If a girl recently touched your muscles 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 touched your muscles and why other girls might do it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl touches your muscles? It would often be a sign that she likes you especially if she only does it to you, she did it multiple times or on multiple occasions or if she shows other signs of attraction around you. She might also have been teasing you, reassuring you, have wanted something from you or she might do it naturally.

Since there are a number of reasons why a girl will touch your muscles it would help to consider the context of how she did it and the body language that she showed.

Why a girl will touch your muscles

Each of the different reasons why a girl will touch your muscles will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she touched them and the body language that she showed.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will touch your muscles, the signs to look for and the considerations to make.

She likes you

The reason that she touched your muscles could have been that she was showing that she likes you.

This would be more likely if she touched them multiple times, did it on separate occasions, rubbed them, only did it to you and if she did it while she was alone with you.

If she did touch your muscles because she likes you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction with you that she doesn’t show with other people.

These signs could include:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Standing closer to you that she does with other people
  • Asking you lots of questions and giving you the most attention
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Laughing a lot at what you say
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she is around you
  • Stroking her hair when you’re talking to her
  • Tilting her head while talking to you
  • Talking to you with a higher pitch than she does with other people

She was teasing you

The reason that she touched your muscles could have been that she was teasing you.

This would be more likely if she only did it once, if she also does it with her other friends and if she shows similar body language and behavior around her other friends as she does with you. It would also be less likely that she would show many signs of attraction around you unless she is also attracted to you.

She wants something from you

The reason that she was doing it could be that she wanted something from you.

It could have been the case that she was doing it to make you feel like you owed something to her or that you would get something in return for helping her. This would be more likely if she also asked for something from you when she did it.

She does it naturally

Some people touch people a lot naturally and she might have touched your muscles because she does it naturally.

This would be more likely if she also touches other people a lot when she is around them and if she shows similar body language around you as with other people.

She could also still be attracted to you. If she is then she might show other signs of attraction when she is around you.

She was trying to reassure you

It could have been the case that she was trying to reassure you.

This would be more likely if she rubbed your muscles, while you were showing signs of being sad, talking to her about something that made you sad or if something happened that would make you sad.

It would also be more likely that she would have also done other things to make you feel better such as to say reassuring things, hug you or to pat your back etc.

Consider how she interacts with other people

When trying to understand why she touched your muscles it would help to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people.

If she also touches other people a lot in a similar way and she shows the same body language around them as with you then it would be more likely that she does it naturally or that she was teasing you.

However, if she only touches your muscles and she shows signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with other people then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

Consider when and where she touched your muscles

Thinking about the timing and location that she touched your muscles in could also help in understanding why she did it.

If she touched your muscles while she was alone with you then it would be more likely she was showing attraction, wanting something from you or that she was reassuring you. It would help to consider the body language that she was showing and the way that she touched them.

If she did it while you were both around other people then it would be more likely that she was either doing it naturally, teasing you or that she was showing attraction to you. It would help to consider if she also touched other people a lot and how her body language was with you compared to with the other people.

Think about the way that she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you could also help in understanding why she touched your muscles.

If she reacts to seeing you by changing her body language and behavior in a way that shows attraction then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction when she touched your muscles.

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

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

Then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction to you when she touched your muscles.

Consider your relationship with her

It would help to consider the type of relationship that you have with her when trying to understand why she touched your muscles.

If she has been your friend for a while then it would be more likely that she touched your muscles because she was teasing you or that she does it naturally. That is unless she shows signs of attraction with you that she doesn’t with other people and if she only touches you.

If she was a girl that you had only just met then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you. However, she could also touch people a lot naturally.

Consider how she touched your muscles

It would also help to consider how she touches your muscles.

If she touches them a lot, she rubbed them, held on to them for an extended period, squeezed them and if she did it repeatedly then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you.

If she only touched them once then it would be more likely that she did it accidentally, was trying to get your attention or that she was trying to emphasize what she was saying.

Look for a cluster of signs

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

Single body language signs usually have multiple possible meanings making them unreliable on their own. Whereas, it would be more likely that a cluster of body language signs that all point to the same thing would be there 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.
