So according to all of you males out there, what makes physical qualities make a girl cute and how does it compare to hot?

Honestly, I think the distinction between these two labels is overblown cultural marketing hype, and really shouldn't be that important as far as a guy is concerned.
Both imply that the girl is "attractive" (which is the only universal notion) and the only reason we make the distinction between these two different kinds of attractiveness is because society conditions us that way. But for me, I don't see "cute vs hot"...I only see whether I find a girl attractive or not. Later I might think of how I would describe why she's attractive, but it's not the first thing that matters to me.
In terms of definitions, I'd say that "hot" refers to stereotypical attractiveness, the kind of traits that one looks for in super models. I'd say that "cute" refers to any kind of attractiveness that's not stereotypical, and is therefore more subjective.
Also, "cuteness" refers more to the features that unique about someone, like the way someone smiles. And since faces are what we use to uniquely recognize someone, it's also usually facial features that we think of as making someone cute or not.
I'm probably trying to be too logical about this...0
