Girls, what is the difference between 'cute' & 'handsome'?

I wanted to know what is the difference between the word 'cute' & 'handsome' uttered by girls to compliment guys. If a girls refers a boy to be so cute and another boy to be very handsome, is there any difference at all? Girls, can you explain me the nature of those two compliments?

  • Cute means I feel affection for you. It includes your personality, your smile, everything about you. I enjoy your company. I feel a connection with you.

    Handsome/hot means you turn me on. At the very most, it means you do not have a TERRIBLE personality, but not necessarily a good one (all it means is that your personality is not bad enough to be a turn-off).

    Handsome is straightforward looks. Cute is what you're aiming for!

  • I heard that guys hate to be called (cute) and they say this words should be for girls, but we can't help it! kkkkk

    For me, handsome means he's good looking, has a prince charm...etc!

    when I say this guy is cute.. I mean he's handsome but he looks innocent and bright like the kids at the same time! XD

    • And of course any compliment from a beautiful girl is awesome ;)

    • I hate being called cute I rather be called handsome any day :)

  • i think its different to anyone. but to me cute means that guy is a nice and doing nice things to me...and he might has a cute face too.

    but handsome is just a masculine guy who I really attract to his face and maybe his body, but it doesn't mean I would be attracted to his actions!

    BUT

    Handsome ( is like when I am sooooooo attrcted to a guy , his looks , his face , body , mind charm and appeal that I just can't help myself but get turned on when I see him , that's when I say " he's handsome ")

    :D

    but that could just be me

  • Thanks for always answering my questions.You rarely ask new questions so let me answer this for you to show my appreciation :-D

    I shall customise this answer for you:

    The first picture of you on the left and holding the ball is cute because of the good boyish look.How old is that?Haha :-)

    Can't see the face of the second picture very clearly.

    The third and fourth picture of you in the blue V-necked tee are handsome and classy.Cute sounds girlish when used here :P

    • :D Nothing wrong with being you, Miss Solitude! I'm a tortoise, that's for sure :-D

  • to me handsome is just a weird term to use on a guy that is in his 20s I'm not sure about older because I'm 21 so I try and look for guys near my age...i don't use hot that much unless I'm in the mood to use the word hot I usually use cute because I mean what if he were to hear? id be embarrassed if I called him hot...not so much if I called him cute I don't know that's just what I think haha

  • Both mean your equally attractive. Handsome is not really used anymore but I would call a guy handsome when he's too old and manly to be referred to as cute and I when I wantto use the word hot because I honestly hate calling someone that it makes them sound like they are a piece if meat as a friend of mine put it. But no there's really no difference.

  • Cute means you're playful, fun and a pleasure to be around.

    Handsome means you're studly, confident, coy and alluring.

    Both are a synonym for attractive.

  • at least when it comes to me, handsome is purely about looks while cute is a lot more about personality.

  • Handsome is a stronger word than cute. Lots of guys are cute, but if I say you're handsome it means I'm really impressed.

  • Hmm girls think I'm cute... I have boyish good looks and an innocent demeanor. That's different than a handsome guy who has like.. those macho good looks with a more cool demeanor.. Come to think of it... these things don't make sense to me either >.<

  • Interesting ladies. I always thought handsome was a meaningless compliment, like 'nice', something your mum would call you. Turns out that I'd really been driving women wild, unbeknownst to me.
