I meet this guy often at my company and we always greet each other normally. Actually, in the beginning he barely even nodded, but since then he has gradually become "warmer". Once he said hi with such a smile and low voice that I thought he was just really shy after all.
But then maybe I was mistaken and he isn't so shy, because he's the one arranging some sort of Christmas related event to which just a few people, including me, were invited...
Anyway, I'm thinking this is a good opportunity to talk and such and must be a good sign, yet today we made eye contact I suppose accidentally twice, and both times he turned away REALLY fast!
What's going on? I thought he wanted us to be friends?
Maybe he doesn't want me to think he's interested in me or something, but I wouldn't think that anyway just from a simple look...
He's not the only reason I'm attending that event, but if he thinks I'm repulsive or whatever, why invite me, right?...

It's hard to judge eye contact as a sign of anything these days.
Sometimes a stare means nothing, sometimes everything.
May be he is shy. Remember it’s the office. The office is a weird social experiment. Can you flirt? No, you shouldn’t.
Can you joke around? No, get back to work.
What’s most important is what he does and what he says.
If it isn’t romance you are looking for, then it doesn’t matter anyway as long as he is polite and friendly.1
