If a girl has been smiling every time that she sees you then you might be trying to understand why.

In this post, I will help you understand why she would smile at you every time that she sees you and why other girls might do it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl smiles at you every time she sees you? It is likely a positive sign that she likes you. It would be more likely that she smiles because she likes you if she also shows other signs of attraction in her body language such as flicking her hair to the side. If she doesn’t then she might be doing it to be friendly or polite.

Since she might smile at you every time that she sees you for a number of reasons it is important to consider the body language that she shows and the context of how she does it.

How to understand why a girl would smile at you every time she sees you

Each of the reasons why she might smile at you every time that she sees you will likely come with a number of clues in her body language and the way that she does it.

In the following sections, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will smile at you every time she sees you, the signs to expect to see with them and other considerations to make.

She is attracted to you

If she smiles at you specifically and she does not smile at other people every time she sees them then it would be likely that she smiles at you because she is attracted to you.

It would also be more likely if she also flicks her hair to the side and shows her neck when she sees you since showing the vulnerable areas is often a sign of attraction from women. Additionally, if she tends to hold eye contact with you when she sees you then it would also be more likely that she smiles at you because she is attracted to you.

If she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of being attracted to you in her body language and behavior when she is around you.

These signs could include things such as:

  • Having more dilated pupils than usual when she sees you
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Positioning herself to be near you
  • Pointing her feet in your direction (people point their feet in the direction that they are more interested in)
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Watching you when you are talking to other girls
  • Looking in your direction repeatedly even after you have moved
  • Showing her palms
  • Stroking her hair while she is with you
  • Keeping her focus on you while you’re talking and other people are as well
  • Asking you the most questions when you’re in a group together
  • Sitting or standing with a straighter posture when she sees you
  • Uncrossing her arms when she sees you
  • Looking at you and then giggling with her friends

She is being friendly

The reason that she smiles at you every time that she sees you could be that she is just being friendly.

If that is the case then it would be likely that she would also smile at other people as well when she sees them. She would also likely show the same body language around other people as she does around you.

The body language that she shows around you would be likely to be positive meaning that she would likely do things such as show genuine smiles, raise her eyebrows and have her arms uncrossed.

However, she would be less likely to show signs of attraction such as having more dilated pupils, watching you when you’re with other girls and flicking her hair to the side when looking at you.

She is mirroring you

When a person wants to be accepted by a certain group of people he or she will often begin to mirror the body language that they show. By doing so it will help that person get accepted by that group of people.

If you also smile at her and if she hangs out with the same people as you then she might be mirroring your own body language.

Mirroring can also be a sign that she is attracted to you. If she mirrors 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.

If she does mirror you then she might also mirror you in other ways as well which could include:

  • Standing or sitting with the same stance as you
  • Smiling like you do
  • Showing the same facial gestures as you
  • Mirroring your hand gestures

She smiles because you smile at her

If you tend to smile at her yourself then she might be smiling back at you to be polite.

If that is the case then it would be likely that she would not show signs of attraction when she smiles at you. It would also be likely that she would not make any attempts at getting to know you or to encourage you to talk to her.

Consider when and where she smiles at you

When trying to figure out why she smiles at you every time that she sees you it would be helpful to consider when and where you tend to see her.

If you tend to see her in a more formal setting then it would make it more likely that she smiles at you to be polite. It would help to consider whether or not she also smiles at most other people as well. If she doesn’t then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

If you tend to see her in a more social environment then it could be the case that she is being friendly. Again, it would help to consider whether or not she also smiles at other people. It would also be more likely that she does it because of being attracted to you so it would be important to observe if she also shows other body language signs of attraction.

If she tends to smile at you when you are walking past her between classes then it would be more likely that she is either being friendly or she is attracted to you. If she seems to specifically smile at you and she shows other signs of attraction then it would be likely that she is attracted to you.

Consider how she reacts when she sees you

When trying to understand why she smiles every time she sees you it would be helpful to consider the other ways that she reacts when she sees you as well.

If she reacts by showing numerous positive body language signs then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you especially if they signal attraction in particular.

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

Having more dilated pupils (peoples pupils dilate when they see someone that they’re attracted to)

  • Flicking her hair to the side
  • Playing with her hair
  • Adjusting the way that she looks
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Holding eye contact

Think about how she interacts around other people

Comparing the way that she interacts with other people with how she interacts with you would likely help you in understanding why she smiles at you.

If she seems to smile at other people a lot and she shows the same behavior and body language around other people then it would be more likely that she is being friendly when she smiles at you.

Whereas, if she only seems to smile at you and she changes her body language upon seeing you then it would be more likely that she does it because she is attracted to you.

Look for multiple clues in her body language

When you’re thinking about what her body language could be suggesting it is important to look for multiple signs at the same time.

The reason for that is that she could show a single sign for a number of different reasons which can make it difficult to understand the exact reason she is showing it.

Whereas, if she shows a cluster of signs that all suggest the same thing then it would be a lot more likely that she is showing them for that particular reason.

What does it mean when a girl smiles at you then looks down? It is a sign that she is attracted to you and it would be very likely if she also shows other signs of attraction. However, it can also be a submissive thing to do so if she shows other signs of submission then it could also be that she gets intimidated by 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.
