    Everytime I walk somewhere where it's just him e.g. in a room/coffee area he'll immediately walk to another area/room. It's weird. It happens everytime (to the point where it's very obvious and almost hilarious). We work together so it just makes things awkward between us. I'm naturally quite shy and don't speak much so do you think that's all it is? He has never bothered to initiate a convo with me either like the closest that has happened is when i first started work and he teased me about something but said it to the girl next to me (who he knows) but loud enough for me to hear. I don't smell, look/act weird. We're both 20 if that's relevent. I just feel left out alot because everyone gets along but i feel awkward around him.

    The reason could be literally anything. But you probably shouldn't pay too much attention to it. Maybe you should try to join conversations where there are our a group of co-workers and him. Maybe he just fears awkward silences so he doesn't attempt to make conversation with you. I feel like the only way you 'll find out is if you ask him why he avoids you. You could use that as a conversation starter, e.g. if you stop him before he get to escape and make a joke out of it, something light hearted and friendly.

    He could genuinely not like you, or it could be the exact opposite - he likes you and freaks out around you / doesn't know what to do around you. Could be something else but I'd say it's unlikely.
