What does "cute" mean to a guy?

What does it mean when a guy says a girl is "cute"?

I have had a guy at a party say to me "you're pretty cute, you know that?!" and also had a guy friend tell me that his friend thought I was "cute."

what does that mean? and what about compared to "hot " or "Beautiful"? is cute more about personality than the other 2?

  • Well I'd say it is more about personality. I just answered another question like this not too long ago actually. I use the word cute for girls who just make me want to squeeze them. Not in a threatening way but like a child would her favorite stuffed animal. Hot is all about sex appeal. Beautiful is mostly the way you look. Hot and Cute have a lot to do with personality because so much of what makes a girl cute and what makes a girl hot is in what she does as well as how she looks. Beauty is just visuals. Hope that helps ;)
