This is part of a more complexed problem but here's the small part. I'm 20 and I go to college. The major I have choosen is predominatly male. So I was say all my classes are 95% male. Anyways a new guy came out of no where a semester ago. He seemed shy and didn't really talk to anyone. But he'd always be the guy to say thanks when you hand him a paper or be there to bless you when you sneeze. Nothing more than that with anyone. Then this semester i've started talking to him. For a guy who seems shy it's amazing how much he talks. If we get a break in class we will just talk for an hour straight, like getting to know you stuff. I had already developed a tiny crush on him before we started talking because he's a pretty good looking guy. Now it's sooo much worse, because he's also soo nice. Here's the things he does:

*He remembers specific things I tell him. Specific details that even my best friends might forget.

*He knows what gets to me and he'll use it to start convo with me (I think). It seems like we always start talking after he makes fun of where I work or something like that.

*He'll comment on something like where I work, where I'm from, or he'll point out how I inject the word like or the phrase "I dunno" in between sentences.

*If I look at him he'll give me a big smile

So anyways Wednesday I was going to lunch with one of the only girls in my class. I was in the middle of a conversation with him and class was over. And he kind of stops talking and says bye. So I was like hey wanna go to lunch with us? And he did! Anyways lunch ended up being from 12:45 until 4:30!! We just eat and sat and talked and generally ignored the other girl. Then I took him to his car after lunch and he just jumped out really fast and said bye!

Ahh! I don't know what this means? I'm soo confuzzzzzzzzzzzed I don't understand. Let me know what you think!

Sounds promising. He probably knows you're interested now. Just play it cool, relax a bit, and see if he makes the next move. Try to just be yourself for a week or two. If he doesn't make a move, I'd go for it and ask him out.

He may want to take things slowly since he just transferred there and probably wants to meet more people. Just relax and let things take their course. There's no hurry.
