Someone I know already asked this guy but I would rather hear it for myself to clear the air.
He already gets sooo nervous talking to me. I don't want to make it worse.
So how can I do it to try to make it a little more comfortable for him?
I was thinking of just asking him to hang and throw in "if you're girlfriend is ok with it."

Nah, don't do that. Be straight with him. We appreciate honesty more than you know. Just ask him. It's not awkward. See, when you ask a woman "Do you have a boyfriend?" it can be embarrassing because she'll likely take that as being hit on, even if it's just friendly conversation, so a lot of guys avoid it. You probably know it can be uncomfortable to get that question so you probably think it's the same thing. It's really not. This is one of the few instances where men and women are actually different for the most part. He'll be flattered at least but there's no way he'll be anything less than happy that you asked. And if he's not attached now you know. It's a win-win. I really don't see a downside. Just be straight with him. No need for manipulation or anything. If people just said what they meant rather than try to get someone to interpret it the right way the world would be a much better place.0
