    Surely i can't be the only one that's noticed this, it seems a lot of guys on the net from china / india / pakistan somewhere along the line have been taught calling another guy "Dear" is cool / normal.

    This has to stop, and it seems to be widespread, I feel like im speaking to my grandmother or something.

    Settle down now Dear.
    It's a term of endearment and took me a bit of getting used to but
    what the heck? I'm not going to turn down business because someone
    referred to me as "Dear".

    It's better than calling you some types of derogatory names.

    Don't sweat the small stuff . . . At least they are being friendly.

    LOL mate, I'm laughing my ass out right now... Yes, I had been talking to a salesperson from China and he was calling me dear all the time.
    I, initially, thought he was a girl but most sentences he sounded like a guy

    Conclusion: one of the most awkward moments in my life.

    Before I joined BHW, I'm in lots of FB groups about SEO and blogging. Most of the members are Indian/Pakistani so you can just imagine how many bros and dears I've read. But it's part of their culture so we've to accept it. :D

    You will also see that in every major city in the world.

    Live and Let Live. You should be comfortable enough with
    your own manhood to not let things like that bother you.
