My husband and I are having a debate regarding the use of terms of endearment. He uses terms of endearment with his female facebook friends because he wants his female friends to feel at home with him. He wants his female friends to feel that they can talk to him about almost anything. He wants his female friends to feel like they are family. The tems of endearment he uses are... hon darling sweetie and so on I am the opposite. I just do not understand the need for that. What are your thoughts on this?
