So there's a coffee shop I've been going to for the past month now and I come across the same barista guy. At the beginning of this Feb I started to study there on Fridays and would sometimes catch him looking. I've been there like a total of 4 times to study there and I stay for several hours. Once when I was about to walk out I asked him what time they open and close. I asked this while I was walking and he started walking with me but he was behind the counter if that makes sense. I came with my friend late Saturday night and he was there. While I was waiting for my drink he kept looking up every now and then to look at me. When I went up to grab my drink he smiled super bigg, waved, and said "Hiiiii!!!" I got shy and just said thank you. My friend said "Omg he totally wanted to talk to you!" When I came back a week later he was looking at me a lot. I told him I was sorry for not speaking to him and he made a funny sound with a hand motion that basically said "Why didn't you talk?' I said I was really shy. Then he introduced himself and asked what my name was and shook my hand. We asked each other questions and I told him about this big grad school exam Im taking soon and he said "Oh so you're too busy to hang out with friends?" But I said "It depends on the day but I can always make time." We talked for 15 mins and I told him that he can always come by my table and talk to me even if Im studying and he said he will. A week later when i walked in his face light up, his eyes scrunched up, and he smiled big and said hi to me and I said hey back. He was talking to a guy and so I didn't get a chance to have a convo. I caught him staring and smiling once. It was busy again when I was leaving so we only talked for like 5 mins. When i told him Im on break next week he asked if I would come here during break and I said yes. He smiled and nodded his head. Then he indirectly said that he likes it when I come every week...

Yes, he totally likes you. You have to remember though, this is his place of employment and he has a job to do and customers to deal with. So there will be times when it seems he isn't interested in you, but he is just doing his job. Also he knows you are busy studying and he doesn't want to disturb you all the time. How about you get his number and call him some time, or meet up somewhere else together.0

He works in hospitality, they are told to be friendly and get to know customers. It's common for most people who work in coffeehouses or restaurants to be outgoing and super nice to make customers feel like they are valued and special so they keep coming back and spending money.0
