Most Helpful Girl
'Hot" refers to sexy body, gorgeous eyes, incredible face, and overall model look. The good sides are focused on looks/physical attraction but not necessarily character. He might have good looks, but he is most likely unapproachable or mean or cocky.
Cute on the other hand is attractive both in the physical and character points of view. He is not exactly as physically good looking as the hot guy, but overall, he is better because he is approachable, and has good character.
Many girls would rather go out with a cute guy than a hot guy because a hot guy is most likely gonna be a player but a cute guy is probably going to be a keeper.
