This kind of thing happens a lot. Even how you said a guy can be friends and be flirting with you, this flirting could very well be doing it and not even thinking about it or harmless fun. But when it comes to actually making a move on you, he might not feel "good enough" to be with you so he never tries.
We guys hate rejection as much as any girl would. Especially the rejection of a super hot female friend.
Flirting means nothing, people do it for fun. If they are friends, all the more so -- it means you're "safe" to flirt and have fun with, but anything more than that is a no-no. Try to cross the line and you get bounced right back. See it all the time...
To answer your title question, absolutely yes. a 4/10 guy wouldn't have much of a chance asking a 9/10 girl out, so he doesn't. Sure, he may be a believer of the "everyone has a shot with everyone" BS, in which case he'll be collecting rejections left and right until he realizes "oh maybe that's not how it works."
