Okay theres this guy I sit next to in a couple of classes and when I talk to him he comes off as mean in a weird way. My friends all think he's flirting because he doesn't do this to anyone else and because he's never had a girlfriend he doesn't know how to flirt. Help?

Tell us some things that he does that stand out to you! Be sure to include everything: be honest about it, don't worry about sounding dramatic. Cause I fee like the way you see peoples actions reflects that persons feelings.

I think hes flirting, but go with Teens advice first.

Just because hes never had a girlfriend doesn't mean he doesn't know how to flirt. That excuse worked in 6th grade but most guys by now have an idea of how to flirt. I have no idea what you should do but I thought I should point that out.

Avoid the assumption that he likes you, because you can't fully know in this situation. But if you like him and want to pursue a relationship there's nothing wrong with trying to get him interested

Well hes really jerky. He makes fun of me not in a mean way but joking around. Then he tells me that I'm too sensitive then I tell him hes a jerk and we battle back and forth in a way that goes on forever. His friends were like its sounds like your married. And yeah...

Don't make it a big deal. 
Maybe he's the type of guy that, like a lot of people, when people we don't know come to us or whatever & try to be smart or yeah whatever, we go on defense mode to not be hurt. At least I know I do that. Why? Because I've been hurt that way. So just be friendly not flirty & see how it goes (: Luck

The definition of flirting is teasing while smiling. As long as the intentions aren't hurtful, I'd say it's a yes! Maybe say something like "Well, aren't you flirty today?" and see what happens! Just say you were kidding if it turns awkward. As long as everyone is joking around, it should be no problem to slip it in! Best of luck! Keep us posted!

That sounds like someone I know, my brothers, 18,21, and 23 are all really cool, fun guys, but none of them have every had a girlfriend, when you just meet them at random they're really nice and friendly, but they have no idea on how to talk to girls, they just cant do it, and when they get in a situation they can't handle they go hard, really just kinda mean and withdrawn, I doubt its flirting with him, its probably just the same thing as with my  brothers, they just don't know what to say so they just go mean and hard - I'm no better though.

well if it was me, then yes he is definitely flirting with you. I tend to tease girls and fake punch em and all that jazz, but i always do so in a joking manner. so if hes giving you insults without eye contact and bad body language, i dont think he likes you. but im sure he could be shy and just doesnt know how the heck to talk to a girl he likes yet ;)
