If a girl recently bit her lip when she was with you 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 bitten her lip and why other girls might do the same in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl bites her lip? It could mean that she is attracted to you especially if she only does it to you, she does it multiple times and if she shows other signs of attraction. She might also do it because she has something on her lips, she does it naturally or because she was nervous.

There are actually a number of reasons why a girl might bite her lips and there are a number of things to consider when trying to figure out why she did it.

Why a girl will bite her lip

Each of the different reasons why a girl will bite her lip when talking to you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she does it and the body language she shows.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will bite her lip, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she bit her lip could be that she was showing attraction to you.

This would be more likely if she did it when you caught her eye contact with her, if she did it multiple times, she wasn’t doing it when looking at other people and if she was showing different body language around you compared to when she was with other people.

If she did bite her lip because she was attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show other signs of attraction around you.

These signs could include:

  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you or when she is around you
  • Stroking her hair when talking to you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Giggling a lot at the things that you say
  • Watching you when you are around other girls
  • Pointing her feet at you (people will often point their feet at the person that they are most attracted to)
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you (people will often have more dilated pupils when looking at someone that they are attracted to)

There are more signs of attraction that a girl might show around you and I have written about many of them in this blog post.

She had something on her lips

The reason that she bit her lips could simply be that she had something on them.

This would be more likely if she bit her lips right after she had eaten or drunk something, if she has not bit her lip on separate occasions when talking to you and if she wasn’t showing other body language signs of attraction.

She is nervous

Sometimes, people will bite their lips when they are nervous and this could be why she was doing it around you.

The reason that she was nervous could have been that she had some social anxiety. If she did then it would be likely that she would show similar body language signs around other people as well.

It would also be likely that she would show other signs of being nervous around you and around other people such as:

  • Rubbing her face, arms and neck a lot
  • Tapping her fingers and feet a lot
  • Fidgeting
  • Struggling to hold eye contact
  • Speaking at a higher pitch

The reason that she was nervous could have been that she was attracted to you. If she was then it would be likely that she would show other signs of attraction when around you that she doesn’t around other people as well.

She does it naturally

It could be the case that she has a habit of biting her lips.

This would be more likely if she has bitten her lips when talking to you and other people on separate occasions and if she shows neutral body language around you.

If she does have a habit of biting her lips then it could still be the case that she is attracted to you. If she is then it would be likely that she would show other signs of attraction when she is around you.

She is doing it on purpose

On rare occasions, a girl might do it on purpose because she wants you to do something for her.

If that was why she did it then it would be more likely that she would have asked you to do something for her shortly after doing it and that she would only seem to show attraction to you when she wants something from you.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

When trying to figure out why she bit her lips and how she feels about you it would help to consider how she reacts to seeing you.

If she changes her body language and behavior a lot then it would make it more likely that she did it because she is attracted to you.

If you notice that she tends to react to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Brush her hair to the side
  • Adjust her appearance
  • Adjust her posture
  • Face towards you
  • Move closer to you

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

Consider when and where she did it

It would also help to consider when and where she bit her lip.

If she bit her lip when you were both outside then it would make it more likely that she did it because her lips felt dry. If she did it right after eating something then it would make it more likely that she had something on her lips.

Whereas, if she bit her lips when you were at a party then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you.

Consider how she interacts with other people

Sometimes, people will have a habit of showing certain body language signs even when they are feeling perfectly normal. As a result of this, it would help to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people.

If she also bites her lips when she is around other people and she shows similar body language around them as with you then it would make it more likely that she has a habit of biting her lips.

Whereas, if she only did it around you then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you especially if other aspects of her body language are different around you.

Look for a number of signs

When trying to understand what her body language might have been showing it would help to look for multiple signs at the same time.

This is because a single body language sign can have multiple different meanings. This makes single body language signs less reliable on their own.

Whereas, if she was showing multiple body language signs that all suggest the same thing then it would be more likely that she was showing them for that specific reason.

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.
