Dictionary definition:

Cute: Attractive in a pretty or endearing way.

Sexy: 
Sexually attractive or exciting.

Pretty: 
Attractive in a delicate way without being truly beautiful or handsome.

Beautiful: 
Pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically.

Urban dictionary definition:

Cute: A girl who is lovely and dreamy and cuddly and shy and beautiful and awwww *drools*

Sexy: Supposed to mean sexually attractive, however recently it has become a word of ambiguous meaning that morons use when unable to think of a better adjective for something they like.

Pretty: 1.)A girl who has physical appeals that attracts a guy.
2.)A girl can also be pretty inside in her feelings in her beliefs.

Beautiful:
Beautiful is a woman who has a distinctive personality, one who can laugh at anything, including themselves, who is especially kind and caring to others. She is a woman who above all else knows the value of having fun, and not taking life too seriously. She is a woman that you can trust and count on to brighten your day. She is a woman who can inexplicably make you feel really good just by being around her, and yet brings such great sadness when she is gone. She is a woman who I will never really get to know.

The first thing that comes up when Google Image searched:

Cute: A tiny, soft looking puppy.

Sexy: 
A meme of a chesty, tanned woman posing in front of a toilet.

Pretty: 
A brown-haired smiling woman.

Beautiful: 
The silhouette of a kissing couple with a digital, purple and pink, star-filled sky in the background.

Is it flattering to be given this label?:

Cute: Depends on if you’re cool taking a compliment that’s often directed at small animals & children.

Sexy:
Depends on if you’re attracted to the person saying it.

Pretty:
Depends on if it’s coming from someone other than your mother, because she’s basically obligated to tell you you’re pretty/handsome.

Beautiful:
Depends on if they’re referring to your physical appearance, because “beautiful on the inside,” is cool or whatever, but you know what we really want — tell us how we look.

Website a video of that type is most likely to go viral on:

Cute: YouTube

Sexy:

Pretty:
Does it involve pretty twerking or something? If no, it’s probably not going viral.

Beautiful:

How to tell which one you might be:

Cute: You’re a dwarf bunny.

Sexy:
You have multiple flirty messages in your Facebook inbox from people with whom you share ZERO mutual friends.

Pretty:
Post a selfie to Instagram right now and if it gets double-digit likes within a few hours, you’re pretty.

Beautiful: When you accidentally hit front cam on your phone, the face you see doesn’t terrify you.

Do you need to be a decent person as well if you’re already this thing:

Cute: Who, adorable you? Aww, of course not.

Sexy:
Look at you being all naughty – what was the question again?

Pretty:
Define decent?

Beautiful: You’re already gorgeous, so you don’t need to be anything else per se
. Human decency is only mandatory for below average looking people. When you’re a creme de la creme 10 out of 10 on the outside, the inside is completely your call. TC Mark

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.”

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
