So a question that is always asked to guys when they say a girl is “cute”, is what does it mean? That also extends to when a guy calls a girl, “beautiful”, “sexy”, etc. etc.
I’ll be honest with you, it doesn’t always mean something special. Most of the time, it really just means what they say. However, since you want to know more about it, let’s take a deeper analysis of these words and what weight they carry.
Let’s start with the first one, which would be “Cute”. The word itself means to be “attractive in a pretty or endearing way”. When used in the context of a girl, this is more about their physical appearance. Petite would be the main feature here, along with a small or meek personality. As they would be viewed as something that must be protected and such.
We then have “Sexy” which is more a focus on their voluptuous figure and appearance. This ties in more with one’s sexual attraction to another rather than anything else.
Lastly we have “Beautiful,” this one is more on physical attraction as well, but is tied to their stunning appearance. This is most commonly used when we are caught off-guard, when they have reached a high tier of beauty, we have nothing much to say other than that.
In the end, these are only from the perspective of myself. Not all guys have the same thought process when it comes to things like this and it could vary for each individual.
