If a certain guy always says hi to you then you might be wondering why he does it and what it could mean about the way that he feels about you.
This post will show you a number of reasons why he might always say hi to you and why other guys might do the same in the future.
So, what does it mean when a guy always says hi to you? It could be a sign that he likes you especially if he only seems to do it with you and he shows other signs of attraction when he is around you. He might also consider you a friend, do it naturally or he might be being polite.
There are actually a number of reasons that a guy might always say hi to you and there are a number of things that you can consider when trying to figure out the exact reason.
Why a guy will always say hi to you
Each of the different reasons that he always says hi to you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that he does it and the body language that he shows.
In the following sections, I will mention a number of reasons that a guy will always say hi to you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.
He likes you
The reason that he always says hi to you could be that he is attracted to you.
This would be more likely if he only seems to say hi a lot to you and not to other people as well, he isn’t someone that you know closely and if he seems to change his body language and behavior when he notices you.
If he is attracted to you then it would be likely that he would show signs of being attracted to you by doing things such as:
- Mirroring your body language
- Holding prolonged eye contact with you
- Asking you the most questions when you’re in a group together
- Standing closer to you than he normally stands to other people
- Positioning himself to be near you
- Asking your friends about you
- Talking to you with a deeper voice than he does with other people
- Becoming anxious when you’re talking to other men
- Sticking around while you are with other men
- Basing his schedule around your schedule
- Getting defensive when you are both with other men
- Watching you when you are with other men
- Staring at you then quickly looking away or smiling when you notice
- His pupils dilate when he is with you
- Sitting more upright when he notices you
- Uncrossing his arms when he notices you
- Adjusting his hair or clothing when he notices you
- Pointing his feet at you (people will often point their feet at people that they are attracted to)
- Hugging you the more and for longer than he does with his other friends
There are more signs of attraction that a guy might show around you and I have written about more of them in this blog post.
He considers you a friend
The reason that he says hi to you a lot could be that he considers you as a friend.
This would be more likely if he has been your friend for a while, if you have spoken to him multiple times in the past, if he also says hi to his other friends in a similar way and if he also shows similar body language around them.
He is being polite
Sometimes, people will say hi to other people to be polite and this could be why he always says hi to you.
This would be more likely if you tend to see him in a more formal setting such as at work or if you both know each other’s friends.
He does it naturally
He might also have a habit of saying hi to people a lot naturally.
This would be more likely if he also seems to always say hi to other people and if he shows similar body language around other people as with you.
If he does do it naturally then it could still be the case that he is attracted to you. If he is then it would be likely that he would show some signs of attraction that you might not have picked up on.
Consider the way that he reacts to seeing you
When trying to understand why he always seems to say hi to you and how he feels about you it would help to consider the way that he reacts when he sees you.
If you notice that he changes his body language and behavior, when he sees you, noticeably, then it would make it more likely that he has feelings for you.
So, if he reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:
- Adjusting his appearance
- Adjusting his posture
- Facing towards you (especially with his feet)
- Moving closer to you
- Having more dilated pupils
Then it would make it more likely that he always says hi to you because he is attracted to you.
Consider how he interacts with other people
People can, naturally, show body language signs that would normally mean something. This is why it would help to compare the way that he interacts with you with how he interacts with other people.
If he seems to show the same body language around other people as he does with you and he sees to say hi to other people a lot then it would make it more likely that he does it naturally or he sees you as a friend.
Whereas, if he only says hi to you a lot and he changes his body language around you then it would make it more likely that he is attracted to you.
Look for a number of body language clues
It would help to consider multiple body language signs at the same time when trying to consider what his body language might be showing.
The reason for this is that single body language signs can have a number of different meanings. This can cause them to be less reliable on their own.
Whereas, it would be more likely that someone would show multiple body language signs, that all suggest the same thing, 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.
