If a guy recently said that he was thinking about you, this post will show you likely reasons why and what would make them more likely.

So, what does it mean when a guy says that he was thinking about you? A guy might say that he was thinking about you because he thought that you were sad, he considers you a friend, you was a part of something else that he was thinking about, or because he is actually attracted to you.

There are a number of possible reasons why a guy will say that he was thinking of you and it might be due to a combination of reasons. However, there are some things you can consider to help figure out the main cause.

What does it mean when a guy says he was thinking about you?

Below are likely reasons why he said that he was thinking about you and what would make each of them more likely.

He likes you

The cause could be that he is actually attracted to you. This would be more likely if he acts differently with you than he does with his other friends and if he said that he was thinking of you in a more sexual context.

If he is attracted to you, it would be likely that he would show signs of being attracted to you, in his body language, when he is around you by doing things such as:

  • Standing the closest to you
  • Positioning himself to be nearer to you
  • Asking you the most questions
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Raising his eyebrows when he sees you
  • Sitting or standing straighter when he sees you
  • Touching you the most
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Looking at you when laughing
  • Telling more jokes when you are around
  • Talking more when you are around
  • Pointing his feet at you
  • Talking with a deeper voice than usual

He considers you a friend

It could also be a sign that he considers you as a friend. This would be more likely if he said it in a more friendly context and if he has been your friend for a while. It would also be more likely if he shows the same body language with you as he does with his other friends.

You were a part of something else that he was thinking about

It could also be the case that you was a part of the thing that he was thinking about. This would be more likely if he said that he was thinking about an event that you was a part of.

He thought you were sad

It could also be the case that he said it because he thought that you were sad. This would be more likely if you were recently talking to him about something that made you sad or you were sad about something when you last saw him.

Consider how he reacts when seeing you

When trying to figure out why he said it, it would help to consider the way that he reacts when he sees you.

If he reacts to seeing you by doing things such as moving closer to you, adjusting his appearance, raising his eye brows and smiling. It would be more likely that he said that he was thinking about you because he is actually attracted to you.

Whereas, if he shows neutral body language towards you and he does not really change his body language when he first sees you, it would be more likely that he considers you a friend or he said it because you were a part of something else that he was thinking about.

Consider how he interacts with other people

It would also help to compare how he interacts with other people with how he interacts with you. If he noticeably interacts with you in a different way that he does with his other friends, it would be a lot more likely that he is attracted to you. Whereas, if he interacts with you in a very similar way, it would be more likely that he considers you as a friend.

Consider multiple signs

When considering his body language, it would help to consider multiple signs at the same time. The reason for this is that one body language, by itself, is not usually reliable. Whereas, if you see multiple body language signs that all suggest the same thing, it would be more likely that he is feeling that 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.
