I'm kind of complimented by random girls as beautiful. For me it's a huge compliment. But basically I've seen most guys think it as something feminine.

I won't lie the first time I heard my friend call a guy beautiful I found it an odd choice of word.
But now I find myself saying it when I do see someone beautiful.
So I guess it depends on how the girls say it.
Some says it in a way that does sound girly and just throwing a word without really caring much for the meaning.0

We often translate it as "You"re enjoyable to look at but I'd never have sex with you". Same with being called cute.
Most guys prefer being called hot because it is more likely to imply sexual interest. However anything is better than ugly I suppose.0
