Is it a bad sign that my lover addressed me by my first name?

Asked by honeybun35 (230points) 4 days ago

Earlier I texted my friend good morning. He replied back good morning and my first name. Normally he just uses my nickname but today he didn’t. I am not sure if that is a bad sign or not. I’m guessing he is mad at me.

For God’s sake honeybun, get a hobby, take up crime, politics, cooking, ANYTHING to distract you from your obsession with this man. You behave like some lovesick 12 year old. Cut it out. It’s creepy!

I think that is infinitely better than calling you by someone else’s first name.

No, that’s not a bad sign. A bad sign would be him using you for casual sex for long periods of time without interest in commitment when you have feelings. THAT would be a bad sign.

Yes – it’s a terrible sign.

I agree with @janbb . I think I’d tell him that if he can’t call me by my nickname to not bother to answer at all. Oh yes, a FWB is not a lover, he’s a man who uses you for sex!

I agree with @janbb, and you should text him back that because he is so mean and rude to you, there will be no sex for an entire week.

I think fwb is the term friends so he is a friend considering 20 yrs. He don’t use for anything we both do same thing. How do you know what we do outside of the bed.

You seem determined to keep asking us about him and we truly don’t know.

I think he’s not interested in you any longer.

It’s a bad sign. He doesn’t like you no more.

2 questions for you, @honeybun35:

1. How old are you?
2. Did you tell this man yet that you love him?

No, it means he loves you and wants to marry you.

Lovely that he remembers your first name.
He is starting to feel like the nickname thing is stupid and he wants to stop.
He also wants you to stop the baby talk.

The next time you text him you could address it to someone called Brian as if it were sent by mistake.

@honeybun35 Is it a bad sign that my lover addressed me by my first name?

Given that this question is in the General Section I’m alarmed and surprised that several responses weren’t moderated and the miscreants severely reprimanded.

Let’s assume that your real name is Lisa and your sobriquet Is Cookie, for the sake of this example.

“Good morning Lisa” does sound unusual when you are used to him saying “Good morning Cookie” or the somewhat peremptory “Good morning”.

It may mean something, it may mean nothing, better to ask him.

Thank you for all the thrills and spills which you bring here for our daily determination, it’s testament to your inquiring mind and cognitive awareness.
