Why Won't He Ask Me Out? He Seems Really Interested, But...

Ok so I've only known this guy for about a month, but I really like this guy that I work with (we work together at a restaurant). Let's call him Mike lol. It usually takes me more time to develop feelings for someone, but Mike just caught my eye and he's definitely caught my attention. He's been flirting with me from basically the first time we met, so naturally at first when he flirted I thought either a.) he was just joking or b.) he's just interested in one thing (you know)...and that's not the kind of girl I am.

But now the flirting is a little bit different. He jokes around with me alot and almost everytime he talks to me he gets really close and puts his hand on my arm/shoulder or on the small of my back. He'll tease me, but then say just kidding and pull me into a one-arm hug. One time another guy was talking to me, just a normal conversation, and Mike saw and said "Hey man, why you hittin' on my girl?"(jokingly to the other guy of course, but still...) And I have a ton of more stories about how he's called me pretty/cute, he's even said I distract him a couple of times...so yea most would say he's flirting....

But one time he tried to hook me up with one of his friends that I've never met. I just declined and let it drop...

He has yet to ask for my number...

And sometimes I get this gut feeling that there's some sort of reason he won't/can't ask me out...

He could be too shy...but with the way he's been flirting, that doesn't seem to add up

He knows I'm single, he's told me he's single...and the other day I feel like he got really close to asking me out but he didn't. We were both at work and I asked "So what time do you think you'll get off" He said seven, and he already knew I got off around 5-ish. Not even five minutes later, he asked "So what good scary movies are out right now?" I told him about one I really wanted to see and the fact that all my friends have seen it and I haven't got to because I've been having to work (hell-o?? dropping big hints here lol) He just nodded and made a comment on how he heard that movie was scary too. And this wasn't the first time he's asked some variation of: when do you work next, what are you doing tonight, what do you do for fun etc.

So it seems like he likes me...but he won't make a move...maybe he's just a flirt (but I dont think I've seen him do this stuff to any other girls...not like this) i don't know...but I feel like if I were to ask for his number or ask him out that I would find out that secret that I feel like he's hiding and I'm not sure I want to know...and also I'm a strong supporter of 'the guy should make the first move' thing. I know this is so cliche, but even though I've only known him a month, it feels like much longer than that.

Can I get a little help here? It would be very appreciated!
