People aren’t exactly upfront about their relationship status most of the time. Some just want to keep their privacy, others don’t see why it matters and there’s even some that are always on the lookout for something better. So how do you find out if the person you’ve just met is single and ready to mingle? Sure, you could just be very straightforward and ask them right away, but a lot of people will find that awkward, not to mention it’s a very personal question to ask someone you’ve just met. And even if that’s the route you choose to go with, there’s no guarantee that they’ll answer truthfully. However, we think there’s are a couple of things you can do, and a few signs that can tell you if he is single or not.
Snooping is bad, but we’re all occasionally guilty of it. So if you end up at his apartment, you can easily notice if there’s any girly magazines around, or some feminine hygiene products in the bathroom cabinets. If there’s nothing like that – you can be sure he’s single.
2. Frozen food
Meeting a guy in a supermarket seems like a weird scenario, something that would only happen in a cheesy American comedy, but hey, if it happens you can be prepared. Take a peek into his shopping cart. If there’s a ton of frozen dinners in it – he’s probably single. We’re not saying guys can’t cook or buy fresh produce, they definitely can. But if he’s buying frozen dinners chances are he’s single.
3. Ask mutual friends
If you were introduced to this guy through common friends, you can ask around and figure out if he’s single. Seems like fair play to us. You’re not exactly doing anything behind his back, you’re just sort of testing the waters.
