Is "beautiful" only for women?
I personally think that men can be beautiful, do you girls think so? And guys, is it insulting to hear you are "beautiful"?

The only looks-related compliment that I don't wholeheartedly like is 'cute' because it implies friend-zone.
But, 'beautiful', 'handsome', 'good-looking', 'attractive' and 'sexy' are all great compliments. I've been called them all, and my favorite is 'sexy'.

Certainly not, especially when I throw on my pump heels and a matching skirt.
I say reserve that word for women...no man relishes in being called "beautiful".
Same as calling a woman handsome!
It's not insulting however the correct term, is handsome. It's very empowering for a woman to call a guy handsome. You rarely hear it anymore
The wording may have a different association with guys and girls,
I could not label a guy as "beautiful" as (from my point of view) it would only apply to girls,
only handsome word for guys.
Not insulting at all... It's a compliment lol
If someone said that I was a beautiful man it would be a compliment I would gladly accept.
Beautiful implies attractive in a feminine sense, which is offensive to men. You don't hear men asking why we can't call women handsome. How about showing men the same courtesy?
Guys are too ugly to be beautiful looking

I hear it mostly used towards women.
But I feel that it can be used towards men as well. But usually the equivalent of calling a man beautiful, is to call him handsome.
When you say a man is beautiful, you are referring to his spiritual qualities
When you say a woman is beautiful you are referring either to her spiritual qualities or her physical qualities but mostly her physical qualities
When I saw this picture, I thought about your question. Here's an example of a beautiful man
link I've called a guy people before, he had soft feminine features. Plus the long hair didn't help. I think only the assholes or the ones who think they are too macho will dislike it. Others will think of it as a compliment or be thrown off because its probably something they've never heard before.
It depends on the type of attractiveness on the guy.
Example: Orlando Bloom is beautiful, and Liam Hemsworth is handsome, its just a different classification like girls with pretty, cute, and gorgeous.
Some men are beautiful, lol like ones who have somewhat feminine features.
I don't hear many women called handsome but have heard it, I find it odd also when a man is called beautiful but whatever it doesn't bug me.
Idk why, but I can't call a guy "beautiful". I can call him "handsome", "hot", "sexy" or "attractive", but not "beautiful".
i don't believe it's limited to females
No, I have seen some men I think are beautiful. I once saw this guy totally naked, he had just got out of the Marines, my mouth drop open...he had the most beautiful body I have ever seen, damn it was fine.
