Why do some guys hate to be called "beautiful"?

I'm kind of complimented by random girls as beautiful. For me it's a huge compliment. But basically I've seen most guys think it as something feminine.

  • I won't lie the first time I heard my friend call a guy beautiful I found it an odd choice of word.

    But now I find myself saying it when I do see someone beautiful.

    So I guess it depends on how the girls say it.

    Some says it in a way that does sound girly and just throwing a word without really caring much for the meaning.

  • We often translate it as "You"re enjoyable to look at but I'd never have sex with you". Same with being called cute.

    Most guys prefer being called hot because it is more likely to imply sexual interest. However anything is better than ugly I suppose.

  • Beautiful to me in a man is someone with that flawless, almost metrosexual look which a lot of women love in a man, I mean they eat it up, and break their neck for it.

    So I feel like most men would see "beautiful" as the equivalent of "pretty".

    • Those men are stupid...

      "Beautiful" to me is concrete and fire and grit and scars and love, and it's absolutely the highest aesthetic compliment I could pay any man, anywhere.

      "Pretty", on the other hand, is just... underwhelming, whether for a woman or a man. Best applied to 6-year-old girls lol.

    • @redeyemindtricks the concrete, fire, and grit would be sexy to me. I like those dirty tanned working boys and I just had to turn around to admire one today who so sexy. He had that Momoa build, dark thick beard, tanned skin, sweaty and workin in the sun. He was sexy. I don't think I could feel the same calling him beautiful. Gorgeous maybe? Beautiful just feels feminine to me.

    • There's beautiful, and there's beautiful.

      If you can only say it while breathing *in*... that ain't feminine.

  • I think it internally "that is one beautiful man", but I use more masculine terms when actually complimenting a guy.

  • I guess they think girls are the only ones who should be referred to as "beautiful". For me, when I call a guy beautiful that's the biggest compliment I could give him, look wise. It's like no other words can describe his looks and "beautiful" just sums everything up perfectly.

  • Me calling a man beautiful is a different kind of attraction. Like he's supermodel material. I wouldn't date him but I think he's beautiful. I call men's souls beautiful often though.

  • I guess for some men, they are not very secure with their masculinity. Being called 'beautiful' may make them feel less manly. Just a guess...
