How do you know when a shy guy likes you?

The guy that I like isn't shy around his friends, but he's very quiet when he's around people that he's not that close with. Sometimes I catch him looking at me from the corner of my eye. I ran into him during class today, and I gave him a smile but he looked kinda nervous and walked away. How do I know if a shy guy likes me if he keeps on giving mixed signals?


P.S. We're kinda opposites. I'm a bit preppy, and he's got a much darker side. Sometimes he seems really friendly, and other times he seems distant.

Update 2:

I'm a shy person too, so there's no way that I'll be able to get the courage to ask him if he likes me. I AM nervous around him already, so I don't know...

    We don't bother to look at girls out of the corner of our eye unless we think they're hot. And if we think they're hot , we're interested in them. No exceptions - that's how we're wired. If you have caught him doing this, then he likes you. No ifs, ands, buts about it - that's how us guys work. Foolproof.

    We don't waste our time looking at girls we don't think are attractive or don't like.

    Yes. But I think there's a difference between being coy and desperately shy. Soft spoken can be endearing. But if it's to the extreme of saying, not wanting to go out or something, it cramps a relationship.

    Speaking as a shy guy myself it would be better to make the first moves if you like him. He probably doesn`t know what you think and what exactly to tell you. He might think that he will say something stupid or out of place because he is nervous. So if you can show him that you don`t think he is awkward he might be more relaxed.

    staring is good. if they try to make it look like they are looking around the room when you look back at them... even better.
