How would you define these terms and how are they different? Because I have been called "cute" by some people, and "sexy" by others...

In the physical context, does "cute" refer more to one's face..whereas "hot" refers more to the body?

It varies from person to person. It's like debating the difference between handsome and good-looking. They're all good things.

Two reasons a man will call a female "cute":

#1-He doesn't want to give away that he thinks you're out of his league in the looks dept.
#2- He really doesn't find you pretty or knocked out good looking, but may find you somewhat attractive.

I'd say this chick qualifies as cute:



This chick is pretty



This chick is hot/sexy (not embedded since it's a sexy photo, don't wanna screw over someone who's browsing at work)

I'd gladly get intimate with any of the three (the first one does look a little young though, I've just seen her photo a lot all over the internet). I assume my best chances would also be with her, but y'never know...

Interesting... I'd go with:

1) cute
2) beautiful & sexy
3) cute

Hmmm, this sounds logical in my world. I've never been referred to as hot but I have been told I'm "cute" or "pretty".

Just ONCE I'd like to be smokin' or hot....or smokin' HOT!

Edited to add....
It may have to do with personality too. Some women cannot pull off "sexy" or "hot". Some have a bubbly personality so cute probably fits the personality more so than the looks.

It isn't the words but how they are delivered and in the context.

For instance "cute"


"He is cute, we had a nice time tonight". That basically sounds like she had a nice time and he has qualities but he doesn't really rock her world.

Now the word cute again


" whoa look at that guy standing by the pool" "Oh yeah he is soooooooo cute, UGH HUH BABY! And he looks sooooo nice in those shorts." Cute and nice in this sense is really hot or sexy.


The term hot and sexy is always a "oh yeah" good seal of approval.

Or a scenario in my twisted mind combining all is this...

As we are getting back to my place I say."That dress is very pretty, you look pretty."

When we get back to my place and she is taking off that pretty dress I say " oh your bra is cute, like that flowery design"

After that it is all hot and sexy from there because that pretty dress and cute bra are laying on my floor...

Cute is more innocent and a little childlike and seems to refer more to the face, while sexy is...well sexy, lol.

Default The Difference Between "Cute" and "Hot/ Sexy" and "Pretty"

For alpha males the difference:

"Cute" - he'll have sex with you, usually on a weeknight, at your place.

"Hot/ Sexy" - he'll have repeat sex with you and rub his buddies noses in it.

"Pretty" - he may want to marry you, if he can't come to an alternate long term exclusive
arrangement.

Just a sub average week for such men.
