If a girl recently asked to hang out with you then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will help you understand why she might have asked to hang out and why other girls might ask to hang out as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl wants to hang out? It would likely mean that she likes you especially if she wants to hang out alone with you. It could also be that she considers you a friend which would be more likely if she wants to hang out with you and her other friends as well.

There are actually a number of things to consider that will help you to understand why she wants to hang out with you. The body language that she shows around you and the way that she asks you out will likely give you a number of clues about why she did it.

Why a girl will ask you out

Each of the different reasons why a girl will ask you out will likely come with a number of clues in her body language and in the way that she asks.

In the following sections, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will ask you out, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She likes you

The reason that she wants to hang out with you is likely to be that she likes you.

This would be more likely if she just wants to hang out with you and not her other friends and if she wants to hang out with you where other people won’t be around to bother you both.

If she does like you then it would be likely that she would show signs of being attracted to you in her body language when around you by doing things such as:

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

She considers you a friend

The reason that she wants to hang out with you could be that she considers you a friend.

This would be more likely if she doesn’t just want to hang out with you and she wants to hang out with her other friends as well at the same time.

If she does just consider you a friend then it would also be likely that she would show similar body language around you as she does with her other friends.

She doesn’t want to miss out on something

The reason that she wants to hang out with you could be that she is doesn’t want to miss out on the chance of socializing with her friends.

This would be more likely if she asked you what your plans are and she wanted to go with you to an event such as a party.

However, it would still be likely that she likes you and it would help to consider if she shows signs of attraction when she is around you and if she asked what her other friends are doing as well.

Consider when and where she wants to hang out

The timing and location of when she wants to hang out would likely be a useful thing to consider when trying to understand why she wants to hang out.

If she wants to hang out alone with you later on in the evening then it would be much more likely that she wants to hang out because she likes you.

Whereas, if she wants to hang out during the day with friends then it would be more likely that she is asking because she considers you a friend.

Think about the way that she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you would also likely be useful in understanding why she wants to hang out with you.

If she reacts to seeing you by showing a number of signs of attraction then it would be more likely that she wants to hang out because she likes you.

This means that 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
  • Sitting or standing more upright

Then it would be more likely that she wants to hang out with you because she is attracted to 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.

If she has been your friend for a while then it would make it more likely that she wants to hang out with you because she considers you a friend. She could still want to hang out because she is attracted to you especially if she just wants to hang out with you and she shows signs of attraction when she is around you.

Whereas, if you haven’t known her for a long time then it would make it more likely that she wants to hang out because she likes you.

Look for multiple signs

When considering what her body language could be suggesting it would be helpful to consider multiple body language signs at the same time.

A single body language sign of attraction can also usually have multiple other possible meanings other than attraction. This can make single body language signs unreliable by themselves.

Whereas, if she were to show multiple body language signs of attraction around you then it would be more likely that she is showing them due to being attracted to you.

What does it mean when a girl wants to hang out with you all the time? It could mean that she likes you which would be more likely if she wants to hang out with you alone and she shows signs of attraction with you in her body language. She might also consider you a friend especially if she wants to hang out with them with you as well.

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.
