Girl Of Your Dreams is the second record from country music singer-songwriter Bobbie Cryner. It was her first album on MCA Records.

This disc does share some similarities with the first record; mainly that of the 10 songs, three are self-penned, two are co-written, and the others are from outside songwriters. Two of the tracks are covers: Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" and Dottie West's "A Lesson in Leaving."

The album featured another three singles. The first, "I Just Can't Stand to Be Unhappy", was written by Hugh Prestwood and peaked at number 63 in 1995. The second, "You'd Think He'd Know Me Better", charted as high as 56 in 1996. The last single from the disc, the autobiographical "I Didn't Know My Own Strength" was released in late summer of 1996.
