On a side note she always comes and hangs out by herself and she is really flirty towards me. Do you think she is poly?
You'll have to ask her. I've always thought gaydar to be unreliable. And poly-dar isn't going to be any better.
A side note: some states have "domestic partner" laws. They are really aimed toward gays but are very much available to straight people too.
So, it could actually indicate a legal status.
