Why does he stare but not talk to me?

So I like this guy, and I think he likes me too, but I'm really not sure! I don't know if he knows that I like him or not, but he always stares at me! It's funny because I have never talked to him! I'm pretty sure he's staring at me Because we always make eye contact and hold it for more than 2 secs and I get a little uncomfortable and look away. Sometimes, he'll smile or he'll look at me with this look it's really hard to explain. When he's with his friends, and I come in the room, they'll all stop talking and look at me. When I walk by him, he'll turn his whole body around so he can still see me. He even stares at me when I'm coming down the stairs. From the way he looks at me though, it looks likes he's interested. He had a class with my sister and he asked her if I had a boyfriend. When my friend asked him why he asked, he said he just wanted to know. In class, I sat beside him and he'll flirt/tease me, like there was a time where he punched me. He also had his locker beside mine, and I noticed that he'd open it, look in it, then close it. Sometimes I feel likes he's trying to eavesdrop on one of my conversations. His best friend knew me by name and I never even knew who he was! Sometimes I feel like they're (him and his friends) are joking about me=[. I also worked with him, and on the first day he was trying to tease me like when this girl asked me to get the trolley, he said "Why don't you make her pick it up and bring it here", and he smiled at me. Also, we had to go in the freezer to get something and we were both alone, and he said hold on a second, and the girl came back and said that he said I was "uncomfortable". He also used to say to her, "What did your dad say about your hickey. " and he'd make it sound like they had sex (they totally didn't). We were always scheduled to work just the two of us and he'd never say anything to me. He'd only help me if I needed it, but we never talked! I didn't talk to him only because I got the feeling that he didn't want to talk to me. There were so many chances, what a shame! One of these guys I hooked up with showed up at my work and asked me why I never called him & shit, and the whole time I was talking to him, he was staring at us and listening! Then he went to go talk to him after. He always stares at me when I talk to other guys. I told this guy that I worked with that he always stares at me, and behind my back he went to go ask him if he thought I was hot, and he laughed, and he said "no seriously, do you? ", and he still laughed, and walked off! This made me a little upset. One time at school, when I was walking to my school, him and his friends were sitting on the benches, and one of his friends said to him "Look who it is", and pointed at me, they both looked at me. I got the feeling that I was just a joke to them and stopped looking at him. Can someone please explain to me his behavior. Is he interested? Why does he stare at me so much?

What's Your Opinion?


Most Helpful Opinion

  • He's in the early stages of liking you and is probably just either a bit unsure whether you like him enough for him to go up and to talk to you or he hasn't had the chance yet.
    If you like him, start flirting (e.g. don't look away so quick; look for three/four seconds or do the "look away after 3 seconds and look back for another 2 secs" thing as most guys pick-up on that) and I'm pretty certain he'll respond well.

  • Yes, he stares at you cause he likes you, but it seems he is afraid of being ridiculed. Since we guys are so immature, this is what we do. We hang out with other guys and talk about girls. We all love to brag about the girl we got, specially if she looks hot. Even if we don't have a girl we still want to prove our studliness by talking about ' hot girls'; suddenly you find yourself liking an average girl, and by that, I man she is not a model. So now you're afraid that your friends will ridicule you, even if these friends got no girls of their own. So it seems that this guy fits into this category. Look at his answer, 'no seriously, do you?' Instead of being a man, and saying what he truly thinks, he needs to get the opinion of another guy, that way he is not exposing himself to ridicule. Sounds to me like an immature guy that likes you, but afraid to let his friends know about that fact cause they might make fun of him.

  • It most definitely means he likes you, no kidding. If he didn't like you, he wouldn't be doing all that now, would he? Plus he might just feel like he's the one bothering you, so don't be scared

  • He's interested but the locker thing creeps me out a little bit. I wasn't as bad but I used to do the staring thing to girls I was attracted to. Good chance he's afraid he'll get the answer he won't like so he keeps his distance. What the deal is with his friends I do not know. If you are interested, confront him yourself and make the first move. If not, confront him and tell him the staring is bothersome and to quit it.

  • It's because he's mentally sizing you to see if you'll fit in his freezer, run from this man

  • Just do him girl. You need sexual releas.

  • okay, are you kidding? he is so totally in to you but just don't know what to do. He's really shy of you but try to make an impression so you'd be impressed or something. I have this crush I was trying to get over does the same to me except he don't talk and looks at me more often and he's really popular so all his friends spy on me. :-P I never felt ease in my classes anymore. They sort of take-notes down eveything I do.

  • HELL YA HES INTERESTED I kno dis becuz this happend to me, but I don't think he likes me nomore because I was playing hard to get toomuch but ya he likes you but he thinks you are a liar because first you told ur friend you had no boyfriend so he believed her but then he seen you talkin to him about ¨calls¨so that must really hurt him a lot and you kno how guys are with their ¨pride¨and thier MR.
