I have trouble believing people when they call me beautiful/pretty/cute. I don't feel like those thins, and I've been told that I'm not. I usually feel as if a person is complimenting me as a joke, out of pity, or for their own benefit. However, I do believe people who say that I'm attractive online. They've only seen pictures of me that I wanted them to see, so the image they have of me is pretty since I made it that way. how about you guys?

It depends who said it. If its my mom then no, moms say that. If its a girl trying to sell me clothes , sunglasses, clothing accessories , etc. then no I'd assume she's trying to get me to buy it.
When girls on the street tell me that I believe them. In the scenerio When a girl i just met the other day is down to hook up, and i somehow asked her why she's down , she says "you're hot", i believe it.
Now if I ask directly about my looks, im skepticle because she's likely not going to tell me im ugly if she thinks im ugly.

Yes, sure, why wouldn't I?
Either you don't believe it yourself, or you don't place much stock in other people, either by virtue of their honesty or ability to identify ''attractive'' as you see it.
Attraction is subjective to the region, culture, group, and even the individual, so if what you call attractive doesn't line up with what they find attractive you might not believe them if they say you're attractive.
If it's an issue of not trusting other people, that's an issue that many women have, because there is a rather large chunk of the gene pool who dishes out compliments on attractiveness as a form of manipulation.
If you've had to deal with such people too often or at the wrong times then it's easy to see how they could also have stigmatized you to not believe it when anyone else calls you attractive.
Wishing you the best of luck.1
