Some people use "DEAR" as a habit, while some people use it discretely, and some use this word when they are irked. You have to understand the person speaking this word to understand whetheter it is being used as as a sign of comfort or closeness or feeling.

Nothing, it is just a sign of expressing or starting a conversation, in reality the word "dear" is not having any meaning in majority of the time, as a formality lot of them uses,
