If a girl was recently looking at your lips when talking to you then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will show you a number of reasons why a girl will look at your lips when talking to you.

So, what does it mean when a girl looks at your lips when talking to you? It will often be a sign that she is attracted to you especially if she only does it with you and she shows other signs of attraction. She might also be trying to understand what you are saying.

There are actually a number of reasons why a girl might look at your lips when talking to you and there are a number of things that you can consider.

Why a girl will look at your lips when talking to you

Each of the different reasons why a girl will look at your lips when 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 look at your lips when talking to you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she looks at your lips when talking to you could be that she is attracted to you.

This would be more likely if she only looks at your lips when talking to you and she doesn’t tend to look at other people’s lips as well.

If she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show other signs of being attracted to you as well such as:

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

There are more signs of attraction that a girl might show you and I have spoken about many of them in this blog post.

She is trying to understand what you are saying

The reason that she looks at your lips when talking to you could be that she is trying to understand what you are saying.

This would be more likely if English is not her first language and if you tend to talk to her in loud environments. It would also be more likely if she also does it with other people as well and if she shows the same body language around them as she does with you.

She is nervous

People will often look down when they are nervous and she might be looking at your lips often because of it.

If she does look down at your lips due to being nervous then it would be likely that she would have some social anxiety and that she would do it around other people as well.

It would also be likely that she would show other signs of being nervous such as:

  • Rubbing her face, arms or neck
  • Fidgeting
  • Tapping her fingers and feet
  • Swaying from side to side
  • Talking at a higher pitch than normal

The reason that she is nervous could be that she is attracted to you. If she is then it would be more likely that she would only do it with you and that she would show other signs of attraction.

She is mirroring your own behavior

If you tend to look at her lips a lot as well and you hang out with her a lot then it could be the case that she is mirroring you.

People will mirror the behavior of people that they hang out with a lot since it is an evolutionary trait that has helped in developing ties within groups.

Mirroring you could also be a sign that she is attracted to you. If she does mirror you because she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would mirror you in other ways and that she would show other signs of attraction around you.

She is thinking of kissing you

The reason that she looks at your lips could be that she is thinking of kissing you.

This would be more likely if she shows other signs of attraction around you and if she was doing it when she was alone with you or in a location such as a party.

Consider when and where she looks at your lips

It would help to consider the location that she looks at your lips in when trying to figure out why she does it.

If she was looking at your lips at a party then it would make it more likely that she was either showing attraction to you or that she was trying to hear what you were saying. If it wasn’t that loud and she wasn’t doing the same with other people then it would be more likely to be a sign of attraction.

If she was doing it somewhere such as in class then it would be more likely that she was slightly nervous due to having some social anxiety and it would help to consider if she does it with other people as well.

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 look at other people’s lips, when talking to them, and she shows similar body language around them then it would be more likely that she does it to understand people better or because she is nervous.

If she only looks at your lips and her body language is different around you then it would make it more likely that she is showing attraction to you.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you could also help.

If she reacts to seeing you by changing her body language then it would make it more likely that she has good or bad feelings towards you.

If she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Moving closer to you
  • Momentarily raising her eyebrows
  • Adjusting her posture

Then it would make it more likely that she looks at your lips due to being attracted to you.

Look for more than one sign

When considering what her body language might have been suggesting it would help to consider multiple body language signs.

It could be the case that she was showing a single body language sign for multiple different reasons. Whereas, if she was showing multiple body language signs that all suggested the same thing then it would make it more likely that she 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.
