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

In this post, I’ll show you why she might have called you interesting and why other girls might call you interesting as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl calls you interesting? It would largely depend on the way she says it. If she says it while alone with you and while showing signs of attraction then it could be that she was showing attraction to you. If she says it in front of others she might be attracted to you, making fun of you, talking about your personality, talking about your look or being condescending.

Since there are a number of reasons why a girl might call you interesting it is important to consider the body language that she was showing and the way that she called you interesting.

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

Why a girl will call you interesting

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

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will call you interesting, the signs to look for and the considerations to make.

She likes you

The reason that she called you interesting could be that she was showing that she likes you.

This would be more likely if she only said it to you, said it while alone with you, if she shows different and positive body language around you that she doesn’t around others and if she said it in a positive way.

If she did call you interesting because of being attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction when she is around you.

These signs could include things such as:

  • Mirroring your own body language
  • Touching you a lot and touching you more than she touches other people
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Standing closer to you, when talking with you, than she does with other people
  • Asking you more questions than she does to other people
  • Giving you more attention than she does to other people
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Touching your feet with her feet
  • Laughing a lot at the things that you say
  • Making excuses to hang out with you
  • Asking your friends about you
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Sitting or standing more upright when she sees you
  • Glancing at you a lot and quickly looking away or smiling when you notice
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you

She was making fun of you

It could be the case that she called you interesting because she was making fun of you.

This would be more likely if she said it when you were with other people that you both knew, you were in a social environment, she said it after you said something silly and if she said it with a slightly sarcastic tone.

It might also be that she was making fun of you because she was actually attracted to you and she wanted to keep your attention on her. This would be more likely if she was showing signs of attraction when she said it and if she was paying a lot more attention to you than to other people.

She thinks that you have a peculiar personality

The reason that she called you interesting could be that she was referring to your personality.

If that was the case then she might have said it when you were acting in an unusual way or if you both have differing personalities and if you both hang out with different people.

She thinks that you have an intriguing look

She might have been referring to your look when she called you interesting.

It could have been the case that she thought that something that you were wearing looked interesting or that you generally dress in a different way to how her other friends dress.

She might actually have been saying it as a compliment and possibly that she was showing attraction. If she was then it would be likely that she would have shown other signs of attraction around you.

She was being condescending

The reason that she called you interesting could be that she was being condescending.

If that was the case then it would be likely that she would have said it in front of other people, after you made a suggestion and if she said it in a sarcastic tone.

If she was being condescending then she might have shown it in other ways as well such as by:

  • Making fun of your suggestions
  • Not including you in discussions
  • Not taking you seriously
  • Smirking when you’re talking
  • Tightening her lips when you’re talking

Think about your relationship with her

When trying to understand why she called you interesting 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 was either showing attraction to you, referring to your personality or that she was making fun of you in a more playful way. It would be helpful to consider if she says similar things to other people and if she acts in a similar way with them and whether or not she shows signs of attraction around you.

If it was a girl that you don’t know well then it would be more likely that she would have said it because she was showing attraction to you, she was being condescending, she was referring to your look or your personality or that she was joking. It would be helpful to consider the tone that she said it with and the body language that she was showing you.

Think about when and where she called you interesting

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

If she called you interesting, when she was alone with you, then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction to you. However, she might have said it for a different reason so it would still be helpful to consider the way that she said it and the body language she was showing.

If she said it while you were with other people then it would be more likely that she was either joking, being condescending or that she was referring to your personality. She still might have been showing attraction to you but it would be less likely unless she was giving you a lot more positive attention than she was to others.

Consider the way that she interacts with other people

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

If she often calls other people interesting and she shows the same body language and behavior around other people as with you then it would be more likely that she was joking when she said it.

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

Consider the way that she reacts when she sees you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you will likely be helpful in understanding the way that she feels about you and why she called you interesting.

If she reacts to seeing you by changing her body language and behavior in a noticeable way then it would be more likely that she has good or bad feelings about you.

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction to you when she called you interesting.

Look for multiple clues in her body language

When considering what her body language could have been showing you it would be helpful to look for multiple signs in her body language at a time.

This is because a single body language sign will often come with a number of different possible meanings which can make it difficult to understand why it might be there.

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