There’s this guy I noticed in my university 6 months ago. He’s extremely attractive, but I thought well I’ll never get to talk to him, since it’d be awkward randomly walking up to him and starting a conversation. Now it’s my second year at university and I realized that he’s in my department and is two years senior to me. After that I saw him across the room at the university cafe and was talking to one of my course mates (who I don’t really talk to) and then it looked as though he was looking at me.
Later on, I talked to him at this networking event. Though I’m rather quiet when I meet people for the first time, so I didn’t manage to say much besides where I’ve lived (which he commented on and asked me questions about). Then he cracked a few jokes, which were rather funny. He seems like a sweet, goofy type of guy, which I’m into. Plus, like I said he is extremely good looking and all these girls were crowding around him, some fanned him. So yeah, he mostly talked to whoever was talking to him. And this one girl commented on how he is getting so much attention since he’s so attractive (he was turning red, and said even he feels embarrassed) and to that he replied that she had a boyfriend so why should she mind that he was getting so much attention. So after a while he walked away to chat with his guy friends.
A few days later I saw him walking past me and this loud obnoxious girl who I hang out with (who talked to him at the networking event too), and I pretended not to see him (though I doubt he saw me see him first. But then, when he was 10 meters away she noticed him, squealed hi and waved, so then I thought I better say hi too otherwise I’d seem like a freak. So I turned my head towards him and waved with a smile. But when I turned he was already staring straight into my eyes and smiling. Which I thought was rather odd, since he didn’t know I’d see him and say hi, and he was staring at me instead of at the girl who was actually saying hi.
So my question is, assuming he doesn’t have a girlfriend (given what he told this girl, that since she had a boyfriend why should she mind him getting attention, which implies that if you’re single you can get attention) and isn’t interested in all the mindless idiots who fan him etc do you think, he seems interested in me? Why would he stare at me and smile instead of doing so at a girl who was already greeting him?
So yesterday I was asking him about this undergraduate project that he took part in and asked him whether he'd be free to talk about it with me and a friend about it.

What a lame, loser. He's not even worth your time. Forget about him. I'm sorry he was such a jerk to you.2
