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.
And just a note for guys, you should do this to girls you find attractive. Tell them that they are beautiful/ lovely. It's really flattering and it seriously makes our day.
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.
