If you're interested in them? I don't know how to show interest. I'm so awkward I'm barely getting used to meeting new people and talking to people in class.
I hate being stared at. It makes me so nervous. So this guy in my class would stare at me a lot during class. He sits on the other side of my table. Since the first day, he would constantly stare. It would make me feel uncomfortable and kind of annoyed so I would pretend I wouldn't notice. When I would walk by him during lab, he would pass by and look me in the eyes.
A couple of weeks later , I started to see that he's a very smart and interesting guy. I started to take interest in him but I wouldn't make it obvious. I would just glance at him here and there during lab. Sometimes he would look back so id look down. After a while, he started to pass by me more often but he wouldn't look at me anymore. He just looks down.
A few days ago, out of nowhere he talked to me. He asked me something about class. At the end of our lab, I took advantage that he was alone so I went up to him to ask him how to do something. He looked surprised but he smiled and kept looking at my eyes and he helped me.
Lately, he just doesn't stare as much though. He will glance once in a while during lecture but that's it. He doesn't stare. And he won't make eye contact when he walks by me. He ll look at he floor, even though he passes by pretty close to me and pretty often. I guess he started acting that way since I started to look at him more. When I went up to talk to him, it looked like his face lit up and he was happy I went to talk to him. But idk.
It seems like he lost interest. If he even was interested. I don't know why he stopped staring. Is it because I didn't look back? What I exactly am I supposed to do when being stared at?

Always amazed me that women ignore guys that are interested in them and can't figure out why (not aimed at you personally - just a general observation of many similar questions on this site).
And yeah, he doesn't think you are interested in him. So in order to salvage what's maybe left of his interest in him then you are going to have to take matters into your own hands (if you are still very much interested in him, still).
You are going to have to take the initiative to talk to him for a couple of minutes, direct that conversation into personal matters and then get him on an instant-date over coffee ...if he's interested in you then he's probably not going to say no to coffee with you.
If you are too late to salvage what could have become a relationship between you two, then he'll decline (or he could still decline if he still doesn't think you are interested in him despite you talking to him)1
