I have a friend (though not a close one) because he has his own set of friends and I have mine. We were classmates before and then i frequently noticed that whenever I talked, he seems interested even though he's not included in the conversation. I don't mind it of course. WHat happened next was quite out of my control. He was my classmate again now that I'm in college. For the first two weeks, we do talk and laugh a lot. There was a short period of time i think 2 days where in we don't talk that much then after that, when he looks at me he has a glazed expression. He was called by our teacher and then I smiled at him coz he had that glazed expression while looking at me. It was only later that he realized he was called. then not only that while I was walking, he sort of put his hand on my shoulders and leaned on me while we were walking. i'm quite confused with his actions and please help me find a way to avoid him when he is my classmate

Avoiding him may not be possible. The only thing I can think of for you is this, state your concern. If you want him to leave you alone then tell him so, avoiding it for long may cause more problems in the end.

The best thing to do that will cause less pain and trouble later is just tell him that he is a nice guy but that you don't have those types of feelings for him. If you say nothing then he may think that you purposely led him on and that could lead to all kinds of unpleasantness if you remain classmates.

cjgrooms is right. you must tell him what you think. you must talk & tell him everything. if he is nice person then he will understand.

And if he isn't nice you need to know it up front so that you can protect yourself.

Dun avoid him.. FAce him bravely and dun let him take advantage of u easily.. Friends are just friends, there are supposed to be limits.. Maybe he is interested in u, and maybe not.. SO get his intentions clear before u decide to do anything ^_^
