I consider myself to be average looking, or maybe that's just my perception, since I don't get hit on much in public or school, except when a guy is asking me for directions on the train, but it seems like guys in school are a bit hesitant to talk to me, as in they go out of their way to sit next to me, and they look at me... I don't think I'm anything special, but why won't guys in college approach me easily like they do to the other average looking girls? My male professor has been the only" guy" so to speak who asked me where I come from and joke with me. Guys just sit near me in class and that's it... If a guy sits near you does that mean he's usually interested or just his preference (assuming I tend to sit in the same seat every class)...

Average looking depends on who you ask. I've had girls that I thought were drop-dead gorgeous, while my friends, looking at the exact same woman, couldn't find the attraction with a map and a Sherpa guide. Inversely, I've seen my friends drool over girls while my only thought about her was "meh".
Like others have said, if there's a guy you like who happens to sit near you, say hi! Give him some kind of opening to talk to you. Who knows where it could lead?1
