Knowing whether or not a girl has a boyfriend is really important. You don’t want to waste your time flirting and getting to know her just to end up without a chance. Some girls don’t come right out and say it. That’s why you need to know how to ask a girl if she has a boyfriend. But then again, you want to do it in a way that’s not too forward.
If you’re too excited at the prospect that she’s single, it could scare her off. She might be a little weirded out that you just jumped the gun and asked. That’s why you’ll need to know different ways you can ask her that won’t raise alarm.
Girls who like attention will never come out and say they have a boyfriend
This is just how certain girls are. Because let’s be honest, attention is great. Sometimes they might not be getting the attention they need and you’re giving it to her. She’ll never ruin that by telling you she has a boyfriend.
It’s not that she’s doing anything wrong, but she’s also not being very polite. This is especially true if you’re showing all the signs that you’re interested in her. A great way to avoid wasting your time would be to just ask her if she has a boyfriend. [Read: 15 signs she’s leading you on and taking you nowhere]
How to ask a girl if she has a boyfriend
Because not all girls will tell you, you need to know how. You can’t just flat out ask them in the middle of a conversation. Not only would that be rude, but even if she is single, it might freak her out a little bit.
If you want to know how to ask a girl if she has a boyfriend in a way that’ll keep her interest, you’re in the right place. These are the best ways to go about figuring out her relationship status.
#1 Slip it into an indirect question. Being indirect about how you ask a girl if she has a boyfriend is super important. If it feels like it just comes up in random conversation, she’ll be more likely to tell the truth. So you can just ask something like, “Now why would your boyfriend leave you here all by yourself?”
#2 Tell her that her “boyfriend” must be proud of her. You can really say this about anything and even phrase it slightly different. But if you bring up her boyfriend liking a certain quality about her, you’ll be able to tell if she has one. She may even say, “I don’t have a boyfriend.”
#3 Tell her that any guy who has her is lucky. This is actually a great line because not only does it serve as a pickup line that’ll flatter her, you’ll also find out if she has a boyfriend or not. Because she’ll either answer, “I don’t have a boyfriend,” or “yes he is.” [Read: How to easily compliment a girl and make her smile]
#4 Ask her if she’s there alone. If she’s sitting by herself, it doesn’t mean she’s alone. She could have someone getting drinks or even in the bathroom. So if you get to talking a little bit, just ask her how she’s doing and if she’s there with someone. It’s not directly asking if she has a boyfriend, but she’ll say so if he’s there with her.
#5 Tell her you hope you’re not taking her boyfriend’s seat. If you sit down beside her, use this line. Not only is it a great way to break the ice, but you’ll be able to tell right away if she has a boyfriend. Most people don’t say, “You’re not.” She’ll respond with something like, “I don’t have one,” if she doesn’t.
#6 Tell her you’d love to see her again sometime. Just tell her you want to see her again if you two have been having a great conversation and you’re still not sure if she has a boyfriend. This is a great way to see if she likes you, too. If she declines and says she has a boyfriend, now you know. [Read: 8 clues a girl gives if she wants you to make a move]
#7 Ask her about her week. Something a lot of people do when they’re asked about their weeks is absent mindedly talk about their significant other. That’s because they’re a huge part of their life. By asking this, she’ll either mention him or talk about doing things only two people can do together. You’ll be able to figure it out on your own.
#8 Offer to buy her a drink. If you’re out at a bar and click with a girl, offer to buy a drink. The thing about this technique is that it can be a bit trickier. Some girls will say yes even though they do have a boyfriend. Your job is to look her in the eye and make your intent clear. If she senses that you want something more with her, she’ll come clean.
