What to you does “sweet man” mean? This is the only form of address I hear from one person even though they know my name and we have met IRL, yet for some unexplained reason, and yes I have asked why, the only salutation is “sweet man”.
If we weren’t speaking to each other I could understand this as a form of goodbye. Yet we talk and I can make them laugh but not tell me why this singular form of address.
So I open this up to comment. What does “sweet man” mean to you, how and when would you use it?
