…So he thinks you are cute, does that mean he considers you childish and doesn’t find you attractive or he is comparing you with a puppy! It’s so confusing.

Why can’t guys be more transparent while complimenting? Now how on earth, can we girls discover the true meaning of ‘cute’ or ‘beautiful’? Yes, we girls do get confused when guys compliment us like this.

If they call us beautiful, then we feel good, and accept it, but if they call us cute, then we get all worked up because we are not sure what that’s supposed to mean. Most of us love receiving compliments, but we sometimes struggle to understand what they actually mean.

When it comes to words spoken by members of the opposite sex, it can be doubly difficult to decipher the subtle messages being conveyed.

So what do Guys actually mean by the term ‘Beautiful’?

You went to this bush party, had a blast and came back. Next day, you receive a text from a guy stating that you are beautiful and he wants to take you out for a dinner date. You met this guy last night, so you don’t know much about him. His text has confused you even more. You don’t know whether he is asking you out casually or is he really interested in you. His text has perplexed you.

After spending time with you at the bush party, if the guy is calling you beautiful, then he really means it. By beautiful, he doesn’t only mean the physical beauty, instead he considers you beautiful inside out. He has just met you, so he is trying to avoid lame words like ‘pretty’. Beautiful, in itself, is an elegant word that can be used to describe the inner beauty too. He knows that he is texting you for the first time, so he is avoiding loose words like ‘sexy’. He realizes that this loose word might ruin his chance of getting a date night. Moreover, guys don’t use the word ‘beautiful’ for complimenting someone if he doesn’t feel that the girl truly is beautiful. So, if he calls you beautiful, then he really means it.

Now what if they call you ‘Cute’

He thinks you are sweet-nurtured. When guys call someone cute, some girls take it badly. They think it means you’re sweet and young whiles we may rather want to referred to as sexy and desirable instead.

Being called cute doesn’t mean that you’re not all those things as well!

Being cute means you are kind and lovely. It suggests a soft femininity rather than the childish aspect that a lot of us automatically assume it means.

So calling you, Cute is about so much more than looks. To be cute, one has to be physically attractive. But to be physically attractive is only part of the story. Cuteness encompasses physical attractiveness plus a pleasant, attractive personality. In the right context, it can be one of the highest compliments a guy can give a woman.

Of course, there are subtleties to all languages, and I concede that, if cornered, a guy might refer to a woman as cute as a safe description of her physical appearance. But if a guy calls you “the cutest” or just comes out and can’t contain his appreciation for how cute you are, or tells you that you’re cute just out of the blue, then it means he is really in to you for all of you. Your looks, personality, your strengths, your flaws, your everything.
