When guys say your "cute" what does that really mean?

Does that mean you're average looking. I know my guy friends say a girl is "hot" but only say that about girls they would want to hook up with. So what's the difference between hot and cute. If there is any difference.

  • Cute is just a particular type of attraction. Cute, pretty, hot... they are just ways of categorizing an attractive girl. Cute generally refers to a younger look, rounder face, perky, fun. Pretty would generally have a thinner face, more pronounced cheekbones, probably less 'round' in general, though pretty could still have some curves. Hot is generally reserved for someone that looks like they could be on a magazine cover. It is a very particular look.

    All are attractive though, and all are dateable.

  • That really depends on context, the tone of voice it's said in, and who it is said to.

  • The way I use it:

    Cute -> a girl that I find attractive to date.
    Hot -> a girl that I find to be a good one night stand, but not more.

  • cute = pretty
    Hot = sexy

    a man who uses sexy or a girl who uses that normally i find quite perverse and they have a very sexual mind which is not a good thing, because the see you as an object that can be used for their satisfaction...

    but cute simply means you're pretty ie you have a really good looking face.

    • Yeah that's what my guy friends say. They see the cute girl as a possible relationship. & they see the hot girl to bang. I know that's not always the case. But thanks for your answer.

  • I believe the word "cute" is typically used to describe a girl who is attractive in an innocent way.

  • Not a guy, but I think it depends on context! Sometimes guys say it to be polite sometimes they just mean it straight up. I think a lot of the times for me I noticed when guys say I'm cute they think I'm dateable and are thinking holidinh hands and cuddling cuz cute can include personality... when they say im hot it means f'able so they're more after sex.
