OK girl you just unanimously got the whole damned site to say "Yes" to it being a good thing. Explain to me what you really want out of this. Are you hoping it's a bad thing? I mean seriously what the f*** else do you want, woman?!
YES! YES! YES!
IT"S A GOOD THING!
NOW GO FORTH AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT FOR CHRIST'S FUCKING SAKE!
When said one-on-one to you, 'cute' is a guy trying to express himself emotionally to tell you he likes you. When said around his mates in a 'blokey' sort of way as a random girl walks past, it means "that girl's hot/I'd do her etc." When said around his mates when talking specifically about a girl he cares about, it means he adores her.
I think it may be a relative thing. For instance, if one is in the habit of being regaled with phrases like, "Hey Moonface! how deep do them craters go!", or, "Hey porky! why ain't you in the lunch line!", then, I suppose being addressed as "cute" might be a treasured delight. On the other hand, of one is more frequently acknowledged with greetings such as, "Mamma, you you put the sizzle in hot!", or "I never seen any babes like you in toyland", then perhaps being referred to as "cute" might might bring with it disappointment. Personally, I'll settle for cute anyday..
lol I was just going over this with my friend mellisa. when guys use cute or sexy, they are subconsciously putting you in a category. sexy means that you are indeed hot, but in a way that he wants to have you in bed, usually that's about it, you can be cute at times but in his mind you are already labeled as the "sexy" one.
on the other hand if he calls you cute, YOUR IN. cute is what a guy looks for when he's grown up and done playing the field. its the girl he can build a relationship to, bring home to meet the family, ect. like sexy you can be cute and sexy at times but ultimately he will have his eye on you and label you as the one with "potential.
granted this isn't what 100% of when men think, but its what the ones you are looking for think.
well if he knows you well then, just like some others say, it probably also implies your personality not just your looks but if he doesn't then it means that he thinks you're physically attractive. so it's definitely a good thing! and "cute" is usually described as someone who's small, has small facial features, etc...I should know.
Yeah, it's alright. It could mean he thinks of you and little and cute like one does to a small child or puppy, but more likely he just means that you're aesthetically pleasing. You could overanalyze any word like that though. Like, does hot mean he likes you or that he just wants to get with you?
It's better than saying you're ugly! But you probably already knew that.
