There's this guy I'm into and I've known him for ten years and we use to be friends in grammar school until we grew distant. We started having classes together the last 3 years and we occasionally talked and joked with each other but nothing really happened. This year we have no classes together per se, but we're always in the same room, or area of our school. Anyway, since school started, he's been walking really close behind me and my friend when we go to class. I mean, one day I glanced over my shoulder and got a big eye full of his chest. In addition, he'll ask me about classes I might be thinking about taking. For example, he asked if I was taking another version of a course we used to take that got canceled. At first, I didn't think anything of it other than he was curious, but then we had a combined music class where he met my music teacher.

What does it mean when a guy is always around but rarely speaks to you?
What Guys Said
Talking about being in an awkward spot. Man this is gotta be tough on him. Being friends in the past and now being attracted to you. I can bet he's feeling goofy inside and he doesn't want to mess it up. He probably talks about the past because he knows it's something in common with you and it's makes it easy for him talk to you and not sound like a bumbling fool. Well at least he got as far as asking you out so that right there is a hint. How to go forward in this situation well I don't have an answer for that. I wish you best of luck in this.
What Girls Said
It sounds like this guy might be nervous to speak to you, so he hangs around and doesn't say anything because he doesn't have the guts. When you see him maybe try starting up a conversation with him, and make sure you smile and make eye contact when you see him.
He's also trying to find out what classes you have and where your going to be, most likely because he wants to "accidentally" bump into you.
The fact that he kept making noises etc. when you were together says to me that he likes you, as he feels uncomfortable and nervous in your presence and feels the need to keep moving or look like he's doing something.
I think to work out for sure if he likes you you might have to drop a few hints and see how it goes from there.
Best of luck! :)
