Here is the story. This guy and myself both work at the same manufacturing plant but don't work directly together. I suspected that he might like me with the staring, eye contact, blushing, random conversations, etc. We would openly say hi, talk, wave, etc.
Well, I like this guy and one day I left a note in his locker and let him know. Ever since then he still waves (more so now), smiles, talks to me, etc...BUT it is now on the 'down low'. What I mean by that is now when others are around that he or I work with, he doesn't pay me any attention or only acknowledges me as a group. BUT when no one is around, or when people have their backs turned, etc...he will then wave, smile, speak to me (until someone we know walks up), etc.
So now I am confused. Does this mean he likes me back? I mean why acknowledge and wave / smile at each other on the 'down low' if your not interested in the person? It is like we have something to hide, even though we are not dating yet or anything, so there really isn't anything to hide YET.
I am also concerned because the change in his behavior was noticed by someone I work with in regard to ignoring, since that is all they see...not the side where he waves / smiles / talks when no one is around. Doesn't that sound odd? I am trying to figure out this behavior.

He probably likes the attention from you but has a reason to hide his feelings from others. He may be married, in a relationship or maybe he's concerned what his co-workers will think of him for liking you. Now that he knows you clearly like him, he must feel concern that he will act in a way that will give him away, so he is doing the opposite, and really trying to hide it.0
