Assuming you find that person attractive, what puts you off from the idea of talking to them, or if you're not into approaching, what makes you not smile, give them a "signal", or whatever you do to get their attention?
I know not everyone gets intimidated by others, but we all judge someone when we see them and decide whether we want to talk to them or not, even if we're attracted to that person.

If he has an angry resting face then I'm gonna assume, like people do with me and my RBF, that he's not open to new conversations and being approached.
Or if he walks around acting like a douchebag (loudly mocking things, people, etc.) then I'll be put off from going beyond the finding him nice to look at stage.1

Might be in a hurry, for one. I won't be put off by anything when it comes to talking to women. I don't do the "signals" or try and get her attention. Unless she comes to me first, it's always me who starts the conversation.
In the past, I was intimidated by the fact that she would reject me, but that was brought about by some silly notion of "us". There is no "us", there doesn't even need to be any "real reason" to talk to her. It may as well be a friendly chat. Maybe it gets more friendly, maybe it won't. People are different. Rejection can and will occur and it doesn't necessarely have to be anyone's "fault". It's just how things go. Accept that simple reality and the colours you see will change.1
