If a guy recently called you his queen then you’re probably wondering why and what it might mean.

This post will help you figure out why he called you his queen and help you understand why other guys might say it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a guy calls you his queen? He might say it because he likes you especially if he only says it to you and if he shows other signs of attraction around you. He might also be joking, being condescending or he might be trying to show his love.

Since there are a number of different reasons why a guy will call you his queen it’s important to consider the context of how he said it and the body language that he shows around you.

By doing so you’ll be able to get a better understanding of why he calls you his queen.

Reasons why a guy will call you his queen

Each of the different reasons why a guy will call you his queen 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 his queen and the body language signals that you should expect to see with them.

He’s attracted to you

If he only says it to you and his behavior and body language change around you then it would be likely that he is attracted to you.

The reason that he might have called you his queen if he is attracted to you could be to see if you would react positively to it because he wants to see if you’re attracted to him.

If he is attracted to you then it would be likely that he would show other signs of being attracted to you in his body language and behavior.

These signs could include:

  • Asking you more questions than he does to other people in the group
  • Standing in your personal space when talking to you
  • Finding reasons to touch you
  • Maintaining prolonged eye contact with you
  • His pupils become dilated when you are around
  • Positioning himself to be near you
  • Mirroring your body language
  • Getting agitated when you’re with other men and staying in the area while you are
  • Becoming defensive when you’re talking to other men
  • Keeping his focus on you when there are multiple people present that are talking
  • Blinking more frequently
  • Looking at your lips when talking to you
  • Pointing his feet at you
  • Sitting up straight when he sees you
  • Adjusting his hair or clothing when he sees you
  • Uncrossing his arms and legs when he sees you

He wants to be more than just friends

If he has been your friend for a while then it would be likely that he wants to be more than just friends with you.

This would be more likely if he only calls you his queen and if he behaves differently around you compared to how he does around his other friends.

If he does like you then it would be likely that he would show signs of attraction in his behavior and body language when he is with you such as those mentioned above. It could also be the case that you haven’t picked up on those signs yet.

It would be especially likely that he would become agitated when you’re talking to other men, that he would be defensive when other men are with you both and that he would make plans based around your schedule.

He’s being condescending

The reason that he called you his queen might be that he was being condescending.

If it is why he said it then it would be likely that he would have said it in a sarcastic way and that he would have said it as a way to sort of belittle you when you were making a suggestion.

If he was being condescending then he might have shown other signs of it by doing things such as:

  • Smirking at you when you’re making a suggestion
  • Not taking what you have to offer seriously
  • He tightens his lips when you’re talking
  • He points his chin upwards and looks down at you from his nose

He’s in love

If the guy that called you his queen is your boyfriend then the reason that he said it could be that he is in love with you.

If that is the case then it would be likely that he would show numerous signs of attraction when he is around you.

He would also be more likely to call you his queen often when talking to you normally.

Consider your relationship with him

When trying to understand why he called you his queen it would be helpful to consider the relationship that you have with him.

If he is your friend then it would make it more likely that he said it because he wants to be more than just friends with you and you should consider the signs that he shows when he is with you.

If it was a guy that you were meeting for the first time or one that you don’t know very well then it would be more likely that he said it in a sarcastic way and you should consider if he said it as a way to discredit what you were saying.

If he is your boyfriend or you have been dating him for quite some time then it would be more likely that he is showing that he loves you.

Consider how he behaves around other people

Comparing the way that he behaves when he’s with other people with the way he behaves around you would also be a useful thing to consider.

If he says similar things to other women and his body language and behavior is the same around them as it is around you then it would be more likely that he says it because he’s being condescending or because he grew up in an environment where they would say things like that often.

Whereas, if he only says it to you and he shows different body language signs when he’s with you then it would be more likely that he is attracted to you.

Consider a number of signs

When observing what his body language might be suggesting it would be helpful to consider a number of different body language signs at a time.

This is because he might show a single body language sign for many different reasons. This can result in it being difficult to figure out what it means reliably.

But, if he shows a number of different signs, in his body language, that can have the same meaning such as attraction then it would be more likely that he really is doing it for that meaning.

Think about where he said it

The timing and location of when he called you his queen would probably be a useful thing to think about.

If he called you his queen when you were both alone together then it would be very likely that he said it because he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he said it in front of other people then it would be more likely that he was being condescending especially if you know them. However, he might not have been condescending so it would be helpful to consider his body language.

Think about how he reacts to seeing you

The way that he reacts to seeing you would also tell you a lot about why he might have called you his queen.

If he reacts to seeing you by uncrossing his arms and legs, sitting upright, watching you as you enter, positioning himself to be nearer to you, his pupils dilate, he adjusts his clothing or hair and if he points his feet at you then it would be likely that he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he points his feet away from you, avoids eye contact with you, tightens his lips and eyebrows, tenses his jaw and crosses his arms then it would be a negative sign.
