If a girl blushes around you then you might be wondering why and what it means about the way that she feels about you.

In this post, I’ll show you a number of reasons why she might blush and why other girls might do it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl blushes? If she does it specifically when she sees you or when you talk to her then it would be a sign that she is attracted to you. She might also blush due to being shy, embarrassed, anxious or due to feeling threatened.

Since there are a number of reasons why a girl might blush when she is around you it would be helpful to consider the context of how she does it and the body language that she shows around you.

Why a girl will blush around you

Each of the different reasons why a girl will blush around you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she does it and the body language that she shows.

Below, I’ll mention a number of reasons why a girl will blush when she is around you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She likes you

The reason that she blushes could be that she likes you.

This would be more likely if she tends to blush more when she is talking to you or when she sees you and if she doesn’t tend to blush a lot around other people.

If she does blush because she likes you then it would be likely that she would show other signs of attraction when she is around you.

These signs could include:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Asking you lots of questions and giving you a lot of attention
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Brushing her hair the side when she is around you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Pointing her feet at you when you’re in the same room together
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Laughing a lot at the things that you say
  • Tilting her head while talking to you
  • Glancing at you a lot and looking away or smiling when you notice

She’s shy

The reason that she blushes could be that she is shy.

People tend to blush when they are in a social situation and if she is shy around people it could cause her blushing to be more pronounced.

If she does blush due to shyness then it would be likely that she would also blush when she is around other people as well. It would also be likely that she would show similar body language around them as she does with you unless she is also attracted to you.

She’s embarrassed

People will often blush when they are embarrassed and this could be the reason that she blushes around you.

This would be more likely to be the reason if she blushed after something happened that she might have found embarrassing. It could also be that she did something embarrassing in the past and it causes her to blush when she is around you.

Even if she does blush due to being embarrassed around you it could still be the case that she is attracted to you. If she is then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction to you, as mentioned in the first section, when she is around you.

She’s anxious

The reason that she blushes around you could be that she is anxious about something.

It could be that she was blushing because she was about to present something or she was anticipating some form of social pressure. It could also be that she has some social-anxiety that causes her to blush when she is in social situations.

If she did blush due to being anxious then it would be likely that she would have shown some signs of being anxious such as:

  • Rubbing her arms, face, neck or legs
  • Tapping her fingers and feet
  • Blinking more frequently
  • Coughing
  • Self-hugging

It would also be likely that she would show the same body language around other people as she does around you. She would also be more likely to blush less when she is alone with you since there is less social pressure on her unless she is also attracted to you.

She’s feeling threatened

People will often blush when they feel threatened and it could be the reason that she was blushing around you.

This would be more likely if there was a reason for her to have felt threatened in some way. It could have been that you were in a higher position than her socially, she found you to be intimidating or that she felt threatened by the people that you were with.

If she was blushing due to feeling threatened then she might also have shown signs of being submissive which could include:

  • Self-hugging
  • Rubbing the arms, face, neck and legs
  • Blinking more
  • Looking down
  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Smiling at the mouth
  • Avoiding large movements

Consider the way that she reacts to seeing you

When trying to understand why she blushes around you it would be helpful to consider how she reacts to seeing you.

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you providing she changes it in a positive way.

This means that if you notice that she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Raising her eyebrows and smiling
  • Holding eye contact
  • Sitting more upright

Then it would be likely that she blushes around you due to being attracted to you.

Think about how she interacts with other people

Comparing the way that she behaves around other people with how she behaves around you would also likely be a useful thing to do.

If she also tends to blush around other people and her body language is the same with them as it is with you then it would be more likely that she blushes due to shyness or having some social anxiety.

Whereas, if she only seems to blush a lot around you and she does change her body language around you then it would make it more likely that she is attracted to you. That is assuming that she changes her body language in a way that shows attraction.

Think about when and where she blushes

The timing and location of when she blushes would also be a useful thing to consider.

If she doesn’t tend to blush when she is alone with you but she does when she is around other people then it would be more likely that she does it due to having some anxiousness.

Whereas, if she always blushes around you then it would be more likely that she does it due to attraction or being embarrassed. However, she could still be doing it for one of the other reasons mentioned above. So, it would be useful to consider the body language that she shows around you.

Consider multiple aspects of her body language

When considering why she blushes around you it would be helpful to look for multiple signs in her body language.

Single body language signs tend to have multiple different possible meanings. This makes it difficult to accurately understand the meaning of single body language signs.

Whereas, a cluster of body language signs that all suggest the same thing would be more likely to be there for that specific reason.
