How To Ignore People

Ignoring someone can be tough, especially if you can’t stop running into the person you’re trying to avoid, or if that person keeps trying to talk to you and doesn’t get the memo. Avoiding eye contact is the best way to ignore someone. Once you lock eyes, you’re acknowledging that you know that person exists and are blowing your cover. If that person is near you, avoid their eyes at all costs by making sure to make eye contact with every person but them, looking straight ahead, or even looking at the floor.If the person is shorter than you, then just stare right over their head. If the person’s taller than you, make sure not to look up.
If the person is the exact same height as you and standing nearby, try blurring your vision so you have a “dead” look in your eyes if you do lock eyes by accident. Another way to ignore someone is to walk as quickly as possible. This will show that you’re a busy person with places to go, and that you have no intention of lingering around to catch up with the person you’re ignoring. Walk with your arms at your sides and your head held high, like you’re staring ahead at your next goal, even if you’re really not going anywhere special.If you see that person approaching from a distance, leave enough space between you so you don’t brush up against that person.Don’t talk to me, buddy,” and hopefully the person will get the message.Don’t smile, either. Keep a straight face, or even a frown, planted on your face to look like you don’t want to talk to anyone.
You can also go for the creepy blank look on your face – that will scare anyone off from trying to talk to you.
If you have longer hair, bangs, or a hat, try to keep part of your face covered to discourage the person from trying to make eye contact.
