Most Helpful Guy
When guys talk to each other we rarely use the term cute. If we do say "cute" when talking about a girl with a bro, it means we really like her personality but her body is just barely attractive enough for sexy sex. We do however use the term "cute" when talking to the girls we like, because it's not as threatening as, "I want to f*** you 6 ways from Sunday." In some rare cases guys do use the term "cute" in the sense that the girl looks especially innocent like a little girl or puppy.
If you don't like the compliment "cute", just respond, "F*** cute, I want to be sexy!"
