For years, the “girl next door” has never really been defined. From Topanga on Boy Meets World to Taylor Swift in her “You Belong With Me” video, it’s an elusive title most women have never understood.
It can be confusing. Women are multi-faceted creatures and all have a little “girl next door” in them, so what’s with men’s fascination with that moniker?
It may be because the definition varies from man to man based on a bevy of likes, opinions, and experiences.
Luckily, one brave soul posted the question, “What makes a ‘girl next door?'” on Reddit and the answers are stereotypical at times, sad, hilarious, and hilariously sad.
Here’s just a sample of some of the responses:
