I was recently talking to a group of my guy friends about the difference between a 'cute' girl versus a hot girl or a gorgeous girl. What is the difference? - So many different adjectives associated with attraction. I don't get it. Any thoughts?

Cute Beautiful/ gorgeous and hot are all relative to the "standard" for attractiveness.
Lets call the standard "Hot", Hot is a play boy bunny. A Hot girl generally looks something like a girl you would see on the cover of a Victoria's secret catalog. Strictly speaking a hot girl is a girl that sexually attracts a male and when I say sexually I mean sexually. Guys generally want to have sex with hot girls (as opposed to romantic dinners).
Cute is a little different. Cute means good looking but not necessarily conforming to the standard for sexual attraction. A Cute girl is a girl that isn't Hot but is still attractive. Cute means that she's attractive TO THAT SPECIFIC MALE as opposed to attractive to the collective as a hot girl would. A cute girl attracts a guy by her face rather than her body.
Beautiful/ Gorgeous is a little different. Beautiful is generally talking about a womans looks. Its something you would say to your wife. Beautiful doesn't have any sexual connotations to it (like hot) its strictly speaking about a womans good looks. ITs also more formal.
To put if VERY simply:
You want to have sex with a hot girl.
You want to hang out/ go out with a cute girl
You want to date a Beautiful Woman.5
