    guys, when you call a girl your sister/little sister does it basically mean you have no interest in her romantically?

    No, it probably means I've been playing too much Bioshock.

    That's just weird and out of place. I'd hate it if any of my friends called me that!

    i hate that! this guy i really liked started saying to me stuff like, 'you're like a sister to me', which eventually developed into him just calling me sis! meanwhile, in my head i was screaming NO, NO! and metaphorically banging my head on the table. I still haven't figured out whether he actually likes me back.

    so i think that either he IS romantically interested in you, and is trying to cover it up, or really, does not have any interest in you. either way, at least you know he feels close enough to you to call you his sister.

    You know when you've got an idea in your head, but can't find a way to express it, and then you read a perfect description of it somewhere? This post did that for me

    I bet you're even more into him since he started doing that

    I call my guy friend a brother because I think of him as my brother.. :P

    I guess it probably means you dont have the feeling for her romantically.

    But then, it's probably a good way to do it if you want to hide your feeeling.

    However, if the girl likes you, she mgiht be a bit upset.

    OP are you of S. Asian heritage? Because I am and in my experience this is the only context in which a guy of a similar age will call you a 'sister'.

    Personally, I find it a bit patronising. It is like their going out of their way to emphasise that they dont want a romantic relationship - but who says the girl was looking for one in the first place !??
    Basically, if a guy calls you a 'sister' it means they don't see you as girlfriend material. Hope that helps .

    I guess, that would be one way of letting a girl know you're not interested.

    So long as you both have a mutual disgust for incest.
