The word 'pretty' can be used in a multitude of ways. Not only can it be used as a descriptive term for something you've visually seen, it can also be used to describe a felt (mentally or emotionally) status, so to speak, of something or someone. While words like, for example, pretty, ugly, beautiful and hideous are all used at the opinion and discretion of the user, 'pretty' is often times a more readily used and agreed upon term to describe something or someone that is above average aesthetically. Be it an outfit, hairdo, painting, a persons face or a home, if its appearance is above average (but not considered to be to the level of gorgeous or beautiful) in its attractiveness, it could be considered 'pretty'.

As a feeling, it's generally used to proclaim an above - average opinion on something. It can, however, sometimes be used to describe something as only so-so. As you can tell, "pretty" has many uses. These are only a few definitions.
(Adjective)
"Tiffany has such pretty hair - I love its color!"

(Adverb)
"Did you watch that new comedy show on tv last night? It was pretty funny!"

(Idiom)

if a guy says a girl is pretty then he actually likes her, where as if he says hes hot, fine, fit, they arnt going to take the time to get to know her or spend time with her (unless its for a little more than talking) if a guy calls you pretty gorgeous stunning or beautiful then you have one for keeps!!!

Social standards

"Pretty" is being bodily accepted

"Pretty" is having "nice eyes" or a "nice body" NOT having the most amazing personality or attitude towards others

"Pretty" is what makes me hate myself

You don't have to be "pretty". Your already BEAUTIFUL!!!
I'm not pretty.
