The reason why I want to know is because I have either been referred to as sexy or pretty and feel that guys don't take you seriously with the labels they attach to you - but that just my opinion.

Sexy: a very intense form of attractive that is extremely eye catching, think a gas burner. (I strangely don't go for sexy because it has a very short span of time that it is active.) reaction:"Damn, she's sexy!"<shock reaction
Hot: low form of sexy
Beautiful: a combination of both physically attractive and demeanor. "(I have used Sexy for countless girls but only used beautiful only twice.)"WOW."<note the lack of exclamation, calm, stunned reaction.
Pretty: a medium level attractiveness that takes a long time to reach it's peak and last for decades, think wood fire. Reaction: "look at her!"
Attractive: the scale.( if a guy calls you attractive, you look nice looking but not his type.)
