If a girl recently said that she likes your eyes then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will show you why she might have complimented your eyes and why other girls might do it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl likes your eyes? It would be a sign that she likes you especially if she only complimented you, she said it when she was alone with you and if she showed other body language signs of attraction. She might also have been being friendly, trying to reassure you or she might have said it because she wanted something from you.

Since there are a number of reasons why a girl might say that she likes your eyes it is important to consider the context of how she said it and the body language that she showed.

Why a girl will say that she likes your eyes

Each of the different reasons why she might have said that she likes your eyes will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she said it and in the body language that she showed.

In the following sections, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will compliment your eyes, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she said that she likes your eyes could be that she was showing that she likes you.

This would be more likely if she said it specifically to you and she didn’t compliment other people at the same time, if she said it while she was alone with you, if she’s a similar age as you and if she compliments you in other ways as well.

If she did say that she likes your eyes because she’s attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show other signs of attraction when she is around you as well.

These signs could include doing things such as:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Asking you lots of questions and giving you more attention than she does with others
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Touching your feet with her feet
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Laughing a lot at the things that you say
  • Tilting her head while talking to you

She was being friendly

The reason that she complimented your eyes could have been that she was just being friendly.

This would be more likely if she also compliments her other friends in a similar way often as well and if she shows the same body language around them as she does with you. It would also be more likely that she wouldn’t show many signs of attraction when she is around you.

She was trying to reassure you

The reason that she complimented your eyes could have been that she was trying to make you feel better.

This would be more likely if she said it when you were feeling sad. She might also have tried to reassure you in other ways as well by doing things such as rubbing your back or arms or saying other things to make you feel better.

She wanted something from you

Sometimes people will compliment people when they are trying to get something from them. The reason that she said that she likes your eyes could have been that she wanted something from you.

This would be more likely if she also asked you to give her something or to do something for her when she complimented your eyes, if she is only nice to you when she wants things from you and if she only seems to talk to you when she wants something.

Consider your relationship with her

It would help to consider the type of relationship that you have with her when trying to understand why she said that she likes your eyes.

If she has been your friend for a while then it would be more likely that she either said it because she was being friendly or she was trying to reassure you. However, she could also have been showing that she likes you especially if she doesn’t compliment her other friends and she interacts with you in a different way compared to how she interacts with them.

Whereas, if she was a girl that you didn’t know very well then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction or that she wanted something from you. However, she could also have been trying to be friendly so it would be helpful to consider the body language that she was showing.

Consider when and where she complimented your eyes

The timing and location of when and where she said that she liked your eyes would also be a useful thing to consider.

If she said that she likes your eyes when she was alone with you then it would make it more likely that she was showing that she likes you. However, she could still have said it for the other reasons mentioned above so it would help to consider the body language that she was showing.

If she said it when you were with other people then it would be more likely that she was just being friendly. However, it could still have been a sign that she likes you especially if she shows other signs of attraction around you.

Think about the way that she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you would likely help you in understanding why she said that she likes your eyes.

If she changes her body language and behavior, when she sees you, in a way that shows attraction then it would be much more likely that she said that she likes your eyes due to being attracted to you.

So, if she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

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

Then it would be more likely that she said that she likes your eyes because she likes you.

Consider how she interacts with her other friends

Thinking about the way that she interacts with her friends and how it compares to how she interacts with you would also likely be helpful.

If she also tends to compliment her other friends a lot and she shows the same body language around them as with you then it would be more likely that she was just being friendly.

Whereas, if she only complimented you and she shows signs of attraction with you that she doesn’t with her other friends then it would be more likely that she likes you.

Look for a cluster of signs

When considering what her body language could have been suggesting it would be helpful to consider a number of body language signs at the same time.

This is because a single body language sign will usually have many different possible meanings making it unreliable by itself.

Whereas, it would be more likely that she would show a cluster of body language signs that all suggest the same thing 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.
