If a guy recently said that you’re one of a kind then you’re probably wondering why and what he meant by it.

This post will help you understand why he called you one of a kind and show you why other guys might call you it as well.

So, what does it mean when a guy calls you one of a kind? It might mean that he is attracted to you which would be more likely if he only calls you one of a kind and he shows other signs of attraction around you. It might also mean that he is trying to make you feel better, he wants something from you or that he is trying to show that he is grateful for your help.

Since a guy might call you one of a kind for a variety of reasons it is important to consider the context of how he said it and the body language that he showed.

Reasons why a guy will call you one of a kind

Each of the different reasons why a guy might call you one of a kind will likely come with a number of clues especially in his body language.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a guy will call you one of a kind and the body language signs that you can expect him to show with them.

He’s attracted to you

If he called you one of a kind, he is the same age as you and he changes his body language and behavior when he is around you then it would be likely that he is attracted to you. This would be especially likely if he called you one of a kind when you were alone together.

If he did call you one of a kind because he is attracted to you then it would be likely that he would show other signs of being attracted to you in his body language and behavior.

These signs could include:

  • Mirroring your body language
  • Standing close to you when talking to you
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Finding excuses to touch you
  • Sitting upright when he sees you
  • Uncrossing his arms when he notices you
  • Adjusting his hair or clothing when he notices you
  • Having more dilated pupils than usual when he is with you
  • Pointing his feet in your direction
  • A lack of negative signs such as squinting, tensing the jaw, gritting the teeth or pupil constriction
  • Signs of being nervous such as blinking more, rubbing behaviors or fidgeting

He wants to be more than just friends with you

If he has been your friend for a while and he called you one of a kind then it could be the case that he wants to be more than just friends with you.

If he does want to be more than just friends with you then it would be likely that he would show signs of being attracted to you in his body language such as those mentioned above.

It would be particularly likely that he would get anxious when you’re with other men, that he would stick around when you are and that he would watch you when you’re with other men. It would also be likely that he would get defensive when other men are with you both and that he would hold eye contact with you and have dilated pupils when he is with you.

He wants to see your reaction

The reason that he called you one of a kind could be that he is attracted to you but he is not sure if you are attracted to him.

If that is the case then he might have called you it because he wanted to see if you would react positively.

If he did call you one of a kind to see your reaction then it would be more likely that he would have only said it once, it would have seemed kind of random and he would likely show signs of attraction around you.

He trying to make you feel better

The reason that he called you one of a kind might be that he was trying to cheer you up.

If that is why he called you one of a kind then it would be more likely that he would have said it when you were talking to him about something that made you feel sad. It would also be likely that you would have been showing signs of feeling sad such as watery eyes, taking deeper breaths and quickly inhaling through the nose.

It would also be likely that he would only have said it then and not at other times as well.

He wants something from you

It could be the case that he called you one of a kind because he was trying to make you feel like you owed him something.

If that is why he said it then it would be likely that he would also have asked a favor from you shortly after saying it.

It would also be likely that he would only seem to talk to you when he needs you to do something for him.

He’s showing that he is very grateful for your help

It could be the case that he said that you’re one of a kind because he was really grateful for your help with something.

In saying that you’re one of a kind he was showing that your help was really beneficial and that he wouldn’t have got it somewhere else.

Consider your relationship with him

When trying to understand why he called you one of a kind 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 either said it to make you feel better or because he was showing that he likes you. It would help to consider what else was going on when he said it and the type of body language that he shows around you.

If he was a guy that you hadn’t met before or one that you don’t know very well then it would be more likely that he was saying it to see how you would react.

Consider when he said it

The timing of when he called you one of a kind would likely be a useful thing to think about.

If he called you one of a kind when you had just done him a favor then it would be a lot more likely that he was referring to that favor when he said it.

If he said it just before asking you to do something then it would be more likely that he said it because he wanted something from you.

If he said it when you had both been alone together for a while then it would be more likely that he said it because he was attracted to you.

Consider how he reacts to seeing you

It would also be helpful to consider the way that he reacts to seeing you when trying to figure out why he called you one of a kind.

If he changes his body language when he sees you then it would be a strong sign that he has some kind of feelings for you that could be good or bad.

If he reacts by sitting upright, uncrossing his arms, smiling, adjusting his hair or clothing, raising his eyebrows, his pupils dilate, pointing his feet at you and he makes space for you then it would be more likely that he is attracted to you.

Think about how he interacts with other people

When trying to understand why he called you one of a kind it would also be helpful to consider the way that he interacts with other people.

If you notice that he calls other people similar things and he shows the same body language and behavior around them as he does with you then it would be less likely that he said it due to attraction. But, it would be more likely that he was being grateful or possibly that he was referring to your personality.

Whereas, if he only says things like it to you and he changes his body language and behavior when he is around you then it would be more likely that he is attracted to you assuming that he shows signs of attraction around you.

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.
