Littles!! How do you talk?


Kitkey

Recommended Posts

As a new little I've noticed on this site and in this environment I'm in little space a lot more, probably due to all the daddies and littles around making me feel more comfortable. But when I'm talking to new people, especially daddies, my instinct is to type in the same way I talk when in little space but that seems weird and I get selfconscious that they find it strange yet talking like an adult seems weirder. I was just wondering if anyone else feels this way and how you all talk when you first start getting to know someone on here? Also any tips would be helpful ^.^ x

I don't really baby talk at all, so I guess I always talk like an adult so I'm not a ton of help... I would say talk however feels natural

Speak however you feel comfortable. No one on here will judge either way. :) 

 

For myself personally I usually start off speaking more as a big girl, then once I feel more comfortable, my little side will come out more and I'll end up speaking more littleish/babyish. After that, it's usually just how I feel. If I feel little, I'll speak little, if I don't feel as little, my speech is more mature and big girlish.

I used to type how I speak phonetically e.g. "M not rully sure. M probally nut going to watch a movie latur afterall."

But it's been misinterpreted as babytalk, so I only speak like that to close friends who know that's just how I speak irl.

 

I don't personally like reading baby talk around the forum. It feels weird, like something that should be over PM with your friends or Daddy/Mommy or w.e.

Obviously others disagree and think it's cute though. So I guess it's up to you.

Thank you for your input, I think after reading through some forums on here I have found that talking like that seems to be a private thing and down to the daddy and little talking to each other so I'm sure I will find the way that I'm comfortable with in time ^.^ thank you so so much:)

From my personal point of view, I'm normally quite pedantic about spelling and grammar but quite forgiving on here.  It's informal, it's relaxed, it's cute, up to a point; just as long as it's readable and preferably doesn't come across as too contrived. 

Always remember that someone else has to read it, you don't want a conversation to be hard work...

I dislike reading baby talk on the forum. It makes it hard to understand what people are saying, and text is already easy to misinterpret.

Baby talk isn't personally my thing. Its cute to read it from some of the members here, tho! The Chatroom is always full of it and its good for a giggle. I talk how I type :)  As I have said a million times to a million people  -We are ALL different, we all like different things :)

i don't really babytalk, but i get a little more childish if typing when I'm little. like talking with a lot of exclamation marks!!!!!!! or just more careless with spelling. so just talk how it makes u most comfortable!

I type normal, I feel really awkward if I don't.

When I talk or type to daddy, I usually have keywords/shortened cute words I make up. (ie panties = pan pans) etc. Only with him though.

heh i'm such an english major that i feel terrible typing in any way that isn't correct. i don't bother capitalizing when i type on the forums or text daddy but when i text others i usually capitalize and punctuate and whatnot. usually i only do text speak when upset (if i ever say lol, trust that what you said isn't actually funny...) or when being sarcastic. when speaking, i never baby-talk. i find it pointless and dumb. my daddy enjoys my eloquence in writing and speaking, so to baby-talk would actually take away from what he likes about me.

Personally, I speak normally most of the time but my natural way is to cuteify words. See? There, I just did it. 

 

When I go into the forums and see people just being little, I bow out quick-like. I mean, some of it's fun, but I'm a little girl little, not a baby. Also I'm an intellectual, and I will get bored if all there is is glitter and rolling around like GIR going on. (#InvaderZim)

 

Still, do what you does. Seems like most in the forums are all over the baby talk. Goferit.

I don't think you should ever feel self conscious about that. You enjoy it, and it's something you do. Everyone has their own dynamic in this community. Some are mono others are poly, some baby talk, some don't. What is important is you have fun and be free. If anyone tries to stop you, then they aren't worth being in your life hehe. Personally, speaking as a caregiver, I feel it helps me get into littlespace and respond better, the more in littlespace the person I am speaking to gets.

I don't like baby talk at all. I don't enjoy reading it or hearing it, but I'm in a DD/lg forum so I expect it here. If I don't want to read it I can move on. I think you should do whatever feels good and natural to you. You aren't responsible for anyone else's feelings or opinions. If they find what you do "weird" then they can move on too. Have fun!

Nothing wrong with it at all and the main thing is to just be yourself and comfortable. One thing I will say is just make sure what you type is understandable, it can be very confusing at times :).

I don’t usually do baby talk - but, being in this online environment does make me want to some times - whatever you feel :)

Even as a kid I wasn't really a baby talker so I don't baby talk now as a little. I might alter some words, but still speak properly. I will admit that the idea of trying to even baby talk makes me feel really embarrassed. I guess maybe because growing up my mom would constantly correct and scold me at a really young age any time she thought I even sounded like I might be baby talking... even though I wasn't, I was still learning how to say the words right.

 

As far as baby talking in the community goes, because I feel like it's a part of kink I prefer people to not baby talk at me because even though I am happy to discuss DD/lg with others I am not comfortable with them engaging in the kink with me without my consent... if that makes any sense. I feel like that should be kept between consenting partners and friends. However, I also don't make a big deal of it when it happens because I'm really not interested in getting confrontational with other people about it. I've noticed in the community when asked to stop some will get bratty or offended instead of being understanding so I just keep it to myself and deal with it.

I agree with this very much.

 

I’m not a fan of baby talking at all , I’ve had experiences where I’ve been trying to genuinely get to know someone and trying to be their friend.. it makes it extremely difficult trying to have a conversation when most of what you get back is baby babble. I get that it’s used for some people in little space , but as someone who is more a middle I just can’t deal with it. If I have to decipher peoples messages , I’m less likely to be interested. As Vamp said , I avoid the confrontation because it’s not my place to judge how others are little or talk to their partner.... but I’m not your partner.. so pls don’t baby talk to me ! *pulls eyeballs out “ it makes me feel like I’m being forced to be the mature person and it feels like someone is trying to pressure me into being a caregiver because I identify as the older person.

 

I also believe its triggering for me in general , because I genuinely hate babies and children.. hearing baby babble , or crying , baby noises.. makes my ears feel like they’re bleeding. This might be somewhat ironic considering I’m a middle , but whet teen / preteen enjoys babies and all the crying and babble ?! If someone can hold off on that style of typing or speaking , awesome. I have no problem getting to know you , but I just can’t deal with it when it’s treated like it can’t be stopped. As consenting adults , we have control over our fingers and how we type and speak to people.

 

Just my two cents , and two cents ain’t worth much nowadays.

I write with normal spelling and grammar, although I might use words like potty or blankie. I speak with a higher pitched voice when I'm little but also when I'm excited. It's really natural for me and I used to not even notice I did it until some people had to point out I was speaking different.

 

I'm not the biggest fan of reading baby talk on here because it can be hard to understand. But ultimately I don't care that much. You do you.

I think another thing for me is that people will type how it sounds out loud, but even a child that isn't saying words properly will think it properly in their head. It just doesn't come out right. Just like when people create a stutter in text chat. Sure you may stutter out loud, but you don't really stutter in your brain so I wonder about stuff like that sometimes. It just further makes me feel like really what they're doing is trying to role play with me or engage me in kink which is where that discomfort comes in.

I personally don't do baby talk. A good number of littles don't, so don't feel pressured to do something that others do if it's not your thing. What do I do in little space? My voice sometimes will change octaves, but that's basically it.
