If a girl recently wanted to walk with 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 why she might have wanted to walk with you and why other girls might want to walk with you in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl wants to walk with you? If she wanted to walk with you alone then it would be a sign that she likes you. However, she might also have wanted to do it because she felt unsafe by herself. She could also have wanted to walk with you because she considers you a friend.

Since there are a number of reasons why a girl might want to walk with you it is important to consider the context of how she wanted to do it and the body language that she shows around you.

Why a girl will want to walk with you

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

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will want to walk with you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she wanted to walk with you could be that she is attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she only wanted to walk with you and no one else, if she was walking very close to you and if she wanted to walk with you to a location where she would be alone with you.

If she did want to walk with you because she likes you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction in her body language when she is around you.

These signs could include doing things such as:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Asking you the most questions and giving you the most attention
  • Glancing at you a lot and quickly looking away or smiling when you notice
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is in the same area as you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Laughing a lot at the things that you say
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she is around you
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Tilting her head while talking to you
  • Sitting or standing more upright when she sees you

She considers you a friend

The reason that she wanted to walk with you could have just been that she considers you a friend.

This would be more likely if she also asked her other friends to walk with her as well and if she shows the same body language around her other friends as she does with you. It would also be more likely if she doesn’t show many signs of attraction when she is around you and if she has been your friend for a while now.

She doesn’t feel safe

Often girls will want to walk with a guy that they know in situations where they feel unsafe such as when walking home at night. The reason that she wanted to walk with you could have been that she felt unsafe.

This would be more likely if she wanted to walk with you in an uncertain situation and if she didn’t show many signs of attraction when she was with you.

It could still be the case that she was showing attraction to you which would be more likely if she specifically asked you when she could have asked other guys and if she showed other signs of attraction when she asked.

Consider when and where she wanted to walk with you

Considering the timing and the location of when and where she wanted to walk with you would likely help you in understanding why she wanted to do it.

If she wanted to walk with you at night then it would make it more likely that she wanted to do it because she felt unsafe. However, she still might have been showing attraction to you depending on how close she walked to you, if she wanted you to go somewhere where she would be alone with you and if she specifically asked you.

Whereas, if she wanted to walk with you during the day such as when you were at school or work then it would be more likely that she either wanted to do it because she considers you a friend or she likes you. It would help to consider the body language that she shows when she is around you.

Think about the way that she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you would also likely help you understand why she wanted to walk with you.

If she reacts to seeing you by showing a number of body language signs of attraction then it would make it much more likely that she wanted to do it due to being attracted to you.

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

  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Sitting or standing more upright and uncrossing her arms
  • Holding eye contact with you

Then it would be more likely that she wanted to walk with you due to being attracted to you.

Consider how she interacts with her other friends

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

If she also asks her other friends with her as well at similar times and she walks with them to the same place as with you then it would be more likely that she wanted to walk with you because she considers you a friend.

Whereas, if she only ever asks you to walk with her and she shows other signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with her other friends then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction to you.

Consider the type of relationship that you have with her

It would also help to consider the type of relationship that you have with her.

If you have been friends with her for a while then it would be more likely that she either wanted to walk with you because she considers you a friend or because she felt unsafe. However, she still might have wanted to do it because she was attracted to you and it would help to consider the things mentioned above.

If you haven’t known her for very long then it would make it more likely that she was showing that she likes you.

Consider clusters of body language signs

When trying to understand what her body language could have been suggesting it would be important to consider multiple aspects of it at a time.

This is because she could have been showing a single body language sign of attraction for a number of different reasons other than attraction. This can make single body language signs unreliable.

Whereas, if she was showing a cluster of body language signs that all suggested attraction then it would be more likely that she really was showing attraction to 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.
