    I know most guys don't like being called cute because they see it as being iun the dreaded friend zone

    but if a guy calls a girl cute is it the same thing? or is it a good thing to be cute as a girl?

    what does it mean?!

    cute can be used as;

    aww you're so cute (but I wouldn't bone you)
    you're cute (cos cute replaces ugly)
    you're cute :sexface: (I want to violate your innocence)

    I loathe being called "cute". I think it's because I'm small, I know that when people call me cute it's like an "aww, you're so small" cute rather than a "you're really attractive" cute. I find it quite patronising!

    But I think there are lots of ways to interpret it. Some use it to say that you're physically attractive, others say it because they'd like to pinch your cheeks. Depends on the person, really.

    I love being called 'cute'

    I prefer 'beautiful' though.

    But when someone say 'you are cute' , it means like 'i adore you' ...

    I dont think there is anything wrong with calling a guy or a girl cute tbh.

    I think if I called a girl cute its because I think shes attractive but she's also small/petit, but that just me.


    I get called it a bit but I think its because i'm a small guy, but who knows :sexface:

    I call my boyfriend cute all the time, because he is. Kinda pick-up-and-squeeze cute, but also hot cute. I hope he's not offended by it, I wasn't aware that it indicated friendzoning or whatever :')

    I get called cute often because of my size, I'm small. Are you short?
    Anyway just take it as a compliment, although it can be quite patronising sometimes.

    I was wondering this too. It sounds like a typical pointless H&R problem, I know, but a guy I know and have a bit of a thing for told me I was 'adorable', so I don't know what he means by that.
    The thing with the word cute is it can mean so many different things!

    For some reason it says I'm the thread starter, I'm not. Just the anon function messing up!

    I've never been called cute :sad:
    Probably because I'm pretty tall...
    I imagine it's a good thing though.

    That's cute = good
    You're cute = Bad

    That's for boys though, but imp when I call a girl cute it just means she's annoying and won't leave me alone but I can't say that coz she's cute lol

    It probably depends on the circumstances. The bloke I'm seeing says that I'm adorably cute because my cheeks go hot and I get coy when he compliments me. I honestly don't get any other way I could be described as cute. I'm really tall and built! Mind you - He's taller.

    Meh. People have their won reasons for everything.

    Yeah I guess it is circumstance based but just wanted to know the general use and a little insight into the male mind haha.

    I don't mind being called cute myself, if it's from the right person...


    as for height im average!
