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 ;)

sometimes guys will say that "cute" means less pretty than "hot."
but 99% of the time, its something a guy will say because they think if they say hot, the girl will not respect them, or think that he means it in a perverted manner. in essence its a nicer way of saying hot without seeming like a jerk

Yeah, cute is more of an endearment that includes like a sweet factor, and generally a longer term interest. Hot is often the looker that's got the goods, that the guy wants to bed and send home. Beautiful I think is generally reserved for the super beautiful people of the world or if a guy is falling in love, then beautiful comes out. I've always been the "cute" one, and I'm totally cool with that.
