How to Get the Dream Girl (Hint: it's not what you think)

The dream girl is right there on the other side of the room and you can't do anything but stare. Or, you could, but you'd likely mess it up with saying the wrong thing out of nerves and besides, she's talking to the more accomplished, better built, more attractive version of you anyway. So are you totally out of the running? Not necessarily. Your best bet to getting to the woman you thought was out of your league is going to the one place you thought would doom you: the friend zone. Research from the University of Texas at Austin suggests that your attractiveness to a woman you see as mismatched physically can grow in her mind as she gets to know you. Researchers found that people who were fairly equally matched in attractiveness usually began dating fairly quickly after meeting. But study coauthor Lucy Hunt, Ph.D., says not to fear if there is a discrepancy in attractiveness. "The more you get to know her, the more she’ll like you—until you actually do become more attractive in her eyes." And by playing the long game and getting to know her, you also increase your chances of keeping the girl once you two have become a couple. Word of warning from the doctor though: if seventeen months have passed and you aren't seeing any interest or movement, start looking elsewhere. It may not be in the cards. Have you ever dated someone you thought of as a dream girl? Did it live up to your expectations? h/t: Men's Health Do you follow us on Instagram?
