Why would a guy desperately want a girl's attention?

Anonymous
Will he only do this if he likes her? This guy wants my attention all the time, he always finds excuses to around me and stares at me from afar but ignores me up close.. we've made eye contact a couple of times.. me and my friends have caught him staring at me when he thinks I'm not looking several times.. he never does talk to me though but is very comfortable talking to other girls going so far as to hug them etc and is an outgoing guy.. I've tried talking to him like 2 times but he was rude to me both the times (well once I insulted him a lot calling him a creep, telling him to see a psychiatrist etc.) I'm really confused.. is he playing around or does he like me? Though if he was just a player wouldn't he talk normally to me? it's bothering me because he is always trying to get my attention
