What does 'taken' mean?

What does 'taken' mean? I saw it below 'single' on a certain paper. I guessed it 'not single'. Is it slang?

    Yes, it means 'not single and unavailable'. The direct opposite of 'single' is 'married'. But there are many other options in between, and 'taken' includes all of them.

    So 'taken' can also mean 'seriously dating', 'living together', etc.
