"She was out of my league."

What on earth does that mean?

And, who says?

Often, it's simply an excuse we make to help us cope with the fact that someone of "great worldly value" has little to no interest in us.

Heh. It means her worldly expectations are far above what we could ever provide. Or, she is so far ahead of us in faith that we could never satisfy her as the leader of a family... Or... she is just so far ahead of us intellectually... Or... Well, you get the idea.

I've always wondered, too, what on earth "out of my league" is supposed to mean.

Does it mean:

"She/he is not as good as I am"?
OR
"I'm not as good as she/he is"?


Does one of you/us say it out loud to the other and "call it a day"? surprised
OR
Just one of you/us decides unilaterally and fades off into the sunset?? sad

It generally means the latter.

Generally means she is from a different class. Like the dockworker wanting to be with a debutante. Or a gangster wanting to be with the daughter of the police commissioner. Can also go the other way the Ivy League guy and the waitress from the wrong side of the tracks.

I believe it's in reference spring training in MLB. There's Cactus league and Grapefruit league, so if a woman is pulling for a team that's say in the Cactus league and you're pulling for a team in the Grapefruit league, then she's "out of my leauge". laughing laughing laughing laughing OK, OK, I keed. I keed.

OK, in all seriousness.......if that's possible with me. *l* I would agree with the two previous men. When a man believes he doesn't measure up to a woman either in looks, intellect, spiritually, financially, then she's "out of my league". The measuring stick (And, who says?) is based on the man himself, either he feels like he measures up or he doesn't, but I would argue that there are societal standards as well.

I have used the term to describe women who are looking for a man with at least her level of education. It has been my experience that many women first check a man's resume. My failing is that I've always enjoyed the company of intelligent, well educated women. I have taken a few college courses and various military schools but do not have a college degree. Consequently, many women are "out of my league." I've long since accepted that reality and moved on- it's a moot point now.
