So a couple weeks before school ended this guy in my class started talking to me. He switched into my geometry class at the semester and at first I thought he was cute but he kind of looked like a jerk. But then when he started talking to me, I found out that he was actually really cool and nice and I started to like him A LOT. There have been a few times where he even winked at me and I just melted inside. Then one day, our teachers decided to change the seats in class. She ended up putting me and the guy I liked really close together and when he realized that we were sitting near each other, he turned around from his chair and smiled at me. Since we were sitting closer now in class we started talking a little more about school and the sport he does. And there was one day in class where he kept turning around from his seat and smiling at me. I really thought maybe I had a chance if I played my cards right. My friends told me I should ask him for help in class but I was the smart one and he the not so smart one, so I wasn't going to dumb myself down for a boy; plus he already knew that I was smart. But, the last few days he has started to talk to me less and less. I don't know if it's just because he is concentrated on finals or if he isn't interested. I have a feeling he knows that I like him and he doesn't like me. One of my best guy friends even guessed that I liked him just by my actions and that I always smile around him. Another problem is that I don't have his number and I don't want to ruin things by asking him if he doesn't like me. I'd rather be friends with him then not talk to him at all. And by the time you get this and answer it I will probably be out of school and we have no way to talk to each other outside of school. I mean I kind of know the people he hangs out with but I'm not exactly close with those people. I know I have a really really detailed situation but I was wondering if there is any advice you could give me.
