This is my first relationship, so I really don’t know what the boundaries are in terms of having guy friends. I’ve recently met a guy on my course that I really get along with and he seems like he’d be a good friend. But I don’t know why I feel guilty for joking around with him. I don’t fancy him, I just don’t want it to come across as me flirting with him. If it even does come across as flirting? As I said, this is my first relationship so I am very new to all this

Of course you can have male friends, like a boyfriend can have female friends.

Having friends of the opposite sex in a relationship is fine. If your partner has a problem with it then there's obviously other issues to address.

As long as the relationship is strictly platonic, there is no issue. If your boyfriend or friends are making you feel this way, the relationship/s is/are toxic and you shouldn't stay in it

Yes.
Don't feel guilty, you are doing nothing wrong.
