I used to get called "cute" straight to my face a lot
Then I started going to the gym and working out a lot and eating differently so my acne would go away. I'm a lot leaner and more muscular and have more jawline and cheekbones and stuff. And I started to hear people behind my back that I'm "hot" now
But nobody EVER tells me anything about my looks straight to my face, instead actually a lot of people tell me I'm more of an ***hole now heh
I don't really think it matters as long as you get with someone you like
I get called both, but cute is more of reaction to clothes I wear (like girly style) or childlike things that I do. But guys usually call me hot or beautiful if they are complimenting me. I think cute is a bit patronising really, but I don't mind it unless it's all the time. Being called hot is just an ego boost/someone showing interest in you sexually. Both can be good or bad depending on the situation.
I get a lot of complement from people around me,cute,hot,attractive,i've a very nice smile everyone I know says I've a very nice smile,i look funny and horrible when I'm angry,when I pierced my nose,they say I look cutter.
I see myself like a cute kid lol because I've a small face and short hair.
But that doesn't mean that I don't look like a female.
