Phenomenon that occurs when seeing a person from a great distance. At such great distances the person has the potential for being attractive, but upon closer inspection is plain haggard. AKA "DDF".
Synonymous with "Fifty Yard Fakeout" and "Good from far but far from good".
"Hey Mike check out that blonde chick up there."
After passing without talking to her, "Wow that was a serious Distance Distortion Factor".
