I guess I think of "cute" more as a physical description of one's looks and "hot" as an attitude descriptor. Like one girl said earlier, you can be thought of as cute, but you have a "hot/sexy" side. I think initially a girl can be approached because a guy thinks she's cute and as they get to know her, they begin to notice certain characteristics and mannerisms about her that, in turn, elevates her into coming across as "hot".
I guess cute is all about appearance to me and hot is a state of mind, really, if that makes sense. So, would I prefer one or the other? I'd prefer them both. Why? In terms of my explanation, I think that cute can draw a guy in, but hot will make them stick around.0
