  • i would like it when a guy would pick out of one of those three words, it woul dbe beautiful and I have gotten that said to me :-) *smiles*

    i hate being called 'hot' because idk, it's not as nice as being called beautiful. being called 'hot' just objectifies me .

    it depends on what situation it is I guess. if I'm with my friends and they say my out fit is sexy when we're going out then depending on where we are at, it's just too much if some weird random guy calls me sexy the first time he meets me.

    i would rather be called beautiful

  • "Hot" and "sexy" imply that a guy is only thinking of you physically. "Beautiful" means more than that, which is why I would prefer it.

  • all can be good depending on the context...but for most cases definitely beautiful...another good one is gorgeous...that one works like a charm (on me at least) :)

  • While sexy and hot are still compliments, I would much rather be called beautiful. Beautiful sounds much more respectful than the other two. Also, the word beautiful does not only acknowledge physical appearance, but personality as well. Sexy and hot seem to only focus on how a girl looks on the outside and her body.

  • I don't know about other girls, but when a guy (my boyfriend) calls me hott or sexy I'm like "Oh ok, thanks." When a guy friend says that I get p*ssed. But if any guy sais I'm beautiful I blush, and stutter. :P

  • Ok. I know most of the girls on here said they don't like being called "hot" or "sexy" and I know it's cause some girls feel like they're being looked at like a sex symbol and not a person. totally depends on the guy who's calling you sexy. There's a lot of creeps and guys who just want to fu*k a girl that use "hot" and "sexy" when catcalling.(which by the way, most decent women hate catcalling unless you are able to do it in a funny/cute, not dirty, way.)

    If the guy says it like 'oh wow she's hot', I don't think ANY woman would dislike that. So totally depends on the context.

    Beautiful or cute doesn't mean much to me though. Flowers are beautiful, babies are cute. My favorite word is gorgeous. That is by FAR the most flattering.

    It would be a compliment to me if a guy friend or my boyfriend told me I was hot or sexy. But...not some guys I don't know catcalling down the street.

    I have a question for the guys though...Do you like being called sexy? I would always yell out "hey sexy" when me and my ex-boyfriend would meet up and he loved it. But my most recent boyfriend doesn't seem to like me ever calling him sexy...thoughts?

  • It's more of a compliment when a guy calls a girl pretty or beautiful because then he's looking at who she is as well as looks. But when you get called hot they're usually looking at your body.

  • i hate hot and sexy... bleh! I don't exactly know why, I just hate it! I love being called beautiful though...

    • Thanks! because I know a guy who calls his girlfriend sexy/hot. and she just wants to punch his front teeth right out lol. that relationship isn't gonna last long, hahaha!

      I was pretty sure, "beautiful" would be better than sexy/hot to most girls. Thanks!!!

  • I like beautiful better but only say that if yoyu really think it. Do not use it orneveryone you have to categorize (beautiful, pretty, cute, etc.). Being sexy does not mean beautuful.

  • well me being a girl I like people to if my sexy, hot or cool. Because it nice to know that there is something good about you

  • for me I like to be called beautiful.. cute or pretty.. that means the guy really like me.. but hot or sexy means he likes my body or the way I look.. I don't mind my boyfriend calling me sexy but I don't like it when others guys do.. =S

  • Hell yes. I think the women who hardly get this type of attention are the ones who like it, but don't let it fool you into thinking that what the low-hanging fruit respond to is what we all like.
    I get sick of being called 'sexy' by strangers online, and am turned off in person. A tip. The more attractive the girl, the more she gets this kind of attention and believe it or not, a person resides inside that sexy exterior and she'd like to be acknowledged.

  • it really depends on the situation. but for the most part beautiful is the best...but every once in a while a girl wants to hear that they're sexy...well at least I do.

  • well I hate it when I get called hot or sexy

    cos it shows that the guy is only going for the body.

    but I reckon using the word beautiful is sweet. (:

  • To me if someone calls me sexy it just means he's attracted to me sexually which means he finds me attractive for sex which would be uncomfortable to hear if I m not in that mood. But it could be a compliment if I'm planning on hooking up with someone.
    But being called beautiful makes me feel like I'm a pleasant attractive sight to look at. And it's also a deeper compliment to hear. It's the type of compliment that could make me emotionally attached to someone. It could make someone feel more confident about there image.

  • I'm asexual. The idea of anybody thinking of me in a sexual manner is unpleasant to say the least. This is quite apart from any connotations of objectification etc. Seeing as I don't experience sexual attraction, I don't understand how it translates into power. I imagine somebody else might know what to do with it. I don't - it feels like a violation to have people think of me in that way. I've been called sexy by a guy before and I ran for the hills.

    I don't think anyone who's not family has ever called me pretty, but I shared a flat with a boy who gave the best compliments (along the lines of "You're looking well today"). I think I like that so much because it seems to express some appreciation for my general well-being beyond just how I looked.

  • I would rather be called beautiful. We are programed to take that as the ultimate compliment.

  • I would 100% agree with the previous poster Miss Desirae. I like being called all 3 but beautiful is definitely the nicest one.

  • beautiful, hot, sexy. they are all compliments with good intentions. but terms like sexy or hot are often misinterpereted by females, seeing us guys as pigs who only see the physical aspect of how a woman looks at the moment. it has a lot to do with the context in which it is applied. if your girlfriend bought some new clothes it doesn't hurt to say that she looks hot in that particular shade of blue, or that mini skirt looks sexy on her. but when it comes to a genuine compliment, very few words can be used. you can tell her that she looks stunning , fabulous, gorgeous or whatever comes to mind. but the best way to compliment a girl unprovoked is to let her know just how beautiful she looks at that very moment.

    • Exactly. Coming from someone you love and actually have sex with, it's nice. From others it's just sick. I hate it,

  • I love all the girls on this forum saying they wouldn't like to be called sexy. Come on ladies please be honest, it's anonymous posting you don't have to carry on with the chirade. Girls love to hear that they are sexy because sexy=power. It is the sexy woman that twirl men around and make them do their bidding. Maybe you wouldn't want to be associated with sex appeal as your number one trait, but if you are a smart intelligent woman would you rather be smart or smart and sexy? Probably the latter. If you are not sexy than don't post on this board saying that you wouldn't want to be called sexy because you have never been called sexy before. I doubt any of you would be feeling down if all the men thought you were they sexiest girl on the block.

    • Why not take the advice. No one is pretending anything. Sheesh

  • looks like the answer is beautiful then :)

    it's a lot easier to say gorgeous though I don't know why.

    people take the mick if you say beautiful cus its saounds "gay" and pathetic" apparently!
