I'm a guy btw, I forgot to mention
I'm female, and my interpretation of a cute guy is a good looking one.

To me 'cute' is definitely someone that's good looking, and guys can have cute aspects to them but not be cute overall. But I would say cute and hot are two different categories of good-looking in my mind. Neither is better than the other though.
Cute in BrE means aww adorable. In AmE it means good looking.
Young 'uns today are so corrupted by our American cousins it could mean either.
Don't knock it, it probably means that quite a reasonable proportion of girls would want to shag you.
Think about it. They're not going to compliment you by saying you're hot, that's too full on. Cute could be a watered down version of complimenting your looks, or it could be in a non flirting way meaning you have a babyface and they think you're cute like they think a kid is cute. We can't read minds.
Try being called cute when you're in your mid 20s, it's unsufferable
Grow a beard or go to korea
and regarding the word "cute"
Last year I was walking along and some girls were walking along [looked about 13] and one of them was eyeing me up and said hi to me, smiled and waved, and i kinda awkwardly gave a polite smile back [not feeling too comfortable] ...and then one of the other girls says to the girl who spoke to me "cute.."
and i was not thrilled tbh, i'm far too old for that word.
It's rare that I hear it nowadays though, so that's something I guess
