    So whenever I hear someone call something cute its always about like kittens, puppies, etc., but whenever someone calls someone else on here "cute" I never know how to react.

    I get that its supposed to be a compliment, but still like does anyone else think its kinda like... ehhhhh... or is it just me =P

    Good? Bad? Thoughts? Witty banter?

    I guess that's why the thanks from you after I said you were cute was a little awkward. I could tell reading it that it was awkward for you. Sorry but you are avery good looking guy with one of the best smiles on RJ :-)

    I sometimes feel like its used as a "nice" way of acknowledging that someone is attractive but at the same time saying that you're not attracted to them. If I tell someone they're cute it means that I think you're adorably attractive and that I'm attracted to you, at least physically-speaking.

    To me, being "cute" is being attractive while not also being handsome. There is a difference. icon_wink.gif

    What do you see?


    There's one member here who seems to hate being called "cute." IIRC, he gets upset with guys who use that word to describe him.


    And why did this get moved to Dating & Relationships? icon_confused.gif

    I agree with ^

    The guy I'm dating doesn't like it when I call him cute because he prefers sexy or hot... haha... but for me, it's already implied when I use cute on him.

    If you look youthful, then you're probably going to get "cute" more often than "hot." I would take it as a compliment and not try to change who you are for praise.

    Also, it depends on the person. I don't agree w/ some of the previous comments. I go for sexy and hot, but also cute. It's just a different look but it's definitely not bad.

    When I tell someone they are cute, I mean it and think they are very attractive. icon_wink.gif

    It's your main picture. You're not looking in to the camera with bedroom eyes, you have an adorable quirky smile that makes people want to know you, and is very attractive, but not "sexy". You are sexy, but that picture definitely prompts an awwww! *cuddle* rather than, damn i wanna f---- that. Your second two pictures are sexy, which is why the comments all say hot, not cute.
    That you are both cute: Aww look at that smile, he seems so sweet!
    And sexy:Holy crap look at those abs! They make me wanna....
    Is the best of both worlds.

    Haha I guess to RJ staff this is dating/relationships... But I mean just between you guys you all use it so differently! So many interpretations lol icon_wink.gif I think it might be because I would use cute and like hot and sexy in different situations while some use them to mean similar stuff

    Exactly, it can mean something different to different people. Just like those "OMG! This guy is so hawt!" threads in which a bunch of guys come in and say the guy isn't hot.

    Being called cute makes me irrationally pissed off. Even with my crew cut and not so friendly face, I still get called cute.

    Maybe "cute" gets interpreted as childlike and therefore less of a "real man". I like getting called that though. To me it means attractive, youthful, positive energy etc icon_smile.gif

    You expect extended family members etc to call you cute.

    You want men you desire to say your fucking hot.

    There's nothing sexual about the word 'cute' . It lacks passion.
