* In ''A Grief Observed'', Creator/CSLewis's memoir of the aftermath of his wife's death, he mentions having told her once that his relationship with her felt more like his friendships with other men than any other relationship he'd ever had with a woman. She had to point out to him that it's a bit insulting if the highest compliment you can pay to a woman is that she's almost like a man and asked what he'd think if she started praising him for his "feminine virtues". He was convinced.

Often said by the LadykillerInLove. Compare and contrast ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe. Related but distinct tropes include RealWomenNeverWearDresses, MadonnaWhoreComplex, MakeupIsEvil, BeautyIsBad, and SlutShaming. A FemaleMisogynist may describe ''herself'' this way. This trope is one of the most CommonMarySueTraits, although a character described this way (or who describes herself this way) is not ''necessarily'' a MarySue.

* In ''VideoGame/BaldursGateIIThroneOfBhaal'', if Anomen and a female CHARNAME have continued their relationship, he will tell her that she's nothing like any other woman he's known (mostly referring to those who shared [[IdleRich his former social position]]). CHARNAME can hang a lampshade: "I think there's a compliment in there somewhere." Not only is this the less problematic version of this trope, however, it's part of a conversation where he admits that his [[CourtlyLove usual approach to romance]] is useless to express how much he loves her.
