Why would guys ask if you have a boyfriend?

" Are you in a relationship? "
" Are you single? "
" Do you have a boyfriend? "
When guys ask questions like this, what is it's main purpose? Does it mean he is interested?

  • He could be attracted to you and just needs to know if he is wasting his time acting on that attraction by finding out your relationship status, x

  • he simply wants to know if possibly he could get you as a date, and maybe then as a girlfriend. He wants to know what the competition is. And if he's a good guy, and follows the unwritten (but very important) bro code, he doesn't mess with someone's else's girl.

  • To see if the guy should be talking to you or not, just out of curiosity, to see if you're available so that he can take a chance aka being interested in you, to see if he should treat you as a friend or a potential lover, and that's pretty much it.

  • Interested, and correct. He doesn't want to upset you or your boyfriend.
    Better to ask the questions than to seduce someone's girl in front of his eyes!

  • Usually it does , I would try to avoid asking a girl if she had a bf unless I fancied her in some way. Or otherwise ill think that she thinks im trying to hit on her

  • no duh!

    unlike chicks we dont look for a relationship with someone who is already taken. also we strive for happiness, not competition, like you women seem to crave for

  • i usually like to try to find not so direct ways of asking if she has a boyfriend. usually when i am talking with a girl it doesn't take long to find out if she has one or not

  • Lot of attractive girls have boyfriend and so before going a head he wants to make clear that you aren't in any relationship. And what's ghe point on hitting out on a girl who is already committed to someone else..

  • not necessarily just attraction… some think its not ok to talk to u if u have a bf. like seriously. that they can't b a good friend of yours. which i despise.
    or they could be interested and ask out of curiosity.

    • if they're asking if you have a bf (and you do), they're attracted to you, and don't think it's possible to be friends with someone they're attracted to

    • I'm sorry i disagree

  • A majority of the time yes... but it sort of depends. Sometimes it's just them creating some sort of talk with you. Take notice at other things to be sure.. e.g. his eye contact, if he touches you (not in a sexual way lol but e.g. if he touches your hand/shoulder or something) You can't just tell if he is interested with one question:)
