my policy is to give minimum importance and reactions. i dont completely stop talking, but i try to talk the least bit reqquired. i think it is mostly a helpful policy as i dont have to be blunt and direct. what say u?

I usually try to avoid them. I am such a blunt and straightforward person that, if pressed, will speak my mind quite strongly. I would much rather just stay away from a bad situation entirely, if possible. So much more peaceful that way.

Thers is gud n bad, like n dislike similarly the other side can't be avoided. Face situation boldly, in this process you will always be assissted with your friends and dear ones. If it is in personal life you directly say that you are not interested to talk to them. If they are your relatives then you juz maintain hai and bye. If it is in professional life, maintain professionalism just make the person stay in limits. cut the topics if he/she speak sumthing other than work. REmain mute and if situation demands be aggressive. Be with your friend/collegue when you have to deal with such persons.

I'm sure they can tell. I have a very druy attitude in general, and I'm sure it is worse with them. I probably have very little expression when I speak to them and say very little. It's hard to maintain a conversation or relationship with smeone if they won't say much to you. It generally works.

you wouldn't know if i like a person or not because even when i hate somebody i still talk to them just like the way i talk to my friends. but what i do to avoid them is i try to not look at them straight in their eyes. or maybe if i see them coming i just pretend that i don't see them. in other words i'd rather be with them in a same place and just pretend that they don't exist than just avoiding them.

I avoid people I don't like by not talking to them but if they try to talk to me then I would listen to them giving them least of my reaction about what they were talking to.

Some times no tactics of ours work to avoid them . We just have to suffer from their company!

Treat them as strangers. Do you hate or like strangers? For me, there is no like or dislike. I would be able to talk to a stranger compared to an enemy or someone I dont like. Treat them as strangers, respond only you need to. If there is no need for you to talk, by all means, keep quiet. In this way, I don't offend them. They can "blackmark" me for all I care. If you can, treat them as friends :P
