If a girl recently vented to 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 a number of reasons why she might have vented to you and why other girls might do it as well in the future.
So, what does it mean when a girl vents to you? It could mean that she considers you a friend especially if she acts in a similar way around her other friends as with you. She might also have been showing that she likes you if she showed other signs of attraction. She might also have been feeling sad at the time.
There are actually a number of reasons why a girl might vent to you and there are a number of things that you can consider when trying to figure out why she did it.
Why a girl will vent to you
Each of the different reasons why she vents to you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she does it and the body language that she shows.
Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will vent to you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.
She likes you
Venting to you would not normally be a strong sign that she is attracted to you. However, sometimes it can be.
The reason that venting to you can suggest that she is attracted to you is that it suggests that she is opening up to you and that she hopes that it will help get you to feel more comfortable around her and to like her more.
It would be more likely that she was venting to you because she likes you if she only did it with you and if she shows different body language around you compared to when she is around her other friends.
If she was venting to you because she likes you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction when she is around you.
These signs can include:
- Brushing her hair to the side when she is around you
- Touching you a lot
- Standing closer to you than she does with other people
- Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
- Giggling a lot at the things that you say
- Pointing her feet at you (people point their feet at people that they are attracted to)
- Glancing at you a lot
- Holding prolonged eye contact with you
- Stroking her hair when talking to you
- Having dilated pupils when looking at you (peoples pupils become more dilated when looking at someone that they are attracted to)
- Watching you when you are around other girls
- Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
There are many more signs of attraction that a girl might show you and I have written about many of them in this blog post.
She considers you a friend
Venting to you is likely to be a sign that she considers you a friend.
It would be more likely that she was venting to you because she considers you a friend if she also interacts with her other friends in a similar way and if she shows similar body language around them as she does with you.
If she does also vent to her other friends then it could still be the case that she is attracted to you. If she is then she would likely show some signs of attraction when she is around you that she doesn’t with her other friends.
She was feeling sad
The reason that she was venting to you could have been that she was feeling sad.
This would be more likely if she was venting to you about something that would make her feel sad and if she was showing signs of being sad when she did it.
Signs of being sad might have included:
- Having watery eyes
- Sniffing a lot
- Drooping the shoulders
- Speaking with a monotone pitch
She does it naturally
It might be the case that she is the type of person that has a tendency to vent a lot.
If she is then you would likely often see her interacting with other people in a similar way.
If it is the case that she naturally vents a lot then it would be likely that she would do it even with people that she doesn’t know very well. So, even if you hadn’t known her for long she might have vented to you because she does it naturally.
It could be the case that she does vent with people naturally but she does it to you because she is attracted to you. If she does then she would likely show some signs of attraction as discussed here.
Consider the way that she reacts to seeing you
When trying to figure out why she was venting to you and how she feels about you it would help to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.
If she noticeably changes her body language and behavior when she sees you then it would make it more likely that she has positive feelings about you.
This means that if she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:
- Brushing her hair to the side
- Adjusting her appearance
- Raising her eyebrows and smiling
- Facing towards you
- Adjusting her posture
Then it would make it more likely that she is attracted to you.
Consider how she interacts with other people
People can show certain body language signs naturally. This means that certain body language signs that might normally suggest something might not if the person shows that body language sign naturally.
This is why it would help to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people.
If she also shows the same body language around other people as she does around you then it would be more likely that she considers you a friend.
If her body language is different around you compared to when she is around other people then it would make it more likely that she is attracted to you. That is assuming that she changes it in a way that shows attraction.
Consider multiple aspects of her body language
When considering what her body language is showing, looking for multiple body language signs that all suggest the same thing would be helpful.
This is because a person might show a single body language sign for many different reasons. This can make single body language signs unreliable on their own.
Whereas, if someone shows multiple body language signs, that all suggest the same thing, then it would be more likely that they are showing them for that 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.
