If a girl has been playing with your emotions 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 play with your emotions.

So, why would a girl play with your emotions? It could be the case that her mood changes often especially if she also acts in a similar way with her other friends. It could also be that she is seeing someone else or that she is not interested in you. Alternatively, she might do it because she is attracted to you and she wants to get you to show more interest.

There are actually a number of reasons why a girl might play with your emotions and there are a number of things that you can consider.

Why a girl will play with your emotions

Each of the different reasons why a girl will play with your emotions will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she does it and the body language that she shows around you.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will play with your emotions, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She is seeing someone else

The reason that she seems to be playing with your emotions could be that she is seeing someone else.

If she has started seeing someone else then it would be likely that she would have been showing a lot more interest in you in the past but she suddenly started acting more distant around you lately. It would also be more likely if she stopped responding to your messages, if you have seen her hanging out with other guys and if she acts normally around her other friends.

She is attracted to you

The reason that she plays with your emotions could be that she is attracted to you.

Sometimes, girls will behave differently with guys that they are attracted to since they want to make the guy think about them more and to feel like they are not interested in him so that he will be more likely to show more interest.

This would be more likely to be the reason if you have not known her for very long and if you have only shown some interest up to this point.

If she is attracted to you then it would be likely that she would show signs of being attracted to you when she is around you by doing things such as:

  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you
  • Stroking her hair while talking to you
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you (peoples pupils dilate when looking at someone that they are attracted to)
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Mirroring your body language
  • Touching you a lot
  • Watching you when you are with other girls
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you

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

She wants you to think about her more

The reason that she plays with your emotions could be because she wants to get you to think about her more.

The reason for this could be that she wants you to show more interest in her by making it seem like she is not interested in you. This way it will be necessary for you to be the one to show interest.

If this is the case then it would be likely that it would continue if you were to get into a relationship.

Her mood changes often

The reason that she does it might be because her mood tends to fluctuate a lot naturally.

This would be more likely if she often changes the way that she interacts with her other friends as well and if she shows similar body language around them as with you.

She is not interested in you

It could also be the case that she is not interested in you anymore.

This would be more likely if she was initially showing a lot of interest in you but she has become more distant since then.

There are many reasons that she might have lost interest but it could be that she didn’t like your personality, she started seeing someone else or she lost attraction for you.

Consider in what way she plays with your emotions

When considering why she plays with your emotions it would help to consider in what way she does it.

If she often changes the way that she acts around you then it would be more likely that she either tends to change her mood often, she is seeing someone else or that she lost some interest in you. It would help to consider the way that she interacts with her other friends as well.

If she was showing a lot of interest in you but she suddenly stopped then it could be the case that she wants you to show more interest if she still shows other signs of attraction. However, it could also be the case that she lost interest in you especially if she started to act more distant.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

Considering the way that she reacts to seeing you could also help in figuring out how she feels about you.

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language then it would be more likely that she has good or bad feelings about you depending on how she changes it.

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

  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Holding eye contact with you
  • Raising her eyebrows momentarily
  • Adjusting her posture

Then it would make it more likely that she is attracted to you.

Whereas, if she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Squinting
  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Tensing her lips
  • Tensing her jaw
  • Facing away from you
  • Holding her eyes closed momentarily

Then it would be more likely that she has negative feelings towards you or she has lost interest in 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 her other friends mention that she changes her mood a lot and she shows the same body language around them as with you then it would be more likely that her mood fluctuates a lot with everyone.

If she only does it with you and she tends to show different body language around you then it would be more likely that she has good or bad feelings about you depending on how she changes it.

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.
