Has a girl ever called you ‘bro?’ Why do girls call men ‘bro’ or ‘dude?’ This is confusing because you don’t know whether she’s friend-zoning you, she likes you, or she’s just looking for attention.

Men call each other ‘bro’ all the time, and they mean it. They feel a connection with each other as if they’re brothers. And sometimes they behave that way.

Men calling each other ‘bro’ is like a bond between men who feel they were made to be blood brothers, but they aren’t. However, when a girl calls you bro, that’s weird.

In most cases, you always have a crush on those girls who called you bro. To make it worse, she can even call you a ‘dude.’ This where you’ll feel like she has already bro-zoned you. But sometimes a girl can call you bro, just like the way she calls other friends.

However, her calling you bro might have a different meaning, or she doesn’t like you. These 5 reasons will help you discover why she called you bro.

1. She calls everyone bro.

Most girls like calling the men they like ‘bro.’ If you find that she called two other guys ‘bro,’ know that she hasn’t bro-zoned you. The better part is that now you know she likes you. She wouldn’t call someone a bro is she doesn’t want them. You can now know how to approach her. If you treat her right, the ‘bro’ might turn to something more than a friend.

2. She’s unsure.

A girl can call you bro if she’s scared of falling in love with you. Perhaps you’re the most handsome guy she has ever met, and she feels like she doesn’t deserve to be with you.

Don’t push her off, especially when you realize she has unresolved issues, or unsure of the situation. You can look for signs such as texting or calling you when she’s bored or late at night. It might mean she’s into you.

But be sure of the sign as you can often be wrong. Understand that it’s easy for you to fail if you rush into the relationship.

3. She’s hiding something from you.

She called you bro because she’s hiding feeling from you. She probably likes you, but she doesn’t want you to know.

She might be thinking that if you realize she’s into you, you might turn her down. She’s unsure of your feeling for her. Also, she might be afraid of rejection since she had a bad experience in the past.

Thus, she called you bro to make the situation unsuspicious. But always check out her body language as these signs will never lie.

4. She trusts you.

When she calls you bro, it means she’s comfortable talking to you about some issues. She doesn’t have a boyfriend, and she hopes you’re the guy she can trust.

In such situations, it might mean that you’re in the friend zone. Even if you don’t like it the way she called you, don’t tell her to the face. She might understand it the wrong way or even get angry with you.

5. She back down.

This is obvious, and she doesn’t want a relationship with you. Observe the way she behaves around you. If she answers all your text with a short summary message or she’s always talking about the guy she’s crushing on, don’t even think about having a relationship with her.

These 5 reasons can help you to know what she means when she calls you bro. Don’t get discouraged when she calls you that because it might imply she has a feeling for you, but afraid you might not like her back. Always look for body languages and gesture to know what she wants.
