The difference between ‘pretty’ and ‘beautiful’

A girl will feel flattered if you tell her, “You look beautiful.” However, she will suspect she is not so good-looking as another girl in your mind if you utter, “You are really pretty.”

Actually, the difference lies in the degree of beauty. A beautiful girl is more good-looking than a pretty girl. So next time, you better use ‘beautiful’ to describe the beauty of your girl friend so that she will feel satisfied and no suspicion is raised so as the existence of another good-looking girl that you think of.
