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.

What on earth makes a guy "cute"? I am known for being quite cheeky to people, as well as being quite sarcastic. But I don't really see how my behaviour is "cute". Like I got called cute, and I just hid my face because it felt so embarassing.

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.

YW.

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

Yeah see hiding your face would also be considered 'cute'. Being funny is also cute. It's really not a bad word.

I'm really not explaining this very well but for example on looks alone Chris Pratt is cute. Chris Hemsworth is hot. (even that's not the best example).
Maybe it's the nose/face shape?

Usually it's only when you get to know a guy better that they can be both.

I'm female so I can't even grow a beard lol I'm banking on still looking young as I get older so I'll be 40 looking in my early 30s or even late 20s.

It's worst being a young looking male than a young looking female imo. One of the main reasons is because women like an older guy or a guy the same age so you end up getting rejected by most women your own age and are forced to go 10+ years younger most of the time.
I started a new temp job a few days ago ...and some people were asking me how much rent I pay ..and I said I don't pay any rent as I own my own place. They were surprised and one of them asked me how old I was. I said 33. They both started looking at me weirdly ...and one of them said "you're 33 years old??" ....then the other one says "you look 19/20" "you don't look a day over 20"

Later that day another guy [who wasn't there for the conversation] started complaining i was working too slow and said i should be able to work faster because i'm young. I asked him how old I was and he said 19/20, ...i said no, he then asked me my age ...and rather than give him the number and deal with the ineveitable freakout reaction ..i just said "much older..."

for what it's worth i think i look about 25, a fair amount of people will guess younger though.

I used to be ok with people saying i look young, ...but it's got to the point now where there is a such a big differance between my real age and percieved age that people often literally freak out and start looking at me strangly half the time, sometimes accusing me of lying .. so i don't like telling people my age much and will avoid it if i can..

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
