Don't act like someone you're not. If you are talking to the guy, as corny as it sounds, the best thing you can do is be yourself.
After all, you want him to like you, don't you, instead of some vision of what you think the perfect person should be?
You don't have to let him know everything about you at once, but you should generally act the way you do around your friends, just a bit less familiar.
You may be feeling shy, at first, but the more you talk to the guy, the more comfortable you'll be being yourself.
