If a guy recently called you amazing then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that he feels about you.
This post will show you a number of reasons why he might have called you amazing and why other guys might do the same in the future.
So, what does it mean when a guy calls you amazing? It could be a sign that he likes you if he only compliments you and he shows other signs of attraction around you. It could also be that he was grateful for something that you did, he was trying to make you feel better, he considers you a friend or he could say it naturally.
There are actually a number of reasons why a guy will call you amazing and there are a number of things that you can consider when trying to understand why he did it.
Why a guy will call you amazing
Each of the different reasons why a guy will call you amazing will likely come with a number of clues in the way that he says it and the body language that he shows.
Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a guy will call you amazing, the signs to look for and the things to consider.
He is attracted to you
The reason that he called you amazing could be that he is attracted to you and he wanted to see how you would react.
This would be more likely if he only called you amazing, he only compliments you in other ways as well and if he seems to change his body language a lot when he is around you.
If he is attracted to you then it would be likely that he would show signs of attraction, when he is around you, in his body language.
These signs could include:
- 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 is grateful for something
The reason that he called you amazing could be that he was trying to show that he was really grateful for something that you did for him.
This would be more likely if he doesn’t say it a lot and he said it right after you helped him with something or you agreed to. It would also be more likely if he normally interacts with you in a similar way to how he does with other people except for in that particular moment.
He considers you a friend
The reason that he said it could be that he considers you a friend.
This would be more likely if he also says similar things to his other friends and if he shows the same body language around his other friends as he does with you.
He wanted to make you feel better
He might have said it because he thought that you were sad, at the time, and he was trying to make you feel better.
This would be more likely if he doesn’t normally say it, you were talking to him about something that made you feel sad and if you were showing signs of being sad as well. It would also be more likely if he said it when other people were not with you both.
He says it a lot naturally
It could be the case that he has a habit of saying amazing often.
This would be more likely if he has also called other people amazing around you and if he shows the same body language around other people as he does around you.
If he does seem to say 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 signs of being attracted to you, when he is around you, that he doesn’t with other people.
Consider how he reacts upon seeing you
When trying to understand why he called you amazing and how he feels about you it would help to consider the way that he reacts upon seeing you.
If you notice that he changes his behavior and body language, in a noticeable way, then it would make it more likely that he said it because he has particularly strong feelings for you.
This means that if you notice that he reacts upon 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 called you amazing because he is attracted to you.
Consider how he interacts with other people
It would also help to compare the way that he interacts with other people with how he interacts with you.
If he also says similar things to other people and he shows the same body language around them as he does with you then it would make it more likely that he says it naturally and he considers you a friend.
Whereas, if he only called you amazing and his body language is different around you then it would make it more likely that he is attracted to you. That is assuming that he changes his body language in a way that shows attraction.
Look for a number of body language signs
When thinking about what his body language could have been showing it would help to consider multiple body language signs at the same time.
This is because a single body language sign can have a number of different meanings. This can cause single body language signs to be less reliable on their own.
Whereas, if he shows a number of body language signs, that all suggest the same thing, then it would make it more likely that he is showing them for that particular 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.
