I tend to be long-winded so I'll try to be short. So this boy was in my math class and seminar last semester and I had never talked to him in my life. I think he is really cute, but I am not one to stare, and one day I noticed through one of my glances that he was staring at me. I thought it a coincidence so I let it go but it keeps on happening. He is in my class this semester and he keeps moving closer and closer and even sat next to me yesterday but never said hello until I said anything to him. Is it likely he likes me and he is just shy or ...?
He sounds a lot like he's shy. A simple "hello" is really tough for shy people because they have so many thoughts going through their head about it. If he sits next to you again, try kicking up a conversation. You probably could even get away with a joke to him, like smiling and saying that he shouldn't be shy around you. It might help to loosen him up a bit.
he could be like some guys and not want to put the effort into talking to someone who really doesn't care, a lot of guys are like that even ones that are more open because it is a defense to not talk to an attractive girl for fear of being rejected
