i think if this happens to me you wont see me at home often and i am sure my wife will understand me. i dont have the patience to live up with people or hide what i feel. you will see me out of the house or doing something inside my room our bedroom. the eldest sister of my wife she dont like me so i dont like her either. we just talk civil then i just go out of the house or sleep when she is around.

Irritating people...... Wow, it's sad that whenever she come around you don't feel at peace in your own home. But then again it might seem rather odd for you to keep hanging around when she is there trying to have some sister time. Anyhow if I were you I would kill her with kindness. Which means to go out of your way to try to be nice to her. It could possibly be that she dislike you because she may feel like her sister should have married someone else but love don't always work out like that. Anyhow if you bring some games into your home and suggest that everyone play then that might just help to reduce some of the tension. Humm to say she don't like me so I don't like her is being kind of childish. Why not be the bigger person and show extra effort to welcome your sister in law and to make her feel at home around you. Hope this helps. Wishing you all the best. take care............

well how will you know that i am childish if you dont really know me? well i tried everything but still it was nothing. she will be kind and good but after a month or so she will be her own irritating self again. if there is someone who is childish then that is not me. it is her. i tried to play games and stuff, gave her nice gifts every christmas and other ocasions, but nothing wirks. i am only human i know to draw a line too. i wont force myself to someone who does not like me in return. i reached out before but nothing happened. so its natural to give up as well

When you don't like someone......... Hello friend, sorry to hear that you were irritated by this person. Well for me I've been having to put up with certain people and things that I didn't necessarily like for almost all of my life. When I was growing up, there were quite a few people that I didn't really like in my life but I had to put up with them. I guess all that I"m really trying to say here is that sometimes people may need you to show or share something with them. You should try to think what it is about the person that you don't like. I don't believe that we come into the world hating people, to me that's kind of unatural. Well i will be having some visitors soon and even though I don't really like them, I"ll be putting up with them. Simply because they are my hubby's friends. Let me clarify something though, it's not that I dislike them but I just don't feel like we have a lot in common. Sometimes the female will try to guess things about me and even that get underneath my skin sometimes because I don't like for people to think that they know something about me when they really don't. Anyhow take care and try to maintain a loving spirit.Peace out!

to begin with whywould you invite guests to your place that you did not like? and why did you have to bear with him for the whole week? If its a guest that my family had invited and I disliked I wou ld just stay the heck away from him or her.but my family except my'son are all gone so I dont hAve much of a problem. But if I were in 'that situation I would stay away from the irritating person completely. let the relatives get mad. its not' your fault that you cannot stand the person.

I have been known not to answer the phone or the door! There was a stage when I seemed to attract irritating people that for some unknown reason attached themselves to me. I used to catch the bus to work every day and all I looked forward to was reading my book during the long trip into town but no, not to be! I got stuck with this girl who would sit next to me every single day and talk non stop about c**p! I tried to sit at the back of the bus but she would always manage to sit near enough to talk to me. I am not mean spirited I just could not cope with so much gossip first thing in the morning! I had to bear with it until I left work to have my baby and decided not to go back; I bet she's still on that bus annoying someone else!
