    What does it mean when a woman touches your thigh?

    Hi all,

    So I was at a happy hour last night with a few of my coworkers and my roommate, and at one point the girl who was sitting next to me wanted to tell a story that involved the two of us, so she leaned over and lightly put her hand on my thigh for a few moments while she started to tell the story. I didn't put much thought into it at the time; I used to have feelings for this girl a long time ago, but those feelings came and went, and now I really consider her a close friend, and its not the first time shes done it either.

    After happy hour, I went out with her to a concert, and my roommate texted me saying "is she still dating someone? Girls don't touch your leg for no reason "

    Maybe I'm just naive and oblivious to these things, but is there anything to read into that?

    The rest of the evening was fairly uneventful; we went to the concert and then had dinner and then parted ways, but I'm just curious to hear people's thoughts on her body language.

    Thanks!

    Is she normally a touchy or flirtatious person? Even so, she may feel really comfortable with you and would have touched your arm. touching your leg usually means she is also attracted to you. The happy hour allowed her to let it show a bit.

    Sounds like she's keen. People don't often touch people on the thigh to tell a story. She obviously wanted your full attention and to feel her hand on your thigh.

    Definitely a sexual cue.

    I think that one single act of touching your leg without something more doesnt given a good indicator. She could be a touchy person or she could have just touched your leg because she was referencing you in the story.

    Sadly, I think Day_Walker is right. I've had women touch my thigh and mean absolutely nothing.

    Well look at it this way. There are two possible outcomes. It could mean something or not. And the only way to answer it is to ask her not the forum really.

    Girls will do things like this and not see the sexual innuendo behind it or any implication to flirting behind it. It's just a part of who they are.

    Like this one girl... I had a banana and I asked her "want some?" and she says sure and dives in and takes a bite of the banana from near my groin area. I just so happened to be resting it there cause my arms were comfortable resting near there. She didn't realize what that looked like to me, I gave her one of those stares, and then we laughed about it.

    That alone would give me a tingling sensation in my pants. But yeah sometime women hold my arms or give me a massage and it doesn't mean a thing to them.

    The only reason I would do it if it didn't mean anything sexual, is in a context where I know the guy basically has a gf (so platonic relationship) or is gay. Then again, I still feel awkward at having gays grab my ass and boobs.
