    Interesting problem. That's a tough one. 'Girl' seems to work with girls of younger age than yourself. But use it on a woman that is older than you and you're suddenly seducing them apparantly. Not the particular desired effect there. I can't come up with a noun for older women that is not offensive or is commonly misinterpretted.

    Yeah really. I'd like to use "Hey woman!".... but all the assholes using it as a pejorative ruined it for me.

    To be fair, I'm one of those guys. It's one of my favorites.

    I usually have a variety of pet names for girlfriends because I always seem to have trouble recalling their name on the spot.

    INTP's and women need to get around the same table and come up with something here. Preferably something no asshole would even bother using offensively.

    Like "Taitoi" or "Tyuppeltup".

    What about "lady?"

    Requires a friendly inflection though, which I sadly lack.

    Oh, 'lady' works if you don't know the person. But if you should know the name and call the girl 'lady', the results may be disastrous.

    It's a trick for crying out loud. Like magic! I'm extremely offended that you thought little old ME was able to remember names naturally.

    Oh that's a good one. But yeah, said in a cold way, it might sound like I'm about to steal their purse.
