look up any word, like hipster:
When a scarcity of attractive females causes the less attractive ones to suddenly receive additional attention from males, leading them to believe that they are actually attractive.
Guy 1: Dude, that girl over there is a 6 at best, but she's acting like she's the hottest thing to grace our presence.

Guy 2: Yep. It's the Cindarella effect, there aren't any real 10's on campus so the 6's get more attention. Let's just leave while we have our dignity intact.
