Sup friends, I noticed that guys love saying the word "cute" to girls. Why is that? I mean, cute as in what? Babies are cute. Puppies are cute? What the hell do you all mean, for real now! Why can't you say " hey, you're f-ing hot" or even "you're alright" but "cute" don't cut it. What do you mean? Guys, help me out here!! I need to know!

I'm assuming your still a teenager. I've heard guys use the words pretty or hot around me, they don't normally use the word cute. However, girls use cute a lot, my girlfriends use the word cute when they talk about guys and they're in their late 20's to early 30's. But it really depends on the guys you meet, cute is a way for some guys to tell a girl that she is pretty without sounding too eager. When a guy calls you cute, take it as a compliment. ;)

Hi,
You seem to be really sensitive to the word "cute". Why are you letting it affect you this way.
The word, when used with puppies, means love, beautiful, want to hold you, and anything else you personally would like to read into it.
If "cute" doesn't cut it with you, then meet some new boys, be yourself, treat them with respect, and look for someone who doesn't use that word.
Personally, I wouldn't be offended at anyone for calling me cute. But, then again, I am 63 yrs old, and look at things differently. I do wish you well, and hope you can work all this out.

Actually my wife says that about me sometimes and I am like what do you mean by that? I say that to her sometimes too. It means to me, adorable, pretty and that it is a very good comment and it is meant as a loving gesture. That is for me anyway.

depends MY OPINION is that you and GREATINBED were raised a little differently than people who know how to watch their language. I was born and raised in the military and I know and even forgot all the words that you still have to think about - believe me you're not making up any new ones.. but I choose not to use them because I have more respect for myself than you do for yourselves. When someone does or says something cute it's a compliment, and also when one appears cute it's still a compliment and respectful, and no 'f' words are needed to communicate, unless it's behind closed doors with consenting adults. I hope you will realize that when you have your own children some day, before they come up with stuff that knock your socks off.

OK, in normal adult proper society no we don't tell someone they are hot.
Guys in the backroom of the mailroom or in the bar may talk about girls like that but unless a guy is dating and knows the girl, NO, you are hot is not correct and proper talk.

To many "cute" is and should be a wonderful thing. Cute if a nice looking girl, that may have some "little girl" qualities. Which is actually a real turn on issue for a lot of guys.

Cute is not "your hot how long will it take you to get your pants down" but then it is not " how are you talking you should bark"

Honestly if cute is not a great word to hear from guys, you have been hanging around the wrong people, it is a good word.

First I am in high school out here in cali so I feel like I can really break this down for you or at least my point of view which is the only thing someone really has. Anyway, in high school most guys have a small vocabulary, one of the main reasons that funny senctences get played out, also the main reason we use cute is that we don't want to offend the girl. See when guys talk to girls they don't want to seem like a dog and say vulgar things. So, in an attempt for you to actually want to talk to us again, we like to compliment the crap out of you, which leads us to use the word cute, which can be used in many manners even without talking to the opposite sex, such as, and excuse me for the run-on sentences it's just something I do at 2 am, if someone does something clumsy you say "Hey that was cute", or if a girl/guy happens to just strike you as attractive you say cute when they give you a pretty smile or something in that manner. All in all, they don't mean to say cute a lot they just want to be in the persons good graces, so don't hate, appreciate.

With a web name like that what does it matter what they call you. I would think that being referred to as cute would be beter than everyone referring to me as great in bed
You state you would like to be talked to "F*ing hot. To me that is all sexual. Someone appreciates you for who you are and not what is between your legs sounds better to me.
It is a shame I think that this is all the more that you think of yourself.
I would not want a man to be seen talking to me this way in public. I think it shows disrespect to a woman. I would not want anyone to see me being disrespected in such a way in public.
But it is your life, you run it how you see fit. But if you have no respect for yourself don't expect others to see you as worthy. Peace ranieri

Well I am always called a "cutie", and yes I take that as a BIG compliment. I also no I am THE bomb. I'm just awesome.:cool:

AND if you're offended by that, or question why they don't say something rather, maybe you aren't totally confident with you're appearance.

Guys have told me both "cute" and "hot" both are a compliment to me. I use to think why would a guy say "cute" and not pretty, but then a friend of mine told me that her boyfriend uses cute with her and he said that its her facial expressions or the way she laughs that he finds cute. And my friend is absolutely beautiful. A guy ounce said to me "you have such a beautiful smile and a hot body, your such a cute girl" now he used all three phrases in one sentence. I didn't take the cute part to mean less than beautiful. He obviously found me very attractive so it didn't bother me.
Like with my best friend I think cute is to describe a physical quality that is playful like a look you give or a smile. Believe me its not a bad thing. It may even be the "it" phrase now to describe a pretty girl, esecially if your hearing it a lot now.

