The word "cute" and what girls mean by it

This is a question for the females on the board.

 

Generally speaking, what are you implying when you say a "blank" is cute with reference to your boyfriend? The blank could be anything, such as you look cute or those pants or that shirt looks cute on you, or your haircut is cute.

 

I think most guys would agree with me when I say that there is a fine line when being referred to as cute.

I've had this conversation with a guy who took offense to it, like I'm sensing you are OP? It's not something I overuse, but on rare occasions there's just no better word. If forced to disect it I'd have to agree with Asti..

When I say cute in reference to him or something about him..it usually conveys an 'innocent' sweet, boyish type look or personality about him. When I see it/him it makes me go Awww.

 

However, as others have said, it is essentially meant in a good way and not intended to patronise.
