Nothing...grow up. That's a term of endearment that means absolutely nothing, however, if you think she means more than that, just ask.

She appreciates your kindness, usually.

Nothing on the average. Women in restaurants and other places call other men and women sweety all the time in normal conversation.
In that case it is not a term of endearment.
If you have a woman (or man) who only calls you sweety it can then be considered a term of endearment and means they care for you. But that is only if they don't use it with just anyone they come into contact with. In that case it really is meaningless.

It's a term of endearment. You've made yourself dear to her heart in some way. The degree of endearment depends on how many people she lets touch her heart. Today when my 15 year old son asked if I'd be his valentine on his way to play football with the guys I said "I'll always be your valentine sweetie" - but then, I'm not one to use random endearments. Can you judge this ladies' freedom with her loving touches?

I know you have already gotten answers to your question. My computer is down. However, "Sweetie" means nothing unless she's making physical movements (holding your hand, etc.). Some women just use the term automatically. Don't read too much into it.

It's a variation on 'cute'...:)

That she's probably a southern lady. Everyone's a sweetie, honey, or a darlin'.

I use that term all the time... ALL THE TIME. I mean it as an endearing word to people that I encounter throughout my day. It, to me, is more personal than: Hey you! Or nothing at all.

It is a kind and friendly word to use. :)

Hmmm. All of the responses above are good. One other possibility: if you have been condescending to her in some way, which, unfortunately, men in your age group sometimes do without even realizing it, her calling you "sweetie" might be sarcasm.

A man I used to know often call me, "cookie," and I found it offensive, so I started calling him, "cupcake."

That in it's self means no more than when a waitress would say the same thing. It seems to be the custom among men and women today. You, of course know the whole story. I don't. For the most part: it is just the way men and women react with each other.

She probably is just being nice or polite to an old man.
