What Does It Mean When a Guy Calls You Love?

Sophie Simons
April 27, 2023

In this blog, I will share some signs that a boy shows when he calls you by love, for example, my love or just love, etc. According to different experiments and studies, there are many meanings of a boy calling you to love. We will look deeper into the signs and meanings of somebody saying you love while talking. Keep reading for the explanation, so when somebody calls you love, you will know what they exactly mean rather than assuming things. 

7 Reasons Why a boy calls you love and their meaning?

1. Accent

Sometimes calling somebody love is not love or affection-related but just in their language and accent. Most British people call love dear or address somebody with kindness. According to them, it is not a term or word of affection but of kindness. So do not get misguided if a British guy calls you to love because he might not be in love with you, and you will assume that he is saying it because he loves you, but the reality will be the opposite.

Many people are misled by the accent of British people because they are so polite and kind in their way of talking that other person thinks they are talking with love. 

2. Attraction

Another reason a boy calls you to love is that he is attracted to you and tries to give you clues in his conversations. Some boys are very shy, like introverts, and lack expression of their feelings, so they do not say anything directly to your face. Rather he would address you by calling you to love. In this case, he will partially express himself, and if you are ok with it, maybe he will express more about his feelings to you.

If he senses that you are not ok with that or you will be harsh on his behavior, he will get silent, or he will say that he was just calling you to love in the act of kindness. 

3. He loves you 

Sometimes some boys are extroverted and very expressive about their feelings, so they directly say to your face that they love you and call you love because they feel affection for you. They do not keep in mind that your mind is feeling bad or annoyed about the sudden expression of love, or maybe you do not feel the same way for them.

They just keep it simple and straight but there is a drawback of being straightforward you might hurt somebody or make them feel uncomfortable and they have no clue how should they respond to your proposal. 

4. Words for greeting 

In many languages calling love to somebody is just a way of greeting people, particularly when cross-genders meet and greet. Many people get confused when they are addressed by love on the first interaction with somebody and what they should reply in response.

For easy conversation, you should keep it simple so the other person does not get uncomfortable and the conversation leads to friendship, then friendship into a good relationship

5. Nonserious about love

Some boys do not take love so seriously, and they keep everybody calling love because they do not know the true meaning of love. Such boys have no intentions of making you feel loved, nor are they expressive. They just try to be over-smart or overconfident about the way they are.

Stay away from such people because falling for such boys who know nothing about love may harm your feelings and emotions. If you want to get into a relationship, make sure that both of you know what love is and what it takes to be in love with somebody. 

6. Way of talking 

In this heading, I would like to share the difference between accents and greetings. Accent means that the people of a particular area have a particular tone when they talk, and greetings mean to meet somebody nicely verbally. Keep in mind that the way of talking is directly linked with the nature of a person. If a person is rude or arrogant, they will talk to you in a very rude and mean way.

On the other hand, when a person is nice to you, he will talk to you politely, and he will make sure that he does not break your heart with his words. So he might call you by love while he is having a conversation with you. If such a guy is not faking to be nice it might be a good chance that you are meeting a nice guy having a polite heart and a nice way of talking. 

7. Flirting 

Yes! This is a red flag for all relationship seekers, and as mentioned in the above heading, flirting is also a type of faking and portraying themselves as somebody that they are not in real. I am talking about flirting; nowadays, it is very normal to notice that people are flirting on social media as well as in real life. Telling other people lies about them and making them feel special, but these are just lies due to flirting. Such boys have a bad habit of exaggerating everything about girls and beautifying it more for them.

This is a big red flag because many people fall into this trap. I call it a trap because when you are seeking a relationship or somebody nice to be friends with, a fake person and a person who keeps on telling lies is not a good option to rely on. Some innocent girls still fall into these traps created by flirty boys. The point is such flirt boys keep on telling you nice and lovely words to make you feel special but do not fall for it. 


These are some signs that are reasons why a boy calls you to love while talking or when you guys meet each other. Some of these reasons are very real, but some reasons are so fake that you cannot rely on them.
