Why do girls say "I have a boyfriend"?
every time I try to friend a girl on campus when I ask for her number, immediately they think oh he is hitting on me. not every guy wants to hit on you, some just want friends. its really annoying and what does it actually mean.

They might not like you that way, and are just trying to let you know that before you get too attached. Even though not all guys are hitting on girls, most are and it's just instinct to say "I have a boyfriend" when a guy they don't like comes up to them. I've done it once myself, but only because the guy asked me out. Sometimes it's the only way to reject someone without being too mean. It just seems better to lie and say "I have a boyfriend" than say "I don't like you and I really don't want to go out with you."
