    Opinions please. I met this guy at work. He was super friendly/flirty at work. So much so other staff members thought he fancied me. I however, didn't think he fancied me as he mentioned he had a girlfriend early on.

    I made it clear to him that although there was a bit of gossip going on, I didn't think he fancied me and took his actions as him being friendly. I didn't want him to think i had taken him the wrong way as I hadn't at all.

    He used to sit by me at work and always wanted to be near me but I'm guessing that was because I was the only young woman there and he might have been a bit bored.

    He never initiated meeting up outside of work and would mention his girlfriend during the day.

    However, he will never be alone with me like he will everyone else. But the most confusing thing to me is that when we are out in a social group he is super flirty with almost every woman round the table but me. He also keeps going. On about how hot other girls are in front of me.
    He avoids me completely except on social media where he likes some of my posts.

    Now I'm not sure what's goinn on here but I suspect one of two things. Either he isn't interested in me and wants to let me know he's not interested by commenting on other girls.
    He has a crush so is trying really to make me jealous so I make a move (I've never flirted back with him).

    Could there be any other explanation?

    He is certainly very uncomfortable around me and doesn't chat nicely to me like he does everyone else. And I've never been mean to him so he can't hate me.
