Most men are n ot motivated to be so deceptive, nor clever enough to risk it ! Any time you meet ANYBODY there is much they're not telling you, because it's impossible and indeed undesirable to tell everything. The issue is more whether they are deliberately hiding from you something they know is very relevant to you. I'm not sure what happened in some of the examples you quote --- wasn't the guy at the party being pleasant without actually making a date with you ? Should he really have interrupted you at the start to insist on telling you that he was maried ? Can't people be pleasant to one another without it necessarily being about dating ?
Now magazine guy sounds different, as you went out together for some time before he disclosed that for family reasons he had no intention of taking the relationship seriously --- that came closer to using you in an inconsiderate way. YOur cousin isnt right --- some men, and some women are indeed truly alone. But what's to stop you if you find you're getting on well with a guy you meet, from asking pleasantly if they're married or in a serious relationship ?
