I’ve always wondered about this. For a guy and someone they’re trying to have a relationship with or dating, is there a difference between calling the girl cute, pretty, hot, gorgeous, or sexy? I’ve always wondered about how guys see this. Before he was my boyfriend and even as my boyfriend, something that he said has always bothered me but I never really told him how I felt. He had always called me just cute. “You’re so cute.” “You’re the cutest.” Now, it’s nice he thinks I’m cute, but I’d like him to think I’m beautiful. Cute just seems like he’s describing a puppy or kitten and doesn’t make me feel very secure. He’s never called me pretty or beautiful, but then tell me why he has no problem saying in front of me and his friends that his ex girlfriend is beautiful, so what’s
his deal? He’s the only one that calls me cute. All other guys who want to be with me have no problem telling me that I’m pretty, gorgeous, hot or sexy. Never cute.
What does all this mean for a guy???
Being referred to as “cute” is not necessarily a bad thing and I think you’re just not happy that he hasn’t called you anything else besides cute. It sounds like you’re over conscious about the word and it’s making you notice it even more than normal.
Also, let me ask you this; do you really think you’re gorgeous, hot or sexy? C’mon be honest. On a scale of 1-10, where do you land? Are you a 10 or maybe a 5?
If you’re not a 10 but rather on the opposite side of the scale then it’s perfectly normal that he doesn’t say you’re HOT. He would be lying if he did. Of course I don’t know what you look like but I think you can answer those questions to yourself and find the answer.
On the other hand if you are a 10 and he’s still not referring to you as hot then I suggest you read a previous article I wrote on this subject, What do men’s compliments really mean?
However, my advice to you is to give it a rest. If your relationship appears to be going good and the only problem is the fact that he only calls you cute, then you have nothing to worry about. Be happy that you have a good relationship and get over it. You’re over reacting.
