I've been told that I'm cute or pretty a lot by guys, but, I definitely know that I'm not hot. I'm 25 but I still kind of have a baby face/innocent kind of thing going on. Personality wise, I'm really laid back and have a dry sense of humor. One time I was on a date with this guy, and I know that I was better looking than him but he kept checking out our waitress every time she walked by because she was dressed "provocative". So, are guys into girls who are good looking but not necessarily "hot" or do they want someone who is more like sexy/hot?
I can't speak for all guys since I have a particular idea of attraction. It's not defined as "cute" or "hot" or "sexy" though, subconsciously, I know which physical and intellectual (personality) traits I'm looking for. Once I find them, I'll be attracted to a girl no matter which category anyone else wants to place her in.
I want someone whom has a brain, is nice looking, and can do things for herself. I'll do stuff with her, and I'll be there when she needs me, but I am not out looking for the hottest girl out there. I hope she has a good sense of humor, because my friends and I joke about many things, bodies included. But it's in good humor.
