Being cute means having a youthful/juvenile apperance. Retaining characteristics into adulthood that would be asociated with someone younger. This is why it's good for women to be cute or neotenous. (To an extent.)
So girls when you use "cute" to describe a guy, do you mean it literally that he actually is cute/neotenous, or do you mean he's attractive/good looking but not literally cute.
- I'm too lazy to think about this properly. I think it's good for a guy to be 'cute'.
- I'm too lazy to think about this properly. I think it's a bad thing for a guy to be 'cute'.
- If I call a guy cute I mean that he's attractive/good looking, not literally cute.
- If I call a guy cute I mean it literally, he is actually neotenous in appearance.

I don’t usually use this adjective when complimenting a guy, but when I do call a guy cute I do it because he has this kind of young, boyish kind of look. Better said, he has a baby face. But some girls use this attribute when they feel trapped. For example when a girl is talking to a guy, and the guy compliments her, the girl will feel the need to give the compliment back (girl thing). Now, maybe the guy isn’t exactly her type, so she will use cute or nice, to not hurt his feelings. But being cute, in the literally sense of the word, is not a bad thing.
