Now I find this guy to be really attractive and had he asked me out I would have absolutely said yes, but the staring threw me for a loop and being fairly shy myself I was not the type to take the bull by the horns and ask him out, especially since women are often told that if a guy is sufficiently interested he'll find some way of asking you out, so I did nothing, except feel self conscious every time I passed him, however the situation got me thinking about him and just as the paranoia was abating and I'd started to look at him in a different light he stopped coming to play ping pong.
About a month passed by and I didn't see him around the building at all - our paths don't cross in work situations - and I started to wonder if he'd left the company, but then I spotted him at the holiday party in December and hoped to catch his eye, but unfortunately the man passed right by me and didn't even look in my direction, just when I was hoping that with both of us fortified by alcohol we'd at least get to talk. Since we've returned from the holidays I've spotted him once in the cafeteria, when again he walked right by me and didn't look in my direction. It's possible he didn't see me, but my gut tells me that the bloom is definitely off the rose, a situation I find immensely frustrating given I now find myself interested in him just as he appears to have moved on.
Any advice? Should I just move on too?

Hi, Guys are strange ... I'm taking his initial reaction that he liked you, but maybe he was afraid to approach you, thinking you may be out of his league? And when you didn't go for the 'look' and do the head tilt thing guys do, he probably thought you were not interested. So now he decided to ignore you. OR he could be playing hard to get. I'm not sure if you are brazen enough, but maybe you could 'run' into him and make conversation with him.. If he shows interest, (simple conversation) 'how about those eagles...?' LOL and see what he does or says. And watch his body posture too. Turned away, not looking at you in your eyes, he may not be confident enough to talk to you, or he's just not interested anymore. I would start with the first suggestion.. Run into him if that doesn't fly, then move on. How do you carry yourself? Do you look down when you walk? Or head up, shoulders back? He could of read your body as well.
