Does the shy boy like me back?

Ok, let me start from the very beginning.
It all started when I was in 6th grade. It was the beginning of the year, and I finally stopped liking my 4th/5th grade crush (whom I liked for a while).
I soon started to gain interest in another really sweet boy. He's always been really shy, and I had a huge crush on him. I was head over heels for him (I still am). I am shy myself, so when I liked this boy in 6th grade, it didn't seem like he EVER showed any interest towards me whatsoever.
One day in reading class, I kept starring at him and he caught me. He had a super negative reaction to it, so I really am scared to talk or make contact with him.
Now that I'm in 7th grade, I still really like him. Lately he's been acting super weird and different around me.
These are some of the things he's been doing for the past 2-3 weeks:

•Constantly starring at me for a super long period of time when he thinks I'm not looking. will look away super fast when I catch him
•He and his friends are always whispering/gossiping about me, and his friends are always judging me
•Shows signs of nervousness when I'm around him: playing w/ hair, keeps glancing at me, seems fidgety/dead silent, etc.
•Brushes against me lightly (skin touching) when we're close/ always gets close to me when he gets the chance
•Seems like he wants to talk to me but can't physically get the courage to
•Blocked me on social media for no reason
•Mimics/copies my body movements

And much much more.

Please tell me what you think. I'm super confused, and he's sending mixed signals (sometimes acts rude or ignorant, or acts shy or nervous).

Thanks!

He probably does....But it will take a while for him to get the guts and make a move.....The blocking part is just probably nervous of what you'll think of him...

That's what I was thinking. He is probably just nervous of what I think of him, just like me. I'm shy myself, so hopefully next time I catch him staring at me, I can at least get the courage to smile at him and slowly but surely make him a bit more comfortable around me.

Seems like he doesn't know what to say, I'd just wait till you can say something like this: "are you ok?" And yeah good luck

It sounds as if he may like you...or maybe is trying to gain your attention...but blocking you on social media is...odd...along with some of the other things mentioned...is that what...I just realized I sound old for the statement I was about to make..but, as I was stating about your problem...You might have to either wait until he makes a move, or strike like a Tiger waiting in the bushes when he passes by doing what he does...(Biological tiger or Tiger H...), but in anycase, See More▼

I've asked one of my friends about the part when he blocked me on social media and she said that maybe he's scared of what I think of him and doesn't want me to see his posts. I'm not really quite sure though. I've done a lot of research as well, and it seems like he just doesn't know how to come up to me or something, but I've read that shy boys tend to send See More▼

That may also be very true, although until either party makes any indications, it will be a rather signaled mystery. Like that of a person signing slightly to another person whom does not know the language.
