Stroking your chin with your first two fingers

What does that sign mean? I saw it used a lot yesterday.

The facial expression would differentiate these a bit, cute has something like an "oooh" face along with the sign . Looks like you might have been getting some compliments either way.

Posts from Hell - very close to that sign. It was a deaf girl who signs both ASL and LSQ so it could be a local thing. I'm going to try to find out tomorrow when I go to the softball game.

I don't either. That's a joke of thinking about what it could mean...

It look like a person is thinking about something or in doubt. If you go the list of faces and touch it "Hmm" pop up.

It seems to describe CUTE. I've never seen a sign used for SPORTS. Context would be really helpful. It's like someone asking, "What does 'run' mean?" without context.
