There are actually a number of different reasons why a girl will text you then ignore you so it would help to consider the body language that she shows around you and the context of how she does it.

Why a girl will text you then ignore you

Each of the different reasons why a girl will text you then ignore you will likely come with a number of clues in her body language and in the way that she does it.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will text you then ignore you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She was busy

The reason that she ignored you could have been that she was busy or she didn’t see your message. This would be more likely if she only ignored one of your messages.

If it is the case that she was busy then she could still be interested in you. This would be more likely if she agrees to hang out with you when she messages you, if she texts you first, if she texts you more sexual things and if she shows signs of interest in you in person that she doesn’t show with other people.

If she does like 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:

  • Brushing her hair to the side when she is around you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Stroking her hair while with you
  • Asking you lots of questions and giving you the most attention
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • 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
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Talking to you with a higher-pitched voice than she does with other people
  • Tilting her head while talking to you

She isn’t interested in you anymore

It could be the case that she was interested in you but now she isn’t.

This would be more likely if she has been ignoring multiple texts over a prolonged period and if she has stopped messaging you completely. It would also be likely that she would have shown signs of interest in her body language in the past but that she doesn’t show them around you anymore.

She might also show signs of disinterest, in her body language, when she is around you such as:

  • Squinting when looking at you
  • Crossing her arms when she sees you
  • Tensing her lips when you’re talking
  • Only smiling with her mouth and not with the eyes
  • Giving you short answers
  • Not asking you any questions
  • Distancing herself from you
  • Pointing her feet away from you

She doesn’t know what to say

The reason that she ignored you could be that she didn’t know what to say.

This would be more likely if she does text you back sometimes but she doesn’t respond to some of your texts.

It could still be the case that she is interested in you especially if she shows signs of it in person, if she texts you first some times and if she agrees to hang out when she texts you.

You have been messaging her too much

It could be the case that you have been messaging her too much and it has caused her to get bored with your conversation and to lose interest in you.

This would be more likely if she became less responsive to you gradually and if you were showing a lot of interest early on.

She is seeing someone else

It could be the case that she has stopped texting you because she is seeing someone else know.

This would be more likely if she stopped texting you more suddenly, if she has been hanging out with other guys and if she changes her behavior when she is around certain guys.

Consider what she does message you

When trying to understand why she texted you then ignored you it would help to consider the things that she was texting you.

If she was texting you first, she was asking or agreeing to hang out with you or she was texting you more sexual things then it would make it more likely that she does like you but that she was busy. However, it could still be the case that she lost interest in you so it would help to consider how many texts she has been ignoring and if she has changed her body language around you in person.

If she was not very responsive to you from the start then it would be more likely that she wasn’t very interested in you in the first place. It would help to consider what her body language was like when she first gave you her number.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

It would also help to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you when trying to understand why she texted you then ignored you.

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language in a positive or negative way then it would make it more likely that she has positive or negative feelings about you.

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

  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Sitting or standing more upright and uncrossing her arms

Then it would be more likely that she is interested in you but she was busy or she just didn’t know what to say.

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

  • Crossing her arms
  • Squinting
  • Tightening her lips
  • Tensing her jaw
  • Avoiding eye contact

Then it would be more likely that she is not interested in you.

Consider how she interacts with her other friends

It would also help to compare the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with her other friends.

If she also tends to ignore texts from her other friends but she does show signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with her other friends then it would be more likely that she is interested in you.

Whereas, if she tends to be quick to respond to other people and she doesn’t show much interest around you then it would be more likely that she ignored you because she is not interested in you.

Look for multiple clues in her body language

When considering what her body language could be suggesting it would be helpful to consider multiple signs concurrently.

She could have been showing a single body language sign of interest or disinterest for multiple different reasons. This can make single body language signs unreliable on their own.

Whereas, if she was showing a cluster of body language signs of interest or disinterest then it would be more likely that she was showing them for one of those reasons.
