The problem with this woman is that she starts to call him with affectionate or sweet nicknames like baby or my boy. So he can’t stand that she called him that way. She can’t use those sweet nicknames because it was the same nicknames his ex-girlfriend used to call him, for him is too hard to hear those nicknames because makes him remind her ex.
However he has to overcome the suffering from his past relationship but he is aware that it will take time, she has to understand it if she really wants to be with him. Consequently she has to accept the situation and he ask her please do not call him ¨baby¨ or ¨my boy¨ anymore; otherwise he is going to finish that uncomfortable situation, a situation that drives him crazy.
The argument that he has about the affectionate nicknames is that one of the most difficult things to forget when you broke up with someone is the way the person used to call you, the sweet nicknames. So is better not to remember it in order to overcome his recently past relationship.
