Using a girl’s body language to tell if she’s flirting with you, or something a little more, is easier than a lot of guys will let on. Say you’re out with a girl, or maybe with a group of friends. You’re hanging out somewhere, like a bar or a party. Then, the girl that you’re talking with puts her hand on your thigh. There are more ways than one to take that gesture.
Like a lot of guys, you might be confused as to what it means when a girl reaches out and touches your thigh. After all, it’s pretty close to other areas of your body that you may, or may not, want her touching later on. A touch on the thigh is a pretty bold move for any girl, so she’s probably going to be pretty confident and know exactly what she wants. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t seem to figure it out.
Here are some things that it might mean when a girl touches your thigh.
1. It doesn’t mean anything
Well, while it might mean something, it could very well might not mean anything. Pay attention to the rest of her body language when you’re interacting with her. She may just be a very hands on person. She might have excitedly touched you while telling a story, or talking about something, and her hand just happened to land on your thigh.
If all of the rest of her body language was otherwise platonic and friendly, it might have just been an accident. Or, she may just not have realized that touching your thigh meant something a little more to you than it does to her. Girls are much more tactile when it comes to casual touches than men are. Keep an eye out for body language and analyze the context in which your thigh was touched. You don’t want to accidentally make something out of nothing!
2. She’s flirting
Touching a guy on the thigh, deliberately, is definitely a sign of flirting. If you can be sure that her touch wasn’t accidental, then a touch on the thigh is a flirtatious move. After all, the thigh is an erogenous zone. It’s also quite close to other parts of our body that we might want to engage in. If the rest of her body language seems to be flirtatious, a touch on the thigh might just be her way to let you know that she’s into you.
For example, you’ll want to make sure that the touch is deliberate. Is she touching your thigh while leaning forward to talk to you, or is it just a casual touch? A flirtatious touch on the thigh means that it’ll be slightly lingering. She won’t have her hand too high up, but it’ll definitely be on your thigh. She might have been verbally flirting with you all night, as well. That’s definitely a sign that her touch on the thigh is much more than friendly or casual.
3. She wants to hook up
A touch on the thigh, when deliberate and flirtatious, can also be her way of letting you know that she would like to get to know you a little more intimately. If her hand touches your thigh while she’s flirting with you, you already know that she’s into you. Her hand will still linger on your thigh, and she’ll still be flirting with you verbally, as well as with other body language symbols, like leaning forward and looking you directly in the eye.
However, her hand will start to move up and down your thigh while she’s talking. She’ll most likely put her hand very far up your thigh to let you know exactly what she’s thinking and what she want. If you’re into her, there’s no reason why you can’t sit back and enjoy!
Sometimes, when girls touch guys it can be confusing – after all, some touches are just meant to be platonic. When she touches your arm or back, it probably doesn’t mean much, nor does it always mean that she’s flirting with you. However, when a girl touches your thigh, you can almost guarantee that it means a little more than just a platonic touch.
Sure, she may be touching your thigh and not mean anything by it, but at that point you’re bound to be aware of it. When a girl is flirting with you and touching your thigh, you’ll definitely know it. All the rest of her body language signs will point to flirting. Or, they may point to her wanting to hook up! Either way, a touch on the thigh is definitely one of the more intimate types of touches that a woman can bestow. She may even be touching you to show you exactly where she wants you to touch her, too.
