Reply To: mentioned boyfriend, but….
Yup, I would proceed as normal. It’s sometimes difficult to ascertain why she said this. Of course, one possibility is that she could have a serious boyfriend. In that case, making a new friend isn’t the worst thing ever. But she may have also said that defensively so that she doesn’t come off as a slut or she may be trying to lower expectations.
Me personally hearing her say she has a boyfriend is a bit of a boner killer. I’m just not into that, even if it is only a communication of disinterest on her part. I would take that as a pretty big minus for this girl. I may proceed to hang out with her as a friend or otherwise, but I wouldn’t put a ton of effort into it.
