Signs of singledom
How can you tell whether a guy's single or not? Often girls meet a guy while out with friends and just when you think you're close to an offer of a date, he drops the clanger that he's got a girlfriend!
And you thought you were getting on so well.
But how can girls spot the tell tale signs of 'taken-dom'?
Girls should beware of guys on lads' nights out, according to Val Simpson, as these ones are "almost always attached". Go for the guy in a mixed group, as he's less likely to have a girlfriend, she says.
Girls should also be careful, as many guys don't mind acting as if they're unattached and these are the most dangerous type.
"They're hooked on the hormones that hit when you meet someone you fancy," Val told Cosmo.
"Plus, your flirting back massages his ego, so he'll keep up the act as long as possible."
She said girls should listen to their "gut instinct" and get friends to chat to him first for a second opinion.
We'll all get a guy with a little help from our friends.
