If a girl was recently copying your actions then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.
This post will show you why she might have copied you and why other girls might do the same in the future.
So, why would a girl copy me? It would likely be a sign that she is attracted to you especially if she only does it with you and she shows other signs of attraction around you. She might also be doing it naturally to fit in with you and your friends.
When trying to figure out why a girl was copying you there are a number of things that you can consider and there are a number of body language signs to look for.
Why a girl will copy you
Each of the different reasons why a girl will copy you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she does it and in the body language that she shows.
Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will copy you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.
She is attracted to you
The reason that she copies you is likely to be that she likes you.
This would be more likely if she copies you in a positive way and if she only does it with you.
The reason that mirroring your body language is a sign that she is attracted to you is that it suggests she wants you to feel like she is from the same group as you. This is why you will often see couples making the same smile in photos.
If she does mirror you because she likes you then it would be likely that she would show other signs of attraction around you such as:
- Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you
- Touching you a lot
- Stroking her hair while talking to you
- Pointing her feet at you (people point their feet at people they are attracted to)
- Talking to you with a higher-pitched voice than she does to other people
- Standing closer to you than she does with other people
- Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
- Asking you the most questions
- Holding prolonged eye contact
- Having dilated pupils when looking at you (peoples pupils dilate when looking at someone that they are attracted to)
- Telling her friends about you
She considers you a friend
It could also be a sign that she considers you a friend.
In this case, it would be more likely that she would do it subconsciously. This is because mirroring the body language of the people around us will increase the chances of getting accepted by the group.
It would also be more likely if she also copies the body language of other people, in your friendship group, in a similar way and if she doesn’t show many signs of attraction around you.
She does it naturally
It might be the case that she does it naturally and that she was not actually copying you.
This would be more likely if she only copied you in one unintentional way such as she said something like you normally would. Whereas, if she copies your body language in multiple different ways then it would be less likely that she does it naturally.
She was teasing you
The reason that she was copying you could be that she was teasing you.
This would be more likely if she did it in an overt way that was not subconscious. Such as if she imitated something that you normally say. If she copied your body language by standing with a similar stance as you or she used similar words as you subconsciously then it would be less likely that she was teasing you.
If she was teasing you then it would also be a sign that she likes you and it would help to consider the other body language signs that she was showing.
Consider the way that she reacts to seeing you
When trying to understand why she copied you and the way that she feels about you it would help to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.
If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language, in a way that shows attraction, then it would make it more likely that she copied you because she likes you.
So, if she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:
- Adjusting her appearance
- Brushing her hair to the side
- Uncrossing her arms and sitting more upright
- Seeking eye contact with you
- Positioning herself to be nearer to you
Then it would make it more likely that she copied your body language because she likes you.
Consider how she interacts with other people
It would also help to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people.
If she also shows similar body language around other people as she does with you then it would make it more likely that she considers you a friend.
Whereas, if she shows signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t around other people then it would make it more likely that she is attracted to you.
Consider how she copies you
It would also help to consider in what way she copies you.
If she also copies other people in the same way then it would suggest that she is, naturally, trying to fit in with the group.
If she copies you by imitating things that you say then it could be that she is just teasing you. However, it could also be a sign that she likes you and it would help to consider the other body language signs she shows around you.
Consider multiple aspects of her body language
When considering what her body language could be suggesting it would help to consider multiple body language signs at the same time.
This is because she could be showing a single body language sign for a number of different reasons. Whereas, if she is showing multiple body language signs that all suggest the same thing then it would make it more likely that she is showing them for that particular 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.
