If a guy recently said that you’re weird then you’re probably wondering why he said it and what it might have meant.

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

So, what does it mean when a guy calls you weird? It might be that he is attracted to you especially if he only says it to you and if he shows other signs of attraction around you. It could also be the case that he is being mean, doing it to see how you react or that you both have different personalities.

Since there are a number of reasons why a guy might call you weird it is important to consider the body language signals that he shows around you and the context of how he said it.

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

Reasons why a guy will call you weird

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

He is actually attracted to you

If he only said it to you and he changes his body language and behavior around you in a positive way then it could actually suggest that he finds you attractive.

The reason that calling you weird could suggest that he is attracted to you is that it could mean that he has an emotional response to you. If he shows positive body language signs then it would suggest he could be attracted to you.

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

These signs can include:

  • Having more dilated pupils than usual when talking to you
  • He always points his feet at you
  • He looks into your eyes for extended periods when talking to you
  • He uncrosses his arms and legs when he sees you
  • He mirrors your body language
  • Finding reasons to touch you
  • Keeping his focus on you when multiple people are with you both
  • Adjusting his hair or clothing when he sees you
  • Getting anxious when you are talking to other men
  • Positioning himself to be near you
  • Standing close to you when talking to you
  • Asking your friends about you

He wanted to see how you would react

The reason that he said it might be that he is attracted to you and he wanted to see how you would react because he is not sure whether or not you’re attracted to him.

If that is why he said it then it would be likely that he would show multiple signs of attraction in his body language.

If he is your friend then it would be especially likely that he would get anxious when you’re with other men, become defensive when other men are around and that he would make plans based on yours.

He was being mean

The reason that he said it could be that he was being mean to you.

If he was then it would be likely that he said it to make you feel bad and he might have said it to get you to behave in a different way.

If he was being mean then it would be likely that he would show negative body language signals around you which could include:

  • Squinting when looking at you
  • Tensing the jaw when looking at you
  • Interrupting you
  • Disagreeing with you a lot
  • Talking over you
  • Showing tight lips when you’re talking
  • Crossing his arms and legs when you’re around
  • Tightening his eyebrows when looking at you

You both have different personalities

The reason that he said it might be because his personality is very different to yours.

If your personalities are different then it would be likely that you both hang out with a different group of people that behave in different ways and it would be likely that you both act in very different ways.

Even if you do both have different personalities he still might have said it because he is attracted to you or because he was being mean. So, it would be helpful to consider the body language and the behavior that he shows when he is with you.

Consider the way that he reacts to seeing you

When trying to understand the way that he feels about you it would be helpful to consider the way that he initially reacts to seeing you.

This is because it would be a strong sign if he changes his body language noticeably when he sees you.

If he uncrosses his arms and legs, mirrors your own body language, watches you as you enter, positions himself to be nearer to you, his pupils dilate, he sits up straighter, he adjusts his clothing or hair and he points his feet at you when you enter the room then it would be likely that he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he crosses his arms and legs, looks away from you, squints, tightens the eyebrows, tightens the lips, points his feet away from you and tenses the jaw then it would be more likely that he was being mean when he called you weird.

Think about how he behaves around other people

Comparing the way that he interacts with others with the way he interacts with you would likely be a useful thing to do.

If he interacts with other people the same way as he does with you and he calls other people weird then it would be more likely that he has a mean personality.

Whereas, if he changes his body language around you and he only said it to you then it would be more likely that he either likes you and wanted to get a reaction out of you or he doesn’t like you and he was being mean. You should consider if he shows positive or negative signals to figure out which.

Look for multiple signs

When trying to make sense of his body language it would be helpful to consider clusters of body language.

This means that you should look for multiple body language signals that all point towards the same meaning such as attraction or being mean.

This is because a single body language signal could have many different meanings making it unreliable by itself.

Consider your relationship with him

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

If he is a guy that you don’t tend to get along with well then it would be more likely that he was being mean in some way.

If he was your friend then it could be the case that he wants to be more than just friends if he shows signs of attraction in his body language.

If he was a guy that you were meeting for the first time then it could be that your personalities were very different or he was saying it to get a reaction out of you because he was actually attracted to you.