Hmm.. Personally, I think that the words 'cute' and 'hot' are two totally different things (I'm agreeing with Fr Chuck, but ill explain the idea in a different way). I'm going to be very blunt by the way (I'm a guy, so this is from a guys perspective).

Hot Girl: An example of a hot girl would be paris hilton.As soon as a guy sees this kind of girl he immediately wants to 'bang' her (its a natural thing, we cant stop it.. sorry). Usually this kind of girl will get his attention instantly, as soon as he lays eyes on her. If the guy and the hot girl do go out, then the guy will have no problem treating her like trash and won't really care about her feelings (he will only care about her feelings to benefit himself, if the girl suddenly is starting to not like him). If the guy buys her a gift, he's just doing it for more (or better) sex from her after. Also when the guy and the hot girl do have sex, the guy will tend to do it from behind (if you know what I mean) rather than the more 'PC' way.

Cute Girl: An example of a cute girl would be jamie lynn spears (britney spear's sister). This type of girl will take a little longer to like. Usually when you see a cute girl you don't get that instant 'like' feeling, you usually have to wait till she starts speaking, or smiling or perhaps when you look straight into her cute eyes. When a guy goes out with a cute girl, he really cares about her feelings (sex isn't involved), usually will see a nice future with her and will only occasionally think about sex (and if he does, he'll be thinking of doing it from the front, the 'PC' way). If anyone insults his cute girlfriend, he will be about 10-20 times more affended than if the person insulted him instead. Oh and in the bedroom, the guy would usually rather grab her face instead of her boobs/other areas (lol). He'll also love to cuddle a lot (thats what I love to do). If the guy gets gifts for the cute girl, its only to see the smile on her face and to make her happy (nothing sexually attached).

So yeah I guess I'm quite biased, its quite obvious that I prefer cute girls than hot. But at least you know what a guy REALLY means when he calls you cute or hot.

Most of my past girlfriends are the 'cute' type, its my preference since you can be so so so so open to them, etc. Although I'm 17, I also like acting 'babyish' with my GF (she does the same) and its so cute/adorable. I'd say that a cute girl is a mix of the pretty/hotgirl feeling and the feeling of having a baby in your arms lol. Also when my cute girlfirend (dont have a girlfriend now though) gives me 'sexual pleasure'.. well yeah it feels good but I also get this slight feeling of guilt when she does it (dunno why.. but I guess it brings to good out of me).

Currently I need to find out what girls mean when they say cute...

Just my two cents here...
Cute is someone you wouldn't mind taking home to meet your mom
Hot is someone you would rather take to a hotel room for the night.
Beautiful is someone you think is out of your league

At least that's how I always have seen it. If a guy we're to tell me I'm hot I don't really give him the time of day. I figure if he uses that word he only wants to get me in bed. If a guy uses cute then it means I've intrigued him in some way and he's willing to invest the time to get to know the person I am. Like I said just my opinion and a bit of experience tossed in..

Didn't realise this post was so old... but I stand by my definition

Cutes a lovely word :) Hot is kind of SEXEH, cute is more beautiful.

Deppends how you would like to be viewed, "greatinbed" is obviously a sexeh person, who likes to be viewed hot and kinky. I bet I'm right.

However, I agree with the person above, it's a bit... shallow to refer to someone as "hot" or "f***ing hot". Im sure you don't want guys just looking at your tits, because I'm possitive you have a personality, that you want to be centre stage. As it should be.

Or when you look like you've swallowed a giant beach ball and have all the things that go along with pregnancy and feel like a beached whale and he still tells you your beautiful and that he loves you... Now that's a man...

That is a man because I've had three beautiful babies and my man never told me those things. Hence-he is no longer my man (not because of that though ;)

"Cute" is a GREAT word to describe a girl that you like. I use it a lot. Its like your copmplimenting her but, in a way (and this is the golden part), its busting on her a little. Its like a playful tease... if done correctly, girls EAT IT UP! :cool:

I call a girl cute when she has a face that's fun, happy, and has features that make my stomach feel light.

I've wondered about this myself before, but I definitely would not take offense to it. I guess the reason I once wondered about the term is usually my friends both male and female call me cute whereas when I'm called hot it's usually by some loser at a bar or being yelled at me out of a car. This has perplexed me when a man that is trying to "get with" me calls me cute does he mean I am less attractive than a hot girl. Personally I know that when I get compliments from my friends they are generally more sincere whereas the alternate is usually from a guy that just wants to get into my pants. I have also been called beautiful, sexy and cute all in one conversation with one guy so I guess to him they could all mean the same things. Just don't over analyze because that would definitely turn any man off.
