What does lovely mean?
What does lovely mean as compared to sexy/cute/hot/beautiful? I was at barnes and noble today and a guy came up to me and said "You are very lovely". This happened to me twice this past year. Isn't it like the same thing as beautiful? I don't know I'm just curious. I mean I think I know what it means but I just want to see what other people say.

In my opinion:lovely -> charming (independent identity)sexy --> exude a sexual aura, possibly with the help of figure-excentuating clothes/accessoriescute --> apparently innocenthot --> sexually attractivebeautiful --> your entire physical look seems consistent with a single expression (e.g. your personality)

If anyone calls you any of those words, good for you. But I think beautiful is better than the other three cause it relates to more than just the physical.
It means that he has a larger vocabulary than most guys. But that's no surprise, if he was hanging out in a bookstore :)

If pretty and beautiful were colors and you mix them together, you would get lovely. It's a great compliment.
My British family says "lovely" a lot, but it usually means that you're overall a very nice/sweet, pleasant, happy person. Also polite, considerate. It doesn't neccisarily(sp?) mean your looks, but it includes it.(sorry if that was a bit confusing)
