Is handsome a compliment?
I was just wondering because I've always been called handsome and never anything else and always hated. to me it was always just something you call somebody that is not gooding but a good person to make them feel better. although recently I've found out there are definitions. so for the guys, do you like being called handsome?for guys and girls, what is your definition of handsome?and I apologize if this is in the wrong category.

handsome is good looking (:haha its a good thing when girls call you handsome. that means your really reallly cute, which you kinda are (; so be proud to be called that, because most guys don't get that kinda compliment. <3

Ive always used Handsome as a complement... Means good looking or attractive.
handsome: good looking
it most definitely is a compliment. I for one, hate using the word hot, I think it's overrated and overused. I would call a guy handsome

Yes, I always take that as a compliment and believe it should be. It's basically the male equivalent to "pretty" for a female.
I've always been called handsome by close family and friends, so I guess you could consider them biased.I guess it depends. If a girl really likes you, and she says you are handsome/cute/gorgeous/adorable, it doesn't matter whether it is true or not (also remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder), the fact that she cares about you enough to complement you on your looks should be more then sufficient for you. If you consider yourself unnatractive, you don't get called handsome by family and friends, but your girlfriend/boyfriend constantly complements you on your looks, that's when you truly know what a special person you have, because you know they are seeing past your looks, and truly love you for you. ;)
handsome is something a mom or grandma would say. unless you're called that when you're all dressed up then that's okay. but for our age I think only being called cute/hot works for us.
