Will he come back if we keep in touch?
So there is a guy in my lecture and lab. But every now and then I catch him looking at me. Once I was standing behind him in line to write my name on the sign-in sheet and looked back at me. Once he came up to my lab partner and I to talk to my partner (they have another class together as well) and when he looked at me he smiled huge and took a few deep breathes before he talked to my partner. When he went to sit back down he looked back at me. Yesterday he came up again to my partner and talked to her about their class and he kept staring a ton. Last week he came up again and asked what we thought of the exam but I was too shy and didn't say anything. My friends said he kept looking at me. I got a haircut and he was staring 24/7. Then after class my friend was talking to him and she called me over. When I came up to him his eyes went wide and sparkly and he smiled big. He almost looked frozen. Once a random guy came to me and asked me a question and he glared at him. when another guy asked me a question, he turned his whole body around and glared at him Last week we talked more. When we were leaving class he asked was I was going and I said to the right and he said he normally goes the other way but he said he would walk with me and so we walked and talked. He asked a lot of questions around me and walked close to me. Whenever he looks at me he blink slow. Once he walked with me again and we talked. Before we parted way exchanged numbers. We studied together with my lab partner. When we were studying my friend was talking about her boyfriend and he looked at me and smiled. When we were leaving he walked me all the way to my apartment. Last week I told him that if he wanted to grab coffee sometime then to let me know. He said that sometimes things come up but he will let me know. We studied together again and he walked me to my apartment. I texted him for coffee again and he said he is busy with family stuff these days (this is true). I said we will keep in touch.
Most Helpful Guy
I was almost about to not read the whole thing, thinking "what more do I need to hear, of course he's interested in you, is this even a question, what is this girls problem, yes the sky is blue" and then I saw that bit about him not scheduling a time to grab some coffee. I understand now why you're a little thrown.
I cannot tell you why he did that. I could speculate endlessly. But the fact of the matter is this guy likes you. A lot. I don't know if that could have something to do with why he didn't take you up on your offer right away, maybe it does.
I want you to cuddle that man without delay. You are obviously a sexy, attractive woman, and he is infactuated with you. I won't list all the reasons I know this, you already have, so you know it in your heart.
Try asking him if he wants to walk somewhere together, (start fresh, maybe he's too nervous to accept a date ahead of time and can't fix the situation now) and while walking together, take his arm, you know the way women do, your arm is sort of bent and wrapping around his elbow. It's casual, because it can be non sexual, but it's a clear sign of care and warmth. It will also relax him, that you want to touch him and hold him and feel safe with him.
It's also easier to just "walk to [ blank] together" than make a date for coffee, which is sort of, pressured in a way. It also works to go get the coffee right away, like, "want to go get a coffee at [place]?" instead of, "sometime". It's less awkward. I think you have a nice guy here, because he asked so many questions and walked close, signs of giving you as much attention as he can get away with, without being aggressive. Although the fact that he glares at guys who try to talk to you is a sign he's not a push over. In fact, that might be a yellow flag - not sure about that behavior, depends on the context. Keep an eye on it. Being jealous is annoying. But it's a sure sign he likes you.
So because he's a nice guy, ask him again, "right away".0
