If a girl recently rolled her eyes at you 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 rolled her eyes at you and why other girls might roll their eyes at you as well.

So, what does it mean when a girl rolls her eyes at you? It will usually mean that she didn’t like what you said. It can also mean that she doesn’t like you if she rolls her eyes at you when she sees you. She might also roll her eyes to show that she thought what you said was silly when you say something boastful.

Since there are a number of reasons why a girl will roll her eyes at you it would be helpful to consider the body language that she showed and the context of how she did it.

Why a girl will roll her eyes at you

Each of the different reasons why a girl will roll her eyes at you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she did it and in the body language that she showed.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will roll her eyes at you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is annoyed with you

The reason that she rolled her eyes at you could be that she was annoyed with you.

This would be more likely if she did it while you were both arguing or if she did it when she first saw you after having recently fallen out with each other.

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 when looking at you
  • Crossing her arms around you
  • Pointing her feet away from you
  • Smiling only at the mouth
  • Avoiding eye contact with you
  • Having tight lips while you were talking

She didn’t like what you said

The reason that she rolled her eyes at you could have been that she was showing that she didn’t like what you said.

This would be more likely if she did it after you said something that was disagreeable.

It would also be likely that she would have shown other negative body language signs when you said it by doing things such as:

  • Crossing her arms
  • Looking away from you
  • Pointing her feet away from you
  • Distancing herself from you
  • Looking at her friends
  • Tightening her lips

She doesn’t like you

The reason that she rolled her eyes at you could have been that she was showing that she didn’t like you.

This would be more likely if she did it when she first saw you, when you made eye contact with her or when you tried to make a conversation with her.

If she did do it because she was showing that she doesn’t like you then it would be likely that she would have shown it in other ways as well by doing things such as:

  • Looking away from you
  • Distancing herself from you
  • Pointing her feet away from you
  • Giving you short answers
  • Looking over to her friends
  • Tightening her lips
  • Avoiding eye contact

You said something boastful

Sometimes people will roll their eyes to show that they thought something someone else said was silly. This could have been why she did it to you.

This would be more likely if she did it after you said something that was boastful.

In this case, it could actually be the case that she does like you. If she does then it would be likely that she would show signs of liking you in her body language around you by doing things such as:

  • Brushing her hair to the side while talking to you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Asking you lots of questions and giving you more attention than she does with others
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • 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
  • Talking to you with a higher-pitched voice than she does with other people
  • Pointing her feet at you

You’ve been too eager with her

Girls will often roll their eyes at guys when they have been too forward. Rolling her eyes at you could be a sign that you were too eager with her.

This would be more likely if she rolled her eyes at you when you showed lots of interest in her early on when talking to her.

Consider the type of relationship you have with her

When considering why she rolled her eyes at you it would be helpful to consider the type of relationship that you have with her.

If she has been your friend for a while then it would be more likely that she rolled her eyes because you said something boastful and she was showing that she didn’t agree with it.

Whereas, if you hadn’t known her for long then it would be more likely that it was a sign that she is not interested in you.

Think about the way that she reacts to seeing you

It would also be helpful to consider how she reacts to seeing you when trying to understand why she rolled her eyes at you.

If she reacts to seeing you by changing her body language then it would be more likely that she either has good or bad feelings about you depending on how she changes it.

If she reacts to seeing you by showing positive signs such as:

  • Adjusting the way that she looks
  • Raising her eyebrows and smiling
  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you

Then it would be more likely that she does actually like you.

Whereas, if she reacts to seeing you by showing negative signs such as:

  • Crossing her arms
  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Pointing her feet away from you
  • Distancing herself from you
  • Squinting
  • Tightening her lips

Then it would be more likely that she was showing that she doesn’t like you when she rolled her eyes at you.

Consider how she interacts with other people

Comparing the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people will also likely help you in understanding why she rolled her eyes at you.

If she also has a habit of rolling her eyes at other people and she shows the same body language with other people as she does with you then it would be less likely that she did it because she doesn’t like you.

Whereas, if she specifically did it to you and she showed other negative body language signs that she doesn’t with other people then it would be more likely that she was showing that she doesn’t like you.

Consider multiple body language signs

When considering what her body language could have been suggesting it would be helpful to consider multiple body language signs at a time.

The reason being that a single body language sign can have multiple different meanings making them unreliable on their own.

Whereas, it would be more likely that she would show multiple body language signs that all suggest the same thing for that specific 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.
