If a girl recently called you hun then you’re probably wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

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

So, what does it mean when a girl calls you hun? Hun is a term of endearment that girls will often call guys regardless of whether or not they are attracted to them. Unless she showed otherwise calling you hun would not be a strong sign of being attracted to you.

Since she could call you hun for a number of different reasons it would be helpful to consider the body language she showed and the context of how she called you hun.

Why a girl will call you hun

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

Below, I’ll show you a number of reasons why a girl will call you hun, the signs to look for with them and the things to consider.

She likes you

Even though calling you hun by itself isn’t a strong sign of attraction it could still be the case that she called you hun because she is attracted to you.

If that was the case then it would be more likely that she would only have called you hun, she is a similar age as you and that she shows different body language and behavior around you compared to with her other friends.

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

These signs could include things such as:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Touching you more than she touches other people
  • Standing closer to you, when talking to you, than she does with other people
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you and when she is with you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Laughing a lot at what you have to say
  • Mirroring your own body language
  • Sitting or standing more upright when she sees you
  • Tilting her head while talking to you
  • Asking you more questions that other people that you are with
  • Pointing her feet at you whenever you are near her

She considers you her boyfriend

Sometimes, girls will call their boyfriends hun. The reason that she called you hun could be that she thinks that you are her boyfriend now.

This would be more likely if you have been dating each other for a while and if she has been doing other things that you would expect from a girlfriend. For example, she might have started trying to get you to meet her friends or her family.

She calls people hun naturally

Hun is a word that girls will often call other people when talking to them. The reason that she called you hun could be that it is just something that she naturally calls people.

This would be more likely if she also called other people hun and if she was showing the same body language around other people as she did around you.

It could be the case that she calls people hun naturally but she was also attracted to you. If that was the case then it would be likely that she would have also shown other signs of attraction around you in her behavior and body language.

She uses hun as a term of endearment

Hun is a word that people will often use as a term of endearment.

If the girl that called you hun was a family member or a girl that you have been friends with for a while then it would be likely that she would call you hun because she is showing that she cares about you.

If she has been your friend for a while then it would also be likely that she would show similar body language around you as she does around her other friend’s. If she shows signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t around her other friends then it could be the case that she actually called you hun because she is attracted to you.

Consider your relationship with her

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

If she was your friend then it would be more likely that she would call you hun because she was showing that she considers you a friend. However, she could also have been showing that she likes you. It would be helpful to consider whether or not she also calls other people hun and if she shows signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with her other friends.

If she was a girl that you hadn’t met before then it would be more likely that she called you hun because she says it naturally. Again, it could be the case that she did actually like you so it would be helpful to consider the body language that she was showing.

Think about how she interacts with other people

When trying to understand the way that she feels about you it would be helpful to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people.

If she also calls other people hun and she doesn’t change her body language around you compared to when she’s with other’s then it would be more likely that she says hun naturally.

If she only called you hun and she changes her body language when she is around you then it would make it more likely that she called you hun due to being attracted to you if she changes it in a way that shows attraction.

Look for a number of signs in her body language

It would be helpful to consider multiple body language signs at the same time.

The reason for that is that she could have been showing a single body language sign for many different reasons. This can make it unreliable to make conclusions based on a single body language sign.

Whereas, if she was showing numerous signs of the same thing in her body language then it would be likely that she was showing them for that specific reason.

Consider the way that she reacts to seeing you

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

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she has positive feelings about you and that she called you hun due to being attracted to you.
