What is "cute?" (According to me.)
I use the word “cute” sometimes when it comes to women. (I use “awesome” for everything else. Apparently I am a surfer… in the 80s.)
Some people throw “cute” around willy-nilly. “This shirt is cute.” “What a cute idea.” “Isn’t that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad cute?”
Not this hombre.
To me, there is no higher compliment than “cute.” Especially when it is “cuuuuuuuuuuuuute.”
When something is cute… it just makes you smile.
A cute woman can also be pretty and/or gorgeous. BUT a pretty and/or gorgeous woman is not necessarily cute. (For example, some of the bland cookie-cutter model types.)
Cute is also not necessarily stick thin or genetically flawless. It comes in various shapes and sizes. In fact, some of the cutest women have some character to their faces.
True cuteness is more than just looks though.
A sense of humour is cute.
Creativity is cute.
Being clever is cute.
Sweetness is, almost always, very cute.
Some cute things are very specific to the cuteness observer. For me… fake pouting.
I may be nuts.
I’ve heard a couple women say that they don’t like the word “cute.” (Note: I wasn’t calling them cute.) One said that she found it too patronizing. Another thought it was overused and meaningless.
I thought about that a little and then realized…
Meh. I don’t really care.
“Cute” is the only way of describing what I want to describe, you know?
Now, when a woman is that devastating combo of cute/hot… Then you have something.
And if she is cute/hot with a good heart…
Start the ring shopping.
Thus endeth the lesson.
Because I do all the talking around here, I have a couple questions for YOU:
1) What is one thing that members of the opposite sex do/say/think that you find impossibly cute?
2) Ladies, would you mind being called “cute?”
