HelloCustomer and thanks for your question.

I think he IS interested, but some guys like to keep their relationships with their friends and their relationships with the girls they may be interested in, separate. He may feel shy, to come over to you while with his friends, as they may give him a 'hard time' about it, joking around, etc.

Next time you see him, talk with him and ask why he didn't come over to say hi, when he was with his friends. See what he has to say. If you see him with his friends again, to over to him and say 'I just wanted to say hello, I see that you're busy, so I'll talk to you later'.

I hope things work out, and maybe you'll soon go out with him. If you don't know much about him, except that he's friendly and nice to talk to, meet him at a public place for a coffee or lunch, etc., and get to know him better before going out with him alone.

I am not sure about going over to him as it will show him i am interested in him and that will make him feel in control and i dont want to seem i need him and chasing him, i think he will loose interest. He might also not like it when i talk to him when his friends are around.
