    Default Hansome vs. Cute

    Which one is better? If someone calls you hansom is that better than cute or vice versa?

    Please explain your answer if you can.

    Thanks in advance

    Handsome is looks only cute is personality/mannerisms, etc.

    Both are good. I'd pick cute if I had to choose.

    handsome has more of a manly, mature connotation, I guess. I don't think the two are mutually exclusive though. I think my boyfriend is handsome, cute, and sexy

    You can act cute, but you can't act handsome.

    When I say it about guys:

    Handsome means that he's traditionally asthetic; i.e. he has symmetrical features, dresses reasonably, is viewed as generally attractive by most people.

    Cute means that I haz feelings for him or seeing him makes me want to cuddle him forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and... unless you're a stranger and I say "kinda cute". Then I'm just being polite ._.

    When I say it about girls:

    Handsome means she's either old or very old fashioned.

    Cute can either be said to be polite/nice (when it's actually true- I don't give insincere compliments) or to mean that I'd like to do things with her that nice Catholic girls aren't supposed to want to do...

    interesting. Hopefully we get some more responses as I'm really curious on this subject.

    I was actually reading about symmetry and how females prefer it but I then read it is actually asymmetrical constructs which seem to balance in an effort to achieve symmetry which act as a hook for the imago dei...

    This kind of makes sense...cult figures are handsome in a sort of asymmetrical way.

    I use both to describe men. But handsome to me is more like.. serious stuff. A man in a suit, freshly shaved. Or a young boy polished up and ready for church. A very proud animal strutting his stuff.

    Cute is more child-like in nature.. like sometimes the way my boyfriend looks up at me, since he has a young face and really large eyes, it looks extremely cute and there is no other word to describe it. Or when he said as if he was so proud of himself even though he was attempting a bit of bemused sarcasm, "I'm approved!" at the check out line of the grocery store.. and I couldn't stop laughing it was so damn adorable. He isn't a 'cute' guy necessarily, he's a bit too scruffy for that on the daily, and his actions have a heavy hand of not-at-all-cute laced in them. ... but he has mannerisms and looks that have youth infused in them, and nothing screams youthful innocence to me like the word cute.

    I should add I call men pretty too. To me pretty doesn't quite have the same gravity that beautiful and handsome does.. it's just a more adult like version of cute. My best friend has very pretty hair, and there is no other way to describe it. It isn't feminine at all, but it is pretty.
