There's a lot of ways that scene could be interpreted for now. I'd like to think of Mystique's reply to Nightcrawler's question as "motherly advice". He really seemed intrigued by her answer... possibly even inspired. Here's the scene. It ends too fast so we don't get to see Nightcrawler's tail swirl behind him after Mystique walks off.

I like that interpretation a lot. I'm not sure what Singer intended to portray, but your reading of that scene does appear to fit.

Show me an X-Men comic where Mystique is the leader and walks round all day as a bored blonde
