When you tell someone he's pretty darn cute, how often do you really mean it?

    "You're pretty darn cute." There are times when you mean it and there are times when you don't. Do you say something different when you don't really mean that he's good looking?

    I should've started, so here goes.... I usually say "you're good looking" or "you look good" or "you're dreamy" if they are attractive. If I don't want to offend them, I say 'you're cute" or "you're adorable."

    I can tell when someone is good looking, though that doesn't mean I'm personally attracted to them.

    I never say it just to be polite. I say it because I really mean it and I want them to know I'm interested.

    Why say anything if you're so worried about offending someone? Why lie? It's quite patronizing and THAT is offensive in it's own right. It's this kind of attitude that ruins being called "cute".

    I might compliment someone's picture on here but I'd be really unlikely to tell a stranger I think they're attractive. If It's someone I know I might say "you look good" or "you look nice" but only if I actually think so, because they are dressed up etc. I tend to avoid that whole subject whenever possible.

    I find this to be a bit odd, really. Why would you "compliment" someone with a lie? Did this person ask you what you thought of them, so you felt the need to lie to them, or did you just blunt it out to be nice? If it was the former, then I guess I could understand the need to lie, but, the latter, I am dumbfounded as to why you would just tell someone they are cute and don't really mean it.

    I've never been in this type of situation, but I find it odd that you would just go around telling guys you think they are cute when you really don't. What do you possibly get from doing it - free drinks?

    Some people use it as a way to be "polite".
    Like, if a guy messages you but you aren't interested, you could say "i'm sorry, you're cute, but you're not really my type."

    I'm not saying that I do this, but people do it to turn a guy down "nicely".

    I reserve use of the word cute for puppies, babies, guys younger than 24 years, and guys 5' 6" and shorter.

    I always mean it and I think "cute" is a specific look that I like a lot. So I'm sorry the word is being degraded. I hate that some guys I've called "cute" might have thought it was a rejection.

    Always mean it, but if I'm genuinely interested in dating or meeting I will usually tell them or ask. Very simple.

    LOL no, why would you lie about something like that. if they are not cute, hot, or whatever than I will not say it. if i am not attracted to them than i will tell them that they are not my type.
