If a guy recently asked you to watch a movie with him then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that he feels about you.

This post will show you why he might have asked to watch a movie with you and why other guys might ask as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a guy asks to watch a movie with you? It would likely mean that he likes you especially if he wants to watch it alone with you. It could also be that he considers you a friend which would be more likely if he wants to watch it with his other friends as well.

It would likely help to consider the context of how he asked you out and the body language that he shows around you when trying to understand why he asked you to watch a movie.

Why a guy will ask you to watch a movie

Each of the different reasons why a guy will ask you to watch a movie will likely come with a number of clues in the way that he asks and the body language that he shows.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a guy will ask to watch a movie with you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

He likes you

The reason that he wants to watch a movie with you is likely to be that he likes you.

This would be more likely if he wants to watch the movie with just you and in a location where you won’t be bothered by people. If he wants to watch a movie with just you at the movies then it would still be likely that he likes you if he just invited you.

If he is attracted to you it would be likely that he would show signs of being attracted to you in his body language when he is around you.

These signs could include:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Standing closer to you than he does with other people
  • Asking you more questions and giving you more attention than he does with other people
  • Adjusting his appearance when he sees you such as by adjusting his hair
  • Pointing his feet at you when he is around you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Getting anxious when you’re with other men
  • Getting defensive when other men are with you both
  • Making plans based on your plans
  • Talking to you with a deeper voice than he normally does
  • Sitting or standing more upright when he sees you
  • Uncrossing his arms when he sees you

He considers you a friend

The reason that he wants to watch the movie with you could just be that he considers you a friend.

This would be more likely if he also invited other people to watch the movie with him as well. It would also be more likely if he shows the same body language around his other friends as he does with you and if he doesn’t show many signs of attraction around you.

He doesn’t want to miss out on something

The reason that he asked you to watch a movie with him could be that he didn’t want to miss out on socializing with his friends.

This would be more likely if he asked to watch the movie with you after he found out that you would be watching a movie with people anyway. It could still be the case that he wants to watch it because he is attracted to you especially if he shows signs of attraction around you.

Consider when and where he wants to watch the movie

Thinking about when and where he wants to watch the movie with you will likely help you in understanding why he wants to do it.

If he wants to watch the movie with just you at his house then it would be much more likely that he wants to because he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he wants to watch it with you at the movies with other people then it would be more likely that he wants to do it because he considers you as a friend.

Consider the way that he reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that he reacts to seeing you will also likely help you in determining why he wants to watch a movie with you.

If he reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing his body language, in a way that shows attraction, then it would be much more likely that he wants to watch the movie with you due to attraction.

This means that if he reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Sitting or standing more upright
  • Uncrossing his arms
  • Holding eye contact with you
  • Adjusting his appearance
  • Pointing his feet at you
  • Moving closer to you

Then it would be more likely that he asked because he likes you.

Consider his relationship with you

It would also be helpful to consider the type of relationship that you have with him.

If he has been your friend for a while then it would make it more likely that he just wants to do it because he considers you a friend. However, if he wants to watch it alone with you then it would still be likely that he likes you.

If you haven’t known him for a long time then it would be more likely that he wants to watch the movie because he considers you a friend.

Look for multiple clues

When considering what his body language could be suggesting it is important to look for multiple clues at the same time.

The reason for this is that a single body language sign can have multiple different meanings. This can make it unreliable to draw conclusions based on single body language signs.

Whereas, if he were to show a cluster of body language signs that all suggest attraction then it would be more likely that he is showing them due to being attracted to you.

Why did a guy invite me to his house to watch a movie? It would be likely that he likes you. It could be the case that he invited you over because he considers you a friend which would be more likely if he invited other people as well.

Why did a guy ask me to go to the movies? It would be likely that he likes you especially if he only invited you. If he also invited other people as well then it could also be the case that he considers you a friend.

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.
