What does it mean when a guy texts haha?

Below are likely reasons why a guy will text “haha” and what would make each of them more likely.

He found something funny

If he texted you “haha” when you told him a joke or about something that happened that was funny, the most likely reason why he texted you “haha” is that he was showing you that he found it funny.

He does not know what else to say

If he only texted you “haha” and he did not follow up with something else, it could also be the case that he did not know what else to say or that he does not want to continue the conversation. It would be more likely that he did not want to continue the conversation if he was taking a long time to reply to your messages, he was not trying to continue the conversation and he was giving you lots of one word replies.

He is attracted to you

If what you said was actually not funny, it might be a sign that he is attracted to you because he is trying to keep the conversation light hearted. This would be more likely if he often starts texting you first, he often tries to get you to meet him and if he often texts you sexual things.

If he did do it because he is attracted to you, it would be likely that he would show signs of being attracted to you, when he is around you in person, by doing things such as:

  • Sitting or standing more upright when he notices you
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Finding excuses to touch you
  • Staring at you then smiling or quickly looking away when you notice
  • Standing close to you when talking to you
  • Positioning himself to be near you
  • Having more dilated pupils than normal when with you
  • Getting anxious when you’re talking to other men
  • Looking at your lips when talking to you
  • Making plans based on yours
  • Mirroring your body language
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Always aiming his feet at you when you’re in the same area

He considers you a friend

It can also be a sign that he considers you a friend. This would be more likely if he seems to text you in a similar way and amount as he does with his other friends and if he shows the same body language and behavior around you as he does with his other friends.

Things to consider

Below are some things to consider to help figure out the main cause.

How he normally texts you

To help figure out how he feels about you, it would help to consider how he normally texts you.

If he normally is the one that texts you first, he often tries to meetup with you and he texts you sexual things, it would be a lot more likely that he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he takes a long time to reply to your messages, he only texts one word and rarely starts the conversation, it would be more likely that he is not very interested.

How he reacts upon seeing you

It would also help to consider what he does when he first sees you.

If he tends to sit up straight, hold prolonged eye contact with you, point his feet at you, make adjustments to his clothing or hair, his pupils dilate and he uncrosses his arms and legs when he sees you, it would be likely that he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he crosses his arms and legs, squints at you, tightens his lips, points his feet away from you, tightens his jaw and avoids eye contact with you when he sees you, it would be more likely that he is not interested in you.

How he interacts with other people

It would also help to compare the way that he interacts with other people with how he interacts with you. If he interacts with you in a very similar way to how he interacts with his other friends, it would be more likely that he considers you a friend. Whereas, if he does things such as touch you the most and behave differently with you, it would be more likely that he is attracted to you.

Multiple signs

When considering what his body language might be showing, it would help to consider multiple signs. This is because a single sign can be unreliable on its own. Whereas, multiple signs that all suggest the same thing can be a lot more reliable.

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.
