He doesn't know I exist?

I really like this guy, but I'm pretty sure he has no idea who I am... He is really shy, and so am I so I'm not exactly sure what I should do? I feel like I might mess something up!

Yeah, I agree, I've known plenty of shy guys and the best way to approach them is to just be you, and start from the beginning. I know you can do it! Don't put yourself down because you're setting yourself up to fail if you do. Deepest prayers to you :)

If he's shy take it slow. Say hello. Ask how he is. Keep it up for a few weeks. Small talk, and then start asking more personal questions. Establish a friendship, and then ask him if he wants to go for coffee or something. Keep an eye on body language though. If you're talking to him and you get the feeling he wants to run for his life, you should probably forget it.

Well, try small talk and grow a friendship. Then do small gestures like slipping your hand int his and drop hints. If he is uncomfortable back off and let him cool down then build the friendship back up.
