: Ok, I'm just curious, I don't know if this is like an actual phrase, but someone told me "I always thought you were cute in your own way", what exactly does "cute in your own way" mean? Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

I would say it means something like; although not classically 'cute' there is a certain idiosyncratic 'cuteness' all of your own about you.

Whether that is good or not is another matter - it strikes me as being a bit of backhanded compliment.
