|So, don't be surprised when some Chinese guys call you 帅哥 (Shuai 4 Ge 1), Guest7057. If you really look handsome, that would be a different thing. Wait, do you know how Chinese people, especially those young guys, call those girls who don't look pretty? They usually call them 恐龙 (Kong 3 Long 2 Dinosaur). Actually, this word is very popular in the internet.|

|My female friends would often call a waiter shui ge to get his attention- works better than fuwuyuan and you tend to get better service!|

I think it is different from 'sweetie'. We call our lover, families or people we are very familiar with 'sweetie', right? But Chinese people sometimes address people they first meet Shuai Ge or Mei Nv. For example, when you are lost, you have to ask for directions. Suddenly, a young boy passes by. Then you can say 'Shuai Ge, I am lost. Can you tell me how I can get to XXX?"
Usually, people are very happy when you call them Shuai Ge or Mei Nv even though they are not handsome or pretty.

|GUEST37818||Google translator gives "guy" back for Shuaige (so, very neutral), and "beauty" for Mei Nv (sounds like a compliment).|

|you are thinking too much ,like you, "shuaige" just means "hey! boy!" "meinv" just means "hey girl", because we don't know his/her name|
