Slang question since I'm not a native english speaker so the meaning's kinda lost to me
is calling someone "boo" or "hun" indicative of... feelings I guess or can it be said to a normal friend?
They're both short for the old fashioned "Honey Boo", which is about as obnoxiously cute as you can get when it comes to flirty compliments. Could occasionally be used in a mocking manner depending on context. But I'd say they're more of "affectionate" terms rather than normal friend terms. Can't 100% confirm since I don't no how girls talk to one another; it may be more common as normal compliments with them.
So if your girl is throwing those words your way, you basically have her attention now.
... yeah like, we're not something serious I think yet but we call each other that, mostly because we used to call each other hun a lot and then she started calling me "boo" and well I took it up but I didn't think too much of it.
And uh I don't reaaaally want to like, put a step forward in case I'm terribly confused?
... Even if she said that I'm the one person she knows that knows her the best... And considering she knows a lot of people... And we talk literally everyday even if it's just a couple of minutes... And she tells me a lot of her personal stuff and struggles and...
Relationships are hard, how do people do this.
Would really damn love to read people's minds because it'd make this whole thing a loooot easier to me.
Like, I can feel and know that she trusts me a lot and we're close to the point of having matching profile pictures but I'm not sure if it means anything serious or not and I'm terribly scared of attempting any advance of any sorts aaaaaaaa.
Wait how can you implement stuff like boo into your relationship dialog without thinking there even is a relationship to begin with
She's obviously being flirty with the language boundaries you're used to using in this case imo. It doesnt have to come attached with feelings but it should be a pretty good indicator of how comfortable she is with the idea of you and her, at least
I'm not on here as often as I usually have been, but I see your posts on this time to time and I'd say - unless I'm missing any real world context - the next steps of you guys' relationship is up to you imo. She likes you and hangs out around you, is relatively comfortable using these pet names, is receptive and supportive of the stuff you have said, and all things considered is incredibly open to you specifically, right? I don't know the exact degree of all that irl, but does it feel like a typical friendship angle or does she look like she's looking for something more out of you? Do you want something more out of this? Do you want to "risk" that or take it slow instead?
Me personally, if i were in that situation and didn't know one way or the other but wanted it to be something more, I'd try and hang out as much as possible, similar to dates but not formally calling them that, and seeing where it goes from there. But I'm not so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Either way dude don't stress too much over it; It's good to understand the signals that do show up, but sometimes things are simpler than they seem when under a 40xx magnifying glass of scrutiny. Focus on enjoying the moments and understanding what you want first and foremost imo; that'll be what defines the relationship above all else on both your parts
@The Deleter I think you nailed it with your last part. Just, dunno, first time that someone's ever shown actual interest in me and while sure it's not that I've been friendless all my life so far but I've never gotten close to any in... This particular way so I'm not sure how I'm supposed to take all of this, if it's just a matter of being a confider (which is awesome because that kind of trust isn't easy to get) or something more.
Thanks for the relationship advice, this is tough for a first-timer but I'll let the flow go on and see where it leads I guess, not much else I can do.
also @PaulyBFromDa303 goodness gracious no thanks I know that
