What does it mean when a man kisses your lips?

Below are likely causes and what would make each of them more likely.

He is attracted to you

The most likely reason why a guy would kiss you on the lips is that he is attracted to you.

If he kissed you on the lips after a date, it would be especially likely that he did it due to being attracted to you.

If he did do it because he is attracted to you then it would be likely that he would show other signs of attraction in his body language and behavior.

These signs can include:

  • Mirroring your body language
  • Asking you more questions than he does to other people when you’re in a group together
  • Standing in your personal space when talking to you
  • Getting agitated when you’re talking to other men
  • Staring at you then quickly looking away when you notice
  • Uncrossing his arms and legs when he first sees you
  • Sitting upright when he first sees you
  • Adjusting his clothing or hair when he first sees you
  • Pointing his feet at you
  • Talking with a deeper voice when you’re around
  • Becoming defensive when other men your age are around
  • Asking your friends about you
  • Blinking more frequently
  • His pupils become more dilated when he is with you

He was trying to flirt

It is also likely that he was trying to flirt with you. This would be more likely if he also did things such as touch you a lot, stand near you, say sexual things and make strong eye contact with you.

He was trying to be friendly

In some cultures, it is not uncommon to kiss friends on the lips. It could be the case that he kissed you on the lips because he was being friendly. However, this would be unlikely in western cultures.

Consider how he reacts to seeing you

When trying to figure out why he kissed you on the lips it would help to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.

If he reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing his body language then it would be much more likely that he did it due to being attracted to you.

This means that if he reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Seeking to make eye contact with you
  • Positioning himself to be closer to you
  • Adjusting his appearance
  • Raising his eyebrows momentarily
  • Pointing his feet at you

Then it would make it more likely that he kissed you on the lips because he was attracted to you.

Consider how she interacts with other people

It would also help to consider the way that he interacts with other people and how it compares to what he is like with you.

If he shows the same body language around other people and he does similar things with her friends then it would not be as strong of a sign that he is attracted to you.

Whereas, if he shows multiple signs of attraction around you that he doesn’t with his other friends then it would make it more likely that he kissed your lips because he is attracted to you.

Consider when and where she kissed you on the lips

The timing and location of how he kissed you on the lips would also be a useful thing to consider.

If he kissed you on the lips when you were alone together or on a date, it would make it more likely that he kissed you on the lips because he was attracted to you.

If he did it when you were around other people then it could be the case that he was being friendly but it would also be likely that he was flirting with you. It would also be likely that it was dominant behavior. It would help to consider if she did similar things with other people as well.

Look for multiple clues in her body language

When considering what his body language could have been suggesting it would be helpful to look for multiple signs that suggest the same thing.

If he only showed one body language sign of attraction then it would not be as reliable since single body language signs can have multiple different meanings.

Whereas, if he was showing multiple body language signs of attraction around you then it would make it more likely that he was showing them for that reason.

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.
