  • You are cute.


  • All right, let's get this straight: The word cute is predominantly used to describe the sweet look of an animal or a little child


  • The term is sometimes used to describe an adult, but only in informal situations between close friends and lovers


  • Generally, describing someone you find physically appealing as cute in British English is just a bit... ugh.

    2番目:「you're lovely」(あなたは素敵です。)

  • Saying someone is 'lovely' is like calling someone nice.


  • We use this adjective to describe many things including people.

  • Number eight: You're 'enchanting'.

    8番目:「 You're enchanting.」( あなたは魅惑的です。)

  • To 'enchant' someone is to put them under a spell.


  • Therefore, if you are 'enchanting' then people will be mesmerised by you, attracted to you as if by magic.


  • Number nine: Your 'captivating'.

    9番目:「You're captivating.」(あなたは人を魅了します。)

  • Along the same lines as enchanting, we have 'captivating'.
