How could you answer your daughter telling you that she overheard her daddy calling someone sweetheart on his cell phone?

  • It is not uncommon for an older man to call someone younger than himself 'sweetheart' if he knows the individual fairly well and it does not necessarily mean that the husband is in love with that person. 'Sweetheart' is an endearing term generally used for the young, but some men may call their wife 'sweetheart.' Just tell your daughter that her father refers to younger women as 'sweetheart' because he is well liked and more like a father figure to them.
