Not necessarily a smoking hot girl, but one you'd define as 'cute'? Always wondered whether being called 'cute' over 'hot' was a bad thing or not, having lots of guy friends, it's a little confusing. Is it a compliment, and would you date someone 'cute'?
If I call a guy cute its most definitely a compliment, and I would date them. :)
Looks aren't everything. Is she intelligent, educated, does she have goals in life? That's equally important. It's one of the reasons why White men, when they date interracially, tend to date (East) Asian women. Because those women are stereo-typically intelligent, educated (value education) and have goals in life.
I would never date a White/Brown/Black/Yellow trash girl, even if she's a supermodel. But yes, I would date a "cute" girl if she's not a dumb, no life hoe.
Cute, pretty, and hot are three varieties of attractive. They're all equally attractive, though some guys go for one over another. Cute is usually more approachable, attractive personality, and generally likeable person. Pretty is more put-together, slightly less approachable, and graceful or elegant. Hot is a head-turner, sometimes intimidating, and someone you and your buddies ogle at. They're all good things to be. If you're described as any, you're making an impact.
