If a girl recently licked her lips while talking to you then you might be wondering why and what it means about the way that she feels about you.

This post will show you a number of reasons why she might have licked her lips while talking to you and why other girls might do the same in the future.

So, what does it mean if a girl licks her lips while talking to you? It could be a sign that she is attracted to you especially if she only does it to you and she shows other signs of attraction around you. She might also do it naturally, she might have had something on them or her lips might have been dry.

There are actually a number of reasons why a girl might lick her lips while talking to you and there are a number of things that you can consider.

Why a girl will lick her lips while talking to you

Each of the different reasons why a girl will lick her lips while talking to you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she does it and the body language that she shows.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will lick her lips while talking to you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she licked her lips while talking to you could be that she was showing attraction to you.

This would be more likely if she only slightly licked her lips, she did it while making eye contact with you or while looking at your own lips and if she only did it with you and not other people as well.

If she was showing attraction to you then it would be likely that she would show other signs of being attracted to you, in her body language, around you as well.

These signs can include:

  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you
  • Stroking her hair when talking to you
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Asking you the most questions
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you (peoples pupils dilate when looking at a person that they are attracted to)
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Glancing at you a lot
  • Giggling a lot at the things that you say
  • Pointing her feet at you (people point their feet at people that they are attracted to)
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you

There are many more signs that she might show if she is attracted to you and I have written about many more of them in this post.

She had something on them

The reason that she was licking her lips could be that she had something on them.

This would be more likely if she licked her lips right after she had eaten or drunk something, if she has not done it on separate occasions when talking to you and if she wasn’t showing other body language signs of attraction.

She has a habit of licking her lips

It could also be the case that she has a habit of licking her lips when talking to people.

If this is the case then it would be likely that she would also lick her lips when talking to other people as well and that she would show similar body language around them as with you.

It could be the case that she has a habit of licking her lips and she is attracted to you. If she is then it would be likely that she would show other signs of being attracted to you when she is around you.

Her lips were dry

It could also be the case that her lips felt dry.

This would be more likely if she did it when it was hot, cold, windy, she was showing normal body language around you, she did it while talking to other people as well and if she doesn’t normally lick her lips when talking to you.

Consider when and where she licked her lips

Considering when and where she licked her lips while talking to you would likely help in figuring out why she did it.

If she licked her lips while you were both outside then it would make it more likely that she did it because she had dry lips. If she did it while eating then it would be more likely that she had something on her lips.

If she did it while you were both at a party then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you especially if she was showing other signs of attraction around you. However, it could also be the case that she did it because she had something on them.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you could also help in figuring out why she licked her lips.

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language in a positive way then it would increase the chances that she did it due to being attracted to you.

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

  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Adjusting her posture
  • Raising her eyebrows momentarily
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you

Then it would make it more likely that she licked her lips because she was showing attraction to you.

Consider how she interacts with other people

It would also help to compare the way that she interacts with other people with how she interacts with you.

If she also tends to lick her lips around other people and she shows the same body language around them as with you then it would make it more likely that she has a habit of licking her lips.

Whereas, if she only did it while talking to you and she was showing other different body language signs around you then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you.

Consider multiple body language signs

When considering what her body language could have been suggesting it would be helpful to consider multiple body language signs at the same time.

This is because a single body language sign can have multiple different meanings making them unreliable on their own.

Whereas, it would be more likely that she would show multiple body language signs that all suggest the same thing for that specific 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.
