What is the difference between cute and handsome?

what do you actually mean when you say cute, good looking, handsome, hot?
what makes you say only that specific term?
is there a way to change the term (like from cute to handsome)?

  • I'll do a celeb comparison.
    Jimmy Fallon, Adam Devine cute
    Zac efron, Ryan gosling, David Beckham hot
    hemsworth brothers, Colin Farrel good looking
    Army Hammer, tom Hiddleston handsome

    They ALL are attractive. For me it's about approachability. Cute guys are in my league and down to earth, possibly boyfriend material--I'd walk up to them in a bar. Hot guys are out of my league and I wouldn't even try to talk to them, just look and hope they don't see me. Good looking are the ones that that don't have any one great feature and overall look almost hot. I'd be nervous to approach a good looking guy. And then there's handsome- I see them and say that's my futuee husband. They have it all. Down to earth vibe, but they look so good it hurts. Charismatic. They are very approachable because they're looks aren't like sex symbol hotness and they feel less intemidating. They look like they could have kids but still look really really good.

    If I went on a casual date with a cute guy and for another date he wore a suit and got cleaned up I'd tell him he was handsome.

  • I personally use the term interchangeably, just to describe any guy who I think is attractive. A man might go from cute to handsome if he's dressed nicely, if he's well-groomed and if he's older. I wouldn't call any guy who looks older than 35 cute but rather handsome if he's good-looking.

  • Cute = puppy/little brother kind, handsome = I'd date you, hot = I'd have sex with you, if you wanna change cute into handsome, make yourself look less adorable

    • It seems that women only have sex with hot guys, and date handsome guys? That's tough

    And cute is sweet

  • Cute - sweet, depending on the guy it can mean brotherly. I use it sometimes with my boyfriend, especially when he says something dorky.
    Good looking - it means just that, good looking. Attractive, pleasant to look at.
    Handsome - Incredibly attractive and mostly used when I'm feeling rather lovey.
    Hot - Well, come on now. You know what this means.

    I don't think there's anything you can do to change it from cute to handsome. Change your wardrobe, get a popular haircut that fits your face, grow some facial hair out, get fit. But, really, both cute and handsome are compliments!

  • I like cute boys. There's a boyish fun quality about them. Hot is temporary. Handsome seems cheesy.

  • Handsome is more masculine, while cute is more boyish but both can be compliments.

  • Cute from is like I'm crushing on you, or you have a gentle side or I think you're funny. Comparing you to a soft bunny rabbit when it wiggles its nose. Handsome is you look like Ryan Gosling in my eyes, I'm your mom and I am validating my good genes I passed down to you that make you look good in a tie and finally a genuine compliment from any female friend or interest thats acknowledging you are attractive and your effort is noticed. 😊
