Hot is like an adjective that's meaning, lust, or like damn I just wanna get laid by you.Usually, Hot guys intimidate me and are too hard for me to approach. But cute is either. awhh I would either to be his best friend, or that, that guy is more approachable and would be a good boyfriend type.
i think theyre the same, but hot I try not to use because it just involves looks and lust, whereas cute is like I wanna be his girlfriend and have a relationship with him because I like his personality as well as looks
I believe the reason is that hot resonates on only a physical level. This is more attractive to guys cause face it if she looks like Megan Fox we are amazingly skilled at ignoring a lack of personality.
Cute on the other hand is more all encompassing more like what girls tend to go for. It resonates emotionally and includes personality as much as looks.
They mean the same thing. One girl may call you cute, and another might call you hot, it doesn't matter as long as you get called one or the other, your in good shape, that means your attractive to women simple as that.
like girls have said here, often when girls say cute its because theyre putting your personality in there too, not just the way you look.
if you're at a pool and you're in shape and some girl sees you almost naked like that she's gonna think sexual things and say you're hot. but otherwise (unless you're really physically attractive to them) they'll just say cute
also I think some girls would feel awkward blatantly telling you "youre hot" lol. even if they think it.
idk about you but rarely have I straight up told some girl "you're hot", unless she was my girlfriend or something. instead I'd say "youre attractive" or "youre really good looking". I think that's how girls feel by saying a guy is "cute"
