A girl could have a pretty face but an obese, unattractive body.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder. many people in my opinion are pretty.

but none are physically attractive to me

There is no difference in my opinion. They are synonyms to each other.

The same as all the other times you've asked.

You can be a butter face and still be physically attractive.

The difference is subtle and of course it's subjective, but my feeling is that "pretty" includes makeup, hair styling, clothes and accessories -- the whole impression.

"Physically attractive" is only about your body, leaving aside all the enhancements.

I base my opinion on runway models. They are very pretty, but too lanky to be physically attractive.

(You can be certain that young men talking to you will not be making such delicate distinctions in their vocabulary.)

Pretty is just looking at it , or satisfying to look at , meanwhile physically attractive is more good to be with . It's the the difference between cute and hot I can't explain it

Pretty usually defines facial features as a whole... like a flower. You find it pretty and that's about it.

Physical attractiveness is more like "yea I can get busy with that no problem". In other words, you wouldn't want to get intimate with a newly blossomed rose but you can still find it pretty :)

Usually if someone says you’re pretty that means they think you’re physically attractive

Few people call a ripped guy pretty.
