    You are interested in him right? Then you must be curious about him and his life, interest, etc. Find out what he likes, or even better ask him stuff to find out what he likes. Normally, when people talk about something that interests them, they'll be more open and enthusiastic about it.
    Or find out something that you both have in common (but i know that's hard lol)

    where? My class is too quiet and focused on the work that I dont think he'll appreicate me distracting him from his work since we always get loads. do you think it will be weird asking to sit with him during a free if hes by himself even if theres loads of free tables around him?

    i spoke to him today outside our class and he seemed really bored/disinterested when i tried to speak to him, as soon as his friend came he started talking to him and went inside the classroom together. he seemed more talkative than usual to his friends but really quiet and mumbly when i tried to talk to him.....should i see that as a sign as he's not interested or just accept that hes really shy?

    Yea, if a guy leaves you while you having a conversation, it kinda means he's not interested. If you really like him, I'll say give him some time and see how he act

    Find out what he enjoys doing, and do that with him. Or invite him to do something with you.

    Great way is to pretend you need help with some work in class. If the class is really quiet wait till after and say something along the lines, 'hey *insert name*, i noticed your really comfortable with this topic and i didnt want to disturb u in class but i was wondering if i could have some help just getting my head around some stuff'. or something similar. setup a time to go library or whatever, and just take it from there.

    He will jump on it if he likes u. I honestly dont think he does but, yeah a guy who likes a girl will take any opportunity to talk to her.

    If he dont like you like that he will make a bunch of excuses. But its not the end of the world.

    For me personally i think he just genuinely doesn't know u like him. But how old are u if u dont mind me asking? just so i can give have a better idea of the kind of advice to give

    Who cares? You want to get to know him better, right? Showing interest is a good thing.

    im 16, I don't really mind if he doesnt like me in a romantic way since we dont really know each other that much other than we're in the same class, also bc im new to the sixth form and nearly everyone was at the school already but I would like to befriend him and get close that way as i understand that it'd be weird if he liked me back for no reason....i just randomly have a crush on him for no reason but just want to be friends at this moment in time bc not enough time for a relationship w alevels

    i might try your advice if i can think of an excuse, at the moment all of the work we're doing (art) is pretty much get on with it and do it bc it isnt that hard atm thank you

    Don't be afraid to escalate physically. Touch him and tell him he's cute. Worked for me, is how I hooked up on multiple occassions in fact.

    Try finding similar interests? What I did was always ask him about coursework or what uni he is applying to and then it just goes from there but it's still so awkward.

    Yeah..you have a crush on him without even knowing him. Stop being so superficial.
