Don't know what to make of it.
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
I am a 21 yr old woman who is currently pursuing her masters. I have been attracted to this guy since my undergraduate days, who coincidentally was in the same institution with me even at my masters level.
During my UG days, I broke the ice with him when I saw his foot bandaged one day and enquired after his health. We became the 'hi and bye' acquaintances with not much in common to talk about even though we shared all the same subjects. The only thing which would give away his attention on me would be the longer-than-normal eye contacts, sneaky glancing whenever we were in the vicinity of one another and looking when either of us talked to the opposite gender.
One day, my stupid best friend called him up with good intentions asking him if he had any feelings for me. to which he flatly said no. I was too mortified about this exchange to even look him at the eyes anymore. When our UG exams finally finished, he started a chat with me on a social website where we discussed a little bit about the institution we both were joining for our masters. When I asked him something slightly personal ( not even like what's your favourite food), he claimed that he had to go for dinner with his friends and logged off.
Finally we join our new academic institution and I don't see him for 4 months. I conveniently deleted him from my friend list because I wanted to get over my feelings for him. Suddenly, I see him at a friend's party after all that time and he says hi. I was way too nervous to make much of a conversation, so I nodded my head and looked away. He felt my discomfort and placed him in the second table both of us facing away from each other but sitting quite close. During that time, I literally over-poured all my 'charms' on this other guy who was sitting with us and he seemed interested.
Meanwhile dinner was over and we all headed out to make small talk and leave. I completely ignored him because I had gained my cool by then. Just then, he came up to me and my friend himself, introduced and enquired after my friend and then shifted his attention to me. He was very attentive to me and his eyes never left my face for long while we were conversing. We even had a staring moment then. As he left he made it a point to emphasize that he would like to see me again.
Now all the feelings that I suppressed for him has flared to the forefront again, though not as strongly. I don't know what to make of it. Please help. Thank you.
I think you have piqued his interest. Maybe he was not interested before, but by his approaching you and saying he wanted to see you again, that's a major clue that his feelings seem to have evolved. I'd just keep doing what you are doing. Be friendly, but don't look too eager about it. He seems to like you in spite of what happened before. I hope it works out!
