I recently changed jobs and a guy there immediately caught my eye. He would often look surprised or even startled to see me. But would engage me in conversation but it was minimal and awkward.
Although I am shy I decided that I was going to talk to him. I wasn't going NOT try like I usually do. We went from awkward hellos to friendly conversation and playful banter in a matter of days really. I truly do believe that he was interested by the way he would look at me and how receptive he was to our conversations.
He told me he was leaving and that hit me like a ton of bricks because I really felt a connection. I told him I would miss him and he insisted that he would see me around and he would be back to visit. I wanted to ask him was that enough for him or ask him out or for contacts but I couldn't work up the nerve. And he did nothing.
Did I drop the ball or did he? Why didn't he ask me out? I thought I dropped plenty of hints. What is going on with the guy brain? I miss him and I barely know him. :/

The problem is that you're "dropping hints". Why not just ask him out? He's probably just shy.
Situations like these is exactly why you should not just give hints. You're only frustrating yourself, and the guy is not psychic. Grow some ovaries and ask him out, stop sitting by the sidelines.0
