If a girl randomly said hi to you recently then you might be wondering why and what it means about what she thinks of you.

This post will show you why she might have done it and why other girls might randomly say hi to you in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl randomly says hi? It would likely be the case that she is just being friendly. However, it could also be a sign that she is attracted to you which would be more likely if she specifically says it to you and not other people and if she shows other signs of attraction when she says hi to you.

When considering why she said hi to you it would be helpful to consider the body language that she showed and the context of how she said it.

Why a girl will say hi to you

Each of the different reasons why a girl will say hi to you randomly will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she says it and in the body language that she shows.

In the following sections, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will say hi to you randomly, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she randomly said hi to you could be that she is attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she said hi specifically to you when she could have said hi to other people as well. It would also be more likely if she made eye contact with you first, if she was also smiling when looking at you and if she says hi to you often and not other people that she sees a lot.

If she did say hi to you because she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show other signs of attraction when she is around you.

These signs could include:

  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you and when she is around you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing close to you
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Giggling a lot at the things that you say
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Tilting her head to the side while talking to you
  • Talking to you with a higher-pitched voice than she does with other people

She considers you a friend

The reason that she said hi to you randomly could be that she considers you a friend.

This would be more likely if you had spoken to her before or if you both hang out with the same people.

She might also have said it because she wanted to be friends with you. If she was then she would likely have shown positive body language around you but not many signs of attraction. It would also be likely that she would do it with other people as well and that she would show similar body language around them as she does with you.

She does it naturally

The reason that she randomly said hi to you could be that she has a friendly personality and she says hi to people a lot naturally.

This would be more likely if she also said hi to other people as well and if she was showing the same body language around them as she was showing with you.

She was being polite

The reason that she said hi to you could be that she was just being polite.

This would be more likely if she said it when you both randomly made eye contact with each other, if you see her around a lot or if she said it in a more formal setting such as while you were at work.

Consider when and where she said hi

Thinking about the timing and location of when and where she said hi to you would likely help in figuring out why she said it.

If she randomly said hi to you at a time when it is normal for people to be socializing with people that they don’t know such as at a party or at the start of the school year then it would be more likely that she was just being friendly.

Whereas, if she randomly said hi to you when it wasn’t socially expected then such as when walking past you then it would be more likely that she was showing that she finds you attractive. However, she still could have done it because she was being friendly so it would help to consider the body language that she was showing, if she does it with other people and if she did it with you multiple times.

Think about how she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you would also likely help you in understanding why she randomly said hi to you.

If she reacts to seeing you by showing a number of body language signs of attraction then it would make it more likely that she randomly said hi to you because she was showing attraction to you.

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

  • Raising her eyebrows and smiling
  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Sitting or standing more upright

Then it would be more likely that she randomly said hi to you because she likes you.

Consider how she interacts with other people

It would also help to consider how she interacts with other people when trying to understand why she said hi to you.

If she also says hi to other people a lot and she shows the same body language around other people as she does around you then it would be more likely that she was just being friendly when she said hi to you.

Whereas, if she doesn’t randomly say hi to other people and she does show signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t around other people then it would be more likely that she said hi to you because she is attracted to you.

Look for multiple clues in her body language

When considering what her body language was suggesting it would be helpful to look for multiple signs of the same thing at the same time.

This is because a single body language sign of something such as attraction will often have many other possible meanings. This can make single body language signs unreliable by themselves.

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