He's shy, popular, disappears quickly, making it impossible!

Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
OK I guess this is a double question of is he interested and advice on how to approach this guy. So, let's just call this guy "Bob." Me and Bob have been going to the same schools since we were young just like everyone else in this small city. There have been preteen instances of me temporarily crushing on him, but that was when I was young. That's different now.

Over the past two years I've come to realize that I really like this guy and I want him. The problem is I'm shy. So I've tried to create situations which he will have to talk to me or when he's alone so I can talk to him. Unfortunately, he seems to be the shy type :/ or a type that I can't figure out. When he's with his friends (girl and guy friends) he's personable and funny. He's not nervous with other women and his guy friends at all. Then all of a sudden around me he doesn't say much and doesn't make much eye contact from what I can see. I'm really confused!

There are numerous instances where it has led me to believe that he may like me. When he walks with his friends in the hallway, he doesn't look at me and I glance just to see if he is. When he's walking alone, he seems like he's trying hard to say hi to me. We smile at each other and say hey and continue on our merry ways. We've had some conversations since we both like video games and since I've gone to the same school since young it has given me enough time to understand his interests.

Then, there was one time when I was at my locker and no one was around and he was just walking alone. All of a sudden I hear a "Hi, ." And I see Bob just walking away after that. And the times when I just walk by before class starts and he does something silly to catch my attention and says my name. But then there are other times when we have barely any contact at all.

Also, there's the issue of his friends. Because he's popular, he's constantly surrounded by his boy/girl friends. He also goes out for lunch and walks around with his guy friends so it makes it impossible to find a good situation to strike up a conversation. After school he has a car and a licence so he disappears right away too -_- this guy is really infuriating me with his methods!

I swear that there have been so many times I've thought to myself that I'm just going to outright confess to him but it's kind of hard with all the traffic around him. He's such a nice guy and makes me laugh. I'm surprised that I've come to like a nice guy...maybe I'm a romantic. Anyway, I kind of think he likes me, but I just want some back-up insight.

As for the approaching thing, I guess I'm just going to have to wait for my chance to jump in.

Sounds like he may like you too but is shy with you.

Try finding out his online addresses and contact him that way. Otherwise you will be left trying to wait for the right time which may never come.

Take the easier route and go online.

Good luck! George
