Does 'cute' generally mean 'attractive'?

I don't know if I'm attractive to others but personally I like how I look. I've been called 'cute' all my life because of how short I am. I've also been complemented by several customers because of my face and sometimes my eyes. But most of those customers who said that were elderly women so I don't know how I look to people around my age. But if I'm referred as 'cute' all the time, does that mean I'm on the attractive side?

  • Men almost always find 'cute' attractive in women over the age of 17 or so.

    • yea but the problem is that I'm short and petit so even though I'm 20, I've been told that I look younger than 20, though I don't know what age people think I look

    • okay thanks :) I always wondered if by being called cute, they thought I looked like a child since children are generally called cute

    • Cute does tend to mean 'small, young, attractive'.

      So when girls call guys cute, sometimes it means they are attracted, and sometimes it means they imagine a 14 year old girl would have a crush on them, but they, themselves, are not interested.

      For women, being petite and youthful are -almost- always a plus. They're not at 14-16, by 20, it's probably a mild plus, from 25 on it is a HUGE benefit.

      You've already survived the bad part, you're into the mildly good and have the decades of it being a plus coming.

      The bad news is fat women will hate you. Sorry.

  • you are beautiful, cute is accurate to you but that can easily turn into sexy or hot if you find the right guy to show that side of you to.

  • I break female attractiveness into "cute," "pretty," and "beautiful."
    All three mean attractive, they just mean it in different ways.

    if you have 3 girls, all are solid 9/10, and one is pretty, one is beautiful, and one is cute, which is the most attractive?
    None. They are equally attractive. 9/10, remember? They are just attractive in different ways.

  • Well when I call a girl cute, yes I'm saying she is attractive... not that I use the term very often.

    I've been referred to as cute myself... never could figure out the intent... a cute guy is what exactly...

  • Cute is good, inherently attractive. Attractive doesn't have to be cute or beautiful. Rare Logical Semantics.

  • Personally I think "cute" is more something used to describe the face and "attractive" is used for the body in general. However it really varies between people.
