If a guy called you 'cute' would you like it and be flattered or not really take it as a compliment?

The 'cutest girl on TSR' thread shows how it's often used as a compliment, but in the past I've heard girls say they don't like it, thinking it likens them to a kid or a fluffy bunny.

So do you like being called cute or do you prefer pretty/sexy/hot etc?

To be called anything nice is good enough for me, as it hardly ever happens!

I like any affectionate term, but I know mates of mine who can't stand it. Guess it depends on how much of an ego the girl has.

Well, I like being called 'pretty'. But 'cute' is quite nice. It depends opon how the person says it though- if it's really patronising it won't really feel like a compliment - but if it's said nicely then, yes- I'd like it

Girls don't have egos, they have breasts, bad days and menopauses.

I quite like it. "Absolutely stunning" comes a close second, as compliments go.

So being called cute is the most flattering term in your eyes? And you only "quite" like it? :eek:

Oh I know, but if a girl tries to out-ego me (is that even... ) I just think she is having a bad day because they always fail miserably.

Things like this really make me ask what has this world come to?

Prefer pretty/sexy/hot, but usually if I get a compliment I ain't complaining.

My ex's compliments were so cringeworthy - like he would call me 'princess' and stuff, and just overcompliment me wayyyy too much. He was just wayyyy too nice to the point where it was fake and creepy.

I guess if it's a normal compliment (something along the lines of cute/hot/sexy/pretty) and I can tell they actually mean it, it's all good.

Excellent choice there sir. In regards to the question you have posed, I think 'cute' isn't the most flattering term you could use as it sort of implies that you find their behaviour/appearance endearing. If I wanted to irritate a friend -male or female- I'd say 'ohhhh you're so cuute'. Also, it's a real Americanism, eg 'what a cute too' haha. Maybe stick to the more conventional language of flirtation as you're obviously a little bit uncomfortable about using it.

I highly doubt that many 'girls' have the menopause, let alone multiple ones.
Perhaps PMT was what you meant. Ah,men :rolleyes: :p:

I like it. I don't get complimented often so when I do it's flattering :p: 'Cute' is the only compliment I've gotten, though.

Voted ***** shield as I thought it was a funny option.

Discount that result by one, as I'm not a girl :p:.
