Okay, so there is a popular guy and everyday, I always catch him staring at me. Me and my ex-bestfriend, both like him but she doesn't know that I do, but he wouldn't even give her a glance but he'd always look at me, and smile. He's popular and a sporty guy, I'm the unseen girl, that noone ever really notices. What does that mean?

Being completely honest, staring sometimes means something, but it often means absolutely nothing. Rather, staring by itself is too little of a "sign" to take by itself.
The thing is... When you crush on someone, you develop a thing I like to call "crush bias." What I mean is that because you like someone, you want this someone to like you back. Therefore, you start trying to establish "signs" that may be there, but often they aren't. For instance, a crush may say to me "Omg you are so cool!" to me and I'll be like "Wow, she really likes me back and is just trying to hide it!" In reality though, she has a boyfriend and is just being friendly to me. Crush bias puts more meaning into things that don't mean much, and it makes you think the crush is paying more attention to you then you think.
Are there any other signs besides him staring? Like any interactions or whatnot. And just to make sure, do you stare at him a lot? Because he could be just wondering why they someone is staring.
It is difficult to say. You could always approach him if you'd like, but I would talk to your friend about that first... If they are still a friend.
I'm not here to say that there is no chance he has no crush on you. He very well could be. However, I have seen many questions like this before. It very often means nothing and is your mind playing tricks on you.0

What do you mean what does that mean? Don't go after someone if you don't want to, and don't be intimidated just because he's popular. If you both like eachother go for it0
