My dream girl is NOT Ugly Betty!

AFTER years of searching he finally found the girl of his dreams – but not the girl in his dreams.

Former Hampshire student Adam Pacitti spent three years and £5,000 looking for a girl he saw in a dream who looked like TV character Ugly Betty.

But in 2010 he gave up his search after failing to find the woman despite visiting the United States, Canada, France, Spain and the Netherlands.

However, he found cloud nine earlier this year while filming a documentary in Texas, meeting 20-year-old Sarah from Dallas.

Adam, 23, a former student at Winchester University, said: “I was out of money and had given up on the search but then I started filming this documentary and met this girl out there who I have fallen for.

“I was not feeling great when I stopped the search and I had seen people but I always had the dream girl thing in the back of my mind.

“But Sarah has pushed that out of my mind and it’s not something I think about anymore really.”

Adam’s search began in 2008 after he woke up in the middle of the night and drew a sketch of the girl he saw.

He was then at the centre of a media frenzy and received thousands of emails from hopeful women, including a prank which took him all the way to Amsterdam.
