Cute, Sexy, Beautiful, Gorgeous?
What is the difference between a guy calling you cute, sexy, gorgeous, etc?
I've always had this idea in my head that if a guy simply says you're "cute," that it means you aren't beautiful or gorgeous or something, but that you have a nice personality.
So, boys, is there any difference in these terms?

Okay there is no difference. I usually say cute, even if the girl is gorgeous. Why? Because I don't want to give away all my chips. If I say, "Wow, you're gorgeous! " You'll think, "This guy really likes me. " You'll take the chips out of my hand so fast and run me like a damn marathon. I'm always modest because a girl has to know that she has no power over me, she can't just do any old thing. You never show a player all of your hand until the very end. If I hold out, I can make bluffs, and if I make bluffs, I can tweak the game so it goes my way. Okay now that I've obliged your request, answer me this. Do you think I should tell girls they're sexy or gorgeous instead of cute and why?

When I use those terms, I mean them interchangeably. In other words, they all mean "attractive" to me.
BUT, if I was using it for a particular reason, these would be my definitions:
Cute: All around good looking. Someone who catches my eye just by being. For what it's worth I go for cute girls, because cuteness doesn't change with clothing or makeup or skin tanness or diet (to a certain degree), it's just a property that a girl has or doesn't have and what's considered cute varies a lot from guy to guy.
Sexy: Sexy describes actions, usually body language or speech. Sometimes it can refer to how she looks, but not usually.
Gorgeous: I never use this word.
Hot: Hot is someone who has the stereotypically attractive qualities, like if I told my mates I met a "hot" girl they'd already have an idea of her figure and whatnot.
To be totally honest, I wouldn't worry about his word choice at all.
Very good question.
I think it depends on the guy, but I'll take a shot at this one.
"cute" - hey I like what you're wearing, you look good, and I both notice and appreciate the effort that you put into making yourself look that way. Kudos.
"hot" - a reference to physical beauty alone. Not clothing, makeup, personality, etc. It's only the raw materials. Some girls can fake being hot by doing all kinds of unimaginable things to their bodies that guys have only heard tales of, but others are just plain hot - no way around it. Hot girls can be in sweats with their hair pulled back and no makeup, but they can still be freakin' hot. Hotness is by all means in the eye of the beholder. There is no set standard that is universal.
"sexy" - dang. The way you are acting, dressing, talking, etc. Is alluring to the point that I could be manipulated to some extent. I usually find myself at this point thinking things that should be reserved for my future wife. This (for me) is mostly used in reference to a girl's mannerisms or dress.
"gorgeous" - the particular woman in question is of inestimable physical beauty (particularly in reference to the face), and is well-dressed. This is usually in reference to non-standard up-scale clothing (formal attire / fancy stuff).
"beautiful" - this, for me, is the highest compliment because it takes in the whole person, not just the outside. When a woman is beautiful to me, she has an awesome personality that I connect with, respect, and that challenges me to lead her and serve her with more energy, commitment, and honor. The icing on the cake for 'beautiful' is that they are also quite good-looking (see 'hot').
If you took the Webster's Dictionary, you could get a better idea of how these words should be used. I think it is miss used by many and including myself, but here are my opinions about how I would use them to describe a girl:
Sexy - Mostly about the body and little about the face
Beautiful - Mostly about the personality, no matter the looks
Cute - Combination of a beautiful personality and good looks
Gorgeous - All about the looks and body
Can you tell me your definition of these terms? I've always wondered what it meant when a girl called me cute and sexy. I get the "handsome" and "you're looking good", but "cute" and "sexy" can be confusing, huh.

I think there is. Even though I'm a girl.
When my boyfriend says I look cute, I think he means that I'm gorgeous to him, that I'm bubbly, that I'm fun, that I'm silly, that these just something about me that keeps him coming back, something nice about me that only the people who know me the way he does would see.
When he says sexy, I normally think his thinking he can't wait to get my clothes off, that he loves the way I look at that moment but probably wouldn't want his dad or mum to see me that way, that I'm the one that does it for him and turns him on but only wants himself to see me that way
When he says I look gorgeous, his trying to say that at that moment I've got the complete package, my hairs looking good, my nails are nice, my skin is clear, my make up is done, my outfit is eye catching but all in an elegent way, in a way that I look good enough for him to want to show me off to the world and not have to worry about his friends getting the wrong idea about me or thinking I'd wanna have her.
And beautiful, I think when someone tells you you are beautiful, they are referring to the inside part of you, your personality, your kind heart, your caring ways, your gentle touch, the thoughtful things you say, what a person does is what makes them beautiful, not just how they look.
In my preference, I like to be called cute when me and my boyfriend are playing games, or at an adventure park or sitting on the cough just being silly. I like being called sexy when it comes to bed time, and I'm not talking about going to sleep :p I like being called gorgeous when we're going out on a date to have dinner or to meet his parents or to a birthday, it makes me feel like his proud to show off what a gorgeous girl he has.
And beautiful, like to be called beautiful everyday. Cause everyone is beautiful in their own way.
