Do guys not like being called 'cute'?

I call my boyfriend cute all the time, he seems to not be bothered by it. But my ex hated it, do you guys hate being called cute?

  • some guys don't like to be called cute. The word "cute" can be used to insult a mans masculinity. ... maybe I should put this in terms that'd be easier to understand... When you call a man cute, he'll think that you're going to pinch the cheeks on his face and such. It's like calling a man a boy. Inside we think you're trying to insult us.

    Don't use the word cute unless your with your friends, talking about kids, looking at clothes, or with a pet but don't call your boyfriend that. Instead you should just call him babe, honey, hun, etc.

  • Some girls use 'cute' to mean 'sweet in a naively innocent sort of way that I want to hug but would never ever fool around with'. That would be a bad thing.

    Others use 'cute' as their standard word for 'attractive'. That is a good thing.

  • It can sound as if you are referring him to as childish, so you might just want to refer him to it in private, but most of the time, guys will take it as a compliment and not react, but you do get the ones who feel as if its an attack on their manliness lol,x

  • Like you already noticed, it strongly depends on the guy. Some may like it, some will hate it. It wouldn't bother me, but I don't particularly love to be called like that 10x a day, every day.

  • There are guys who can't take cute as a compliment. I can tell you that I'd take being called cute as a compliment.

    This is because girls who call me cute usually have sex with me.

    Would you like it if men called you handsome? :)

  • It seems like guys often don't like it. They take it as rejection or a bad thing when it's actually supposed to be a good thing. If you two are close or he has told you that he doesn't mind, then I wouldn't worry about it.
