I think many people also make 'statements' that are really questions that they don't want to ask out right. I can easily see someone 'saying' Your dance card is full,
when they're really asking,
your dance card full, then? Are you interested in me?"
It's a soft approach, giving someone a chance for a graceful exit, a gentle excuse, rather than forcing them to say, "I'd love ten
more boyfriends, but you
, sir, would not be among them if there were only nine men left on Earth!"
