Just curious, because all my life I've been called "cute" but rarely "hot". Now I'm a little older I get called "handsome" more often but still "cute".
Do girls call guy "cute" as a safer way of expressing their attraction. Are they are afraid if they openly say hot (outside of their group of friends) they might "let the cat out of the bag" about their attraction?
When I was younger I used to take the cute compliment as inferior to "hot".
To me both cute and hot describe a good looking man. The hot one just has raw sex appeal and I want to have sex with him. The cute guy I would still have sex with most likely, there just isn't this strong sex appeal radiating from his pores. He also might be less aggressive and more passive and submissive and sweet whereas the hot guy might be more masculine, maybe not. He might be more aggressive etc. Guys with tattoos I usually think of as hot for example. Cute and hot both mean an attractive guy though.
I don't use "hot" too often because to me it describes purely physical/sexual attraction. So I'll usually use hot when talking about celebrities or guys who I think are really attractive but have no real interest in. But if it's a guy I'm interested in or dating then I'll usually call him cute because I also find his personality attractive.
Hot = very physically attractive
Cute = physically attractive and they make me smile =)
Cutes good, guys may not like it entirely but cute or handsome or hot, they're a compliment.
Personally I would refer to a guy who I think is attractive and has a good personality as "cute". Fore me, the term "hot" is what I would say about an actor who's attractive, but that's about all I know about him lol...
Let's say, if I call why boyfriend cute, then it's because I think he's handsome and I like he's personality. I think I would only tell my boyfriend he's hot if we were being intimate..
So I guess for me "hot" is more like sexy..? lol
Hot is pure sexual attraction
Cute is more about personality, expression combined with looks.
