I don't know if I'm the only guy who thinks like this, but when lately, when girls, or people in general, have called me "handsome", I take it as some kind of insult. It sounds like a step above "cute", but below "hot"; as in, not a "catch." Am I wrong in thinking this?

I agree, handsome is better than hot. If I just think a guy is attractive and don't like him, I'll just say he's hot. If I do like him, then most likely I'll still think he's hot, but I'll use handsome or beautiful more often. Handsome still means you are sexually attractive, but is more respectful than hot in my opinion. Beautiful means you're handsome and are also a wonderful person. And cute is more general I guess; it covers anyone who is visually appealing.1
