No, it's better be called cute than not called anything at all. There's nothing wrong with a guy being called cute. I never understood the difference between cute, handsome, or hot frankly but they all are pretty much saying that the guy is great eye candy lol. I'd just accept the compliment and be glad you got it.
i still think being called cute is the worsssssssssssst lol... like the other guy said... kittens are cute.. babies are cute.. I don't want to be cute! :( I feel like I'm being sentenced to the friend zone ha ha
