I was talking to my boyfriend about different terms that a guy calls a girl and how they have different meaning. For example, using the word "cute" to decribe a girl means she is less atractive than if you were to say she was stunning. He asked me if there was a hierarchy when it came to male terms as well. So i thought i would ask you all. Cute, hot, sexy, handsom, good looking... how would you put them in order to describe the most good looking to the least good looking guy?
Cute = 5+, would not take serously
Pretty = 5+, not interested
Beautiful = 6+, considered
Hot = 6+, would pursue
Stunning = 7+, would go exclusive instantly
Gorgeous = 6+, term of endearment
Sexy is different. Sexy = 5+, sexually curious; it actually has very little value.

Cute = Good looking in an adorable way. Also a guy's mannerisms can be cute, like if he does or says something sweet. I personally use this adjective the most; it may have to do with me liking guys with cute/boyish faces and caring personalities.
Hot = I only use this word when I'm referring to a guy's actions (e. g. "It was so hot when he [blank]"). When I think of a "hot guy" though, I picture someone who's conventionally very attractive, but not necessarily someone I'd want to date.
Sexy = I never use this word.
Handsome = All cleaned up and looking good!
Good looking = Attractive. I use these two words interchangeably.
Cute > handsome > good looking > hot > sexy
It's interesting how everyone uses words differently!1
