If a girl has been making fun of you then you might be wondering why and what it means about the way that she feels about you.

This post will help you understand why a girl might make fun of you and why other girls might do it in the future as well.

So, what does it mean when a girl makes fun of you? If she shows positive body language around you and she doesn’t do it in a disrespectful way then it would be a sign that she likes you. If she does it with her other friends as well then she might do it with her friends naturally. She might also do it because she’s annoyed with you or because she doesn’t like you.

Since there are a number of reasons why she might make fun of you it is important to consider the context of how she does it and the body language that she shows around you.

Why a girl will make fun of you

Each of the different reasons why a girl will make fun of 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 make fun of you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

Making fun of you could actually be a sign that she is attracted to you.

The reason that she might make fun of you due to being attracted to you could be that she wants to get attention from you, to see how you react or because she just wants the conversation to be more interesting.

It would be more likely that she does it due to being attracted to you if she shows positive body language when she does it, she only does it with you and if she doesn’t do it in a disrespectful way.

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

She could show it in ways such as:

  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you
  • Stroking her hair when talking to you
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Asking you lots of questions and giving you more attention than she does to others
  • Standing closer to you, when talking to you, than she does with other people
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Laughing a lot at the things that you say
  • Glancing at you a lot and quickly looking away or smiling when you notice
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Talking to you with a higher pitch than she does with other people
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you

She naturally makes fun of people

The reason that she makes fun of you could be that she does it with people naturally.

This would be more likely if she also does it with other people and she shows the same body language around them as she does with you.

If she does naturally make fun of people then it could still be the case that she is attracted to you. If she is then it would be likely that she would show signs of being attracted to you when she is around you.

She does it as a power-play

The reason that she makes fun of you could be that she does it as a power-play designed to show that she is in a higher position than you.

This would be more likely if she also does it in front of other people, she does it when telling you to do things and she does it with a more disrespectful tone.

If she does do it as a power-play then she might show other signs of dominating type behavior around you.

They could include:

  • Squinting at you when looking at you
  • Standing in your personal space
  • Touching you a lot
  • Putting her hands and feet on things that are yours
  • Tensing her jaw and tightening her lips when you’re talking
  • Disagreeing with suggestions that you make

She’s annoyed with you

The reason that she might have made fun of you could be that she was annoyed with you.

If this was the case then it would be more likely that she would have made fun of you after an argument, after you did something that she didn’t like or if she thought that you did do something that she doesn’t like.

It would also be likely that she wouldn’t have made fun of you in the past and she would have started to make fun of you more suddenly.

If she was making fun of you due to being annoyed with you then she would likely have shown other signs of being annoyed with you as well.

These signs could have included:

  • Squinting at you
  • Having tight lips when you were talking
  • Crossing her arms when she saw you and when you were talking
  • Smiling only at the mouth
  • Tensing her jaw when looking at you
  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Pointing her feet away from you

She is just being mean

The reason that she was making fun of you to you could be that she was just being disrespectful.

If this was the case then it would be likely that she would do it in a similar way to other people as well. She would also be more likely to do it when she is in front of certain people since people will often be mean in an attempt to make themselves appear to be more popular.

She would also likely say things that are not nice and with a nastier tone. The body language that she shows around you would also likely be more negative.

Consider your relationship with her

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

If it was a girl that you hadn’t met before then it would be more likely that she was doing it either due to attraction or because she does it naturally. It would be helpful to consider the body language that she was showing to get a better idea.

If it is a girl that you see often then she could have been doing it for any of the reasons mentioned above. It would be helpful to consider the tone that she makes fun of you with, if she does it to other people and the body language that she shows around you.

Think about the way that she reacts to seeing you

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

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language then it would be more likely that she either does it due to attraction, being annoyed with you or not liking you. If she doesn’t change her body language then it would be more likely that she does it naturally.

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you and that she teases you because of it.

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

  • Squinting
  • Tensing her jaw
  • Tightening her eyebrows
  • Crossing her arms
  • Tightening her lips

Then it would be more likely that she was making fun of you because she was either annoyed with you or because she doesn’t like you for some reason.

Think about how she interacts with other people

Comparing the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people would also likely help you in determining why she makes fun of you.

If she makes fun of other people and she shows the same body language around them as she does with you then it would be more likely that she does it naturally.

Whereas, if she only does it to you and she changes her body language around you then it would be more likely that she either likes you, is annoyed with you or she doesn’t like you. It would be helpful to consider in what way she changes her body language around you.

Look for a number of different body language signs

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

The reason being that a single body language sign can have multiple different meanings. Whereas, if she was showing a cluster of body language signs that all pointed towards the same meaning then it would be more likely that she was showing them for that 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.
