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 ''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.

* 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.

* {{Mary Sue}}s commonly say this, usually to establish their superiority over whatever the author considers 'other girls'. Sub-examples include (but are not limited to):
** The gothic Sue who is superior to those ''other'' simpering, pink-loving fashionistas.
** The bookworm Sue who is superior to those ditzy bimbos.
** The humble, true RelationshipSue who, of all women in the world, is the ''only'' one who could be possibly worthy of the chosen LoveInterest.
** The Sue who [[MakeupIsEvil does not wear any makeup]], has never had plastic surgery, or [[UnkemptBeauty care about how she looks]] is superior to those ditzy bimbos who wear makeup and care about how they look.
** The Christian/Jewish/Muslim/Hindu/Buddhist/Wiccan/Shinto/other religious Sue who is superior to those ''not'' of her religion. (Or, conversely, the HollywoodAtheist Sue who is superior to all those who "still believe in magical sky-fairies.")
** The modestly-dressed virgin Sue who is [[MadonnaWhoreComplex superior to all those "half-naked whores" out there]].
** The introvert Sue who spends her Friday nights knitting sweaters at home who is superior to those extroverted girls who spend their Friday nights going out and/or partying.
** The mama-Sue who conceived naturally and gave birth vaginally (and with no drugs or episiotomy) who is superior to other moms who gave birth via C-section and/or used drugs of any kind or had an episiotomy during the delivery, or whose children are not biologically hers, or who used fertility drugs and/or IVF to conceive, or to women who (by chance or by choice) are not mothers at all.
** The GranolaGirl Sue who uses only [[SpiceRackPanacea herbs and crystals]] to heal her (and/or her family's) aches and pains who is superior to those "weak" enough to rely on modern medicine even though it's available.
** The {{Tomboy}}, OneOfTheBoys Sue who is superior to [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses girls who like "girly" things]] and/or have more female friends than male. (Or conversely, the GirlyGirl Sue who is superior to TheLadette.)
** The single ChristmasCake Sue who is superior to all the other women who are in relationships, engaged, or married. (Or, conversely, the married Sue who is superior to all the single or unmarried characters.)
** The career-driven Sue who is superior to any {{Housewife}}, or the {{Housewife}} Sue who is superior to women who choose (or are forced) to work outside the home.

* Some girls say that they are Not Like Other Girls. They may also cite the reason as being that they're not catty, shallow, etc, like all those other girls. May be said to impress a guy. See FemaleMisogynist.
