Honey, like darling or baby or many other words, can represent fondness or can be patronising, depending on the usage or even the tone of voice. Some feminists don’t like terms of endearment, especially when used by strangers, because of their supposed insincerity.
Sure, it may be a general term of affection, but it can be used as a common ‘nickname’ for anyone, or even in a patronizing manner, suggesting she might dislike you. The latter are especially likely if she’s from the southern United States. Stop looking for meaning in meaningless words and ask her if she likes you.
It is not proper for strangers to refer to others as “sweetie,” “honey” or “hun.” Those terms are to be used by those who are in more intimate relationships, such as boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife, grandparents to grandchildren, or by close friends, such as long-time female bridge players.
It means nothing really, unless additional words and actions are said and or done before, along with or followed up with being called hun. It could just be a girls way of calling people “dude” like a term of endearment.
If a guy wants things to be a little more romantic, he’ll start calling you “honey” as a means to show you how he feels. Usually, when you are in a long term relationship, guys will switch from this pet name to another on the list.
If a guy is calling you “honey”, then he thinks you’re really sweet and probably cute, too. If a guy is trying to make a move because he really likes you, it’s likely that he’ll call you by this pet name. Generally, when someone calls you “sweetie”, then they truly adore you or love you.
It just means that he sees you as someone friendly to him. This is obvious. If a guy is calling you “honey”, then he thinks you’re really sweet and probably cute, too. If a guy is trying to make a move because he really likes you, it’s likely that he’ll call you by this pet name.
