If a girl recently called you funny then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will help you understand why she called you funny and why other girls might call you funny as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl calls you funny? By itself, it would simply mean that she finds you to be entertaining. If she also shows signs of attraction around you then it would be a sign that she is attracted to you. She could also have been making fun of you herself if she said it when you did something she thought was unusual.

Since there are actually a number of reasons why a girl will call you funny it is important to consider the context of how she said it and the body language that she was showing.

By doing so you will be able to get a better understanding of why she would call you funny and of the way that she feels about you.

Why a girl will call you funny

Each of the different reasons why a girl will call you funny 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 funny, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She likes you

The reason that she called you funny could be that she is attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she said it when doing something such hitting you on the arm after you teased her, if she said it in a positive way and if she shows positive body language around you that she doesn’t show around her other friend’s.

If she did call you funny because she’s attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of being attracted to you in her body language and behavior when around you.

These signs could include:

  • Mirroring your own body language
  • Holding prolonged eye contact
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Paying a lot of attention to you
  • Asking you more questions than she does to other people
  • Standing closer to you, when talking to you, than she does with other people
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Touching your feet with her feet
  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you’re laughing
  • Laughing a lot at the things that you say
  • Asking your friends about you
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you

She was being disrespectful

The reason that she called you funny could have been that she was being disrespectful.

This would be more likely if she said it when you were with other people, after you had said something she considered to be weird and if she said it in a way that makes you appear to be of a lower status than her. It would also be likely that she would only say things like it when she is in front of certain people and not when she is alone with you.

She was showing that she considers you a friend

Calling you funny could have been a sign that she considers you a friend.

This would be more likely if she said it when you made fun of yourself in a self-deprecating way and if she shows similar body language around you as she does with her other friends. It would also be less likely that she would show signs of attraction when she is around you.

She finds you to be entertaining

The reason that she said it could simply be that you make her laugh and she thinks that you’re funny.

If that is the case then it would be likely that she would laugh and smile a lot when she is around you. She may or may not be attracted to you as well and it would be necessary to consider the body language that she shows when she is around you.

Consider your relationship with her

When trying to understand why she called you funny 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 would be more likely that she said it because she considers you a friend, because she finds you funny or because she is actually attracted to you. It would be helpful to consider the way that she said it and to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with her other friends at well.

If she wasn’t your friend then it would be more likely that she said it because she was showing attraction or because she was being disrespectful. It would be helpful to consider the way that she said it and the body language that she was showing you.

Think about when and where she called you funny

The timing and location of where she called you funny would also be a useful thing to consider.

If she called you funny while you were alone together it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you especially if she did it while play hitting you and showing other signs of attraction.

Whereas, if she called you funny while you were with other people then she could have said it due to being disrespectful, saying it because she finds you entertaining or she could have said it for a different reason. It would be necessary to consider the way that she called you funny and the body language she was showing.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

Thinking about the way that she reacts to seeing you would likely be a useful thing to do when trying to understand why she called you funny.

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language then it would make it more likely that she has good or bad feelings about you.

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you and that she called you funny because of being attracted to you.

Think about how she interacts with other people

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

If she also calls other people similar things and she shows the same body language around other people as she shows around you then it would be more likely that she said it because she considers you a friend.

Whereas, if she only says things like that to you and she changes her behavior and body language around you then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction to you. That is assuming that she changes her body language in a way that shows attraction.

Look for a number of signs in her body language

When considering what her body language could have been suggesting it would be helpful to look for a number of signs of the same thing.

A single body language sign can have multiple different meanings making it difficult to tell why it is there.

Whereas, a cluster of body language signs that all suggest the same meaning would likely be there for that meaning.

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.
