Most Helpful Girl
Yes because cute can also mean a cute personality, somebody sweet who smiles and laughs a lot and is fun to joke around with. When guys call a girl cute that is generally what they mean.
For example, I am friendly with an older man at work and we aren't dating but we do flirt. One day we were joking around and he was cracking little innuendos and it was funny and so he made me laugh out loud and giggle (which I don't do so often) and I was smiling a lot so he kept saying "Aw you are so cute!" But this wasn't the first time we met and since the first time we met he tells me I look and act much more mature than anyone else my age he has met. (I was flattered) So cute does not always mean childlike.
