Well, he's a guy like any other. How do you know any guy is interested? Still, married guys (I'm guessing here) would probably be more discreet. Divorces cost a lot- in pain and money. My guess is he'd talk about problems at home-specifically about how badly his wife is treating him, etc. he'd make very subtle passes to see how you react. he might invite you out to get 'a woman's opinion' about something, then stop for drinks or dinner. How do you react to him? Do you WANT him to hit on you?

How would you tell if an unmarried man is interested or just being friendly? After all, it's essentially the same thing with the BIG difference being that there's a ring involved. If the married man makes you feel as if he wants more than friendship, then you should do what you feel is necessary and correct for you. If he's just being a friend, without expectations, then build a friendship with him and get to know his wife too.

That's pretty hard to say. How do you know when a single is interested? I would say that to be sure you would have to wait for an outright admission from him like a pass.

I would say that a married man will be more bold when he is pursuing. Dropping obvious hints about how there is love lost in the marriage. How ever way he chooses it will not be as subtle as alittle friendly flirting? Good Luck and take care!

Hi SecretSam07! Well, this question makes me want to ask you: why do you care if he is interested? Would you take the bait if he was offering? And if so, that's nothing but bad news. I think you would know if a man was interested in you or not, if he wasn't married and making you think he is interested, would you think he was? The same applies if he is married. One of my favorite quotes is 'rings don't plug holes'! If he is interested, be careful!
