I was talking to my crush the other day and when I asked if he was dating a girl that I was under the impression that he was from his best friend he said, "not really" and then said how its bad for the company (they work together). So what does the not really mean?

"Not really" in the context he's using it means several things. For one, "not really" should anybody they work with ask since its against company policy. Secondly, "not really" in answer to your question because he's somewhat interested in you. Bottom line is "not really' is what a guy who has a girlfriend says (when asked) while he also keeps his options open. With that said, tread lightly, as you may end up being his next girlfriend... not really, lol. If the phrase were in the dictionary, its definition might be: to confirm the truth while giving the impression it's false.0
