    Looooooooooooooooong story short...

    There's this guy who works at my local grocery store. He's extremely cute. We've made eye contact a couple times. He's stared at me from a distance while I was looking away. He asked me for a cigarette once, but in a very strange manner.

    And I'm way to scared to go up to him and say hi. Dx

    you should probably talk with him ....if he likes you and sees that your interested in him then things will go well ...if he just wants to say something to you then he will eventualy say what he wants...just talk with him there is nothing to lose

    I think you should be more closer to him.
    Actually you can be his friend first , then best friend and then..... oh if you know what I mean...
    Chance will never come back , take it now and believe in your gaydar man.Good luck icon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    Do your research, try talking to him and find out if he has a girlfriend, what type of music he's into etc etc.

    These facts will help you to determine whether he is into guys or not and then you can make your move.

    After talking to him for a while you should be able to pick up on any vibes and remember the eyes never lie.

    well this is probably going to be generally viewed as horrible advice, not that I'm telling you what to do but I automatically assume all guys are straight unless they say otherwise.
    I don't read between the lines, never been a telepath though it'd be handy, but I'm not going to bother trying to decipher little things as 'possible' signs of their personality because people are naturally complex, influenced by their immediate circumstance/environment and so it could be pinpointed to a million things.

    Instead just opt to be genuine friends and if he wants you to know, he'll tell you.
    Take heed though because you don't also want this to turn into a "ZOMG I'm crushing on my straight friend" etc...
