Why would a guy who's not your boyfriend get jealous when he sees you talking to another guy?

I was just smiling at and waving at this guy friend of mine and then we were talking so I don't know why my classmate got jealous.
Updates:
My classmate has been acting like he has a crush on me for a long time. Yesterday, he saw me talking to this guy who's in a different class. We met after a long time and we were waving and smiling at each other in class. My classmate was watching us the whole time. After class got over me and my friend were talking to each other alone outside our college building.

My classmate was with his friend and when he saw us, he walked over to us and stood near me and kept talking to his friend.
While I was talking to my friend, my classmate interrupted me and said "Why are you ignoring us today?" (The friend he was with is a mutual friend of ours).

I said I wasn't and that my friend and I had met each other after a long time so we were just catching up. He said nothing and continued to stand near me and kept talking our mutual friend. He kept doing this the whole time me and my friend talked. After he left, my classmate asked me "Do you guys go home together?" I said no lol
I didn't have enough space in the update box lol but there's more to it. I found his question odd and it didn't make any sense, he knows I go home alone and he's seen me go alone several times so I don't why he asked me that 😅

  • Well in this type of situation the context is most important. If you two have had sex, biologically you are married. After sex you release oxytocin the bonding molecule but after a woman has slept around she can no longer bond and she will flirt with many men. Hence “can’t make a ***** into a wife. For the man he releases vasopressin which makes him possessive over his woman. Now most women are offfended that a man feels possessive over you but if a man did not feel responsible for you if danger came he wouldn’t care just as a promiscuous woman is emotionally numb to pairbonding.

  • LOL sounds like he likes you or has a secret crush on you that he hasn't been able to express to you because of fear that you'd get uncomfortable around him and then THERE GOES THE FRIENDSHIP. This is classic behavior of underlying feelings for someone that guys do and don't know or aren't aware they show.

    • No not at all. He's not a close friend.

    • Well then that makes it even more odd how he tries so hard to get your attention when around or talking to other males. He plays it off by inviting other friends along, but he's making sure he's in your face or a distraction between you and other guys. Maybe it's not SO serious, but it sounds like he likes you more than just a friend with these actions. Or he's really looking out for you.

    • Also how can I tell which one it is?

    • I don't know, I'm just guessing, though now I think it should've said psycho instead of crazy lol

  • My guess is, shy introvert with no social skills whatsoever with massive crush on you. Tried lightly, could be your knight in shining armour, could be Charlie Manson's second cousin!!! Either way, he's not gonna have the stones to open the lines of communication so you might as well corner him, in a public setting of course, and get some Intel on this guy before he make a bigger fool of himself next time he gets jealous. Maybe you'll get lucky and find yourself a socially awkward sir lancelot.

  • I think it's more normal for a guy to get jealous if he isn't your boyfriend, because when he's your boyfriend, he assume you love him, but while he isn't, he is competing with the rest of the guys for becaming your boyfriend, therefore it's normal he get jealous about every evidence of you are more interested on another guy.

  • That guy likes the woman and is working up the courage to eventually make a move on her. He becomes jealous when he sees another man threatening to take that potential opportunity away from him.

  • He wants you but since he's not your boyfriend that's going a bit far. If he doesn't want to be in a relationship he's probably trying to use you by be jealous and keeping other guys away

  • He's acting like that because he wants to be special to you. If that means boyfriend, well I'm sure he'll give it away in some way shape or form. (Watch his reactions to certain comments)

  • Dude still is crushing on you. You need to put an end either the friendship or make it explicitly clear that he gets no say in what you choose to do in your relationships.

  • Let's start the answer from the tough to simple. Some people have a weird habit that they don't like sharing their people (friends, family members or some important people). I don't like to do that too. Now from what you told me takes me to a conclusion he's jealous and insecure.
    Imagine you have a crush on a boy and he is catching up with another girl, won't you be jealous? Maybe you would understand but no one can completely understand the point that is positive. There's still a bit of thinking that says Something is wrong.
    He has probably generated some feelings for you. Moreover his question about you going home alone was also an insecurity because even if he knows you go home alone he'll think about the possibility that he (your friends whom you met after a long time). My brain clearly says he likes you a lot or maybe Love because I don't know a lot so can't judge.
    If this Answer feels inappropriate then feel free to reply and give me more details...

  • He thought he might have been special to you and he's not. He also thinks you're hot, but he's not a creep. There might be something more, like he wants attention, he knows dirt on that guy, or guy know dirt on him, or he doesn't like him, or he's jealous that you give that guy more attention or physical contact, he doesn't think he's good enough for you perhaps, there's a lot of things, but you can't assume anything as fact. Playing the assumption game is crazy and if he won't have an honest conversation about his feelings then you don't need that crazy.

    • He likes you and he's worried he did something to make you dislike him. Why is it that you think he's creepy? He also is scared your talking with a bunch of "friends" to keep your options wide. And Franky he's probably right that you have slot of options and he's probably not on the top of the list. He fears that once you meet someone better then he's gone. And to be honest it seems like you met an old friend a d ditched him, so yeah you bailed on him. If you choose to hang out with your old friend without even giving him a chance then it's a you problem for not wanting to make new friends. Get out of your comfort zone and get closer to your classmate!!!

  • I haven't liked anyone for a very long time, but i think that he probably likes you. (Yes, you can call me captain obvious)
