If a girl recently kissed you on the forehead then you might be wondering why she did it and what it means about the way that she feels about you.

In this post, I will help you understand why she kissed you on the forehead and why other girls might kiss your forehead in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl kisses your forehead? It would likely mean that she likes you especially if she did it when neither of you was sad, she was showing positive body language towards you and you were alone together. It could also be that she did it to reassure you if you were sad at the time or that she was trying to show that she cares about you.

Since she might kiss your forehead for a number of reasons it would be helpful to consider the body language that she was showing and the context of how she did it.

Why a girl will kiss your forehead

Each of the different reasons why a girl will kiss your forehead will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she did it and the body language that she showed.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will kiss your forehead and the signs to look for with them.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she kissed you on the forehead could be that she was showing that she is attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she did it when neither of you was sad, when you were both alone together and if she showed other signs of attraction.

If she kissed your forehead when you were with other people then it could be that she was being friendly. However, it could still be the case that she was showing attraction to you especially if she only does things like that with you.

If she did kiss your forehead because she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction in her body language around you.

These signs could include things such as:

  • Mirroring your own body language
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she notices you
  • Always pointing her feet in your direction when you are around
  • Touching you more than she touches her other friend’s
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Touching your feet with her feet
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Watching you when you are with other girls
  • Glancing at you often and quickly looking away or smiling when you notice
  • Stroking her hair when talking to you
  • Standing or sitting more upright when she sees you
  • Asking you the most questions when you are in a group together

She is trying to reassure you

The reason that she kissed you on the forehead could be that she was trying to make you feel better.

This would be more likely if she did it when you were talking to her about something that made you feel sad or if you were showing signs of being sad. These signs could have included watery eyes, talking less, talking with a flat pitch, inhaling quickly through the nose or taking deeper breaths. It would also be likely that she would have done other things to reassure you such as to rub your back or arms.

If she did kiss you on the forehead then it would also be likely that she would only have done it then and not at other times as well.

She is showing her love

If you have known her for a while or she is actually your girlfriend then it could be the case that she was showing that she loves you.

This would also be more likely if she did it when you were alone together or when she was saying goodbye to you.

If you haven’t known her for long then it wouldn’t be likely that she would kiss your forehead for this reason and more likely that she was showing attraction to you.

She wanted to see your reaction

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

This could have caused her to kiss your forehead to show you that she likes you and to see if you would react positively. This would be more likely if she also showed other body language signs of attraction around you and she only did it to you.

Consider the type of relationship that you have with her

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

If you have been friends with her for a while then it would be more likely that she was either trying to reassure you or she was being friendly and showing that she cares about you. However, she could still have done it to show that she is attracted to you which would be more likely if she shows it in her body language and she only does things like that with you.

If it was a girl that you hadn’t known for very long then it would be more likely that she kissed your forehead because she was showing attraction to you.

Think about when and where she kissed your forehead

The timing and location of when she kissed you on the forehead would also be a useful thing to consider.

If she kissed you on the forehead then it would be more likely that she was either showing attraction to you or she was trying to reassure you. It would help to consider the body language that she was showing to get a better idea of why.

If she did it when you were with other people then it would be more likely that she was being friendly. But, she could have done it because she was showing that she was attracted to you if she only did it with you and she showed it in her body language and behavior.

Think about the way that she tends to react when she sees you

When trying to understand how she feels about you and why she kissed your forehead it would help to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.

If she changes her body language and behavior in a noticeable way when she sees you then it would make it more likely that she is attracted to you assuming that she changes it in a way that shows attraction.

This means that if you notice that she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Raising her eyebrows and smiling
  • Flicking her hair to the side
  • Holding eye contact with you
  • Having more dilated pupils
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Standing or sitting upright
  • Adjusting her appearance

Then it would be more likely that she kissed you on the forehead because she was showing attraction to you.

Consider how she interacts with other people

It would also be helpful to compare the way that she interacts with her other friends with how she interacts with you.

If she also does similar things with her other friends and she shows similar body language around them then it would be more likely that she was being friendly when she kissed you on the forehead.

Whereas, if she only does things like kissing your forehead to you and she shows different body language and behavior around you compared to when she is with her other friends it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

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.
