If a girl recently said aww to you then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about how she feels about you.

In this post, I will help you to understand why she might have said aww to you and why other girls might do it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl says aww to you? It could mean that she considers you a friend. If she does, it would be likely that she would show the same body language and behavior around you as she shows around her other friends. She might find you attractive in which case she would likely show attraction around you. She might also say aww naturally or because she thought you were being sweet.

Since there are a number of reasons why a girl might say aww to you it is important to consider the context of how she said it and the body language that she showed.

By doing so you will be able to get a better understanding of why she would say aww to you and the way that she feels about you.

Why a girl will say aww to you

Each of the different reasons that a girl might say aww to you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she said it and the body language that she showed.

In the following sections, I’ll show you a number of reasons that a girl will say aww to you and the signs to look for with them.

She considers you a friend

The reason that she said aww to you could be that she thinks of you as a friend but she is not attracted to you.

If that is the case then it would be likely that she would have said aww after you gave her a compliment but that she would not have shown any signs of attraction around you (mentioned in the next section).

It would also be likely that she would not show signs of attraction when she is around you and she would likely show the same body language around you as she does when she is with her other friends.

She is attracted to you

It could be the case that she said aww because she is attracted to you.

If she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would have shown signs of attraction when she said it and she would likely show signs of attraction when she is around you.

These signs could include things such as:

  • Flicking the hair to the side when she sees you
  • Mirroring your body language
  • Touching you a lot and more than she touches her other friends
  • Standing closer to you when talking to you than she does with other people
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when she is looking at you
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Watching you when you are with other girls
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Pointing her feet at you even when she is not directly in front of you
  • Touching your feet with her feet

It’s important to note that she could show a single body language sign for many different reasons. If you want to be sure that she is attracted to you then it would be helpful to see multiple signs of attraction at the same time.

She thought that you were being sweet

The reason that she said aww could be that she thought what you said was sweet.

Unless she showed signs of attraction when she said aww it would be likely that she thought that it was sweet but not because of being attracted to you.

She does it naturally

Some girls will say aww a lot naturally and in some cultures, it is common for women to say aww a lot when talking normally.

If she is from a culture where it is normal for women to say aww or she says it to other people a lot naturally then it would be likely that she said it to you because she naturally says it to people.

If she does say aww a lot naturally then it could still be the case that she said aww to you for a different reason. If she did then it would be likely that she would interact with you differently and show different body language around you.

She was being polite

Sometimes girls will say aww when a guy is trying to show attraction to them but they are really saying it as a polite way of rejecting them.

It might be the case that she said aww to you for that reason. If she did then it would be more likely that she would have wanted to change the subject, she wouldn’t have shown attraction when she said it and she might have shown distancing behaviors.

Consider when and where she said aww

When trying to understand why she said aww to you it would be helpful to consider when she said it.

If she said it after you gave her a compliment then it would be possible that she was showing that she considers you as more of a friend. If she does then it would be likely that she would not show attraction around you and her body language would likely be the same as it is around her friends. With that being said, she could have said it because she is actually attracted to you but it would likely show in her behavior and body language when she is around you.

Think about the type of relationship that you have with her

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

If you have been friends with her for a while then it would be more likely that she said it because she considers you as a friend unless she shows otherwise in her body language around you.

If she was a girl that you had just met then it could be the case that she does it naturally especially if she also said it to other people. However, she could also have said it due to being attracted to you or because she was actually rejecting you more softly. It would help to consider the body language that she was showing you.

Think about how she reacts to seeing you

When trying to understand why she said aww to you and the way that she feels about 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 and behavior then it would be a sign that she has positive or negative feelings about you.

If she changes her body language when she sees you by doing things such as:

  • Having more dilated pupils
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Flicking her hair to the said
  • Adjusting her appearance

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

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

  • Crossing her arms
  • Squinting
  • Tensing her jaw
  • Tightening her lips
  • Pointing her feet away from you

It would be more likely that she has negative feelings towards you and that she was just saying aww to be polite.

Consider groups of signs

When trying to understand why she said aww it would be helpful to consider multiple signs in her body language at a time.

This is because she could have been showing one body language sign in particular due to a number of different reasons. Whereas, if she showed a cluster of body language signs of the same thing then it would be more likely that she showed them for that reason in particular.

Consider how she interacts with other people

Comparing the way that she interacts with other people with how she interacts with you would likely help you understand why she said aww to you.

If she says aww to other people a lot and she shows the same body language around other people as she shows around you then it would be more likely that she said aww because she says it naturally or she was being friendly.

Whereas, if she only says aww to you and she changes her body language around you then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you provided she changes her body language in a way that shows attraction.
