i've been ask numerous times if i have a boyfriend by another guy. i don't get why they ask that, are they implying something or they're just curious?

The same reason girls ask "do you have a GF".

did any girl ever ask a guy that? cus i never did.

Simple.

1. If the guy is interested in you then of course he wants to know if you got a BF or not. If you have then he'll know what he's not going to do, for example flirt, ask you out etc...

2. If he's a friend then it's really no big deal for him to just ask. He might just be wondering, just to know you better that's all.

I still think its for conversation's sake :) , if she has a bf then thats nice, if not thats nice too. Either way, it still shouldnt stop him from flirting with the girl, maybe she'll like him better than the bad bf.

Maybe the guy wants to know if you have a boyfriend or not; so if you dont he can try to get with you, or hes just really noisy and wants to know.

Well..there isnt a definite answer to this....there's so many possible reasons for this question..it could be just a casual question without any meaning, just curiosity, or if he wanted to know if u r single before he makes the move...etc etc..
but one thing for sure, dont be swayed and misunderstood that this imply he is interested in you! U wanna know, just find it out urself by asking him directly. :) Donnt play a guessing game, risky.

it depends on how he say it and what situation your actually in

if he just sees you and starts talking he wants you

if he knows you already he might be curious and to know if he can get you lol

ahahaa
like your friends can ask you and they might be secret admirers its very common to have secret admirers right UNDER your nose lol

try it, me and friend did.

just glance out the corner of your eye and *we're so sad lol* tally ahahaa

how much a guy actually looks at you lol

the really obvious ones are when they actually just stare at you... freaky lol

ahahaa lol ^-^

the even more scary part is that they they are ugly and you actually guess it right when they confess their 'undying' love O.o

My friend always asks this question to girls he meets (tht he's actually interested in). He'll just go up to some girl he sees and ask them, and if they say yes thn he just replies by saying "Well, I dont want your bf's phone number". Its not necessarily saying much, just showing an interest and is a conversation starter to say the least.

oh hahaha. there are a few reasons

1) they wanan know if u have a bf ^a lota ppl said that so i'm not going to go deeper in this

2) guys know that....when a guy asks a girl "do u have a bf?" the first thing the girl would htink is "why do u ask?....oh i get it, i think he likes me!!" so, when they ask u, it doesn't necessarily mean that they're trying to chase u. they just want u to think that way (because it's common to ask) and then u'll fall for them.

Yea, I don't know why they asked that too and I do get asked a lot. I mean like what if I have a bf or what if I'm single? I get asked so often that I don't know whether they are interested in me or they have nothing to talk about and just curiously ask.

true there can be many reasons behind asking this. once, i was asked "are you attached?" and when i responded no. they said, "cool. that means you can work longer hours." :duh

while there can be many reasons, i think the most common reason would be because they are interested in you.

as a guy, I know that guys ask this question because they want to get to know the girl better. if the girl said she has a boyfriend, I might think twice about pursuing her or have any interest in her. just don't want to ruin the girl's relationship with her b/f, morals

It seems like this topic started for me! Once I was talking with a guy, and suddenly he asked: 'Do you have a bf". I really thought for a long time why he asked such a question..

I'm a guy and I would ask the girl if she has a boyfriend only if I'm interested in her.
It helps me in moving from one phase to the next one.
If she does have one, then I remain friends with her. If she's single, then it's time to start making a move.

cuz we want to know if you are available or not. it would be a waste of time if u were already hooked up with somebody. just take it as a compliment, believe me, we wouldn't ask a girl if she has a bf unless we were interested.

There is only 2 reasons, either curious or either interessed in u. Usually guys always ask question thats seems normal while girls will find it surprising and doubtful.

i think it can scare the girl away if a guy asks "do you have a bf" not too long after meeting her. you'll have to get to know her more and find out yourself...don't ask her this if you really like her.

it's for the hell of it, at first you ask because you're just curious and but the answer doesn't really matter i don't think...if you like the girl, then you like the girl. You'll probably end up mackin on her even if she had a man =P admit it!

Oh chasing a girl with a boyfriend is pointless. I flirt with a girl nonstop on our way to work, nothing comes out of it, since I know she has a boyfriend and her boyfriend keeps reminding me she has a boyfriend. Yes it is pointless so maybe the question really isn't that important.

They ask that question because they are interest in you. Maybe they want to ask you out but don't want to make a full of them self if you already by a bf.

well they ask to make sure that yer available cuz then most guys don't really want to be the 3rd person and transform it into a love triangle... get me??
and its a hint when someone asks those quetsions that they are interested in you. it maybe asked in several wayz even as a joke tone but
really, they mean something

Like others have said, they just want to know if you're "available". They are interested, or at least, someone is interested. It could always be a friend asking for a friend.

If they weren't interested at all, why would they care? :D

You can confirm this especially if after they ask you, and the answer was "yes" and they no longer tlak to you. :P

I would ask that if I wanted to know. It basically means they are interested in you if you are single and you guys dont know each other that well.

But also he could be just good friends with you and just joking around.

i think wen a guy ask wen u have a bf is because that guy likes u and wanted to go out wit u. sometimes wen a guy ask u tat, it means tat he wanted to noe if he have a chance wit the girl because he really like u.

they ask that bc they r curious or they want to go out with u bc they like u. if u r have a bf then they will not waste time with u and fine smeone else to flirt with.
