If a girl recently asked whether or not you are single then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will show you a number of reasons why she might have asked and why other girls might ask why you’re single as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl asks if I’m single? It would likely be a sign that she is attracted to you especially if she only asks you, she shows other signs of attraction around you and if she also asks other similar questions. She could also ask for a friend or she might have done it just to make conversation.

Since she might have asked you for a number of reasons it would help to consider the context of how she asked you and the body language that she shows around you.

Why a girl will ask if you’re single

Each of the different reasons why a girl will ask if you’re single will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she asks and the body language that she shows around you.

Below, I will show you a number of reasons why she will ask if you’re single, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She likes you

The reason why she asked if you’re single is likely to be that she is attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she was showing signs of attraction when she asked (mentioned below), she only asked you, she has asked you more than once, she asks you other similar questions. It would also be more likely if she also asks you more questions and gives you more attention than she does to other people.

If she did ask if you’re single because she likes you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction, in her body language, when she is around you.

These signs could include things such as:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does to other people
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you or when she is around you
  • Adjusting the way that she looks when she sees you
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Giggling a lot at the things that you say
  • Tilting her head while talking to you
  • Talking to you with a higher-pitched voice than she does with other people
  • Glancing at you a lot and smiling or quickly looking away when you notice

She was asking for a friend

The reason that she asked why you’re single could have been that she was asking for one of her friends.

If she did, then it would be more likely that one of her friends would show signs of attraction around you. It would also be likely that the girl that asked you would talk about her friend positively and mention that she is single. The girl that asked you would also likely not have been showing many signs of attraction around you herself.

She was just making conversation

The reason that she asked if you’re single could have been that she was just making conversation.

This would be more likely if she asked during a lull in the conversation and if she wasn’t showing many signs of attraction around you. It would also be more likely if she asked it to other people as well.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

When trying to understand why she asked if you’re single it would help to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.

If she reacts to seeing you by changing her body language in a way that shows attraction then it would make it much more likely that she asked because she likes you.

So, if she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Sitting or standing with a straighter posture and uncrossing her arms
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Adjusting her appearance

Then it would be more likely that she asked if you’re single because she likes you.

Consider how she interacts with her other friends

It would also help to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with her other friends.

If she also asks similar questions to her other friends and she shows the same body language around them as she does with you then it would be more likely that she was just making conversation when she asked you.

Whereas, if she doesn’t ask other guys similar questions and she shows signs of attraction when she is around you that she doesn’t show with her friends then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

Think about who often she asks

Considering how often she asks it to you and whether or not she asks you similar questions could also help in understanding why she asked.

If she asked you multiple times whether or not you’re single and she also asks questions such as if you want a girlfriend then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

Look for a cluster of clues

When considering what her body language could have been suggesting it would be helpful to consider multiple aspects of her body language at the same time.

She could have shown a single body language sign of attraction for a number of reasons other than attraction. This can make single body language signs unreliable.

Whereas, if she was showing multiple body language signs of being attracted to you then it would be more likely that she really was attracted to you.

If you want to learn more about body language, a book I would recommend would be The Definitive Book of Body Language (on Amazon). It shows you how to interpret body language and understand people's true intentions.
