A "Girl Next Door" is a character who, it is implied, an "ordinary guy" male protagonist might have known when growing up, and whom he might like without feeling intimidated. She may literally be from the same neighborhood as the hero, or she may just remind him of girls he knew back home.

In simpler terms: the feminine equivalent of an 'average Joe', in terms of looks [[OneOfTheBoys and personality]]. An Average Josephine, if you will.

Girls of this nature will often appear in {{Harem|Genre}}s, usually as the inevitably UnluckyChildhoodFriend of the protagonist, or as said above, the "Betty" in a LoveTriangle. In non-romantic stories, she'll either be [[BestFriend 'besties']] with one of the others, or she may be the CoolBigSis.

The SpearCounterpart, Boy Next Door, is the same, only, you know, male. Often overlaps with OneOfTheBoys. Contrast with HelloNurse and PeerlessLoveInterest. Also compare TheAllAmericanBoy, who might well be her {{High School Sweetheart|s}}.

For the 2004 film, see ''Film/{{The Girl Next Door|2004}}''. For the 2007 film, see ''Film/{{The Girl Next Door|2007}}''. For Numbuh 3 and Numbuh 5, see ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''. Also not to be mistaken for Crystal Bernard's album, ''The Girl Next Door''.

* The film ''Film/TheGirlNextDoor'' clearly subverts this trope, as said girl is a retired porn actress played by Elisha Cuthbert.

* Betty Cooper in ''{{Series/Riverdale}}'', a CW reboot of the Archie comics franchise, not only is the modernised version of the original [[BettyandVeronica Betty]], but she’s [[NiceGirl genuinely nice]], [[CuteandPsycho pretty]], and [[GoGetterGirl academically inclined]].

* Penny from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. She moves into the apartment across the hall in the first episode and that alone gave Leonard some hope that she might become interested in him. She is consistently portrayed as a fairly down-to-earth and friendly girl who helps fill in the gaps in the guys' social skills. Still, as she and Leonard start dating, it's made fairly clear that if they weren't neighbors he wouldn't have had much of a shot with her.
