    okay so there is this guy at work, who i've actually only really worked with like a handful of times.
    we get on well and have banter and a laugh, but then at the same time i find him a bit annoying and i'm pretty sure he finds me a bit annoying too!



    but then recently at work, he asks me pretty much out of the blue if i 'had any guys in my life right now'

    which i felt was pretty out of the blue and isn't exactly the thing you'd say as small talk, or is it? and does it mean anything?

    guys and girls opinions welcome please

    Asked like that, it sounds to me like he's into you. If it came up in conversation somehow, it could just be curiosity, but asking out of the blue like that implies that he wants to know if you're single because he wants you to be single.

    Yep, just an innocent question to see if you are actually available or not. i.e he may be interested, or it could have just been a question. i.e maybe hes taken if you are.

    Banter :| Seriously.

    Yeh it does mean something. It means he wants to know if there are any guys in your life right now. :P

    But seriously he wouldn't ask that unless he was at least a bit interested in you. You say you get on well and have a laugh, so there's definately potential for something to grow between you. The way he phrased the question espicially suggests he's interested in you, he didn't just casually go 'oh yeah have you got a boyfriend?' or something like that.

    when you say 'it could have just been a question i.e. maybe he's taken if you are'
    what do you mean, like he was just asking to make conversation?

    Could have been. He could be taken, and just asking if you are.
    i.e I worry sometimes if a girl I'm working with isn't in one, as if she is, I don't have to worry about any romantic connections.

    If you are interested in him, which it sounds like you are, you will just have to see. Or just ask him out, or ask to hang out. Be different.
