There is a man trying to strike up a friendship with me. I know he is lonely but how do I find out for sure if he is married or not? Do you have any advice for me? How should I respond when he is following me around like a lost puppy? So far, I have only given him very short replies to his greetings. Any advice is appreciated.

I think this is so easy. It works for me all the time. when someone insists on getting to know me. I ask if it is ok to have dinner at his place. The facial reaction alone is my answer. I don't except any excuse for the answer no. Most men will just stall if they are married. The ones who live with their mom will say so. I then know it's not for me. I ask them. If I live by myself and ,can invite you to eat at my home. Don't you think I deserve the right to go to your home too? I have not yet been offered to go to the mans house. I just leave and,I really don't say another word.

well, been his friend and spending time together can let one know how this person really is. if hes in the same town, there are ways to find out if hes married by asking around if people know him. going out for coffee and walks is a good way to see where hes coming from and in another way whats he after

I would ask him to meet me in a public place aand then sit down and talk with him and then you could find out what you need to know and then you need to know by then and make youre decision and let him know atleast that way you will have all the facts

You can try to organize some things like apertif,pizza or a dinner suddenly.If he one time answer that can't come maybe he is busy,but if he always intents an justification maybe he is engaged with someone. If you know someone of his friends or his acquaintance you can ask directly to them

You said he is trying to strike up a friendship with you, then you should start off being a friend to him. Probably later on you can ask him if he is married and discern from his response and other responses along the same topic, whether he is married or not. If after you become his friend and he is seeking to get into your pants then you know that he wants someone easy. Men these days are very deceiving.
