When a guy asks "do you have a boyfriend," does that mean he's interested in you?

Guy and girl answers appreciated. Guy answers preferred.

  • It's not a simple yes/no answer.

    You see, since the guy is the one who usually has to pursue the girl, he needs to know what girls are worth pursuing and which ones are a waste of time..

    (if a girl is already taken, she is a waste of time)

    So if a guy asks you if you have a boyfriend, I wouldn't automatically assume he's interested in you.

    I mean, he obviously has to have some interest to even be asking in the first place. But he could still be deciding if he wants to ask you out or not. Or especially if he doesn't know you that well yet, he may not know if he likes you or not.

    And yet another possibility is that he's not even asking for himself, but he's trying to find out because someone he knows is interested in you.
