If a girl was recently talking to you about another guy 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 talked to you about another guy and why other girls might do the same in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl talks to you about another guy? It could mean that she considers you a friend especially if she also does it with her other friends. She might also be saying it because she is attracted to you to get you to chase her especially if she only does it with you and she shows other signs of attraction.

Since there are a number of reasons why a girl will talk to you about another guy it would help to consider the context of how she does it and the body language that she shows.

Why a girl will talk to you about another guy

Each of the reasons why she talked to you about another guy will likely come with a number of clues in her body language and in the way that she did it.

In the following sections, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will talk to you about another guy, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She considers you a friend

The reason that she did it could be that she considers you a friend.

This would be more likely if she also talks to her friends in a similar way, if she shows the same body language around them as with you and if she doesn’t show signs of attraction around you (mentioned below).

It would also be more likely if she has been your friend for a while now and if she was telling you about a specific guy that she likes as opposed to telling you that another guy was hitting on her.

She likes you (she wants you to chase her)

The reason that she told you about another guy could have been that she is actually attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she only does it with you, she was telling you that another guy was hitting on her without going into the specifics of it and if she also asks you about your relationship with other girls.

If she did tell you about another guy because she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with her other friends.

The reason that she might tell you about other guys if she is attracted to you is that she might be doing it to make you feel like you need to make a move with her soon or she won’t be available. In reality, this may or may not be the case it would help to consider what her body language is like around you and if you actually saw the guy.

These signs could include:

  • Brushing her hair to the side when she is looking at you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Asking you the most questions and giving you the most attention
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Talking to you with a higher-pitched voice than she does with other people
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Laughing a lot at the things that you say

She is not attracted to you

Talking to you about another guy could be a sign that she is not attracted to you. It could have been the case that she was telling you about him because she wanted you to feel like she was taken already.

This would be more likely if she was saying that she has a boyfriend or that she is dating someone and if she did it right after you showed interest in her.

If she isn’t interested in you then it would be likely that she would show signs of it in her body language around you by doing things such as:

  • Squinting at you
  • Crossing her arms when she is around you
  • Having tight lips when you’re talking
  • Pointing her feet away from you
  • Distancing herself from you
  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Giving you short answers
  • Not asking you any questions

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

It would help to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you when trying to understand why she told you about another guy.

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language and behavior it would be more likely that she did it because she has particularly good or bad feelings about you.

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

  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Sitting more upright and uncrossing her arms
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you

Then it would be more likely that she told you about another guy because she actually wanted to get you to chase her more.

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she did it because she is not interested in you.

Consider how she interacts with other people

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

If she also tells her other friends about other guys a lot and she shows the same body language around them as with you then it would be more likely that she considers you a friend.

Whereas, if she only said it to you and she shows signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with other people then it would be more likely that she did it because she is attracted to you.

Consider in what way she talked to you about him

It would also help to consider what she told you about him.

If she told you that she is seeing him, that she went on a date with him or if she asks you about him a lot then it would be more likely that she was doing it because she considers you a friend.

If she was telling you that another guy was hitting on her or that another guy asked her on a date without going into any specific details then it would increase the likelihood that she did it because she is attracted to you. However, she still might have done it as a friend so it would help to consider the body language she was showing.

Look for multiple signs

When considering the body language that she shows around you it would help to consider a cluster of signs at the same time.

She could show a single body language sign for multiple different reasons. This makes single body language signs unreliable on their own.

Whereas, if she was showing a cluster of body language signs that all suggested the same thing then it would be more likely that she did it 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.
