Why do girls say "cute" instead of hot?
What happened to girls calling guys "hot" is cute the new hot or is cute a word for being less attractive?

I believe the reason is that hot resonates on only a physical level. This is more attractive to guys cause face it if she looks like Megan Fox we are amazingly skilled at ignoring a lack of personality.
Cute on the other hand is more all encompassing more like what girls tend to go for. It resonates emotionally and includes personality as much as looks.
i wondered the same thing too man.
like girls have said here, often when girls say cute its because theyre putting your personality in there too, not just the way you look.
if you're at a pool and you're in shape and some girl sees you almost naked like that she's gonna think sexual things and say you're hot. but otherwise (unless you're really physically attractive to them) they'll just say cute
also I think some girls would feel awkward blatantly telling you "youre hot" lol. even if they think it.
idk about you but rarely have I straight up told some girl "you're hot", unless she was my girlfriend or something. instead I'd say "youre attractive" or "youre really good looking". I think that's how girls feel by saying a guy is "cute"
