Since there are some different reasons why a girl might call you boo it is important to consider the context of how she does it and the body language that she shows.

Why a girl might call you boo

Each of the different reasons why a girl will call you boo will likely come with a number of clues in her body language and in the way that she says it.

In the following sections, I’ll show you a number of reasons why a girl will call you boo, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She likes you

The reason that she called you boo could be that she likes you and she was showing it to you.

This would be more likely if she only calls you boo and she interacts with you in a different way compared to how she interacts with her other friends.

If she does like you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction in her behavior and body language when she is around you.

These signs could include:

  • Mirroring your own body language
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Standing closer to you when talking to you than she does with her other friend’s
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Touching your feet with her feet
  • Touching you a lot and touching you more than she touches other people
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you
  • Adjusting the way that she looks when she sees you
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Uncrossing her arms and standing or sitting more upright when she sees you
  • Laughing and looking at you to see if you’re also laughing
  • Laughing a lot at what you have to say
  • Asking you more questions that she does to other people

She considers you her boyfriend

Boo is something that girls will often call their boyfriend’s. If you have been dating her for a while then the reason that she calls you boo could be that she considers you to be her boyfriend now.

If she does, then it would be likely that she would also do other things that might suggest that she considers you to be her boyfriend. For example, she might have been trying to introduce you to her friends and family.

She says it naturally

The reason that she called you boo could be that she does it naturally.

This would be more likely if she also calls other people boo and she shows the same body language around you as she does around other people.

It could be the case that she does call people boo naturally and that she is also attracted to you. If that is the case then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with other people.

She wants to see the way that you’ll react

It could be the case that she is attracted to you but she is not sure whether or not you are attracted to her.

This could have caused her to call you boo to see if you would react positively. If that was the case then it would be likely that she would only say it to you and that she would show signs of attraction when she is around you.

Consider your relationship with her

When trying to understand why she called you boo it would be helpful to consider the type of relationship that you have with her.

If she has been your friend for a while then it could be the case that she called you it because she was showing that she likes you. This would be more likely if she interacts with you in a different way to how she does with her other friends and if she doesn’t also call other people boo.

If she was a girl that you hadn’t met before then it would be likely that she either says it naturally or that she was using it as a term of endearment. It would be helpful to consider the body language that she was showing around you to get a better idea of why she said it.

If she was showing signs of attraction then it would be more likely that she was showing that she’s attracted to you. Whereas, if it was more neutral then it would be more likely to be something that she normally says.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

When trying to understand why she called you boo and the way that she feels about you it would be helpful to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.

If she noticeably changes her body language when she sees you then it would be likely that she called you boo for a specific reason.

If she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Raising her eyebrows and smiling
  • Holding eye contact
  • Having more dilated pupils
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Adjusting her appearance

Then it would be more likely that she called you boo because she was showing that she likes you.

Think about the way that she interacts with other people

When trying to understand why she called you boo it would also be helpful to compare the way that she interacts with other people with how she interacts with you.

If she also calls other people boo and she shows the same body language and behavior around them as she does with you then it would be more likely that she called you boo naturally.

Whereas, if she rarely calls people boo and she changes her body language around you then it would be more likely that she called you boo because she likes you. That is assuming she changes her body language in a positive way that shows attraction.

Look for multiple signs in her body language

When considering what her body language could be suggesting it is important to look for multiple signs in it.

The reason for that is she could show a single body language sign for many different reasons. This can make it challenging to accurately understand why she might be showing it.

But, if she shows a cluster of body language signs that all suggest the same thing then it would be more likely that she is showing them for that specific reason.
