If a girl was recently kept touching you 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 kept touching you and why other girls might do it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl keeps touching you? If she shows positive body language signs, she only does it to you or she does it more when you’re alone with her then it would be likely that she is attracted to you. She might also do it because she wants your attention, she’s trying to emphasize a point or she might do it with everyone naturally.

Since there are a number of different reasons why she might have been touching you a lot it is important to consider the context of how she did it and the body language that she was showing around you.

Why a girl will keep touching you

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

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

She is attracted to you

The reason that she was constantly touching you could be that she was showing attraction to you.

This would be more likely if she only touched you a lot, she was touching more intimate areas and if she did it when you were alone together or when you were not with other people you both knew at the time.

If she did keep touching you because she was attracted to you then it would be likely that she would have shown signs of attraction around you.

These signs can include:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having more dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Positioning herself to be near you
  • Mirroring your own body language
  • Laughing at what you have to say
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Touching your feet with her feet
  • Flicking her hair to the side when she sees you
  • Stroking her hair when talking to you
  • Tilting her head when talking to you
  • Asking you the most questions when you are in a group together
  • Sitting or standing more upright when she sees you
  • Looking at you a lot and watching you when you are with other girls

She wants your attention

It could be the case that she kept touching you because she was trying to get your attention.

This would be more likely if she kept touching you when your attention was focused elsewhere, she told or asked you something as soon as you gave her your attention and she stopped touching you when you did.

She is trying to emphasize what she is saying

If she kept touching you only when she was talking then it could be the case that she was trying to keep your attention on her and to emphasize what she was trying to say.

This would be more likely if she was also telling you about something that made her feel emotional, if she rushed over to tell you what she was saying and if she was showing other signs of trying to emphasize her points.

These signs could have included:

  • Looking at you with wide-open eyes
  • Leaning in at you
  • Having her mouth open when she was waiting for you to reply
  • Talking to you more quickly and more loudly

She does it naturally

It could be the case that she was touching you a lot because she does it naturally.

If she that is why she kept touching you then it would be likely that she would tend to touch other people a lot when talking to them as well. It would also be likely that she would show the same body language and behavior around other people as she does with you.

It could be the case that she does touch people a lot naturally but she is also attracted to you. In that case, she might touch you in a slightly different way and she would likely show other signs of attraction that she doesn’t show around other people.

It’s normal in her culture

In some cultures, it is normal to touch a lot when talking.

If she is from one of these cultures then it could be that she touched you a lot because it’s how she is used to talking with people.

Again, even if she is from one of these cultures it could still be the case that she is attracted to you if she also showed it in other ways.

She wanted to see your reaction

It could be the case that she was attracted to you but she wasn’t sure whether or not you were attracted to her.

If that was the case then she might have kept touching you because she wanted to see whether or not you would react positively. If it is why she did it then it would be likely that she would also have shown signs of attraction in her body language when doing it.

Consider when and where she touches you

When trying to understand why she kept touching you it would be helpful to consider the timing and location of when she did it.

If she was touching you a lot when she was alone with you but she didn’t when you were around other people then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction to you.

Whereas, if she was touching you a lot when you were with other people then it could be the case that she does it naturally especially if she was touching other people a lot as well. If she only touched you then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction or trying to get your attention.

Consider the way that she reacts to seeing you

It would also be helpful to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you when trying to understand the way that she feels about you and why she was touching you.

If she reacts to seeing you by changing her body language and behavior noticeably then it would be more likely that she has feelings for you that depends on the way that she changes it.

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

  • Holding eye contact with you
  • Having more dilated pupils
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Flicking her hair to the side

Then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction to you when she kept touching you.

Consider whether or not she touches other people a lot

When trying to understand why she kept touching you it would be helpful to consider the way that she interacts with other people.

If she interacts with other people in the same way that she does with you where she touches them a lot and she shows the same body language around them then it would be more likely that she touches people a lot naturally.

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

Think about multiple aspects of her body language

When considering what her body language was showing it would be helpful to consider multiple aspects of it at a time.

This is because she might have been showing one body language sign for many different reasons making it hard to accurately tell why she was showing it.

Whereas, if she showed a cluster of signs that all suggested the same thing then it would be more likely that she was showing them for that specific reason.
