Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

It is absolutely and positively a compliment.
Men use it because it is a "safe" choice most women will not regard as creepy or overly-strong.
If a guy is using that word with you, he likes you.

I am not a guy. However, when I hear "cute" I think of someone like Katie Couric (who apparently HATED being told she was cute). When I hear pretty, I think of someone like Julia Roberts or Halle Barry (sp?), when I hear the word beautiful, I think of the likes of Elizabeth Taylor or Natalie Wood or Rita Hayworth, when I hear sexy, I think of someone like...what is her name, the singer who wears next to nothing....Rianna?
If you are often told you are cute that is a GOOD thing, because it means that not only is the guy attracted to you but you are also someone he can see being in a relationship with.

Does cute mean they feel sorry for the person, but they look sort of okay?

can't you just take a compliment as a compliment without the need to perfectly mind-read the complimenter? consider whether this is part of a pattern of analyzing things until your inner dialogue is swamped by insecurity.
