It really depends on how you say it and what your history is with that person. I have a female friend who says "hey, you" to me all the time, but we're just friends. 😊 But if the conversation with that person has a flirtatious history it can mean and/or be taken as a flirtatious way to address someone. It's kind of one of those seemingly innocent sayings that you need to be careful with. lol10
I often find it is flirtatious because one of the first guys who showed me romantic interests said it/wrote it :D.. and I used it with guys I dated or just found cute myself. But people are different, so I would not think someone is flirting based on that alone.10
I'm sure people say it in a platonic context but I don't really see it. Better to just stray away from it if you aren't flirting lol10
What Girls & Guys Said
Shit this just made me laugh so hard!! I love this particular factoid about you. In fact it might be my favorite thing I know about you so far. Hilarious.
Now, to break down the hilarity until all the funniness is sucked out of it.
So... first, yes "hey you" can for sure be flirtatious. In fact it is something that is a fairly regular flirty thing to say.
you see... the reason "hey you" is flirtatious is 100% contained in everything ASIDE FROM THE WORDS THEMSELVES. It's the way you say "hey you". It's the look you have when you say it. It's your body language... but it's the WAY "hey you" is said that makes it flirtatious.
The phrase "hey you" is in no way inherently more filtrations than literally any other regular greeting UNLESS you say it in a flirtatious way.
On the flipside... you could say "hello" or "how's it going" or even "what's up" in a way that is everybit as flirtatious as "hey you." It's all about the non-verbal flirtatious elements along with HOW you say it.
I love love love the idea that you go through life... actively avoiding the use of "hey you" (probably the most common thing anyone ever says to anyone) for fear that people will misinterpret your innocent greeting as flirting... That's pure gold.
Glad I could free you to say "hey you" without fear people will think you're being all flirty ;P10
Yeah depends on how you say it.
can be flirty, can be nasty, commanding etc.
draw out those letters and lighten the tone, it’s on its way to being flirty.
make It sharp and short and loud, it’s commanding
make sharp, abrupt and shove in some anger, it’s nasty10
Depends on how you say it I mean thinking back I’ve said some way out shit to get a chicks attention and it usually worked but if I would come with a different attitude and told a chick to pull her big ol’ feet in before she hurt somebody especially when she wasn’t in the way and didn’t have big feet she would probably tell me to fuck off. By the way she didn’t tell me to fuck off10
It all depends on the tone!
“Hey you”, in my boyfriends voice ( in my head) makes me blush while I type this.
“Hey you”, in my 8th grade class teacher’s voice ( in my head) for beating up a kid sounds terrifying.
“Hey you”, in my parents voice, sounds comforting while I rant about having life crises.
And “Hey You” to a colleague rather sounds flirty.20
Depends what your accent is... I mean my eldest brother lives in Birmingham and him saying hello to me is Haaayy Yooouwww Oanddiee (that's hey you Andy in normal language) ... I've never found it flirtatious in anyway when delivered by any female who shares the same accent as my brother to be fair lol10
I don't think it matters what I say a lot of people think that I'm flirting with them just because of the words that I use there have been times where I had just met somebody. And whenever we're doing I go to ask then a question and I can't remember their name so instead of saying hey I'll say who who as in who's your name again LOL0
Depends on the tone of voice. Wasn't Richard Simmons' catchphrase "HEEEEEEEEEY, YOOOUUU!" Or for example, if they said it like this...https://www.youtube.com/embed/2pnBXFgOP8Y10
A person can always say in an American accent of doing things: hey you!
With aggression. Lol. 😔😔🙄
So no. Unless she says it with sexy eyes and and body shake and a real sensual look of desire... no. 😐10
Entirely depends how you say it. If you say, hey you in a flirtatious tone to someone you’re dating or hooking up with, then yeah. But platonically, friends say this to each other as well.10
Depends on how/who you're saying it too. Context always matters. When I say it to my wife I'm being flirty, when I say it to a new co worker it's because I probably forgot their name haha.10
Neh, it's not at all flirtatious, but I guess it depends in what way are you calling them. Like there are several tones/shades of hey you. But I would say, don't think about it much.10
Bella my opinion is that there's nothing inherently flirtatious about that greeting. But I guess if it was perceived that way it would all depend on the context and the way it was said, etc.
Yeah it's more flirtatious than it isn't
Like it's either a flirt or an endearing friendly call if already know the person's name.10
Definitely the way you say it. Separate the words a bit and draw them out. I’ve pulled it off in person and on the phone.10
Not really maybe if only u and that other person know each other like that 😜 😂 !! but other than that That person lonely or something thinking it's his lucky day😂😂!10
well an ex did that with me then came up and gave me a big hug and then squeezed my testicles... but yeah it depends.10
I can definitely be flirtatious depending how it's said.
Heeey yooouuu 😏😉😊20
"hey you". no
"hey you!" no
"Heeeeeyyy yooooooouuuuu" (with a big dumb grin on your face) yeah thats usually flirting.10
It definitely depends on how you say it luv, even a simple sentence asking about your well being can become flirty when spoken the way "Joey" in Friends do.
"How you doin?"
Ain't that right luv?10
Yes i think with the right context it can be. Depends who it's coming from20

Lol if you say "you" at a lower pitch than you said "hey" it will sound more flirtatious/seductive.
If you say "you" at a higher pitch than you said "hey" it will sound more excited/friendly. Which is probably how you say it naturally when talking to a friend.
The words don't matter as much as the sounds you make with your mouth. Kinda like a dog. If you call your dog by it's name you usually say their name in a specific way. Your tone changes.
Say another word using the exact same tone and your dog will come because he knows you're talking to him. I used to call my dog by saying banana with the tone I use for his name and he'd run to me in excitement lol
