My relationship status might not come up in an initial conversation with someone. I wouldn't assume they had any romantic interest in me just because we've struck up a conversation, nor even if he asked me to go somewhere or have a coffee with him. For me, the topic of relationships would only come up if there was clear and obvious signs of interest.
