    what does "i'll see you around" mean?

    was at school and a guy who apparently likes me but is not interested in a relationship saw me in the computer lab, sat by me and started chatting. when he left he said, "i'll see you around." what does this mean? particularly when considering he has made absolutely no effort to see me. i know he is busy with school and work, but hrmm...?

    It's just another form of good-bye. It doesn't mean anything and I wouldn't read anything more into it.

    It means he'll see you around school.

    "I'll see you around" is a common expression that basically means "Later--I'm sure we'll run into each other at some point".

    I'm not sure if this expression is North American or not, but it's quite common. It doesn't really mean anything significant and shouldn't be taken overly literally.

    It has two different meanings:

    1) See ya later. (Really, see ya later)
    2) This is it, nice talking to you. Have a good life.

    Just another form of saying "bye, see you later". I don't think he meant it as he'll see you later and get together for a date (if that's what you were thinking, or hoping for).

    its confusing for me. why would he bother to even talk to me? he could easily just not have, i would not even have noticed him. i kind of wish he would just not.

    He's just being friendly, and unaware you have a crush on him. I don't think he's intentionally teasing you.
