What does it mean when a guy calls you Hun?

What does a man mean when he calls you hun? There are so many possibilities.

To understand the man (or ask him), need to know his meaning when he uses a pet name like hun.

These 15 common phrases are what a man might call “hun”

1. He is attracted to you

A guy attracted to your pet names is likely to choose one or two of them to share with you. When they “woo” you, a man who is attracted to you will use the name, Hun.

However, male friends are more likely to share nicknames such as “hun” (with no sexual meaning).

2. He feels comfortable with you

Men are more likely to call female friends hun than men are to call them hun. However, if they are comfortable calling you hun, it is the same as when they call their male friends bro.

Sorry ladies, sometimes it just means he is comfortable with you (not because he wants to live happily ever after, drink coconut milk, and live happily every day on a beautiful desert island in passionate love until the end).

3. He wants to be more than just friends

Sometimes, however, this is what men want (run away with them, get married and have a lot of kids). If that’s the case, he will show multiple signs of interest in you and the same body language.

When he calls you hun, it is a sign that you should ask yourself, “Could I live with him on a desert island drinking coconut water and eating hand-caught fish for eternity?”

4. He wants to make you feel good about yourself

When you’re feeling down, your male friends might call you hun to try and cheer you up. To make you feel better about yourself and your life, they may contact you, hun.

5. He’s just flinging with you

Most of the time, he is just flirting with your hun. However, “hun”, a soft flirt word, is more appropriate than “babe” and “sexy” and implies that he values you as a woman. He doesn’t want his words to come across as self-indulgent jerks.

6. It is a sign of his genuine affection

Hun can be used to refer to genuine affection for a person. It’s normal for a man to call his female friends “hun” as well as his partner. This is because it’s a term that expresses respect and affection, not attraction.

7. He’s just having a conversation

If you don’t know the guy and he calls you hun all of a sudden, it’s obvious that he’s simply making conversation. It’s not so obvious what is behind the conversation that he wants.

8. He Means “I Want You To Be My Girlfriend”

Sometimes, guys are attracted to you so if he calls you “hun,” he is saying that he wants to make you his girlfriend. However, he will only say “hun” when he speaks.

9. He doesn’t like the pet name “Honey”.

He may choose to use the term “hun” instead if he doesn’t want to call you something provocative, such as sexy, babe or sweetie or honey. Men who do not want to send mixed messages to their girl’s friends will often use words such as hun instead of words that could be misinterpreted.

10. He knows you don’t like being called “Babe”.

If a man respects you and doesn’t call you babe or sexy he is more likely to keep your real name or use safe words such as hun, sister or whatever you like to be called.

11. He makes fun of your clothes

“Hun” is a top comment that guys make when commenting on the clothing of a female friend. It’s the most frustrating thing about this though because you can’t determine if it’s positive or negative without looking at his body language.

12. He calls all his female friends Hun

As a nickname, some guys use the term “hun” to refer to all their female friends. These cases don’t involve any sexuality, but it sounds more like them calling you “bro” or “sister”.

13. He Respects Your Relationship

If a guy is aware that you are in a relationship and respects that fact, it’s more likely that he will stick with safe nicknames such as hun or use your first name strictly than call you something else. However, this not does mean he would not want to be in a relationship if given the opportunity.

14. He is trying to be supportive

Men who are truly your friend, such as your significant other, will use the term “hun” when they want to support you (rather that when they want to flirt with or be friends with you). You might be having trouble dealing with something recently, or he may just want to help you.

15. He wants your reaction

Men want to see how women react. It’s not surprising that men will sometimes call you hun to test your reactions. If you aren’t agitated, he may try babe or sexy to see how you react.
