What is the difference between handsome, gorgeous, and classy?
To me the words means pretty much the same, one means another pretty much but does anyone see a difference between the three words?

Handsome - (Usually used to describe a male), That has very good looks.
Gorgeous - (Usually used to describe either a man/or woman), but mostly women who have very good looks.
Classy - A behavior or personality trait, (Ex. not cursing, very polite, dresses very nicely (nothing provocative or trampy), has manners.
What Girls Said 13
Handsome: Looks nice (like put together, not sloppily dressed). A strong face (no weak chin or beady eyes). Looks like a man, not a boy.
Handsome (for women): Put together well. More manly features. Isn't a pretty woman, but she seems powerful and isn't the least bit sloppy.
Gorgeous (for men): Handsome, but also with rugged good looks. A fabulous smile and hair that wouldn't look weird being flipped out of his eyes as he walked up onto the beach out of the water.
Gorgeous (for women):
Classy: Polite. They don't point out others' bad points (in public). They have something kind to say about everyone (even if it's just "Well, he hasn't killed anyone lately"). It has nothing to do with material goods. This is the person you wouldn't be embarrassed to introduce to your parents (as a friend or anything) and the person you'd trust not to teach your kids swear words.
Those are what I consider the words to mean.
Handsome : adjective
1. (of a man) good-looking.
• (of a woman) striking and imposing in good looks rather than conventionally pretty.
• (of a thing) well made, imposing, and of obvious quality
Gorgeous : adjective
beautiful; very attractive • informal very pleasant
Classy : adjective
stylish and sophisticated
Classy is a self-defeating word. Think about it: anything described as classy generally isn't. Classy now means "having superficial trappings of wealth." Fake marble, fake gilt, fake blond hair, and loud jewelry. Unless you want to imply that something is faux-elegant, use elegant or sophisticated instead. It's hard even to use classy ironically—better to use swanky.
Gorgeous is feminine adj. to describe something that is above pretty and cute, equivalent to beautiful but lesser than a stunning or jaw dropping.
Handsome is masculine adj. referring to the same of gorgeous but more manly of quite good looking.
to me gorgeous is the greatest compliment a guy can give a girl. it is saying that she's not just another "hot" girl but she's beautiful and unique in her own way that makes her more than just "hot".
when I think of a guy as being "handsome" I think of him dresesd up in a suit, mainly with masculine facial features and it being more about looks. he's more than cute, and above just "hot"
classy is the way someone acts. this doesn't have to do with physical features. it's about manners, grace, and the way someone carries him/herself and handles situations. for example a classy girl will not exceed more than her limit when she's out drinking (more than likely stay below her limit) she won't be dressed like she needs attention, or act like an attention whore, she will be able to be confident and charismatic but not into herself. she will not be playing flip cup or beer pong with the guys either.
a classy guy has manners and knows how to treat a woman. he won't treat her like a piece of "a$$" and will open doors, pull out chairs and offer to pay for dinner. he makes plans in advance with a girl, not the night of, and is a true gentleman. he's also not playing flip cup or drinking out a beer funnel because his college days are fun memories but not for someone who is an adult now.
**classy does NOT mean that someone can't have fun or that theyre stuffy. it simply means they have fun in a different way - one that doesn't include throwing up in trash cans
handsome=classic good looking
classy=high class, not sleazy. refined, dignified, has manners and class.
gorgeous=extremely good looking
Handsome is a term used to describe how good looking a guy is
Classy - is a dressing sense some have it some don't. Like casual etc. I'm told my dressing style is classy
Gorgeous - again is a term used to describe looks this time for both female and male. It's got a slightly higher ranking than handsome. It can also be used to describe other things ie. Clothing
