We were at a party this past weekend (3rd time I've seen him), he said hi to me because our friend introduced me to the group. Throughout the night he was try to talk to me but after I responded he wouldn't go further "how are you?" "Good" "you?" "Good" that pretty much sums it up. He kept coming coming and sitting down on the floor next to me but would get up and move back to his seat. He did this about 5-6 times. I'm pretty nervous too so I didn't strike up a conversation. I caught him looking at me as I walked by a few times. But when I was leaving, I said goodbye and stood right in front of him and made eye contact. It was really direct and he started to stammer and then reached to give me a hug then pulled his arm back.
Is he just super shy and nervous? I just so believe guys will talk to you if they like you--- although it's definitely not always true just as it is for girls (even pretty ones).
