’m just so confused he’s honestly so sweet and caring and cute and kind and funny and just.. I like him so much <3
    Does he like me back?
    Please help I’m lost :c

      His behaviors are indications that he feels a strong connection with you. It is certainly possible that he is interested in nourishing this relationship. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Lexie!

      I think he definitely likes you, but is just kinda confused due to his past relationship. If i put myself in his shoes (obviously IDK the whole situation), but what I can say is that, i think he must rly like u but want things to go slow so he can process his last relationship and move on in a healthy way, but… he also likes u a lot and can’t help himself ! haha

            He asked you if you liked him, and you responded by saying, “I don’t know.” He then responded in the same way, likely because your statement made him feel uncertain about his feelings toward you. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. This will help draw positive people and energy toward you. Have a great day, Abby!
