I guess I think of "cute" more as a physical description of one's looks and "hot" as an attitude descriptor. Like one girl said earlier, you can be thought of as cute, but you have a "hot/sexy" side. I think initially a girl can be approached because a guy thinks she's cute and as they get to know her, they begin to notice certain characteristics and mannerisms about her that, in turn, elevates her into coming across as "hot".
I guess cute is all about appearance to me and hot is a state of mind, really, if that makes sense. So, would I prefer one or the other? I'd prefer them both. Why? In terms of my explanation, I think that cute can draw a guy in, but hot will make them stick around.
Cute seems to relate more to personality and quirks, and it's great when someone notices those and appreciates them.
Hot is more sexual, and it's always nice to hear someone you're interested in say that they find you sexually attractive. Plus, if I'm interested in him and whatnot I want to get him in bed anyway.
If I could only choose one word though, it would be beautiful or gorgeous. That just seems to cover everything to me, and if you find a guy that genuinely means it then it's just a lovely thing to hear :)
Beautiful, You can be cute & hot. & its about spirit & energy & personality as well as aesthetics.
Otherwise, cute. Because as someone said *cute* can become hot. Hot is harder to make cute...
Well really, it doesn't matter. I'm me. I've been called both & they both feel the same because w/e it means its said about me- you get it? the name doesn't make the meaning.. Shakespeare dealt with this issue lol ...A rose by any other name...
I'd say cute for sure, because if I'm "hot" then guys probably will only be interested in me for sex/random hookups. But a girl who's "cute" generally means she has an adorable personality and is also pretty, and someone guys might be more likely to actually have a relationship with. And that's what I want.
personally; I think that everyone can be pretty. 'there are no ugly people, just lazy ones' but to answer your question I think that most people - especially me - strive for what we haven't got. which can of course be a good thing; but what I'm trying to say is that 'hot' people probably strive to sometimes be 'cute' and vice versa. but I would like to be both, but if I really had to pick I would slightly favour cute (:
To me, being cute is this timeless thing. No matter what age, any one can still be cute rather than hot. Also, from the things I've seen from this site, cute girls are more of the take-home-meet-the-parents-material. I'm sure that will come in handy when I'm ready to settle down. Also from observation, guys treat cute girls with more respect than hot girls.
And being considered cute all my life, I don't feel the need to change that now or ever.
I'd rather be told I'm beautiful. Yeah, it's nice to be cute, and when we're in the mood I want to be hot, but I want to be respected and be told about how I am as a person and when I'm not trying to be sexy.
Cute for some reason to me implies personality and looks.But being hot or called hot,sort of means I want to sleep with you...and that's about it. Just my opinion. Simply because I was called "hot" by some dude and he never took me seriously.He just wanted to get laid. :(
I think cute- In my opinon, it makes me think guys aren't only thinking about having sex- they're thinking about personality, looks, etc
I mean, it's nice to be called either one, don't get me wrong. I've always wanted to be that girl that was cute outside the bedroom, and hot inside the bedroom. hah. Just overall, I'd like to be called cute.
Cute! I love being told you have pretty eyes, or your beautilfe. Hot, makes me think of when people commenton stuff like your butt or boobs. Its okay the first time, but after it gets a little weird!
