Compliments from a lady can keep you smiling all day. Apart from lifting your mood, you may go about thinking more about her than what she said. However, most times you may wonder what she means.
It feels amazing when a girl tells you “you’re amazing.” But again, you might feel less than amazing, as it might keep you wondering.
Does she like me? Is she just friendly? Is she genuine or patronizing? All these and more may go through your mind. It’s customary to feel this way, especially if she isn’t a friend.
To help you out, in this post, I’ll answer the question of what it means when a girl calls you amazing. In the end, you’ll also know the best way to respond.
What Does it Mean When a Girl Calls You Amazing?
It could mean several things when a girl tells you you’re amazing. First, “amazing’ means having good and endearing qualities. It also means something that has a surprising effect.
A girl will call you amazing to praise your good qualities, and wonderful skills or if she’s being friendly.
Also, she could call you amazing because she’s attracted to you, she likes your company, and she’s teasing you or praising you. Below is what it means when a girl calls you amazing.
You Have Good Qualities
Good qualities attract compliments. This is something that manifests itself in action. If you’ve got good qualities, it means you’re a nice person, generous, respectful, and anything good.
So, a girl, whether someone you know or a stranger, can call you amazing if she sees these good qualities in you without being romantically attracted to you.
These are also characters others see, including other guys, and say good things about.
So, generally when you do things that inspire others, and if your personality is likable, a girl can say “you’re amazing” because that’s what you’re.
She is Praising Your Skills
Another reason a girl would say, “you’re amazing” is if she’s praising your skills. If you’ve got a talent that’s unique or you do things that impress her, she can call you amazing.
Are you a mathematical whiz? Do you crack all the difficult issues at work? Do you score the most goals during basketball? If you’re any of these and more, a girl can call you amazing.
When she says this, it doesn’t mean that she likes you or is trying to flirt. Here, she’s only appreciating you the way your boss can if you close up a deal.
She Likes Your Company
Another reason why a girl would call you amazing is if she likes your company. If she enjoys spending time with you, she can say you’re amazing.
Perhaps you’re the fun type that always gets her to laugh and makes her happy all the time. Also, It could be your energy, the way you reason, or the way you go about conversations.
Generally, if she finds your person interesting, she can call you amazing. If this is so, you’d notice she always wants to spend time with you or chat with you.
Whether this may develop into something more later, it doesn’t mean she’s romantically interested in you if she says you’re amazing. It’s just because she appreciates your company.
She Is Attracted to You
When a girl is attracted to you, she can also tell you that you’re amazing. Whether she’s a friend or a colleague, if she’s romantically interested in you, she can say you’re amazing.
If this is so, you’d notice other signs that show she likes you. Think back. Has she been flirty around you? Does she stick more around you for no concrete reason? Does she comment on your look from time to time?
So, if she likes you, she can call you amazing to give you the hint. In this case, she expects you to make the move before declaring her interest fully.
She’s Encouraging You
If a girl is trying to encourage you, she can say things to make you feel better. Were you sulking because of a game you failed at? Did you feel down because you felt you were no good?
If such is the situation and a girl tells you you’re amazing, it’s because she’s trying to cheer and encourage you. She hopes you get to see the good in you as she sees with her kind words.
By calling you amazing, she knows you can be better and she also wants you to know that.
She Is Being Friendly
One of the reasons a girl would call you amazing is if she’s being friendly. If she considers you her friend, she can compliment you just as much as she compliments her other male friends.
So, she can call you amazing because she appreciates your friendship. Perhaps if she didn’t see you that way, you might not have been friends.
If she says you’re amazing because she’s friendly, you would know if she continues to be herself with you, doing what friends do with each other.
She Is Showing Appreciation
There are many ways people can show their gratitude, and one of such way is complimenting your good act. So, a girl can say, “you’re amazing” to show her appreciation for what you did for her.
Did she call you amazing right after assistance from you? If so, then this is her way of telling you she’s grateful. In this case, she’s deeply touched that you did what you did. Perhaps, it was a lifesaver.
She Is Teasing You
When a girl wants to tease you, she can say things she doesn’t mean just to get a laugh, including leaving compliments. So, a girl can call you amazing just to tease you.
Think about it, were you both with friends and she says it playfully to get others to laugh? Or if you both were together, from your conversation, you’d know if she’s teasing you.
She Isn’t Interested in You Romantically
One of the ways a girl can show her disinterest in a guy is to say nice things about them. So, if she says, “you’re amazing,” it could mean to let you know that she isn’t into you.
Following up on your conversations, you’d know if this is what she means. Have you declared your interest to her? If so, then she can call you amazing to let you know that you’re a great person but not her type.
If such is the case, she’s trying to make you feel less hurt by letting you know she isn’t saying no because you’re no good. It’s either she isn’t ready or can’t find any romantic feelings for you.
