Have an opinion?
"Cute" is questionable if it's from a guy you're on a date with. You wonder if he's physically attracted to you or if he means cute like a little sister.
I mean a bit of both. I'd never date a sister, but you need to be someone I connect with and feel comfortable around. You know, kinda like a not-sibling.
I associate "cute" as more of a feminine quality, so I'd rather be the one calling my girl cute, rather than vice versa. But it depends on context I suppose. If we're being kind of childish and playful with each other then it could be taken as a term of endearment. My ex said I look "cute" when I'm sleeping, or curled up in bed, and that was quite nice to hear. It can go either way, sometimes I'm in more sensitive, 'feminine' side of personality, so the compliment can be endearing. But when I'm in my masculine 'centre', I'd rather she compliment me on my character, or charm, or confidence, or intelligence, or resourcefulness, or fearlessness, or strength, etc, etc. And I'm not a "macho" kinda guy by a long shot, I do have a soft side.
I know I'm cute. Dont need you to tell me.. Lol.No thats not arrogance. I just dont need nor care for compliments. Its not a boost to my confidence.Id prefer talking about other things. Or if someone had to talk about me. Don't try to flattet me. Just talk. I don't trust flattery
It depends on the intonation.Some girls/women use 'cute' as their standard word for attractive. The best looking guy in the world could walk by, and they'd say he's cute. That's a good cute.Others distinguish between cute vs hot or handsome or whatever. In those cases, cute is normally not great.
It's like saying I'm not man enough to be complimented for anything else. It still feels nice to receive a compliment, cause guys typically only get them on rare occasions, but this one is a bittersweet one to take. Cute means 'I would love to protect and cherish you' basically. A guy shouldn't need to be protected. Its demeaning to be perfectly honest. But the cherished part is nice.
The protecting aspect never crossed my mind. When I think of someone as cute I fell like cuddling them but I wouldn't think they are less manly
Fair enough. I've been called cute before (Few days ago) and I felt mixed feelings. Guess its not so bad?For me, cute means what I said above. I have that desire to protect, but I guess that's specific to me.
Some men may find it off-putting because it makes them think of kittens, but really, "cute" directed at a person who is older than 18 does NOT mean that in the slightest, lol. It's basically just another way to say "hot" or "handsome" without being as explicit.
Depends on who is saying it. If it is a relative then I got no problem. If it is a woman I am attracted to, unless she showed previous signs of heavy flirting, I view that as the "nice guy/friend" word.
Most the time I get it, I thank them but don't have more to add to the conversation. If you're trying to engage a lively conversation, avoid dead ends like that. Bring up things that could lead to more topics so you can learn more about the person. Still, nothing wrong with complimenting them like that though, if you've got another topic you want to jump to. It'd definitely be a solid way to abruptly change topics haha unless you're trying to not give them the wrong idea
I like it.The problem is the context though. It’s what I want to hear from girls, but it’s often not good to hear from girls. Guys like cute in girls so a guy saying cute is very good. But I find girls prefer the aesthetic of “hot” or “sexy” or something excessive like “beautiful”. They tend to steer away from cute and so when they say it to a guy it can comes across as her not being romantically interested.I like cute but if you’re going to use it, make sure it comes across as flirty.
First off, why are girls voting on this poll? Second, yes it’s nice to be complimented, but I don’t really know what cute means and it’s kind of vague when women say it
The guys who believe it definitely appreciate it. Probably just as much as girls do. I don't believe it so I just roll my eyes and move on.
What are you, Hitler? One of the very few times I advocate slapping a woman is when they call you cute.
If you slap womanThen fuck yourself straight away
@Vivaan123 Not a fan of hyperbole, I see.
I tend to prefer it actually, I prefer a woman who looks at me and thinks something like "awww, he's so cute! I wanna hug him and not ever let go!" rather than "he looks so sexy I want him in my bed!", at least that is how I feel on the whole thing.
I prefer a woman who says both in their appropriate times.
Nothing wrong with that.😉
Well mostly they like it but sometimes its a real surprise coz they would just angry that why i said thatAnd some just get angry for being called Honey, or Darling
If it's meant as a compliment, I'll have no problem at all.
It's not so clear to me whether the girl likes me or not with those so I find it kind of confusing.
... unless it's like, "You're cute. I would totally agree to date you if you want." Then I like it.
