There are actually a number of things to consider when trying to figure out why she kissed you on the lips and there are a number of reasons why she might have done it.

Why a girl will kiss you on the lips

Each of the different reasons why a girl will kiss you on the lips will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she did it and the body language that she shows.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will kiss you on the lips, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she kissed you on the lips is likely to be that she likes you.

This would be especially likely if she does not do similar things with her other friends, if she has kissed you on the lips multiple times and if she does other similar things with you as well.

If she did kiss you on the lips because 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:

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

She was being friendly

The reason that she kissed you on the lips could be that she was just being friendly.

This would be more likely if she also does it with her other friends as well and if she shows the same body language around them as with you.

It would also be less likely that she would show many signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t around other people.

She was flirting

The reason that she kissed you on the lips is likely to be that she was flirting.

If she only did it with you and she was giving you the most amount of attention then it would likely be the case that she wanted you to make a move on her and kissing you was a way of showing that.

She was trying to reassure you

It is possible that the reason that she kissed you on the lips was because she was trying to reassure you.

This would be more likely if she kissed you on the lips when you were showing signs of being sad or when you were talking to her about something that made you sad. Signs that you were sad could include talking with a monotone voice, drooping the shoulders or taking lots of deeper breathes.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

When trying to figure out why she kissed you on the lips 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 be much more likely 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
  • Seeking to make eye contact with you
  • Positioning herself to be closer to you
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Raising her eyebrows momentarily
  • Pointing her feet at you

Then it would make it more likely that she kissed you on the lips because she was attracted to you.

Consider how she interacts with other people

It would also help to consider the way that she interacts with other people and how it compares to what she is like with you.

If she shows the same body language around other people and she does similar things with her friends then it would not be as strong of a sign that she is attracted to you.

Whereas, if she shows multiple signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with her other friends then it would make it more likely that she kissed your lips because she is attracted to you.

Consider when and where she kissed you on the lips

The timing and location of how she kissed you on the lips would also be a useful thing to consider.

If she kissed you on the lips when you were alone together then it would make it more likely that she kissed you on the lips because she was attracted to you. This would be especially likely if you were not feeling or showing signs of being sad.

If she did it when you were around other people then it could be the case that she was being friendly but it would also be likely that she was flirting with you. It would help to consider if she did similar things with other people as well.

Look for multiple clues in her body language

When considering what her body language could have been suggesting it would be helpful to look for multiple signs that suggest the same thing.

If she only showed one body language sign of attraction then it would not be as reliable since single body language signs can have multiple different meanings.

Whereas, if she was showing multiple body language signs of attraction around you 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.
