What's the difference between beautiful and pretty?

Some look at me and say I'm beautiful and some say I'm very pretty. and once someone said that I'm not beautiful but I'm pretty... So is there really a difference?

And what do you prefer? Pretty or beautiful?

Please explain "beautiful"

  • To me- let me put it this way. When I met my ex I thought she was pretty. VEry very pretty. After I got to know her and got to see what kind of person she was, she became the most beautiful person in the world to me. Even though we're not together anymore, I have yet to find someone who has half of what she had, and women who are generally physically more attractive then her, still seem to pale in comparison because they're not as good a person.
