Most of the times , I have been called handsome by women and gay men. Whereas, cute has been used very few times. I want to understand the difference between the two. I would also love to know which one is your preference as in you want to be with a cute man or handsome man. I know this is not women's issue; but women have created this an issue for me. Gay guys are also welcome to lend me a helping hand to understand the difference between the two terms frequently used to complement/describe a man. Thank you in advance!
