What is a hottie?

An attractive person

A hottie is an attractive person others consider "hot." People often use it in person, online, and in texts to describe good-looking females, but they may also use it for males.

For example, your friend may text you, "who was that hottie sitting next to you in class?" Or, your brother may ask you, "Your friend Katie is quite the hottie. You should invite her to your birthday so I can work my magic."

Origin of hottie

It is unclear who coined the "hottie" slang term, but it became popular in the 1990s. People use it as a noun to extend the "hot" adjective people use when describing the attractiveness of others (however, it is not as common as it used to be).
