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.
in most cases it means he's checking to see what his options are...is there a chance he could take you on a date or is he going to possibly have to wait a little tos ee where your relationship goes with your bf...AKA he likes you
In most cases, yes. Obviously, context matters, but most of the time it's because he's interested in you and he's trying to determine if you are taken before trying to persue any further relationship with you.
Most likely, yes. Under normal circumstances, a guy might not care if you have a boyfriend because he's not interested in you, so he's not interested in knowing. But if a guy is trying to figure out if he should chase you then he'll ask.
