Things to know

Regularly read by 50,000+ readers in over 140 countries around the world, "Dear Bro Jo" is published several times a month.

This is column is just one guy's opinion, and while he does his best to keep what he thinks, says and writes in-line with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, "Dear Bro Jo" is not an LDS Church website. (And Sister Jo thinks you should know that he's sometimes wrong, and often way too opinionated for his own good.)

Nothing here is meant to take the place of talking with parents, leaders, or Church authorities. Please, if you need serious help, talk to a trusted adult, leader, and / or professional counselor.

Dear Bro Jo,

What does it mean when a guy calls you Kiddo pretty much all of the time ?


Dear Kiddo,

It either means that he's trying to establish some distance but still be friendly because you and he should not, for whatever reason (perhaps he's too old or too not-single)  . . .

Or that he's nick-naming you as a term of endearment.

Maybe he likes you.

Maybe he doesn't.

Either way, if you don't like the nick-name, tell him.

If it doesn't bother you, then don't worry about it.

Communication is the Key!


- Bro Jo
