  • Yes. Apparently anyway. I have no idea what it is but it exists.

What Girls Said 4

  • Most people use the word attractive towards someone they would consider dating. Saying pretty can sometimes be used for looking cute or looks good but wouldn't date.

  • I think attractive means more like desirable. You can see a pretty girl, admire her, but not want her or to be around her. If she's attractive, she's the sort of person who draws others to her.

What Guys Said 3

  • Pretty: above average, attractive in some way

    Attractive: looks good... basically just not unattractive

    Hot: sexually attractive (guys wouldn't describe a real crush as hot normally)

    Beautiful: very attractive, and way better looking than most people

    Bonus
    Cute: cute in a sibling type of way, OR also girlfriend material. Like in a "I wanna cuddle and hug you a lot". Also can contain more than their looks--the things they do are cute.

  • I use Pretty and beautiful for the face.
    Hot for the body
    and attractive for an overall package.

  • I think pretty is when someone has good facial features and nice skin and kinda cute but attractive is more like being more sexually appealing.
