Guys is there a difference when you say "very pretty" vs. "beautiful"? I asked my platonic guy friend about my looks tonight and he said "I'll have to say you do have a very pretty face... So I can see what they mean."
("they" -- when someone comments on my looks, the majority of the time they use the word "beautiful" and it's usually unsolicited, thank God. Sometimes I get "gorgeous" and, rarely, sexy/hot - very very rarely "cute." I don't plan to post pics but the only "number" I've ever gotten was 6.5-7, from a girl.)
The question is - "how attractive is 'very pretty' vs. beautiful?" The reason I ask is because I don't have a clear sense of how I look other than what people have said, and spent a long time in high school/college thinking I was unattractive. I also get described as "striking" and "unconventionally beautiful."
