Usually I can deicpher when someone is into me but this one guy is tricky.
Go to same gym and college. Whenever I see him I usually say hi, he smiles and says hi back and I catch him glancing at me a lot from time to time. However he doesn't make an effort to come talk to me/get to know me and usually I say hi if I see him but today he looked really annoyed and when we walked by each multiple times today other he didn't even acknowledge me, even when I smiled he just looked straight ahead with a grumpy expression on his face...
should I: a) leave it and move on he wants to talk to me he can make the effort but if he is annoyed at me for being friendly then I should back off. B) be straight up and honest say I want to get to know him more and hang out c) continue to be nice and Friendly note: im just confused
lol of course the guy is interested in you. Shy guys find it really hard to talk to their crush so they will compensate by stealing a glance when he thinks you don't notice or making an effort to be around you when there is no reason for him to be around. Also he might have an idealist view of you thinking your perfect giving up hope that a girl like you would be interested in him hence him becoming grumpy and coming of as cold personality when he is not.
I think a combination of option B and C will work. Just be friendly with him and occasionally ask him to hang out with you. You might have to try a few times just don't be too forward or he might get nervous and shy. I would try that for a month or two and if he still won't hang out with you after that I think you need to move on.
first off quit thinking guys have to do everything such as approach etc. just talk to him, tell him how you feel and what you want of him, girls seriously gotta quit the mystery shit. and if he seems afraid of making eye contact then he's shy, trust me im very shy and i fear making eye contact with a girl, unless she's very friendly then i look at her deeply, plus having a beautiful girl suddenly talk to me (extremely rare) makes me excited and happy. his grumpyness and seeming annoyed is his frustration with you not being forward with him. so i vote B and C its not confusing its just girls assume things too much that she's not supposed to do when in fact she is supposed to do something.
guys are not girls so don't worry about what you might do in his shoes and how you think that correlates to his behavior and what you suspect he thinks of you. At the very LEAST, he likes the look of you and given that guys are physical and visual creatures you're off to a pretty good start! This could be a case of male visual adoration, not all guys are direct in their approach to women, some feel intimidated, even, by a beautiful woman. Do B) give yourself a chance, for you :).
As saidmike would say, let it roll let it roll, let him win your heart, it's all for a better day =)
He doesn't sound like he is worth pursuing. Ever hear the adage that is someone isn't nice to the waitress they aren't nice? If he can go to the gym, but can't be friendly then he's not worth it. Stick with the adults.
He is just most likely shy and just trying to play it cool. He probably likes you and just doesn't know how to confront you. That use to be me when I had social anxiety. Sometimes people just have that natural angry/annoyed face but in their minds they think differently. Tbh i am having a similar situation with you. If a girl does this what would it mean? I would start a conversation with this girl since she always doesn't and it is always awkward at work and when ever I start the conversation she just becomes so open and smiles a lot. But she never starts the conversation with me.
I say just stop trying to interpret everything. If you can't sense that he likes you then he doesn't like you in that way. The point is you never know unless you go up to him and make friendly talk. Get to know him more if your interested instead of looking for signs.
Guys are pretty serious about the gym and will rarely go there to ask girls out. He may enjoy looking at you while he works out but may be doing so in form of personal motivation, or because he has a girlfriend. If you really, really want to break the ice, do it on your way out of the gym. It is my personal experience that the shyest of guys will come up and talk to you if they really want you... especially after a smile.
