I'm sixteen years old and a sophomore in high school, and I like this guy, but we don't really talk...Ever. We had a random conversation once because he's in one of my classes, but nothing major. His locker is basically right across from mine so I see him before and after school and sometimes I think I see him looking at me out of the corner of my eye. I'm also a stat girl for the wrestling team, and he's a wrestler so I see him a lot after school too, and during practices I'll catch him looking over at me. So how can I know if he likes me or not? Uh besides asking him directly

Well this is a very open ended question. One thing to keep in mind is that at age 16, a lot of guys just want one thing: sex. So, in the large game of love, you have first see if he is interested, then his motives.
If you are into just hooking up, then its not too complicated to find this out. If you want a relationship, that can be tricky and will require more information.
Here are some basic signs.
What is is personality like? Does he walk up to girls or his he shy? If he normally approaches girls with ease, he may not be interested. But, it could mean he is only shy with girls he likes. If he is shy in general, making eye contact is not enough to figure it out. So, talk to him! One conversation that is class related is boring. Guys like to brag to girls and don't want to hear about your problems. Maybe once you are a girlfriend they will care, but not from the start. So my advice, ask him something about him. Since you share the common thread of wrestling, ask him about his match or compliment him. See if he makes eye contact. See if he wants to continue the conversation or if he just answers in one or two word replies. If he is interested, he should talk to you and ask questions about YOU. If you two can establish a rapport, see if he flirts.
When a guy likes a girl but is shy, sometimes the girl breaking the ice by simply letting the guy know he can approach you without being rejected will ease his fears and he will start to talk. Go from there. Update after you do that.2
