I've had the great joy of dating men for over a decade, so I'm pretty used to adults who act like children. But baby talk is different from not.
Why do some adults speak like babies? Why do some adults baby talk sometimes? Why would a couple speak to each other using baby words and sounds?.
Genuinely curious about the ubiquity of “baby talk” in otherwise adult relationships, NBC News BETTER consulted a relationship psychologist.
An old friend has developed the habit of talking in a baby voice (we're adults). We don't see each other too often these days, but when we do.
