I don't know why, but I've never really liked "affectionate" terms being used in everyday language.
Like the new Debate coach JGraves. He has this knack for saying "honey" "love" and other terms that just in general bother me. I don't know why. It just wears out these words.
I don't know....
I mean, it doesn't bother me if the speaker is sincere, but most of the time it's said so casually by people I barely know that it's just WEIRD.
But that's just me.
