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

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

So, what does it mean when a guy calls you wild? It might be that he is attracted to you especially if he only calls you wild and not other people and if he shows other signs of attraction around you.

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

Reasons why a guy will call you wild

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

He is attracted to you

The reason that he called you wild could be that he likes you.

If he does then it would be likely that he would only say things like that to you and he would likely change his body language and behavior when you are around.

If he does like you then it would be likely that he would show it in his body language and behavior in other ways such as:

  • Speaking with a deeper voice
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Looking at your lips occasionally when talking to you
  • His pupils become dilated when you’re around
  • Mirroring your body language
  • Finding excuses to touch you
  • Standing close to you when talking to you
  • Positioning himself to be near you
  • Sitting or standing upright when he sees you
  • Adjusting his hair or clothing when you’re around
  • Asking your friends about you
  • Becoming agitated when you’re talking to other men

He wants to be more than just friends

If he is your friend then it could be the case that he called you wild because he wants to be more than just friends.

If that is the case then it would be likely that he has been showing signs of attraction when around you and that you might not have picked up on them.

It would be especially likely that he would become agitated or jealous when you are with other men, that he would be defensive when other men are around and that he would plan his schedule based on yours.

He wants to see how you’ll react

It might be the case that he said it because he wanted to see how you react since he’s attracted to you but he isn’t sure if you’re attracted to him.

If that is why he called you wild then it would be likely that he would show signs of attraction in his behavior and body language when around you.

He thinks that you have a wild personality

It he might have said it because he thinks that you act in a wild way.

If that is the case then it would be likely that your interactions with him would usually be energetic in a way and possibly that he hangs around with a different group of people than you.

Consider how he reacts to seeing you

The way that he reacts to seeing you would likely be a very helpful thing to think about when trying to understand why he called you wild.

If he reacts to seeing you by uncrossing his arms, sitting up straight, adjusting his hair or clothes, raising his eyebrows and smiling, mirroring your body language, pointing his feet at you, his pupils dilate and he positions himself to be nearer to 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 with you, pointing his feet away from you and tightening his lips, jaw and eyebrows then it would be a negative sign.

Consider how he behaves around other people

Comparing the way that he interacts with other people with the way that he interacts with you would likely be helpful in figuring out why he called you wild.

If he calls other women wild and he shows the same body language around you as he does with them then it could be the case that he has a habit of saying it.

Whereas, if he only says it to you and he changes his body language when you are around then it would be more likely that he is attracted to you assuming that he changes his body language in a way that suggests attraction.

Consider a number of his body language signals

When trying to understand why he called you wild it would be helpful to consider multiple different body language signals at a time.

This is because even if he shows one body language signal of attraction it could be the case that he is showing it for a number of other reasons.

Whereas, if he shows multiple body language signals that all suggest that he is attracted to you then it would be unlikely that he is showing them for a different reason.

Consider your relationship with him

When trying to figure out why he called you wild it would be helpful to consider the type of relationship that you have with him.

If he is your friend then it would be more likely that he wants to be more than just friends with you and you should think about the type of body language and behavior he shows around you and if it signals attraction.

If it was a guy that you were meeting for the first time then it could be the case that he said it because he wanted to get a reaction out of you or because he thought that you were acting in a crazy way.

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.
