What Does It Mean When A Guy Calls You Gorgeous?


There are a lot of different compliments that a man gives a woman. Sometimes it can be tricky to understand his intentions are that lie behind the said compliment. Is he flirting with you? Is he just trying to be nice? What is his deal? These are all questions that you will find yourself asking right after it happens. Especially if he goes ahead and calls you gorgeous.

What does gorgeous mean?

Calling someone gorgeous means that you are calling them beautiful, attractive or very pleasant. This doesn’t have to be secluded to looks, if someone says it they could very well be talking about personality, attitude OR the person’s looks. However, most of the time when it is coming from a guy (especially one that you have a crush on) it usually is based on your physical appearance.

You have to remember, though, that it doesn’t always indicate to him wanting to be more than just friends with you.

A guy can find you attractive physically, but not be attracted to you mentally or emotionally. As a matter of fact, he could just be giving you a compliment.

But how are you supposed to know what he means when he says it? Why did he say it?

The answers to those questions ultimately depend on who he is to you, when he said it, the length of your relationship and where you are!

Who is he?

Think about the relationship between the two of you. Is he a stranger? If so, be wary of strangers when they give you compliments. Especially if you are just walking down the street. And extra especially if you are walking home alone, at night. Be careful with men who shout gorgeous at you that you are not familiar with. These are called ‘catcalls’. What is a catcall? Well, for those of you that don’t know, a catcall is when someone either whistles at you, shouts at you or make a sexually related comment towards you as you walk by.  When you are called gorgeous in that type of situation, you can be sure it means nothing other than the stranger finds you pleasing to look at! Do not engage with random catcallers. They could be very creepy and their intentions may not be the best ones. Although it feels nice to be paid a compliment by a stranger, it’s best to just walk away from those types of situations. Unless you know jiu-jitsu or are really good with self defense. Then by all means, engage!

If it is not a man that is a stranger, is the man who called you gorgeous someone that you have known for quite a long time or at least a little bit more time than a stranger? If so, you can certainly let your guard down and accept the compliment. It is less sketchy when a man you are familiar with calls you gorgeous. This just means that he finds you super attractive. It could also mean that he realized you were having a bad day and maybe he thought giving you that compliment would cheer you up a little bit. They could just be trying to flatter you. Raise your confidence and self-esteem levels a little bit. In other words, he may just be a good friend! You will have to think about the day that you have been having with this man. Does it make sense that he might be trying to cheer you up? Did you just go through something horrible or difficult? These are important things to think about when trying to figure out why he called you gorgeous.

Another thing that you should definitely ask yourself is does he like you at all? We know it may not be as obvious as you want, but we want you to think really hard and deep about the relationship that the two of you have with one another. If he is not a friend, as mentioned in the previous paragraph, is he an almost lover? What’s an almost lover? An almost lover is someone that you can feel yourself building a relationship with, but it is not all the way built up just yet. When you have an almost lover, you will know. This can be someone that has done romantic things with you or has made an effort to initiate physical contact. If the man who called you gorgeous is what you call your almost lover, then there is a good chance he is simply trying to flatter and charm you because he is extremely into you in every way! He finds you attractive and wants to let you know it. If he starts saying it quit often, along with things like ‘beautiful’, ‘cute’, ‘perfect’, etc. then there is a good chance that he is getting ready to take your relationship to the next level. Guys who aren’t ready to commit will not compliment you so often and they certainly would not compliment your looks that frequently!


  1. The guy who told me that I’m apparently “gorgeous”, is so good-looking. I would jump his bones in no time, but one step at a time, eh?

    • He has informed you that he finds you attractive. This may be a sign that he is interested in developing a physical relationship with you as well. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Sarah!

  2. I had “Gorgeous x” in bad spelling as a message but I messed up sending loads, I mentioned his singer he likes then he went silent for 2 days. Has only said “sorry got a lot going on” silence since I only met the guy last Saturday and it’s Wednesday today.

    • This person has informed you that he has a lot going on at this time. It is possible that he is interested in speaking with you, but his life is keeping him busy. Accept his statement. If he reaches out to you in the future, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. You will draw positive people and energy into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Collette!

  3. I have a chat friend. He is older than me 8 years. He always calls me ‘gorgeous friend’ and ‘lovely friend’. What does it mean? Could it possible to be more than friend?

    • His behaviors are clear indications that he is attracted to you. Make a decision about what you feel is appropriate. If you want to reach out to him, then be clear about your thoughts and feelings.

  4. I chat with a guy, older than me 15 years, he is 62 and I am 47. We chat regulary for 5 months before he came to meet me at my country.

    He came to meet me and spent time together for a week. (No intimacy yet).

    He always call me “Gorgeous friend, Lovely friend, Beautiful friend, Cute, Sexy, Naughty”.

    But I told these words while we were chatting before we met and also … after we met he is still using these words.

    He told me that he missed me and likes me. And he would like yo visit me again soon.

    BUT … no ‘L’ word yet, event we were hugging, snuggling, patting (he patted my back), kissing lips & tongue kissed as well (and he also kissed my forehead & cheek too).

    Once I asked him about what he did and our status/ relationship, he told me that “We are special friends. Let’s start with this first and see next.”.

    I am very disappointed and sad .. as it’s unclear.

    I don’t understand & confused as only the feeling ‘LIKE’ & ‘Special friend’ can do like this?

    Ps. All of what happened are the 1st time as I used to have only 2BFs since 2x years ago, very short while & no intimacy.

    I am quite strict Christian, I don’t want to have intimacy before get married.

    • It is clear about what your partner wants for your relationship. He hasn’t told you that he loves you or that he is interested in maintaining a relationship with you. He is interested in maintaining a physical relationship with you, but you are aware that such a relationship is not possible at this time. You need to make a decision about what is appropriate for the future of this relationship.
