If a guy recently called you a snack then you’re probably wondering why and what he meant by it.

This post will help you figure out why he called you a snack and help you understand why other guys might call you a snack in the future.

So, what does it mean when a guy calls you a snack? It could mean that he is attracted to you which would be more likely if he only says it to you and if he shows other signs of attraction around you. He might also have been joking, trying to cheer you up or doing it to see your reaction.

Calling a woman a snack is similar to saying that she looks hot/attractive.

Since there are a number of different reasons why he might call you a snack it is important to consider the body language that he showed and the context of how he called you a snack.

By doing so you’ll be able to get a better understanding of the motivations that he had behind calling you a snack.

Reasons why a guy will call you a snack

Each of the different reasons why a guy will call you a snack will likely come with a number of clues in his body language.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a guy will call you a snack and the body language signs that you should expect to see with them.

He thinks you’re attractive

If he is around the same age as you, he only calls you a snack and he changes his behavior and body language when you’re around then it would be likely that he said it because he is attracted to you.

If he did call you a snack because he is attracted to you then it would be likely that he would also show other body language signs of attraction such as:

  • Mirroring your body language
  • Standing closer to you than he does with his other friends when he is talking to you
  • Asking you more questions than other people in the group
  • Finding excuses to touch you
  • Sticking around, getting anxious and watching you when you’re with other men
  • Staring at you then quickly looking away when you notice
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Sitting more upright when he first notices you
  • Uncrossing his arms when he first notices you
  • His pupils dilate when he sees you
  • He points his feet towards you when you’re around
  • Making plans based on yours
  • Asking your friends about you
  • Getting defensive while other men are around

He wants to see your reaction

It could be the case that he called you a snack because he wanted to see your reaction.

If he did want to see your reaction then it would be likely that he is attracted to you but he isn’t sure if you’re attracted to him.

If that is why he called you a snack then it would be more likely that he would only have said it once and that he would have shown signs of attraction in his body language.

He wants to be more than just friends

If he is your friend and he called you a snack then it would be a sign that he wants to be more than just friends with you.

If he did call you a snack because he wants to be more than just friends with you then it would be likely that he would show signs of attraction in his body language when he is around you such as those mentioned above.

It would be especially likely that he would watch you, get anxious and stick around when you’re with other men and that he would get defensive when other men are around.

He’s trying to make you feel better

It might be the case that he called you a snack because he thought that you were sad at the time and he was trying to make you feel better.

If that is why he called you a snack then it would be likely that you would have been talking to him about something that made you feel sad.

It would also be likely that he would only have called you a snack then and not at other times as well.

Consider your relationship with him

It would be helpful to consider the type of relationship that you have with him when trying to understand why he called you a snack.

If he is your friend then it would be more likely that he either wants to be more than just friends or that he was trying to cheer you up in some way. It would help to consider the body language that he shows around you.

If he was a guy that you hadn’t met before then it would be more likely that he called you a snack because he is attracted to you.

Consider how he reacts to seeing you

Thinking about the way that he reacts to seeing you would likely help you a lot in determining the way that he feels about you.

If he changes his behavior and body language when he sees you then it would be a strong sign that he has feelings for you in some way.

If he reacts to seeing you by sitting upright, uncrossing his arms, adjusting his clothing or hair, his pupils dilate and he makes space for you then it would be likely that he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he reacts to seeing you by crossing his arms and legs, avoiding eye contact, squinting, tensing the lips and tightening the jaw then it would be more likely that he doesn’t want to see you for some reason.

Think about how he interacts with other people

When trying to understand the way that he feels about you it would also be helpful to consider the way that he interacts with other people.

If he calls other women similar things and he shows the same body language and behavior around them as he does around you then it would be more likely that he naturally says those things and possibly that he has a more dominating personality.

Whereas, if he only says it to you and he noticeably changes his behavior and body language around you then it would be more likely that he is attracted to you.

Look for a number of body language signs

When considering his body language it would be helpful to look for multiple body language signs.

This is because he might show one body language sign for many different reasons. Whereas, if he shows a number of different body language signs that can all mean the same thing then it would be much more likely that he is showing them for that exact 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.
