I see this guy around a lot lets say. But he seems to kinda avoid me sometimes, like he says hi and bye to me all friendly if we're at the door and one of us is going, but if I'm talking to someone else he'll move far away, or if he's passing me at some point he will be looking off to the distance/not making eye contact purposely. I tried initiating convo with him once and he seemed scared of me/gave me only brief one word answers. I don't think I'm particularly scary and he doesn't know me to avoid me for bad reasons? I dont get it

He likes you. But he gets tongue-tied and is trying to be cool, not say anything stupid and keep you attracted all at the same time, which can turn some of us into mumbling stuttering wrecks. This happens when we have a certain interest with a girl and put the horse before the cart and put her on a pedestal when she never asked or justified it.
You want him to talk to you and be less nervous? Put him at ease by being friendly, joking and very easy-going around him. Hopefully in time he will begin to calm down around you. He's probably not that type all the time. Just that you have that effect on him because he likes you.1
