Oh Dear!


At what age do you become a ‘dear’?   A woman may go through life being a girl; gal, lass, hon, honey, babe, luv and eventually a ‘dear’  A man may go through life being a boy; lad, guy, dude,geezer, old-boy.  Usually it’s a person who is older or younger than the person they ‘label’ for example a teenager may perceive a 50-year-old as a ‘dear’ or ‘geezer’ whilst a 60-year-old may see the same person as ‘honey’ or ‘dude’ So when I create a new character I try to see it from several different viewpoints in order to get the character ‘right’ for the story.

  1. Choose a label by the response you’ll get. “Hey babe” will be very different from “yes dear”. So choose wisely.
    Blessings…
