when I call a guy "cute" it can mean lots of things that I just feel weird saying.
it can mean he's sexy, that he's funny, acting immature (like a little boy) but still in kind of endearing way), a way of saying I like him, but depending on the tone of voice it can mean he's irritating me, or that I can't think of a better lie if he's asked me directly what I think of him and I'm not into him.
For some reason I get described as cute quite a bit and not only by by girlfriend, it really is a mystery.
wow i never thought this was going to turn into 4 pages lol.
So the conclusion is that girls use it in a good way but guys interpret it as a bad thing when called cute....
Cute is a compliment, i always get called "pretty" and i am male! I have no idea why but it happens quite often.
My gf just sent me a text callin me cutie. Im getting scared!
