If a girl recently asked you if you have a girlfriend then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will show you why she might have asked you if you have one and why other girls might ask as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl asks if you have a girlfriend? It is often a sign that she is attracted to you especially if she only asks you, she shows signs of attraction around you and if she asks you similar questions as well. She might also ask because one of her other friends like you or because she was just making conversation.

Since she might have asked you for a number of different reasons it would be helpful to consider the body language that she was showing and the context of how she asked.

Why a girl will ask if you have a girlfriend

Each of the different reasons why a girl will ask if you have a girlfriend will likely come with a number of clues in her body language and in the way that she asks.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will ask if you have a girlfriend, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She likes you

The reason that she asked if you have a girlfriend is likely to be that she was showing that she was attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she only asked you, she asks you other questions a lot as well and if she also gives you more attention than she does to other people.

If she did ask if you have a girlfriend because she likes you then it would be likely that she would show signs of being attracted to you when she is around you.

These signs could include:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Asking you lots of questions and giving you more attention than she does to other people
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she is around you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Talking to you with a higher pitch than she does with other people
  • Tilting her head to the side while talking to you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Giggling a lot at the things that you say
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Glancing at you a lot and quickly looking away when you notice

One of her friends like you

The reason that she asked could have been that one of her friends likes you and she was asking for her friend.

If this is the case, then it would be likely that she has a friend that tends to show signs of attraction around you and that the girl that asked you wouldn’t show many signs of attraction around you.

It would also be more likely if the girl that asked you also talks about her friend positively when she is around you, if she mentions she is single and if she asks you what you think of her friend.

She was just making conversation

The reason that she asked could have been that she was just making conversation and she didn’t have anything else to say.

If this was the case then it would be more likely that she would have asked during a lull in the conversation and that she wouldn’t have been showing many signs of attraction around you.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you could help in understanding why she asked if you have a girlfriend.

If she reacts to seeing you by showing a number of signs of attraction then it would make it more likely that she asked because she is attracted to you.

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

Consider how she interacts with her other friends

Considering how the way that she interacts with other people differs to how she interacts with you could also be helpful in understanding why she asked if you have a girlfriend.

If she also asks other guys if they have girlfriends and she shows similar body language around her other friends as she does with you then it would be more likely that she was just making conversation.

Whereas, if she only asked you and she shows signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with other people then it be more likely that she was asking because she likes you.

Consider how often she asks

It would also be helpful to consider how often she asks it and what other questions she asks.

If she asked it more than once and she asks you other questions such as what your type is then it would be more likely that she asks because she likes you.

Think about multiple aspects of her body language

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

She could have been showing a single body language sign of attraction for a number of reasons other than attraction. This can make it unreliable to consider single body language signs on their own.

Whereas, if she was showing multiple body language signs of attraction then it would be more likely that she was showing them due to attraction.

What does it mean if a girl asks about your girlfriend? It would be a sign that she is attracted to you especially if she keeps asking you, if she shows other signs of attraction around you and if she asks you similar questions as well. She might also ask because she is just making conversation or possibly because she knows your girlfriend herself.

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.
