CUTE. The kiss of death.


Why is it that men refer to women as "CUTE", from my viewpoint thats like the kiss of death. Bunnies are cute, babies are cute, puppies and kittens are cute, but when you call a woman cute, oh man!!!!
So, I'm open to hear what men really think about a female they consider "cute". A male friend told me that when men say your "cute" thats a safe way of saying your pretty but not putting themselves out there too much. Is this true?

I tend to think cute carries the same meaning(s). No matter what
gender expresses it to another.

Like you, I don't use "cute" to describe a woman... when I see an attractive woman, I just tell it like it is... BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS, DELIGHTFUL, STIMULATING, BREATH-TAKING... there's a few more I use but I can't think of them now off the top of my head!

I dont often refer to women as cute. Maybe younger women, teenagers may be 'cute' but they grow up to be something else. Cute i think is usually reserved for guys.

I fall under the "scary" category when I wake up in the morning, it takes me awhile to put my presentable face together.
I wanna be one of those soap opera girls that wakes up after a night of incredible sex and not a hair is outta place.

Grrrrr... One of the great misunderstandings...

Alright - (Personally!) I use cute as in saying, "Damn you are cute". "Damn you are attractive". "Damn I think you are hot". All mean the same thing to me (Well, I take that back - 'Hot' I guess is a more intense expression.) Yes, bunnies are cute.Puppies and kittens are cute. Babies... Well they look like grubs. I say they are cute just because I am supposed to.

But, I get slammed all the time for saying a woman is cute. Maybe I just say it because it's easier to say than "My god I want to drop you where you stand and touch you all over"; Y'know - fewer syllables... More socially acceptable.... (Tastes great, less filling...)

*Note to self: If and when meeting Heaven, DO NOT refer to her as cute. And note to Heaven: If referred to as cute by Xeryien, smile, nod and think "Damn, he finds me attractive!" Deal?

LMFAO Xery;

You had me rolling with that one, and the side note is accepted, and mutually agreed upon.

OK, Heaven, I'm going to let you in on the secret. I just want you to know before hand, that this may very well cost me dearly, my very life may even be in danger. Passing guy secrets to the opposite sex,
well, it ain't going to be pretty. So I hope you appreciate my sacrifice.

"cute" is not a safe word. Not for the guy. Because cute implies that he thinks you're pretty, but he's on tentative ground and doesn't want to blow any future relationship by going for a possibly over the top compliment. It also implies that he has much more than a passing interest in you. He likes you. He's
actually talked to you, and the initial impression is you're the complete package. He wants to get to know you better. You've touched his soft side, where all the warm and fuzzy feelings dwell.

So, if you're a woman and talking to guy, and he trots out the "cute" word, your antenna should immediately go up. You've got a potential live one here. Of course, all that could change later as you get better acquainted. But that's usually the initial reaction. You hit it off, he will be calling you beautiful and gorgeous later.

So there you have it. The complete and unvarnished truth. I certainly hope other visitors to your blog will wholeheartedly concur with me. 'Cause I don't think I could spread it around that thick again.

President and Founder of the "He-man Woman Hater Club of America"
is not a title to be bantered about willy nilly. "I started off just hating one, but now I hate them all and you can too, for just the ridiculously low price of just $9.95! But that's only if you order before midnight tonight! Then our price drops to $3.99!" Still can't figure out why it didn't catch on.

Hiya Heaven
Long time no type. Thought I would chime in on this one. Cute is far better then some of the names I have been called. Anyway I feel for ya over what I read in your previous posts. Tis the reason I have exciled myself to blogland and pretty much stay to myself and meet people who truly stimulate my intellect and other regions. Stop over some time and drop a line or two.

ok fine. Cute is not a horrible term for women. its WAY better than "shes ok" or no comment at all.
Most guys arent so tactless to say "wow thats scary!", at least not anywhere near her.

If i ever referred to a woman as cute it was likely more about a specific part..a cute little nose or something but like i said. I dont use 'cute' to describe women

for the record, just look out for 'shes got a great personality!' LOL

OH MY GOD... that's my problem. I told her she was "CUTE". That's where the kiss of death came from. I'll know from now on NEVER to use it like that again.

LOL 1sir, yep, thats where you went wrong, calling me CUTE.
At kleast you didn't say "you have a great personality" or maybe you did..... hmmmmm. may have to go back and reread EVERY response you ever made to me.
