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

This post will help you understand why he called you perfect and help you understand why other guys might call you perfect in the future.

So, what does it mean when a guy calls you perfect? It could mean that he likes 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 say it because he wants something from you, he says it naturally or because he is trying to cheer you up.

Since there are a number of reasons why a guy might call you perfect it is important to think about the context of how he said it and the body language that he showed.

By doing so you’ll be able to get a better understanding of why he would call you perfect.

Reasons why a guy will call you perfect

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

Below, I’ll mention a number of reasons why a guy might call you perfect and the body language and behavior signs that you can expect to see with them.

He is attracted to you

If he only calls you perfect, he is around the same age as you and he shows positive body language and behavior around you then it would be likely that he calls you perfect because he is attracted to you.

If he does call you perfect because of being attracted to you then it would also be likely that he would show other signs of being attracted to you in his behavior and body language.

These signs could include:

  • Mirroring your body language
  • Standing closer to you than he does with other people when talking to you
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Finding excuses to touch you
  • Asking your friends about you
  • Sitting or standing with a straighter posture when he first sees you
  • Making an adjustment to his appearance such as adjusting his hair when he sees you
  • Uncrossing his arms when he sees you
  • Pointing his feet in your direction when you’re around him
  • Asking you the most questions when you’re both in a group together
  • Staring at you and quickly looking away when you notice
  • Talking to you with a deeper voice than he does with other people
  • Becoming anxious while you’re talking with other men and watching you when you do
  • Positioning himself to be near you

He wants to see how you’ll react

The reason that he called you perfect could be that he wanted to see your reaction.

The reason that he wanted to see your reaction could be that he is attracted to you and he wanted to see if you would react positively. If that is the case then it would be likely that he would also have been showing positive signs in his body language around you.

He wants something from you

The reason that he called you perfect could be that he was trying to make you feel like you owed him something.

If that is why he called you perfect then it would be likely that he would also have asked you to do some kind of a favor for him.

It would also be likely that he would only say it when he wants you to do something for him and that he would only really talk to you when he needs something.

He wants to be more than just friends

If he has been your friend for a while then the reason that he called you perfect could be that he wants to be more than just friends with you.

If he did call you perfect because he wants to be more than just friends with you then it would be likely that he would also show signs of attraction when around you.

It would be especially likely that he would get anxious while you’re with other men, get defensive when you’re both around other men and that he would base his schedule around yours.

He naturally says it to women

It might be the case that he naturally calls women perfect when talking to them perhaps because he has noticed that it normally gets a good reaction.

If that is why he called you perfect then it would be likely that he would call other women perfect and that he would show the same body language around them as he does with you.

He is trying to cheer you up

The reason that he called you perfect could be that you were sad at the time and he was trying to make you feel better.

If that is why he called you perfect then it would be likely that you would have been talking about something that made you feel sad at the time. It would also be likely that you would have been showing signs of being sad such as watery eyes, talking faster, talking at a higher pitch or taking deep breaths often.

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

Consider your relationship with him

When trying to understand why he called you perfect it would be helpful to consider your relationship with him.

If he is your friend then it would be more likely that he called you perfect because he was either trying to show you that he wants a relationship or that he was trying to make you feel better.

If it was a guy that you didn’t know very well then it would be more likely that he either called you perfect because he was attracted to you, because he was being manipulative in some way or because he naturally says it when talking to women. It would be helpful to consider the body language that he was showing to get a better idea of why he said it.

Think about how he reacts to seeing you

The way that he initially reacts to seeing you would also be a useful thing to consider when trying to understand why he called you perfect.

If he reacts to seeing you by uncrossing his arms and legs, mirroring you, holding prolonged eye contact, making space for you, raising his eyebrows and smiling and his pupils dilate then it would be likely that he called you perfect because he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he reacts by crossing his arms, pointing his feet away from you, avoiding eye contact and squinting when looking at you then it would be more likely that he called you perfect for a negative reason.

Think about when and where he called you perfect

The timing and location of when he called you perfect would also be a useful thing to consider.

If he called you perfect when you were both alone together then it would be more likely that he was showing attraction, trying to make you feel better or because he was trying to get something from you.

Whereas, if he called you perfect in front of other people then it would be more likely that he naturally calls women perfect. However, he still might have said it for a different reason so it would help to consider his body language and how his body language was different around you compared to when he was with other people.

Look for multiple signs in his body language

When considering what his body language is telling you when trying to understand how he feels about you it would be helpful to look for a number of body language signs.

It could be the case that he would show a single body language sign for a number of different reasons making it difficult to draw an accurate conclusion based on a single body language sign.

Whereas, if he shows multiple body language signs that all compliment each other then it would be more likely that there is a single reason that he is showing them.

Consider the way that he interacts with other people

When trying to understand why he called you perfect it would be helpful to compare the way that he interacts with you with the way that he interacts with other people.

If he calls other women perfect and he shows the same body language around them as he does around you then it would be more likely that he naturally calls women perfect when talking to them.

Whereas, if he only calls you perfect and he changes his body language when he is with you then it would be more likely that he does it because he is attracted to you assuming that he shows signs of attraction in his body language.

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.
