Most Helpful Guy
It does not mean a guy sees you as a cute. Cute is a compliment, it refers to a particular type of attractiveness. It does not mean he would date you, necessarily, but it doesn't mean that he wouldn't date you either. Physical attractiveness and relationship material are two independent sliders. A girl can be super attractive, but not be considered relationship material because her personality sucks too much. A girl could be a little less attractive than a guy generally likes, but just be so fun to be around, so into the same things, the a guy will date her anyway.
So, for you, accept cute as a compliment, but don't think of it as a sign of relationship interest OR disinterest. It is a word that refers to your physical appearance, not how much a person would want to date you. It is a good first step in attracting the attention of a guy though, for him to want to possibly spend time getting to know if you would be good to date or not.
