If a girl recently texted you randomly 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 randomly texted you and why other girls might do it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl randomly texts you? It would depend on what she texts you and how. It could be a sign she likes you especially if she texts you in the evening, she asks to hang out and if she shows signs of attraction in person. She might also have done it because she considers you a friend, she was feeling sad or she wanted something from you.

Since there are a number of reasons why she might have texted you randomly it would be helpful to consider the way that she did it and the way that she interacts with you in person.

Why a girl will randomly text you

Each of the different reasons why she randomly texted you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she did it and in the body language that she shows around you.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will text you randomly, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She likes you

The reason that she randomly texted you could be that she likes you.

This would be more likely if she texted you in the evening, she wanted to hang out with you, she texted you something sexual in nature or if she texted you randomly after you hadn’t seen her in a long time.

If she did text you randomly because she likes you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction, in her body language and behavior, when she is around you.

These signs could include:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Mirroring your own body language
  • Asking you the most questions and giving you the most attention
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Giggling 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
  • Tilting her head to the side when talking to you
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she is around you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you

She considers you a friend

The reason that she texted you randomly could be that she considers you a friend.

This would be more likely if you talk to her a lot, you see her around a lot, 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 not show many signs of attraction when she is around you.

She was feeling sad

The reason that she texted you randomly could have been that she was feeling sad at the time.

This would be more likely if she texted you about something that might have made her feel sad. It would also be more likely if she was showing signs of being sad when you last saw her by doing things such as being more quiet than usual, talking with a flat speech tone or self-hugging and making the body appear smaller.

She wanted something from you

The reason that she randomly texted you could have been that she wanted you to give her something or to do something for her.

If that was the case then it would be likely that she would have asked you for something when she texted you.

Consider your relationship with her

It would be helpful to consider the type of relationship that you have with her when trying to understand why she texted you randomly.

If she has been your friend for a while then it would be more likely that she randomly texted you because she considers you a friend, she was feeling sad or because she wanted something from you. It could still be the case that she did it because she is attracted to you which would be more likely if she shows signs of attraction around you in person.

If you haven’t known her for very long then it would be more likely that she texted you because she was showing attraction to you. However, she might also have done it because she wanted something from you so it would help to consider what she texted you as well.

Consider when she texted you

The timing of when she texted you would also likely be a useful thing to consider.

If she texted you in the evening then it would make it more likely that she did it because she is attracted to you especially if she also wanted to meet up.

If she texted you after having not seen you for a long time then it would also be a sign that she did use to like you. It could also be the case that she considered you a close friend as well.

Think about what she texted you

What she texted you would also be a helpful consideration to make.

If she texted you something random then it would be less likely that she was doing it due to attraction. However, she still might have been so it would help to consider what her body language is like when she is around you in person.

If she texted you something sexual or she wanted to see you then it would be more likely that she did it because she was showing attraction to you.

If she asked you for something when she texted you then it would be more likely that she texted you for that reason.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

If she reacts to seeing you by changing her body language and behavior in a way that shows attraction then it would be more likely that she texted you randomly because she likes you.

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

  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Watching you
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Sitting or standing more upright

Then it would be more likely that she texted you randomly because she likes you.

Consider how she interacts with her other friends

Thinking about the way that she interacts with her other friends and how it compares to her interactions with you could also be a useful thing to consider.

If she also texts her other 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 texted you as a friend.

Whereas, if she doesn’t text other people randomly much and she shows signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with other people then it would be much more likely that she was showing attraction when she texted you.

Consider multiple body language signs

When considering what her body language was suggesting it would be helpful to consider multiple aspects of it at the same time.

She might have been showing a single body language sign for a number of reasons other than attraction. This can make single body language signs unreliable on their own.

Whereas, if she was showing multiple body language signs of attraction then it would be much more likely that she was showing attraction 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.
