I actually don't get what you trying to say. Care to explain further?
Sure thing! The guys who do this aren't expecting you to fall in love with them, when they're trying to get your attention. What they are hoping for, is that you'll interact with him, and by interacting with him; give him a more fair chance at making a connection with you
Does it mean he wants the girl to approach him first?
Yes. Again, he's probably not actively thinking about it, but you approaching him certainly wouldn't hurt! Women really need to get more proactive about expressing interest in guys.
Cool. But is the guy even genuinely interested at the start or he just wants some attention?
What he wants is to interact with you, and learn about who you are as a person.
Like what kind of stuff when both of them aren't close?
More points of contact.For example,Like find a reason to talk to you,Do favours,Try to know you more , like get information about what you like etc.

Urmm but won't you think that is slightly shallow to do that?
Honestly, is a guy trying to get the attention is for his ego or more to because he likes the girl or is it that he just wants attention?
Could be any of those reasons
Doesn't ring the bell :/
I'm sorry it doesn't ring the bell
