Sagi,
I typed the word "Cute" in Dictionary.com. The following are the hits:
1.Delightfully pretty or dainty.
2.Obviously contrived to charm; precious
3.Shrewd; clever.

I didnt see any negative synonym (like ugly) for this word.

'Cor Blimey Lady!
I never thought all those guys I found cute were "ugly"!!

Wot an eye opener this one is.

Come one seriously ...cute ain't ugly....cute is easy on the eyes....they have something which makes them fanciable ....usually till they open their mouths :ahha:


Cute is indeed adorable, but not quite handsome or beautiful...

never mention a girl in US that she is cute...which means cute does not mean pretty.
However, most kids are cute as well as pretty...dictionary meanings don't go well in practical.

hehehe... athe va sagi mummy... ammam... im in sagi's team.. sori gokul .. hehehe
its true.... even u see gokul said cute.... so is it meant in good terms or wat?
as moviefreak mentioned... cute in some places is meant as ugly.. but why?
for me... personally what i feel is cute means something adorable and nice to look at... for eg..when i see a kid doing something naughty or somethin like that.. ill say... sooo cute.. it is like saying ... choo chweet :) hehehe

Cute means ugly and interesting? Come up with the evidence.

In some parts of US, keeping the office too organized or neat is considered as a gay thing (really). Does it mean the same everywhere? NOOOOOO

Dictionary says pretty and charming (I gave the url as evidence). If somebody disputes that, its your responsibility to bring the evidence. Then, I will learn, shutup & go...

San don't worry da. I didn't want to tell the world what i know about cute. When i studied about it, i also thought its strange........that's the reason for bringing up this topic. just leave it...i am not here to fight :)

san2003
02-24-2004, 05:24 AM
me too ... im not here to fight
but its good u brought up this topic.. ill alwiz wondered wat it means in real... coz it seems now it is said as charming, beautiful and all the nice things
but i did learn n it was said as ugly but adorable... which simply meant its nice to look at coz adorable or interesting but in real fact it is ugly.... im tryin to find evidence as well :)

san2003
02-24-2004, 05:28 AM
i found this meaning in somebody's website... i dunno u can consider it to be evidence
"Cute is the lowest of the good looking people. Cute usually means that they have a few good qualities that make it easy to over look the bad qualities"
well.. basically i meant that... they r ugly but adorable.. so cute ;) hehehe

Sans/Sagi, good decision. Im not here to fight - since everybody is telling that ;)
Would be nice to see some evidence from that eng teacher :)
