|1.||babe = overused|
'Babe' only in the sense that people use it all the time and to friends or sometimes people they don't even know that well.
This is when babe is used to the max anywhere it can be used, even when its needless and false as it carries no real sentiment; unlike when used with a boy or girlfriend.
"Babes" can also be used in all the above cases as a kind of 'babe' replacement.
1. "Hey babe!" as a greeting
2. "Awww babe" When somthing bad happens
3. "Can you give me a lift babe?" when they want somthing
4. "love you babe!" As a sign off
This shows all the times babe = overused
