When a Guy Talks to You in a ‘Baby Voice’
Have you ever been in a conversation with a guy only for him to speak to you in a ‘baby voice’? Many women have experienced this. To some, it could be cute, while to others it could be seen as offensive or even mocking.
What is ‘Baby Voice’?
The term ‘baby voice’ is used to describe the way someone can sound when they speak in a higher than usual pitch, with a slightly more childish lilt. It can often be seen as being playful or endearing.
It is a form of flirtation?
In some cases, guys may use the baby voice in order to show that they’re attracted to the person they are talking to: they may be speaking in a more playful way, or be ‘un-manly’. A guy using this voice may be conveying a submissive attitude that he hopes will be attractive.
When it isn’t flattering
Sometimes, a guy may use a baby voice as a way to belittle the other person or to mock them. It could even be a way of passive-aggressively making a point. In this case, it would be wise to take it as an indication that the conversation is not healthy and decide to end it.
Ultimately, it is important to remember that different people will interpret the use of ‘baby voice’ in different ways. Although some people might find it a form of flattery, it may not be taken in the same light by all. If it makes you uncomfortable, it is best to end the conversation.
Some conversations may be better left undiscussed. If a guy is talking to you in a baby voice, you should trust your judgment and decide if this is a conversation that you would like to continue.
