Should I Have Hopes?

There's this guy I know from one of my classes and we've 'noticed' each other recently. In the beginning, I thought he was cute and funny, would always look at him. I didn't think he would ever notice me back really. At one point, I turned during a class discussion in the direction where the person was speaking. Although he was sitting directly in front of the person talking. He had this sudden different expression on his face at the time. I turned away and really didn't think anything of it.

After class, I walked outside on the sidewalk, he suddenly walked up really fast beside me. I didn't know he was there until I looked over. His eyes widened and I just starred for a few seconds. He immediately started to walk a little after faster, yet looking behind him at me. (Two days later, for the same class, I actually dressed up nicely for him, lol. However.. he wasn't there. Eh, bad sign?)

Well, the next week, for an 8am class, I ended up running into him that morning. He was walking out of the building, as I was going in. I thought he would try to move to another door but he decided to come through my way. This time, I was listening to my music while going to class. We both just looked at each other, he cracked an uneasy smile, looking at me and I smiled back. I kept the door open for him, I think he said thank you ...but, I couldn't hear him exactly. (oops).

Later that week, during class, we had a test. He was done earlier then me and that was it.

Do you think I would.. possibly have a chance? I have a lot of bad luck with men. Either they already have someone or they're not exactly interested, (or they like to play mind games/player on me). What are your thoughts? How should I approach him?---I'm quiet, shy mostly. He seems energetic, outspoken. Maybe he has someone already?

Giggle, I wouldn't begin to gauge interest levels until you've had a few conversations with him and know that he's single.

From what you've said he is giving you the look and moving in closer proximity to you then yes that means he's attracted. But it might not go further if he's really unavailable. Sounds like the right direction so far, though. Good luck.
