When you don't love them. Do southeners actually find this offensively patronising?
usually older women and that's horrible and patronising as well, I don't like it at all.
BUT I THOUGHT IT MEANT THAT YOU LOVED ME
I only call some people love though.
one's you feel disaffected by?
Ones that I like a lot. :)
that was uncalled for.
It'd be like stamping on a hamster. I'm not that cruel
but the question is, where was I born? I hate Northamptonshire, it's a desolate wasteland of nothingness.
you cheery chappy!
and sometimes to other men. This is amusing.
it seems fine at the time but when i think about it its a bit weird
see also : lovey
and they're like
HERE, LOVE, I'M GONNA SMASH YOUR FACE IN.
I mean wtf?
Where's prof_obvs when you need him.
a lot of people say it in london. boys and girls.
If it's 60-something year-old bing-winged Barbera from the local buttie shop ('Bab's Baps' perhaps), who has just served you a delicious bacon barn, and, after you hand her the money, she says "ta' love", then Shirley not?
I'm glad that you went for barm though.
WHATEVER YOU LIKE IT CAN'T HEAR YOU
so I think it's unreasonable to get too pissed off about it.
ditto 'chick'. i hate when northern english people open their mouths, basically.
aka. 'the winner's city of choice'.
more like 'the nobody city of choice'
all i could here was 'EYY UP CHICK. COOP AH TEA LUVVVV' etc.
I suppose that our accent is less sculpted by generations of incest and heroin abuse, but the glasgow accent does have that lovely twang of hatred that you could only get in that part of the world...
and you sound like a retarded goose.
everything sounds like a complaint.
do you think everyone is rab c nesbitt?
Care for a haggis full of heroin, you junky addled dole monkey.
"Listen Love, in the cut and thrust of a chat show, people are gonna get hit"
Such as, "Alight cock, how's it going?"
Or calling someone love.
There's a man at my work who calls everyone cocker.
His surname is Jones though so that's a nice bonus.
i refer to a lot of my girlFREINDS as "my love"
i think it's quite sweet.
You're a hen.
and all my boy friends mate
It is quite common to hear this happen in markets and local shops across the south-east. Thanks.
Older ladies serving a young(ish) gentlemen like myself have been known to call said gentlemen 'love' too.
I don't discriminate - they all get the love treatment*.
*In terms of calling them 'Love'. Few actually get my personal love treatment.
Coming from women, usually nice.
although it can be annoying from women as well, depends I guess. I'd rather just people stay away from it altogether if I'm honest.
which I think is quite nice.
