If a girl recently rested her head on your chest then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will show you a number of reasons why she might have rested her head on your chest and why other girls might do the same in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl rests her head on your chest? It could be that she is attracted to you especially if she also shows other signs of attraction around you. She might also consider you a friend especially if she also does it with her other friends and she shows similar body language around them as with you.

She might actually have rested her head on your chest for a number of reasons and there are a number of things to consider when trying to figure out the exact reason.

Why a girl will rest her head on your chest

Each of the different reasons why a girl will rest her head on your chest will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she does it and the body language that she shows.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl might rest her head on your chest, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she rested her head on your chest could be that she is attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she only did it with you, she has done it with you multiple times and if she interacts with you in a different way compared to how she interacts with her other friends.

If she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of being attracted to you when around you.

These signs could include:

  • Brushing her hair to the side when she is around you
  • Stroking her hair when talking to you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does with her other friends
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Laughing a lot around you
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Pointing her feet at you (people point their feet toward people they are attracted to)
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you (peoples pupils dilate when looking at people they are attracted to)

There are more signs of attraction that she might show around you and I have written about many of them in this blog post.

She considers you a friend

Resting her head on your chest could be a sign that she considers you a friend.

This would be more likely if she also does it with her other friends, she doesn’t show many signs of attraction around you and if she shows similar body language around them as she does with you.

If she does do it with her other friends as well then it could still be the case that she is attracted to you. If she is then she would likely show other signs of attraction when she is around you.

She was bored

It could be a sign that she was just bored.

This would be more likely if she did it when you were both waiting for something or you were both in some kind of a boring situation. If you were, then it could still be a sign that she is attracted to you and it would help to consider the body language she shows around you.

She was feeling sad

The reason that she did it could be that she was feeling sad.

This would be more likely if she was talking to you about something that made her feel sad and if she was showing signs of being sad.

Signs of being sad could include:

  • Having watery eyes
  • Talking with a flat pitch
  • Drooping the shoulders
  • Sniffing

Consider when and where she rested her head on your chest

Considering the location that she rested her head on your chest in could help in figuring out why she did it.

If she rested her head on your chest while you were both alone together then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you.

If she did it while her other friends were around then it would make it more likely that she was showing that she considers you a friend.

Consider how she interacts with other people

It would also help to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people.

If she also interacts with other people in a similar way and she shows similar body language around you as with them then it would be more likely that she considers you a friend.

Whereas, if she interacts with you differently and she shows body language signs of attraction that she doesn’t with other people then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

It would also help 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 make it more likely that she has positive feelings about you.

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

  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Adjusting her posture
  • Raising her eyebrows momentarily
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Seeking eye contact with you

Then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

Consider multiple aspects of her body language

When considering what her body language could have been showing it would help to consider multiple signs at the same time.

This is because a single body language sign can have many possible meanings. This makes single body language signs unreliable on their own.

Whereas, if she shows multiple body language signs that all suggest the same thing then it would be more likely that she is 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.
