I would probably date any girl who fell under at least one of these categories. As for definitions...
Cute is a girl who is girly; I think there's a bit of an immaturity and shyness involved but not necessarily a lot. Also, I don't think I've ever seen ugly-cuteness but I have seen plain cuteness
Pretty is a girl who is physically attractive
Beautiful is a girl who is physically attractive and probably out of my league
Hot is a girl who is a little sexy (see below) but also physically pretty or beautiful
Sexy is a girl who makes me think of sex. Then again, most of the former can fall under this category (cute depends on the type of cuteness)
Finally, don't overthink it if you were called one of these things as guys' definitions vary and they can blurt stuff out when talking with other guys. Also, some girls might be hot one day and cute another.
I think most guys use "cute" as in "not really sexy, but Id still date her" or a rating of 7/10.
But for me, I use it in a more literal sense. cute is what I'm attracted to. Girls I call cute are usually the the highest on the attraction scale. I'm crazy about the "cute innocent girl" look even more than "sexy bad girls". Sexy girls are appealing If I'm 'in the mood', but cute girls are the ones I'm more attracted to for dating and and going out with.
I woulnt put much weight on the definitions, they mean something different to everyone, but all that matters is the words all mean "attractive".
I associate the word cute with short, friendly girls.
I associate words hot and sexy with tall slender women I'd like to date and sleep with.
Beautiful is for girls I find hot and sexy but it's more than just physical.
Pretty = any girl that looks good.
What Girls Said 1
to guys cute means she is attractive and sweet and girlfriend material
hot and sexy are sexual they want to bang her doesn't mean they wouldn't date her but sometimes they could only like her body, especially if she wears revealing clothes, and they are more likely to use these words for girls they see in only a sexual manner
beautiful means extremely attractive but not just sexual
pretty means good looking
a lot of times they will use all of these on a girl they like they all are good
