Girls are so touchy and affectionate. They’re way more free with their touches than guys are. Being friends with girls usually involves being subjected to these affectionate touches. It can be difficult to figure out whether a girl is just being nice, or if she means something more by when she touches you. Especially if a girl is touching your hair.
Girls touch each others hair all the time, so trying to translate when it means when a girl touches a guy’s hair can be confusing. Don’t worry, it’s not as difficult as it really seems. If you have a girl in your life who’s always touching your hair, you might want to consider the follow things to figure out what it is she really means.
1. She’s fixing your hair
Let’s be real: is your hair looking all kinds of messed up? To be entirely fair, a girl touching your hair could mean that she’s just trying to fix the mess that you’ve got going on up there. If your hair is always sticking in ten different directions, it might just be that she’s trying to do you a favor and make sure your hair doesn’t look too wild before you’re seen together in public.
Check yourself in the mirror before you meet up next time! If you’ve got a wild cowlick going on, she might just be trying to tame it into place for you. After all, not everyone is into that disheveled, bedhead look. It’s best to say thank you and buy yourself a hair brush.
2. She’s being nice
Girls touch one another affectionately all the time, and it doesn’t have to mean anything. If a girl is touching your hair, see how she interacts with her other friends. You may notice that she’s always fixing other girls’ hair, or lightly touching the hair of all of her guy friends. It might just be her way of being nice and affectionate.
If she’s prone to touching the hair of the other guys and girls that you see her hanging out with, there’s a chance that she’s not singling you out when it comes to hair touching. While touching each others hair can seem intimate and romantic, it’s not always the case with every girl. If you don’t notice that she’s flirting with you in any other way, then chances are that she’s just touching you to be nice.
3. She’s casually flirting
Everyone likes to flirt a little bit. Not just to be nice, affectionate touches are a way for girls to flirt as well. If you notice that you’re the only one who seems to be on the receiving end of all these hair touches, it might be a sign that she’s trying to flirt with you. Casually flirting doesn’t always mean that she likes you or wants to get together.
Sure, she might like you enough to flirt, but it doesn’t have to be serious. People flirt all the time – guys casually flirt all the time! So, girls can too. If she’s touching your hair and flirting, but doesn’t seem invested in going much further than that, it’s probably a sign that she’s just enjoying some casual flirtation.
4. She likes you
Sometimes, flirting is accompanied by actual feelings of affection. Chances are, if she’s flirting with you by touching your hair, she might also like you as well. You’ll probably be aware of it by this point, though. You might know one another a little better than most friends, and you probably have spent a lot of time messaging or hanging out together.
If she likes you, chances are that she’s going to be flirting with you, too. And touching your hair can be a way of her trying to flirt with you. If you want to know that she likes you, it’s best to ask. It might be a little awkward, but once you know then you can show her how much you like her, too.
Girls aren’t so confusing when it comes to the things that they do. If you’re confused, it’s probably because you haven’t spent enough time observing them with their friends, or the other people in their lives. While hair touching can mean that she likes you, or that she’s flirting with you, it could just as easily be a way for her to connect with her friends in a nice, affectionate way.
After all, you’ll probably be able to tell if she’s flirting with you. There’s plenty of signs that a girl is flirting beyond her touching your hair. Or, who knows? Maybe it means that your hair is looking out of whack and she’s trying to save you a little embarrassment! Now that you have some idea of what girls do what they do, you’ll be better prepared for the next time a girl touches your hair.
