If a girl has been mimicking you then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will help you understand why she might have mimicked you and why other girls might mimic you in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl mimics you? If she does it with a friendly tone while showing positive body language then it would be a sign that she likes you. If she does it with a harsher tone with more negative body language then it would be more likely that she’s either annoyed with you or she doesn’t like you.

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

Why a girl will mimic you

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

In the following sections, I’ll mention a number of reasons why a girl will mimic you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She likes you

The reason that she mimics you could be that she is attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she shows positive body language around you and if she mimics you with a more positive tone.

If she does mimic you due to being attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction around you.

These signs could include:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Pointing her feet at you when she’s around you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Giggling a lot at the things that you say
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she is around you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Glancing at you a lot then quickly looking away or smiling when you notice
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Talking to you with a higher-pitched voice than she does with other people

She does it naturally with her friends

It could be the case that she mimicked you because she does it naturally with her friends.

This would be more likely if she has been your friend for a while, if you both hang out with the same people and if she shows the same body language around you as she does with her other friends. It would also be more likely that she would have mimicked you in a positive way.

She’s annoyed with you

People will often mimic other people when they are annoyed with them.

The reason that she mimicked you could have been that she was annoyed with you. This would be more likely if she mimicked you shortly after you did something that would have annoyed her.

If she was annoyed with you then it would be likely that she would have shown it in her body language in other ways as well by doing things such as:

  • Squinting at you
  • Crossing her arms when she saw you or when you were talking
  • Tightening her lips when you were talking
  • Tensing her jaw when looking at you
  • Tightening her eyebrows together when looking at you

She was just being mean

The reason that she was mimicking you could be that she was just being mean.

This would be more likely if she did it with a nasty tone. It would also be more likely if she did it in front of certain people that she wants to look popular in front of. This is because people will often be mean in an attempt to appear to be more popular. It would also be likely that she would do it to other people as well and that she would show similar body language around them.

If she was being mean then it would be likely that she would have shown it in her body language as well by doing things such as:

  • Squinting at you
  • Tensing her jaw when looking at you
  • Hiding the lips when looking at you
  • Tightening the eyebrows when looking at you
  • Mimicking you with a deeper voice

Consider your relationship with her

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

If she is a girl that you have been friends with for a while then it would be more likely that she was either joking or that she was showing that she likes you. It would help to consider the body language she shows around you and how it compares to when she’s with her other friends.

If it was a girl that you didn’t know very well then it would be more likely that she was either showing that she was attracted to you or that she was being mean. It would help to consider the tone that she did it with and the body language that she was showing.

Think about the way that she reacts to seeing you

When trying to understand the way that she feels about you and why she was mimicking you it would be helpful to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.

If she reacts to seeing you by changing her body language then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction or that she was being mean to you.

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction when she mimicked you.

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she mimicked you because she was annoyed with you or because she was being mean.

Consider how she interacts with others

Comparing the way that she behaves with other people with how she behaves with you will likely help you in figuring out why she mimicked you.

If she also mimics her friends a lot and she shows the same body language around them as she does with you then it would be more likely that she naturally does it with her friends.

Whereas, if she only seemed to mimic you and she changes her body language around you then it would be more likely that she either is attracted to you or she doesn’t like you. It would depend on the tone that she did it with and the way that she changes her body language around you.

Look for a cluster of signs

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

She could have been showing a single body language sign for many different reasons. This can make it difficult to judge what a single body language sign meant.

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