Most Helpful Girl
I use them all interchangeably. My boyfriend hates it when I call him cute, but I really do it because he's done something sweet. I'm not trying to put him down, I'm just trying to compliment him on how he is being really sweet :)
But I use cute, hot and handsome interchangeably. Cute can, for me, have two meanings. The sweet one and then because I find him attractive.