The main ones I like tend to be related to the body like "you're hot". I found those a more reliable indicator of desire. Confusing ones to me are like, "you're cute", "you're smart", "you're handsome", things of this sort. It's not always clear to me what the girl wants in those cases.
i dont know, when a girl says a guy is cute im assuming she means she only sees him as a friend and totally wouldn't date him but finds something he does cute
When I was younger some girls would call me cute. I always thought that that word was something you call a baby or a puppy, I couldn't see how it applied to me. But it was still a nice compliment, I guess.
I mean, I would like "you're handsome" more. but something is better than nothing."You're cute" is the same word that she will say to another girl or to a child. So I take positively, but I don't feel better self esteem.
i remember when a crush called me cute once and straight away i thought it was cute but once it got me thinking... maybe it would have been better to be called hot! is cute = i want to have sex? na its not! cute is a teddy or a little brother lol.
I think many girls are not brave enough to randomly call someone hot. Cute is the safer option but it still means you're good looking
yeah that is true, i also think that when a girl uses the word cute its also their way of saying hot
It's not a trait I see, I'd prefer something more specific or something about my mind. That said, if its meaning is properly implied with inflection or through non-verbal communication, then it's great to hear as well.
Towards me, hell no!.But i say it to guys all the time... well or hot. I dont see handsome appropriate unless they are dressed up and wearing a suit.
guys rarely get complimented for our looks , so when we are it lasts. a month ago i was told i have the face of a movie star and im still riding the confidence boos from it
I wish a girl would tell me that. Though not in front of other people I might panic a bit. It's not common a girl shows interest or flirts with me.
Better than nothing, but it's not the best one. Makes me feel like a kid, or that she's saying it to be nice. Definitely not sexually attractive.
Yes, I’ve been called it a few times over the years, and it’s never failed to put a smile on my face so far ☺️☺️☺️
i said last night that you're cute😉😊cos you're cute😊😘
@celin98 You and me both 😏☺️💋
I'm not a fan of getting called it but it doesn't really fit with me I tend to think of cute as someone or something small and I'm a big guy height and weight
If it is a serious compliment, I feel greatly admired.
Who doesn't like to be complimented? As long as it's sincere.But now-a-days, in the work place, you have to be very careful even with compliments.
Girls never say that to my face. I've heard it behind my back and those other guys telling me about it
I've always assumed cute meant attractive, but not in a sexual way. Something an older woman would say to an attractive boy. At least when not used condescendingly.It's a bummer hearing it from a woman you're sexually attracted to. Justin Bieber is cute. Jean-Claude Van Damme is not cute.
I'd still call jean claude cute if he did something nice for me or others or has a dimple when he smiles. Any person could be cute. I use it in a sexual and non sexual way.
Its the compliment I receive the most. Its more to do with my personality I think
About the same as most women feel about it. Depends how it's said/meaning. Cute like her pet? Or sexy/hot cute?
Sure. But I dont know how to say it in Dutch, how is it said in German?
Du bist süß 😊
Okay. I will remember that. :)
When a woman says "youre cute" you can forget moving any further from the friend zone.
If I ever was called that by a girl, I would like it a lot. I don’t get compliments, though...
only from girls my age, it feels uncomfortable hearing it come from women old enough to be my mom.
I hope so. I call my boyfriend cute a million times a day but that's cause he is.
Nothing good came out of that situation for me.
Most guys like any compliment because they are very rare usually.
It can be really ambiguous, but to fix that all you have to do is pay attention to how they say it, how often they say it, and how they look at you when they say it.
I've been called "handsome" by some guys, does that count?
That is a compliment always sounds like they take pitty on me when they say it.
it sounds a little condescending and the women who say that are usually a little bitchy
I would prefer dapper, neat, handsome, fresh clean, fly, & a snack any day over cute but a compliment is a compliment. so return one if you feel it in you or just thank em' I guess
I’d prefer other compliments. “Cute” is too ambiguous.
Compliments are supposed to be well meaning comments and excepted in a positive way. When a girl compliments me it makes my day.
Fuck no it's an insult , she is doesn't want to hurt your feeling so she says this word Also do men look like puppies to them , we are men we are supposed to be wolves and tigers
Yeah you actually kinda do look like puppies to us 😂
Any compliment towards me is a win. Hell yeah
No one has ever called me cute. I’d hate that
as a proud babyface, yes I do lmao
I suppose it's better than nothing 🤷
No. I take it as an insult.
Yea don't have a problem with that
Why not? It's a positive trait.
Depends on the person but usually yeah
Certainly, yes, even tho I've heard it only once.
It's another way of saying he's unattractive
Guys grab whatever compliment they can get. Lol
Any compliment from a woman is usually welcome.
