Are You Called Cute, Pretty, Beautiful or Hot?

At some point in our lives, even the plainest Jane among us has been called one (or more) of the above adjectives, usually by the men in our lives or by random dudes who just feel like sharing their opinions.

It can be confusing to figure out if there's a hierarchy (is it better to be beautiful or hot?), or if some terms overlap (does "cute" mean someone pretty whose personality is fetching, too?). You won't really get any coherent answers to that question, because, as we know, not all words mean the same things to different people, and, for example, not all men think "pretty" is better than "hot" or that "hot" is better than "cute."

But this isn't about deciphering the code of compliments, it's about spilling the beans about which one you get the most. I wouldn't lose sleep over it, but after you answer, tell me how you feel about the compliment you get. Do you wish it were something else or do you wish men would stop labeling you?
