Similar to the term "fine" when I ask how I look in "these pants" (knowing they are too tight).
Adorable and sweet are not words I want to be.
I want to be beautiful.
I want to be ravishing.
I want to be stunning in the way only tall, lean women who don't wear make up can be.
I looked cute on my prom.
I looked cute on our first date.
And I looked cute in the pictures from every, single, event I've dressed up for.
But sometimes cute feels like "not quite beautiful."
When I'd rather just settle with pretty.
