Is cute really a complement?

I've been called way worse sure, and being called cute does give me the warm and fuzzys sometimes but I'm a little worried about it to.
I'm not convinced a girl calling me cute is the kind of response i should strive for, do you girls really like and want cute?

Just worried cut might mean something like adorable, innocent, childish or even the wrong kind of harmless.
Girls call puppy's and tiny little old men cute, so I'm sure it's exactly great.

I showed my female friend my opening message to a girl I just fried to talk to and she said "its cute", I was aiming for funny smooth talker, or it was kind of a corny pick up line so it being interpreted as "cute" kind of bums me out.
