I really need some advice from some guys, or even some girls who have had some experience with "shy" guys because I'm just about ready to throw in the towel. See, there's this guy that I like...we're sort of like friends, but not so "close" that we're in the "friend zone". He's a little on the quiet/reserved side, but he can loosen up and be quite funny and somewhat outgoing when the situation presents itself. He's just not a loud, in-your-face type of guy.

Anyway, I've just been noticing for the past few months that he gets really weird and shy around me sometimes! Like, for example if I come up to talk with him, or if we're in a group, he'll avoid eye contact with me! Almost like he's deliberately trying NOT to look @ me. I'm like: "ummm...okay...what's up with that?" I know I haven't said or done anything to offend him, and I'm a nice person, so I don't think he would be mad at me for any reason. But then, at [B]OTHER[/B] times, he can be real talkative/friendly, and he can look me in the eyes for a short period of time. It's very strange. He's hot and cold. One minute he'll be acting nice and will even compliment me, but other times he'll act really aloof. Or, if we go to the movies with some friends, and if we sit together, he'll be so stiff and nervous! It's really frustrating me because I don't "bite", and I would like to get to know him better on a more-than-friends level, but I get the impression that he's just not interested in me. His behavior is really wishy washy. He can be so easy-going and talkative with other girls, but around me he sometimes turns mute! Yet, we can chat online, txt message, or through e-mail without any problem.

So, I have a few questions:

-What does his behavior mean? Could he just be a moody guy with mood issues? Or is he just REALLY shy sometimes?

-Am I analyzing things too much? Or, do guys [B]deliberately [/B]act aloof towards girls sometimes? Maybe he's trying to give me the hint that he's not interested. :confused:

-And more importantly, Should I just give up on him and assume that he's not interested and forget about him? Cuz I'm really starting to get tired of all the "wishy-washiness".

Sorry this post got so long, but I figured it would be easier if the "facts" were put out there. Thanks for [B]ANY [/B]advice anyone can give me, because I'm really about to just forget about him.
