Guys, what does it mean when he says he doesn’t like you but yet still stares at you with eyes like he wants to talk to you but gets too shy?

Ok so, about 2 years ago, I REALLY REALLY liked this guy and since our school was selling Halloween candy bags and I asked my friends (we are no longer friends) at the time if I should get him candy and so they told me yes and so I got it for him. A few weeks go by and since my ex best friend had her last class with him, she comes up to me with lollipops with his name on it and she told me that he told her to give it to me. and then I was actually starting to get the feeling that he actually liked me back. but then, like a week later my ex best friend tells me “oh he told me the truth” and i said “about what?” and she didn’t want to tell me the reason why or why she was trying so hard to keep it a secret. So then some conceited guys come up to me and her and basically start teasing us about my crush and asking if I liked him and I stupidly said yes and that’s when the truth was revealed that he didn’t like me.

So winter break goes by and my ex best friend tell me that another ex friend of mine was dating him but I wasn’t bothered by that because i didn’t like him anymore or so I thought. so a few months go by and they had already broken up. BUT then she tells me that another girl (who listens to everyone’s business) told her and my ex best friend that after he and my ex friend broke up, he started to put eyes on me “apparently” but I didn’t think too much of it. So this same guy has been staring at me.

Throughout the entire middle school year up until freshman year (now) and we sit together in biology and he doesn’t listen or talk to me but we still make eye contact with each other and he sometimes looks at me with a smile. So I don't know please help me here someone😭🙏🏻
