If a girl recently got jealous when you were talking to another girl 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 become jealous when you spoke to another girl and why other girls might do the same in the future.
So, what does it mean when a girl gets jealous when you talk to another girl? If you are not dating then it could either be a sign that she is attracted to you or she wants the attention herself. It could also be a sign that she is the one being unfaithful or that she feels insecure about your relationship.
There are actually a number of reasons why a girl might get jealous when you talk to other girls and there are a number of things that you can consider.
Why a girl will get jealous when you talk to other girls
Each of the different reasons why she gets jealous when you talk to other girls 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 get jealous when you talk to other girls, the signs to look for and the things to consider.
She is attracted to you
The reason that she does it could be that she is attracted to you and she is worried that you will be attracted to them and not her.
This would be more likely if she only gets jealous when you specifically talk to other girls and not her other friends as well and if she shows different body language around you compared to when she is with her other friends.
If she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of attraction, in her body language, when she is around you.
These signs could include:
- Holding prolonged eye contact with you
- Touching you a lot
- Standing closer to you than she does with other people
- Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you and when she is around you
- Stroking her hair when talking to you
- Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
- Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
- Giggling a lot at the things that you say
- Pointing her feet at you when she is around you (people point their feet at people that they are attracted to)
- Having dilated pupils when looking at you (peoples pupils become more dilated when looking at someone they are attracted to)
There are more signs of attraction that a girl might show you and I have written about many more of them in this blog post.
She is being unfaithful
If you are dating her then it could be the case that she is actually the one that is being unfaithful.
This is because it implies that she knows that hanging around with the opposite sex could mean that you’re being unfaithful because she’s doing it herself.
If she is being unfaithful then she might show signs of it by doing things such as:
- Avoiding talking about certain subjects
- She gets angry at times especially if you accuse her of things
- Complaining that you’re being controlling
- She works for prolonged time periods
- She’s been paying extra close attention to the way that she looks lately
- She’s been obsessive about the need of privateness
It should be noted that she could show all of these signs but not actually be being unfaithful. While she could also show none of them and still be being unfaithful.
She wants the attention
The reason that she gets jealous when you talk to other girls might be that she wants to have the attention for herself.
She might also feel like you might like the other girl more than her which could make her feel slightly insecure.
This would be more likely if she also gets jealous at her other male friends when they also talk to other girls and if she tends to show similar body language around you as she does with them.
She feels insecure about your relationship
The reason that she could be getting jealous when you talk to other girls could be that she thinks that you are cheating on her.
If that is the case then it would be likely that she would have been doing things such as looking through your phone or accusing you of things.
Consider your relationship with her
The reasons that she gets jealous when you talk to other girls will depend largely on the type of relationship that you have with her.
If she is your girlfriend then it could be the case that she is the one being unfaithful or she is insecure about your relationship. On the other hand, her jealousy could be perfectly reasonable if it seems like you are always talking to other girls around her.
Whereas, if it is a girl that you are not dating then it would make it more likely that she either does it because she is attracted to you or because she wants the attention for herself.
Consider how she reacts to seeing you
When trying to figure out how 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 then it would make it more likely that she has good or bad feelings about you.
If she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:
- Brushing her hair to the side
- Adjusting her appearance
- Seeking eye contact
- Facing toward you
- Moving closer to you
Then it would be more likely that she is attracted 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 shows similar body language around other people as she does with you then it would make it more likely that she does it because she wants the attention.
If she changes her body language around you then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you if you are not already dating her.
Look for a number of body language signs
When considering what her body language could be suggesting it would help to consider a number of body language signs at the same time.
This is because a single body language sign could have many different meanings. This makes single body language sings less reliable on their own.
Whereas, if she shows multiple body language signs that all suggest the same thing then it would make it more likely that she is showing them 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.
