When a guy calls you cute, meaning?

What does it mean when a guy calls you cute? I've heard some people say that cute means that you aren't pretty or something :( ...guys what does this mean when you say "cute"? Do you mean she is pretty or something or uglier?

Several times before he has called me "cute". He has called me cute after seeing some of my pictures, or I will tell him about my cooking fails and he tells me that i am the cutest thing...

We are pretty good friends, maybe will trade flirtatious comments every now and then, but we are pretty chill. But whenever he calls me cute it sorta throws me off. Is calling someone 'cute' a friend zone? Or does it mean he thinks Im attractive? Or do I have it all wrong?

I never really thought of myself as a cute human being... I am 5 ft 8 and he is 6ft 3 (I only say this because when I think of a cute girl, I picture her short) and I have a curvy/athletic build.

I am probably overthinking, but what does this mean?
