I viewed the Facebook profile (clicked on a couple of pics, etc) a few times (5-7 times) of a guy at uni I've become infatuated with very quickly. We don't have any mutual friends and we'd talked for some time (not briefly but not for any significant amount of time) for one evening. If I want to send a request I check that we have mutual friends/wait until we've spoken a bit more before doing so, which is why I didn't add him.
FB apparently makes people that have actively searched you appear in your People you may know list - officially it is denied but there's quite a few reasons to think that this may be the case ( I certainly have a few with no mutual friends on mine)...how likely is it that I appear on his, based on my activity? Is it creepy?
Even worse (sigh), he's a third year Comp Sci undergrad so it's likely that he would know/have some idea about how these algorithms really work (hell there's even a second year module dedicated to algorithms).
Asking because I'll be seeing him around quite a bit and really don't want things to be awkward. Also, have I blown my chances with him?

Even if this algorithm does exist, he will not see you in his list and think "Woah this girl searched me" since a) I doubt he pays that much attention to the list b) he probably doesn't even know about or believe in this hypothetical algorithm c) Mine's always full of randomers from my uni anyway, so he is probably also use to being recommended other students.
