Depends on the girl and if she's into 'cute guys'. There are girls who seem to gravitate towards boys who treat them particularly bad, but if the person you have in mind is not self-degrading and if she likes people who treat her well, it's a good thing. By the way I can see why they would say that, you do look cute :) And no, not looking like Brad Pitt doesn't set you up badly for dating. It's romoured that a healthy relationship is not based on the color of your hair/size of your eyes/height but on, you know, the person in its entirety (looks & character). If somebody is not attracted to you they will probably not date you, but I never get it when people ask me if I go for the looks or the character because you can't really separate these two - in the way someone looks at you/a certain group of people or how they treat people in general (strangers/friends) you can see a part of their character. You can't really look at somebody doing nothing at all (even if they're just reading a book and laughing, you know they probably like reading etc) and therefore kinda always judge their character/the impression you get of their character. I don't know, probably a longer answer than you asked for, but that's what I think.
I'd say good!:) I call my boyfriend cute, among other things, he just has a playful and flirty personality and that's what I think is cute!:) and nope, maybe to some girls, but for me it's 95% personality, 5% appearance!:) good luck!:)
Anything above meh is good. Anything above average sparks interest in a girl. But looks aren't all what makes a man fit one of the categories. Their personality offsets it too.
being cute is good but you can be cute and meek and insecure and those last two just aren't attractive. it's about striking a balance between cute and adorable but being mature, secure with yourself and being strong emotionally. if you can be all of that then that's the perfect guy for a lot of girls.
