If you’ve ever had a guy call you cute or pretty over text or on Instagram/TikTok, it can be both flattering and confusing.
On one hand, it’s nice to know that someone finds you attractive.
On the other, it can be hard to figure out what exactly he means by calling you cute and how you should respond.
Is it a simple compliment or does he have some feelings for you?
Usually sending a flirty response and seeing how the guy reacts can help you figure out if he’s interested in more than just a friendly conversation.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to be playful and tease the guy.
Tell him that you think he’s cute too and thank him for the compliment. You can also take it a step further and jokingly ask if he was trying to flirt with you or ask you out.
Before we share with you some more ideas, let’s quickly discuss what exactly it means to be called cute or pretty.

Why Does He Call Me Pretty or Cute But Not Beautiful?
Some women think that if the guy calls them cute or pretty it means that he is not physically attracted to them but usually it is not the case.
All it means is that he likes your appearance but doesn’t feel comfortable calling you beautiful or hot or thinks it is too soon.
It also depends on the situation; if you just met and started chatting, he may choose to call you cute or pretty rather than beautiful.
If however, you are both getting drinks at the bar or club and getting tipsy, he may be more comfortable and brave to use words like beautiful or even hot.
Everyone has different ways of expressing how they feel so don’t take it too personally.
All that matter is that he finds you attractive so take it as a compliment instead of worrying about the words he chooses to use.
