He told me to stop calling him babe


So today my boyfriend told me not to call him babe anymore. I asked him why and he said "Because it just sounds weird now."

Like I don't understand why all of a sudden he told me to stop calling him that, he never had a problem with me always calling him that. I dont use it all the time.... It slightly made my heart ache when he told me that... So I just told him I'll call him by his name.

Any idea why he suddenly told me this?
