Okay, so everyone says that if a guy asks a girl whether she has a boyfriend or not, then he is interested in her. However, he didn't just outright ask me and I can't tell what he was going at...
He sits next to me in class and his best friend sits behind me...so I either overhear their conversations or get included into them. The two of them were talking about a friend of theirs who was going to spend time with his girlfriend that afternoon instead of with them (its their 6 month anniversary, after all). The guy just shakes his head and says "boyfriends are so dumb". He looks at me and pauses and just shakes his head. He quietly repeats himself. I ask him why he thinks that. He answers with "cause guys who date are dumb". I don't know what to say to this so I just kinda smile and shake my head as if I think he's crazy. More silence. He says "girlfriends are dumb". It somewhat seems like he's just talking to get a response out of me? But its just uncomfortable & I don't know what to say. I can't tell if he's joking or bitter or what. I think he picked up on that cause he suddenly looked serious and was like "wait, you're not dating someone are you?" I say "no, I'm not".
What in the world was that conversation? I was starting to like this guy and now I'm afraid he isn't big on relationships..
and some background info about me and him: link & link & link
You can answer solely based of this or in combination with the other links. I would greatly appreciate ANY feedback!

In the few experiences I have had, this means he said something to his friend, which he then realized you overheard him. The shaking of the head, he is trying to give you an obvious clue he did something stupid and he didn't mean it. There is one other possibility in which he said boyfriends are dumb because he thought you were dating someone else. He could also be trying to fit in and agree with his friends until you overheard. The last possibility could be it was purposefully overheard to keep you guessing.1
