It means you are female, and therefore you THINK TOO MUCH.
Seriously, guys are easy. They say what they mean. Where girls get confused is, they try to "analyze" the frick out of everything that men say. If a man says "I gotta take a dump", it does NOT mean...
- That he's not into you
- That the food you cooked for him made him sick
- That he wants some private time to spank the monkey
- That he wants to check his phone for messages from some other chick.
But it DOES mean:
He has to go to the bathroom, RIGHT NOW, because he feels a bowel movement starting.
Sadly, most women will imagine at least 100 meanings for "I gotta take a dump" if that is what a man says.
Now, your question is, what does it mean if a man calls you cute? Drumroll, PLEASE....
It means that in his opinion, you look cute.
There ya go. I just solved all the mysteries of the universe for you. Did I mention I charge $1000, payable up front in cash, with a two hour minimum????
