Because of this, sometimes it can be easier not to ask directly, and instead find out if she's dating or not from friendly conversation, the way she acts, or with a little help from common friends.
It's not a sure way, but you can sometimes see if someone is in a relationship.
Some people call this Facebook stalking, and technically it's not the best way to find out about someone, but it can spare you and her some embarrassment.
Girls who don't have boyfriends usually act differently than those who do.
Many times you can tell a lot about someone just by how she acts.
We discussed this in the main guide, particularly in the section on Facebook Stalking.
While social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and My Space are great places to share your interests, background, recent activities, and real-life communication with your loved ones, they also let people see what you are doing.
The easiest way to find out if a girl has a boyfriend is by talking to her about almost anything other than her boyfriend.
Anyone in a relationship won't think that it's odd to talk about the person they are dating.
As they say on one of the more popular dating sites: There are plenty of fish in the sea.
When a woman is interested in being more than just friends, her body language speaks volumes.
This is especially true of girls, as they will happily mention plans with someone they love.
